A Cut Above:
Pauline - The Pursuit of Stampin'ess
As I looked through the selection of wonderful cards created this past week, I kept being drawn to the hilarious and sweet card created by Pauline at the Pursuit of Stampin'ess. I really giggled when I first clicked on her card, such a clever use of stamps, ingenious really!! These colours are fun and bright and I feel that she captured the "mood" of them perfectly! I also loved how she used the flower brads...they look perfect on this card! Congratulations on being a Cut Above this week Pauline!
LeAnne's Choice - Teresa
Teresa's big bold flowers really made a statement! I loved that she embossed them first (something I never think to do!) and the buttons as the centers really carried the color theme through. The subtle embossing and twine, and the simple sentiment just made this card an all-around winner to me! Congratulations, Teresa!
Nance's choice - Julie DiMatteo
So many layers to love on Julie's bright and happy card! I love the way she incorporated the challenge colors with a layered blossom punch and how the center flower is different from it's neighbors. The trio of scalloped borders wrapped in baker's twine grounds the blossoms and adds fun and interest too--love it, Julie! Congratulations on being A Cut Above!
Anne Marie's Choice: Rach
I just love all of the awesome details on Rach's Kimono Kids card! She incorporated the challenge colors wonderfully in her beautiful coloring of that stamped image. There is a LOT to color on those little gals, too. Whew! I also love how she embossed the lanterns and dressed up the inside of the card, too. So pretty, in every way! Congratulations, Rach, on being a Cut Above this week!
Cindy Beach-Stamps, Paper and Ink
I just love the gingham paper on this card and how well it contrasts with the Poppy Parade stripes. Cindy did such a great job watercoloring the image and the paper pieced seat was an inspired "accident!" The unique way she tied the ribbon really brings it all together for me. Congrats Cindy!
Jaydee's Choice: Rosemary
I loved the way Rosemary made use of the colors on this fabulous card. The bottom DSP layered was tied to the top layer with color. I love the three butterflies. The distressed edges on the white card stock were perfect with the strong clean lines in the rest of the card. The multicolored flower helped to bring the Poppy Parade and So Saffron together. The scalloped border was the perfect finishing touch behind the vertical layer. Just fabulous. Congratulations, Rosemary.
Ann's Choice - Geraldine Andrade
Texture! Pearls! Buttons and butterflies! This card by Geraldine Andrade of Mafer's Creations has it all! From the perfectly balanced use of the challenge colors to the paper piercing accents, the details exude happiness. However, it is the Daffodil Delight border, jumping right off the card, that captured my attention! Congratulations, Geraldine, for being my selection for this week's Headliner!
