Simple Special Stunning - July '09

The purpose of "Simple Special Stunning" is to show how each issue of SheetLoad can be adapted for papercrafters of all levels. Whether it is sticking exactly to the sketch, or adding some extra bling.

Today's cards were created by Jessica George and feature the sketch from our July '09 issue of SheetLoad of Cards and the April Showers digital stamp from Squigglefly.

• There are more layers, with the matting, on this card.
• Umbrella is cut out and pop-dotted to add a 3-D effect.
• Prima flowers are layered to coordinate with all colors featured.

• A Clear Card Blank from ShortCuts was used.
• The image was cut out and mounted on coordinating white cardstock, so Rain Dots could be used in place of the drops on the digital image.
• Patterned paper layer is hand-cut and the sentiment is stamped onto a tag.
• The umbrella is popped up and the Primas are layered as in the "Special Card" above.

Wowza, Jessica! Great samples for each category. You definitely brought your "A" game when you brought the card to absolutely "Stunning"! The patterned papers, techniques and embellies you used were perfectly executed!

All of these are such beautiful cards, but I have to add one thing here. One of the beauties of digital images is that parts of it can be easily removed before printing. The rain drops on the last card could have been erased prior to printing, which would make cutting the image out something that didn't have to be done.

Great job, Jessica. That is one of my favorite images and I love what you did with it.
