Featured Stamper 96 and Double Dog Dare Challenge


Hey, everyone!!! I finally finished the Featured Stamper challenge on Splitcoast and combined it with the Double Dog Dare Challenge I do each week with a wonderful group of SCS friends. Beverly (beestamper) was the hostess and she sent us a whole envelope full of goodies to make a card. I used the KI designer paper, the green Merry sticker, the ribbon and Studio G clear stamps (the trees and the snowflakes) that she sent.
The featured stamper this week was Anna (Annascreations)...WOW does she ever have a fabulous gallery!!! I decided to case her Country Snowmen card. I kept the same basic layout and Christmas theme but changed the colors, paper, ribbon, stamps, and added the trees and sticker. I also added the hemp to the ribbon like Anna did on her card. I used Stampin Up! buttons and the Joyful Peas stamp by Penny Black that I bought from Michelle at the Stamper's Dream. Have you been to Michelle's store yet?? She has such AWESOME stuff and I received my order within 3 days!!! Check it out!!!
I stamped the image with Memento Black and colored it with copics. I made the clouds with a shameful copy of Cindy's (Mothermark) cloud template and Bashful Blue ink. The round layers were cut out with Nestabilities, stamped with the Studio G snowflake stamp using Regal Rose. The tree images were stamped with Certainly Celery, cut out, and attached with dimensionals.
Thanks for visiting again today and I hope you have a great evening!!!
