Guest Stamper - Terry Krushel

Some cards need to have some Internet exposure and this is one of them.  Terry Krushel, a fellow Stampin' Up! demonstrator, and sort of "adopted side-line", gave this card to me as a thank-you for lending her some DSP and I was so impressed with her work that I asked her if I could feature it on a Guest Stamper spot on my blog. Here's her beautiful Valentine card:

  • The thing that impresses me the most is Terry's attention to detail.  Look at the cute sentiment from the Just Sayin' stamp set.  It's heat embossed with gold and I love that she took the time to sponge the center with Blushing Bride ink!  I like that she sponged the edges of the die cut heart with the Encore Gold ink as well.  It defines it so well.
  • Don't you love the little burlap heart, and the fact that it is backed with the Baked Brown Sugar Ruffle Stretch Trim?  So cute!
  • I really like the combination of the Burlap Ribbon and Crochet Trim.  Great texture!

  • Another detail to notice is that Terry slightly unraveled the edge of the burlap trim, which just adds an extra bit of interest to the overall design.
  • The stamp set she used for the garland is Banner Blast, each flag embossed in gold Stampin' Emboss Powder and popped up on Dimensionals on the Gold Baker's Twine.
Terry is a Stamper to Watch in the future, and would like to start her own blog when her work schedule allows.  In the meantime, leave her some love here and comment on her gorgeous card!
