Hey ỳall! Smiley from millan.net Well it’s taken all morning long, in between loads of laundry, etc., to get one card finished. I take Mallory back to school tomorrow, and I must admit that there are a few things I won’t miss when she’s gone – her extra laundry and the trail of junk she leaves behind as she moves through the house. I’m sure it’s going to take me just about a week to get things back the way they were before she came home for the summer. Ah, something to look forward to!

When I checked in at Splitcoast this morning, one of the first things I looked at was the Featured Stamper Challenge. I don’t often do this challenge, but today I just couldn’t help myself. Today’s Featured Stamper is Jessica Rone a/k/a knightrone on SCS. I’ve been watching Jessie for some time now and absolutely adore her work.

For those of you not familiar with this challenge, the idea is to look at the Featured Stampers SCS gallery, and CASE one of their cards changing two or more things on the card. I chose this card from Jessie’s gallery. As you can see, it ended up looking nothing like Jessie’s card. I guess you could say I used it as inspiration more than CASEing.

Anyhoo, here’s my card:


I stamped the images on white paper, colored them with Copic Markers, and then masked them with Eclipse Tape and airbrushed the water. To add a little fun and dimension to the images, I added some Stickles on the Sea Floor image. After working on the background panel for a while (they all ended up in the trash), I ended up spritzing a piece of Lavender Lace Cardstock with Broken China Gold and Pearl Shimmer Mists. The ribbon is some new stuff I found yesterday on my Hobby Lobby trip. It frays a little when cut, and I had my lighter in hand trying to singe the ends. Well I slipped! So there was nothing else to do, but finish melting the rest of the ribbon. I like it so it stayed! It wasn’t until I was taking the photo that I noticed the last brad is crooked – let’s all ignore it and pretend it’s not there!

  • Stamps: Sea Floor Background, Simon and Dive Right In from High Hopes Rubber Stamps
  • Paper: Neenah Classic Crest Solar White; SU Old Olive, Not Quite Navy and Lavender Lace
  • Ink: Ranger Adirondack Pitch Black, Archival Jet Black and Broken China Distress; SU Old Olive
  • Accessories: Copic Markers and Airbrush System; Ranger Stickles, Gold and Pearl Perfect Pearls, Mini Misters; Eclipse Masking Tape; Tsukineko Sponge Dauber; Brads; Ribbon; Lighter

I hope you enjoy the rest of your weekend! I’m off to finish up the laundry and see if I can get some more stamping done.

  1. Absolutely gorgeous! The coloring is striking and it’s the cutest card ever! You’ve done a marvelous job ~ TFS!

  2. Sherry, have a question: Which ink do you use for coloring images that aren’t embossed to keep from smearig? Normally I use images that are embossed, but sometimes the image doesn’t look good after trying to use H20 or some other type of shiny marker/glaze pens. I have SU’s classic black in stock 🙂 Thanks for your help, Gigi

  3. Adorable…..hmmmm….wonder if I order the stamps today would I get them in time to make a card for Sun?!! BHWHAAAA (yeah….as usual, I’m behind)
