Well, I am not actually "famous". But I certainly FEEL famous!
I was surfing around blog sites the other evening, looking at cards, and I happened onto the site for Tami White. She was Stampin' Up!'s #1 Demonstrator last year. Number one! And didn't I just about fall off my chair when there in her March 15 posting, I saw MY CARD!! That's right...MY card! Mine is the white card with the red rose buds. I submitted it to a Stampin' Up! contest last Spring - which I did not win - but Stampin' Up! told us they might use our submissions on some of their display boards at Convention. Sure enough, they must have displayed my card, and Tami saw it and liked it, took a photo of it and decided to post it! So my card is posted on the blog site of Stampin' Up!'s Number One Demonstrator. How very, very cool is that?!?!
The photo is a little blurred, and my own photos of this card are not much better (I was in a hurry to send it to the contest. And I didn't have a blog last year so I wasn't concerned about a decent photo). But I can show you the "twin" card that I sent to my mother for her birthday a year ago.
The roses are made by punching 3 bird wings (Bird Builder punch) and sponging around the edges of each. They are glued together and the leaf and stems from the Bird Builder punch are altered a bit and glued together to form the foliage. The sentiment was heat embossed in gold, then punched out using the Decorative Label punch. A Cherry Cobbler frame was created for this, and a Modern Label punched piece was split then used beneath this.
The white on white background (Vintage Wallpaper embossing folder, Eyelet Border Punch, basic pearls) lends it all an elegant feel, don't you think?
I loved both versions of this card and really hoped I might win Stampin' Up!'s contest last Spring. But you know....it is almost as gratifying to see my card displayed on the blog of their Number One demonstrator! It certainly makes me feel famous!
Hope everyone has had a wonderful day. And may you all enjoy a Peace-filled and truly Blessed Holy Week. God Bless, ~Cynthia <><
