It's been awhile since I've played in the Featured Stamper challenge over at SCS but when I saw that the FS was Susan, AKA LateBlossom, I knew I had to play along.  I've been a fan of Susan's work for quite some time.  She is the Queen of Clean and Simple as well as doing an amazing job of embracing the white space.  This was a challenge for me and I've never done a white on white card before but I love how it turned out. 

All supplies are from a muse|studio and be purchased at my webstore 24/7.  Don't forget that if your order is more than $150, contact me directly so that you can get your hostess benefits.

Susan made two cards with the same layout and different colors and shared them on her blog.  I love how the vibrant colors just pop off the white.  I will say, I'm still scared of the white space and had a few choice words to share when I got a fingerprint on the top of my card.  My 6 yo suggested I just erase it--if it were only that simple, right?  I did carefully wipe at it with a baby wipe and got it off but the card is a little messed up where I wiped it off.  It's barely noticeable but bothers me especially since I was already done and admiring my handiwork.

Since I already had a bunch of stuff out, I decided to give a one layer card a try--that was a challenge and you'll have to come back soon to see how it turned out :-)

Thanks for visiting!

  1. This is such a fun CAS card! Love the shadowing and the balance of color! TFS

  2. The story of my life! Finish a card and it's a really good one, then smudge it with random ink from my work surface or my fingers! >.> Or ruin it with a sentiment stamp that didn't impress all the way...I have taken to adding something over the smude(a real or paper button/bow/sentiment poped up on dimentioanl foam/a strip of deco paper). By this time, you've invested too much time to start over.

    I love your card and often wondered how you get the squares even all around? or do you just eye ball it? LOL And hope for the best. I also love the double stamping without reinking the stamp, it does 2 fold, gives great impressions and doesn't waste ink! =D

  3. Paulette,
    I couldn't find your email address to answer you directly but I just eyeballed the placement--I put the 3 pieces down several times and then held my breath and carefully stuck them down when it was time to commit :-)

  4. I just love your cards! Thanks for visiting my blog, now I get to see your fabulous creations!

  5. Don't you just hate when that happens? That is one gorgeous creation! Try using your heat gun to remove your panels then re-attach to another card base.

  6. Great CAS design, Kathy! Your mishap sounds like something I would (and often) do. Great save though!
