Congratulations to my friend, Julia (artystamper), for being chosen the SCS Featured Stamper this week! Julia does AMAZING things with her cards and her gallery is a delight!

Here is her gorgeous card I cased.

I changed the colors and images, the layout slightly, and added ribbon. I swiped my Chalk inks all over the Whisper White in a random pattern. I then stamped the images from Stampin' Up!'s Embrace Life in Palette Noir Black ink, and then covered the whole sheet with my Versamark ink pad. I then embossed with Clear EP and cut out in one inch squares. The squares were then glued onto white chipboard inchies (Ellen Hutson). The Certainly Celery piece is stamped with the Canvas background stamp using Versamark (unable to see this in the photo!).

Stamps: Embrace Life, Canvas
Paper: Whisper White, Certainly Celery, Bashful Blue, Slab DP (behind CC and large oval punch), Textured Shimmery Bazzill Silver (cardstock base)
Ink: Versamark, Palette Noir Black, Color Box Chalk Inks: French Blue, Lime Pastel, Pink Pastel
Accessories: silver organdy ribbon, word window punch, large oval punch, designer label punch, white chipboard inchies (Ellen Hutson), Clear EP
Techniques: serendipity, embossing

Love the card you cased and yours is very pretty. I had picked that same card but, alas, things got in the way of my stamping yesterday.
