Featured Stamper cards and a Cyper Monday Sale at HSE!

Hi everyone, I have 2 cards to share that I made for the featured stamper challenge this week -to CASE Mrs. Boz, aka CarollAnn! Not only is she incredibily talented and such a sweet person. I chose this lovely card to case. I couldn't get the black base to work for some reason, so I changed up the layers a bit. I used PTI's new Turning a New Leaf for the branch and {ippity} stamps Just Wanted to Say for the sentiment. The branch is adorned with some flower cupped sequins with a green bead glued in the center.

See that cutie butterfly? It's a new Martha Stewart punch that comes with 3 stamps in it to decorate the butterfly! Wha...?? Stamps with a Martha punch ? Be still my heart!

This second card is a difference version of the first. I found this fabulous houndstooth ribbon at Michael's bin and HAD to buy it. I have had a passion for houndstooth for some time now, sigh... Anyway, again I used PTI's new Turning a New Leaf for the branch and {ippity} stamps Just Wanted to Say.

This time for the sentiment panel, I masked off the little bird in the Top Note shaped stamp and stamped it in black. I then stamped the bird in pink, and cut it out. After I stamped in the You're So Fabulous sentiment, I popped up the bird and added a tiny rhinestone for it's eye. Of course, I added more sequins and silver pearls on this one and used my FAV punch, Upper Crest.

EDITED TO ADD: The HSE sale will be held over thru Tuesday! PayPal was having some issues last night and some people couldn't place their order!!

I also wanted to let you all know about a FABULOUS Cyper Monday sale going on at Hope Stamps Eternal, the ENTIRE store is on sale at a 30% discount! All stuff old and new is on sale! Hurry on over there and check it out.
