Double dose of BevR!

Did you all see yesterday's Featured Stamper on SCS? It was BevR, who hails from England and MAN that girl has some serious talent! Her coloring and accessorizing abilities are amazing!

It took me almost an hour to decide on a card to case and I kept changing my mind. There were so many I wanted to try, I ended up doing 2 cards!!


The first card I chose is called Snow Baby . I changed the color scheme, image and used flowers instead of snowflakes. My card uses an image sent to me from my friend Janette from Pink Cat Studio, Basic Grey Urban Prairie DP, primas, flowers from TAC and the sentiment is from PTI Birthday Basics. I colored it with Copic markers and used crystal effects on the hat and box band. Here is a picture of some of the supplies I used.

Next, I chose Strawberries and Cream Cakew to case. I kept with the wedding cake and use of Basic Grey papers, but changed the image, paper pack, used pearls instead of bling and changed the sentiment panel.

The cake is colored with Copic markers, has Angel Wings Shimmerz on the pink flowers and liquid pearls on the 'dots' on the cake. The Primas are also painted with Shimmerz. The buttons are Basic Grey Bittersweet


Here is a close up of the cake and flowers. If you click on it, it will enlarge and you can see the liquid pearls and Shimmerz!

For those Twilight fans, I now have an Edward of the week picture on my side bar! Shamelessly, I stole the idea from my girl Jodi (kharmagirl). So, those of you with the Google Reader will have to click in and check it out!!

  4. Lovely cards. The second one is so soft, I love it!

    I see you have fully succumbed to Edward now too LOL! I just bought Meyers' The Host at Costco and will begin to read it just as soon as I finish Follett's World Without End. Julee T. said she liked this one more than Twilight so it will be interesting to see if I agree. Hard to believe anyone could match Edward!
