Featured Stamper Challenge and Home-Made Primas

I was wanting to make a card using some of these blue homemade Prima's that I made with some crinkled blue papers.

To make this crinkles blue paper, you simple take cardstock, spray it with water, crumple it a few times, then iron it out. Once it dries, you have some great paper that makes some great homemade Primas. Of course, now that I am looking for the link, I can't find it. I'll edit it in when I do find it. Edited - I looked and looked and looked and finally found the tutorial on how to make Primas - It is by Valita at her BLOG.

So, yesterday morning, I saw that the Featured Stamper 66 was LovestoStamp6. As I was looking through Jennifer's gallery, I found this card HERE and new that I could use my flowers. To meet the challenge I changed the colors from Pink, black, and white...to Blue, black, and white and used different stamps, smaller scallops, and embossed the image instead of using the rub-ons as Jennifer did.

I love the finished result. I think I will go back to Jennifer's gallery and look for some other great cards to use as inspiration!


Supplies: Cardstock: Whisper White, Basic Black,Cool Carribean (Stampin' Up!), turquoise (unknown); Ink-Basic Black, Versamark (Stampin' Up!), Stamps-Mixed Messages (Papertrey Ink), Vivaldi Flourish (Momory Box); Other - scallop scissors (Provo Craft), Flower punch (EK Success), white embossing powder (Stamp-n Stuff), dry embossing tool and pad (Stampin' Up!), rhinstones (unknown).

Thanks for dropping in.

Fabulous card! Love the homemade prima idea. I've got to use my three bottles of them first, but then I'm just going to make my own. I've got some really cool specialty papers your card reminded me of to make those. Thanks!
