Featured Stamper at SCS-Ali Manning

Ali Manning is a Technique Junkie and a co-owner of the Gingersnaps Challenge Blog. Today she is the Featured Stamper at SCS. I was inspired by about everything in her gallery, but when I saw this card- I knew immediately that would be my inspiration for the day!

I made this card for my daughter- a celebration of sorts- she was named one of 6 semi-finalists for the National Merit Scholar- which is quite the honor for her.  She works really hard at her studies, and we are really proud of her! Congrats Stephi- You Rock!

I had this set by My Favorite Things on my desk to make a card for Stephi, and when I saw the paper piecing (which I have only done once or twice in the past)……I was sold!  I used up some SU DSP that I had been hoarding.  I colored the image with Copics and added glitz with the Copic Spica Pens. The sentiment is popped up on pop-dots and brads hold the label punch layer.

Challenges for this card:
Card Positioning Systems- Sketch
Crafty Ho’s-National Children’s Day
Gingerloft-Glitter or bling
Cowgirl Sunday-Anything Goes
Sweet Stampin-Punches
One Stop Craft-Congrats theme
Stamp Something-Celebrations
365 # 215-3 P’s; Polka Dots, Paper Piecing, Pop up dots
