In The Presence of Stamping Royalty

(regal and lively music playing in the background....)

The 100th Featured Stamper at Splitcoaststampers is.......


Wow, what a great pick for the 100th. There is no one else like Julie! And I feel proud that this past year I've been able to get to know her and work with her on the Dirty Dozen. She is a bundle of life, so funny, so creative, so well spoken...and has been a true gift to SCS. PLUS she has such fabulous style, she is the Queen of Clean...crisp design with such interesting eye catching elements. LOVE you Julie!

So, I was so excited to see it was Julie, that I ran to her gallery to look for a card to case, and I found a fabulous one....went to created, and then realized afterward that it was a card she had done for the Fan Club Gallery...so I hesitated to even post it - you're not really supposed to CASE Fan Club creations because they are supposed to be an exclusive gift to the Fan Club members....so I'm a little iffy on this post

Ok, if you ARE a fan club member here is the link to Julie's amazing card where you can see her brilliance :) http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/gallery/photo/497265?cat=500&ppuser=362

and here is my creation:


I kept the color palette, though it is River Rock, not a Champagne, changed the sets, patterned paper and accents, though I kept the basic theme. Julie's bow is FAR better than mine too. And, I added piercing around the oval and along the bottom corners.

The flowers are die cut Birds and Blooms Sizzlits.

Happy Sunday everyone!


Recipe: Stamps: Bella Toile, Elegant Thank You; Ink: River Rock; Paper: River Rock, Vanilla, Holiday Treasures DSP; Accessories: Sponge, Big Shot, Sizzlits, Gold Brads, Vanilla Taffeta Ribbon, Dimensionals
