Yo Featured Stamper!

This week the featured stamper on Splitcoaststampers is Mary Jo Albright. If you are not familiar with her work---you are missing out. She is a fabulous designer and a sweetheart.

So, I had to get this challenge in! I chose to case her card which can be seen here. I used her color palette because I LOVE it. I also used the same images (Let's Go For a Walk by My Favorite Things.)

The changes I made were--I added hardware on the main image. I added piercings under the main image. I used hanging hardware instead of an eyelet on the sentiment. I added the scalloped strip underneath the main image. I used different ribbon (and substituted the vertical ribbon for a piece of embossed cardstock) and I rounded the two corners of cardstock.


Thanks Mary Jo for sharing your talent. Even though my case doesn't begin to do yours justice, I had a blast trying!

Materials used: Let's Go for a Walk (My Favorite Things); Ink-black; cardstock-turquoise, real red, pumpkin pie, whisper white, black; paper piercing tool; Copics, prismacolor pencils; odorless mineral spirits; slit punch; Cuttlebug and textile embossing folder; ribbon (May Arts); scalloped punch and circle punches (SU!); brads and hardware (WE R Memory Keepers); adhesive ribbon (Martha Stewart); corner rounder punch (Creative Memories).

Thanks for stopping by!
