Featured Stamper #91 and The Double Dare Challenge

Good Sunday Morning everyone!!! The Featured Stamper on Splitcoast today is Becca (Becca Stamps). Oh, my word, what a fabulous gallery!!! Everything is sooo elegant and beautiful!!! Two cards really caught my eye...one is this gorgeous poinsettia card and the other one is this beautiful welcome baby card. I was inspired by the layout and theme of one and the colors of the other. Thanks, Beth, for another fabulous gallery to be inspired by!!
The Rubbernecker star was stamped twice with Baja Breeze and Versamark and embossed with clear ep. Both stars were cut out, however, one was trimmed on the inside of the design and mounted over the full image with dimensionals. The background SU dp was stamped with the Rubbernecker holly stamp using Versamark and Baja Breeze and then embossed with white ep. The paper was layered over vanilla and Baja Breeze cardstock and the corners were punched with the Ticket Corner punch. Finally, the shear ribbon and half pearls from Flourishes, LLC were added.
This is also for the Double Dare Challenge I do each week with a group of SCS friends. The challenge hostess this week, Joanne (Sleepyinseattle), challenged us to make a blue Christmas card. Extra points are awarded for using non-Christmas paper. I hope Baja Breeze is blue enough and the SU dp is not a Christmas paper so I think I pass!!! You can see all the other DDC cards here.
Recipe: Stamps: Rubbernecker
Paper: Baja Breeze, Vanilla, SU dp
Ink: Baja Breeze, Versamark
Accessories: Clear ep, White ep, Dimensionals, Pearls, Ribbon, Ticket Corner Punch
Have a great day and thanks for visiting!!

I've been stalking your blog for some time now...I'm coming out of the closet to say "HI, and am completely in AWE at work (creations). Absolutely stunning!! Also, it just dawned on me that your live in Temple, Texas. My husband works there, but we live in Pflugerville. If you have a retreat, I would love to get together with "AN EXPERT".
