Today's Featured Stamper is Nichole aka Butterflyears. Wow she has a wonderful gallery, so many beautiful cards to choose from. Here is the card that I chose to CASE: BE_FS84_First card for gift set for Cammie.

I have wanted to try and create one of these poofy flowers. I figured this was the perfect time to use one. You punch 6-10 scallop circles out of Designer paper or Card stock -- I used Bella Bleu DP. Crinkle each scalloped circle into a tight wad. Unfold each circle. Stack all the scalloped circles together, one on top of another. Pierce a hole in the center of the stack and attach a brad. Start crumpling again, make sure the center ones are the tightest. Then fluff until you are satisfied with the look of your flower. This is my first one, it's OK -- but I think I need to practice a little more.

I placed my flower on top of a bow that I made with Chocolate Chip Satin ribbon. This card was DIFFICULT to photograph, so I don't know whether you can see the chocolate layer. I stamped the En Francais BG stamp on the chocolate chip layer with chocolate chip ink. Then I stamped the Bella Toile BG stamp over that with VersaMark ink. I embossed this with copper embossing powder. It looks really pretty.

Thanks for stopping by, have a wonderful Sunday!!
