Faux Tile for Featured Stamper!


I am so excited that I was asked to make a sample for this week's Technique Lover's Challenge over at Splitcoast...thanks, Julie!!! The technique is "Faux Tile". Check out Julie's tutorial HERE or my previous Product Review on the Scor-Buddy HERE, in which I use the same technique. I have used three different stamp sets from Our Daily Bread designs: the flower and butterfly images are from the "Don't Worry" set, the scripture verse is from "God Loves You", and the stamped frame is from "Flower Frames 2". The designer paper is by Memory Box, the pearls are by Zva Creative, the ribbon is by May Arts and the bow was tied with a Bow Easy. Though not very visible, there are several layers of "Pearl" Glimmer Mist and some Lace Stickles for some added shimmer. The ribbon was "ruffled" by adding small pieces of Scor-tape under each loop of ribbon...it took a few minutes, but was very easy to do....with no glue gun!


I have also incorporated this week's Featured Stamper Challenge in this card as well. Because of the fantastic layout, I chose this gorgeous card from Krischir's gallery....wow, her gallery is awesome!!!

I have also included the following challenges in the making of this card:
Corrosive Challenge: Things that move;
Paper Sundaes: Adorn Those Corners;
Stampin Sisters In Christ: Encouragement;
Crazy 4 Challenges: Script Paper or script embossing folder (this Memory Box paper has script on it, but most of it got covered up...you can still see some at the top center);
Speedy the Cat's Friends' Challenge: have a bow on your card;
Paper Cutz: Anything goes;
Charisma Cardz: One for the girls;
Delightful Challenges: Flower Power.


Thanks so much for stopping by today! Not sure if I will have a post on Tuesday, but make sure you come back for the New Release/Blog Hop for Our Daily Bread designs on Wednesday, December 1st!!!
