The World Famous Beate!!!

Hi everyone!! Happy Sunday!!! Here is my card for today's Featured Stamper Challenge on SCS, FS111, The World Famous BEATE!!! WOO HOOO!!

First of all, I cannot even BELIEVE that Beate has not been the FS!! That is CRAZY!! She is the ABSOLUTE most talented stamper out there (in my humble opinion), and she is my personal enabler! I can honestly list, right now off the top of my head, all of the stamps, embellies and supplies I have purchased the past few years all because I saw Beate use them!! My Mom, who is not a stamper, knows who Beate is because I always talk about how awesome she is!! She is UBER talented!!! So, if you can't tell, I am VERY excited that Beate is today's Featured Stamper!!

Onto the card :) How can you choose a card from Beate's gallery to case? Seriously...there is NO way anything that I make is going to come close to hers, but of course I HAD to play along!!

I cased Beate's Black Silhouette Card, which is just one of her amazing cards currently sitting in my Favorite's gallery! I kept her AWESOME layout and design (why even try to mess with perfection), and here is what I changed:

1. Used different Stamps
2. Used different colors and dsp
3. Changed the embossing folder
4. Omitted the brad and flower on the focal image

For my card, I used the smalled flower in Fifth Avenue Floral, and I stamped it in Basic Black onto Whisper White Cardstock. I then cut and layered it with my Circle Nestabilities. I chose a color combo I would not have normally used, as that is one of the things I love most about Beate's cards...she has SUCH a talent for putting colors together! On mine I used Kiwi Kiss DSP from Urban Oasis, and Tangerine Tango cardstock. I embossed the Whisper White panel with the Manhattan Flower Textured Impressions, and each of the panels were sponged in either Kiwi Kiss or Tangerine Tango. The sentiment is from Trendy Trees and I punched it with my Large Oval Punch and layered it with my new Scallop Oval Punch.

Beate is a girl after my own heart with paper piercing, so I pierced all around my card, under the sentiment and around the circle focal image too. I used the same ribbon from Jersey Ribbon Originals. I don't have the flower punch she used (Oh! The horror!), so I pulled out a Pumpkin Pie flower from the Accents & Elements Flower Fusion Felt Flowers, and sponged it with some Tangerine Tango ink so it would match my card. I fastened it with a Vintage Brad.

Thanks SO much for stopping by!! I will be back in a bit with pics from Stamp New England!!
