Featured Stamper Blue Butterfly

Hello Everyone!!!  This week I was able to play in the Featured Stamper challenge at SCS!  The FS this week is Tenia Sanders-Nelson who has a lovely CAS style.  Now CAS as you know, is not really my thing, but I was inspired by THIS CARD and was also able to play with a new background stamp by JustRite!  :)  My Aussie friends will know that usually background stamps are too short for our standard C6 (6 x 4in) cards and we have to be a bit creative at times, well guess what??!!!  The new JustRite background stamps are 5 3/4in x 4 1/2in!!!  YAY, now a perfect length for our standard card size!!!  For my international friends, what does this mean for more having to perfectly line up your stamp to fit - you have room to play with if you are a little bit off!!!!  Happiness all round!!!  :)

Anyway, back to the card - I've used a base of blue bazzill and layered with yellow bazzill.  Next I've stamped the Scrolled Vine Background stamp by JustRite in Memento Tuxedo Black onto X-press It Blending Card and coloured the vines with Copics (B32 and Y21 & Y35 for the oval accents) and adhered this to the yellow panel.  Next I've cut some yellow with Fancy Tags 2, run some blue ribbon through it and attached it to the card.  The sentiment is from Shabby Chic Labels Four stamp set and has also been cut out with Fancy Tags 2 and I've snipped off the decorative pieces.  I've accented it with a 0.3 Multiliner using SU's Mat Pack.  Next I've stamped the butterfly from Botanical Butterflies (also on blending card) and coloured with Copics (B01, B32, B34, YR24), cut it out and glued it to the Fancy Tags panel.  Finally I added a blue bow and a couple of yellow butterflies accented with pearls.

The sentiment tag is gorgeous - you may have just enabled me big time LOL! Love yellow and blue together and of course, butterflies. Lovely job on this card.

That's really good to know, I like the JR Background Stamps but assumed they would be too short, which would totally do my head in! I like them lots, looks great with the label sentiment and butterfly too!

Wow! Gorgeous background stamp and incredible card! Stunning! I didn't know that about the standard size of your cards. I have envelopes that size from Hero Arts and occasionally make a card to fit. Anyway... love your JustRite beauty!

This is absolutely stunning Kathy.

Well, wasn't that nice of the Just Rite folks to make those backgrounds bigger? It really is a good idea all 'round.

This card is so heavenly, Kathy! The blue flourishes look so pretty.
