Stamper's Dream Dreamy Challenge

This month the Stamper's Dream Dreamy Challenge is for each of the Dream Team members to CASE another DT member! Tosha drew names and gave us the assignment as to who could case whom, and my assignment was to case Tosh! Geez.....is it any wonder I was skeered? I mean, really!!!

The card I chose to case is her Tree-mendous Love card. I have been drawn to the fabulous design of that card since the first moment I saw it. Even though I have the Tree-mendous Love stamp set in stock, I decided to change it up a bit by using a different OCL set called Life is Sweet !

I stamped on watercolor paper using Onyx Black Versafine ink, then embossed with JudiKins Detail Clear embossing powder. The stamped image was colored using Tombow markers.

I added Heidi Swapp Bling Cherries to embellish.

The designer paper is Waterberry by Kaiser Craft . I added Frosted Lace Stickles to the punched lace border, and the sprinkles on the ice cream. The ribbon is by American Crafts. The cardstock is Blush Red Prismatics light and medium.

We would love for all of you to play along with this month's challenge! In fact, I have this prize for the lucky winner of the random drawing. All you have to do is case ANY of the Dream Team members and link your card in this post. Be sure to also include a link to the card you cased. If you post to the SCS gallery please use SDDC6 in the keywords so we can find it. I will announce the winner in my regular post on Thursday evening, March 26.

Check out what the rest of the Dream Team has come up with for the challenge! Charmaine , Cindy , Denise , Kimberly , Laurie , and Tosha

Thanks so much for stopping by!

I have only recently discovered your blog and shop. I am not sure where to ask a question...I am trying to find out more about what you mean by "watercolor paper." Do you have a recommendation for a brand, or "type"? I am so eager to try your technique. Your cards and the coloring are always just outstanding. Thank you for sharing.

I really, really enjoyed looking over the DT's cards and it was extremely hard to pick just one card to case, but I went with Laurie's beautiful card here:

And this is my CASE of it:
