A Glorious Day - FS 77

I DO love it when I can find the time to play along with the Featured Stamper challenge on Sunday! And I did just that today!

Today's featured stamper is Julia aka artystamper . She does such beautiful work, and there are so, so many gorgeous cards in her gallery. The one I chose to CASE is HERE .

I changed the paper and the stamps, but used Julia's inspiration and the coaster frame concept and tutorial from Amy Rysavy at Prairie Paper & Ink . The tutorial is perfectly clear, and I had no problem at all following Amy's instructions. I will admit that using the Mono Multi liquid glue gives you a huge advantage since you can wiggle the paper around to fit before it dries!

The stamp is Hope Your Day from Wordsworth. I stamped it using VersaMark ink, then embossed with JudiKins Malachite embossing powder. I wish my photo was better so you could see the gorgeous specs of copper in this ep.

The butterflies are Designer Butterflies from Hero Arts. I borrowed this technique from my friend Laurie . They are stamped on vellum, embossed with the same Malachite Embossing Powder , then cut out. They are adhered only in the center so the wings can have dimension.

The designer paper is from the Basic Grey Perhaps collection.

I have some things to do for the store today, but hope to get in a little more stamping time. (Fingers crossed!) Thanks for stopping by. I sincerely appreciate each and every one of you!

How beautiful! I love the embossing and the way the sentiment just jumps off the page and grabs the eye! Love the papers and scalloped edges. Great card!
