Woo hoo! Received my copy of Stampers Sampler Catch Up Issue 2011 today and there on the wrapping it said I was published. I tore thru the magazine and found three different cards. Two were current, but one was a couple of years old! I could tell the difference in my style and see my creative growth. I also noticed work from a number of my fellow bloggers. Congrats to you too!
The current pieces were based on a tape challenge. In the purple one, I used patterned tape for the background. I find my patterned tape at Michaels on clearance so, its only .50 for a nice sized roll. The second card has masking tape ruffles with an image from Artchix Studio. So for both, I added vintage images, netting/lace, german scrap, rhinestones, appliques for dimension and stamped sentiments. For the last piece, which I think looks very simple now, I created a pale blue ink well template and stamped the feather quill. Layered pattern paper, more stamping and rhinestones to complete it.
Well, happiness is being with you , dear friends.
Till next time, gerri
