Featured Stamper & Big Blooms

Don't forget to check out Sunday's post for a chance to win some BLOG CANDY!

Sunday's featured stamper on splitcoaststampers was Kristina Werner aka starofmay. Her gallery and blog have some amazing cards and projects. I've admired her clean style for quite awhile and have several of her cards saved as favorites.

I had a hard time deciding which card I would CASE, so I finally settled on two. The first one I chose because it allowed me to use some items I've been neglecting - Au Chocolat DSP and Big Blooms. I loved both of them in the Spring Mini and was so sad they didn't make it to the Fall/Winter Collection.

Here is Kristina's original card and my version. The card is pretty self-explanatory, so I won't go into a detailed description.

Stamps: Big Blooms, It's Your Birthday
Cardstock: Certainly Celery, Very Vanilla, Au Chocolat DSP
Ink: Chocolate Chip, Certainly Celery, Pretty in Pink
Other: Pink Grosgrain, Target Gem

On my second card, I made a few more changes from Kristina's original. I don't have the Fall Flowers DSP, so I used Apple Cider and then coordinated my other colors from there. I also used a different sentiment, a different type of ribbon, and added a couple of flowers from Big Blooms.

Stamps: Big Blooms, It's Your Birthday
Cardstock: River Rock, Chocolate Chip, Very Vanilla, Apple Cider DSP
Ink: Really Rust, Chocolate Chip
Other: Twill, Target Gem
Technique: Paper Piercing
