My Favorite Stamper is Featured!!

Susan (or lateblossom on splitcoast) is, without a doubt, my favorite clean and simple stamper.  She can take two stamps, no colored cardstock, maybe a small gem - and get spectacular results.  Her Splitcoast gallery is here.  Also check out her blog - she explains why each card works (and she often shows cards that she considers failures and explains why they don't work!)

When I saw that she was today's Splitcoast Featured Stamper, I was thrilled.  But as I paged through her gallery, I realized that CASing Susan based on the rules of the Featured Stamper challenge (change 2 or more things) is not an easy task.  I want to totally and completely COPY her cards - I don't want to change a thing!!

Having said that, Susan is the epitome of "clean and simple".  My style is more "clean and layered".  I picked a card from her gallery from over a year ago that was the reason that I own a tub of Flower Soft.  I got the Flower Soft then never got around to CASing her card - so here it is:

  • Stamps: Stampin' Up Stem Silhouettes, Papertrey Ink Signature Greetings
  • Ink: Stampin' Up Certainly Celery, Soft Suede
  • Paper: Stampin' Up Pink Pirouette, Crumb Cake
  • Accessories: Martha Stewart French Scroll border punch, Sweet Pea Flower Soft, misc pink ribbon

Gorgeous, Kim! I've never used Flower Soft but seeing this makes me want to try it. You've totally captured Susan's style! :)

I love Susan's style too...and I have several containers of flower soft...never opened! LOL! You've inspired me...maybe I should get it out and play!

Love this! I have had my flower soft since it became popular and have only used it once. I will be using it more after seeing your card and Susan's. Have a wonderful week and Blessings, Diane
