This is our card for the Featured Stamper Challenge on SCS. Anne had so many cards to choose from, I picked out 4 of them. Brandon (my youngest) then chose which one he wanted to help with. Here is the one that he picked. I think there is something wrong with SCS right now, so I don't know whether this link will work.

We changed a few things, but the Gist of the card is the same.
  • we substituted the stamp for the Abundant Hope Stamp
  • we put the sentiment with the ribbon
  • we used white ribbon instead of purple
  • we did different score lines
  • we use a different edge punch
  • we made it a layered card

I punched out a 1-1/4" square on a post-it note. We attached it to the card and Brandon sponged the squares with celery. I stamped the flower with Basic Black. Then Brandon very carefully colored the flower with Almost Amethyst, Certainly Celery, and Blush Blossom (for the centers) markers. I highlighted the lines in the flowers with Lavender Lace and the petals with Old Olive, and then colored over it again with almost amethyst and certainly celery. We scored each long side from the back at 1/8" and 3/8", then the front at 1/4". Brandon lightly sponged the score line, 'cuz he thought that you wouldn't be able to see them. We punched the sentiment with the modern label punch and the side with the Scallop Trim punch. I tied the white taffeta ribbon. I think it looks up-side-down in the picture, but it's not. We stamped -off the flower in amethyst on the inside and the sentiment in Black.

Very nicely done! I have missed the Little Shapes stamps since they retired them, but using the punch & post it note is a fabulous idea! Tell Brandon that you both did a fabulous job!
