Hello There

Found a new challenge blog, (new to me) through a friend (Darnell),
where another friend (Joyce) is CASE designer with this gorgeous card.

The challenge is called Happy Little Stampers and they're celebrating
a one year anniversary selling their own stamps.
Although I don't own any HLS yet, it's OK to use other stamps for 
this challenge.

Joyce's beautiful card uses the cutout method, where the center is popped up,
and colored, focusing on the cutout!

Love this technique.

Used Lil' Inkers Stitched Ovals to double cut my window,
which is colored with Zig Clean Color Watercolors.
PTI: What the Doodle Feather Stamp Set

Did a card before this one,
and didn't like the outcome.

Ooops, messed up the stamping!
Stuff happens! 
Oh well...

  1. Wow,Nancy you outdid yourself with this one! It's stunning ,and very unique I love that you used the feathers ! Even the one you don't like is pretty! I made one I didn't like too, but never posted. :)

  2. Love this!! I didn't get the feather doodle thinking it would be too much to color, but I absolutely love how you used it in CASEing Joyce's card...absolutely stunning Nancy!! I made a card for this challenge too, but haven't had a decent day to photograph yet...sunshine and Spring are not available in Michigan yet...grrrrr!

  3. Wow, Nancy. I am staring at this gorgeous card trying to figure out all the die cuts, and where you cut and colored. It's a magnificant piece of work. Love that you used those feathers and your coloring is gorgeous. I just adore this card, and must try this one soon. Brilliant stamping all around. I know you weren't happy with your first card, but I love that one too. Thanks so much for playing along at HLS Case the Designer.

  4. Gorgeous and very creative! Love your choice of the feathers. The bright colors look awesome!

  5. Oh my this is fabulous Nancy! I love the sixties retro look and the layering up looks so intricate. Such a great CASE of Joyce's lovely card.
    Thanks for sharing with us at Happy Little Stampers, and I hope you will join us again soon.
