My Stamping Hero is Amy!

I have many people that I admire in the stamping world.  There is so much wonderful talent out there and so many creative women that I have met along the way.  But I would have to say, if I had to choose one, that my stamping hero is Amy Sheffer.  I have always admired her talent and eye for seeing things and actually getting them on paper (ha!) in such a beautiful way.

Today's Splitcoast Featured Stamper Challenge was #200 and we were challenged to choose any one of the 199 stampers that have been featured so far.


I chose this gorgeous Noel card of Amy's to case. I probably didn't change enough, but I changed the papers, ribbon type, die cut shape and image, and left off a couple of layers. Otherwise, it is definitely Amy's card - lovingly copied.

Oh stop it already - you're making me cry!!! You are just the sweetest ever! Thank you so much for the love today - it means so, so much! Big hugs! And your CASE is fantastic. I saw the photo before I read the post -- didn't recognize that it was a CASE, but thought "Oh that NOEL reminds me of that Penny Black NOEL I have." (Just call me flake! I've earned it over and over and over.) I love that background dp and the big brads in the corners!
