My online buddy Stamp Muse was named as Featured Stamper on Splitcoast a few weeks back, just as I was out of town... yikes, not great timing... so I missed out on a timely upload but hope to make it up with a few CASEs from her gallery.
The first is of Mono Butterfly, rather than use her technique I have stuck with my new Unity Stamp Co Distressed Dots and CASEd the panel theme, using a similar bottom panel, replacing the butterfly (don't do that often) with a star and sentiment for Father's Day (this Sunday). I have snuck in a piece of sunny card with the Dotted Wave punching on the bottom, this allows the card to also qualify for Raspberry Suite Color Challenge #16, which asked for Sunny Gold, Chocolate, Cream and Kraft combinations. The sentiment is from Stamp-It and I have once again used my Vintage Cream PaperTrey Ink.
The next CASEs Stamp Muse's Birthday Blast, following the space theme but changing up the stamps and colours. I finally pulled out these Sandylion Boy Clear Stamps which I picked up in NYC last year, this was just the right project for them. A little colouring in and some background stamping allowed for an OK CASE of this one.
And then I chose Spunked Up Silhouettes, I liked the embossing and simple nature of this one and tried to pull of a similar feel using this lovely Card Art Happy Wishes from Hero Arts. I stamped the image and then a portion of it along the botton of a piece of Creamy Caramel card in versamark and then embossed with Tim Holtz's Vintage Photo Distress powder. This stuff is really cool, you rub the top layer off after embossing and it takes away the sheen and applies a vintage feel. I applied Antique Linen Distress Ink directly over the embossing to get the background effect and applied the same ink to the other two layers of card. The sentiment is again from Stamp-It and I finished with some fine strips of the hay coloured bazzill I used on the second layer.
