It's time for another Featured Stamper challenge on SCS and this week the featured stamper is Stamps4funinCA aka Tosha, Tosha has some great cards in her gallery and I ended up using 2 of her cards for inspiration for the cards shown here.
My first card above is inspired by a Penny Black Hedgehog Card that Tosha created about 5 weeks ago, I remember then loving that card and wanting to do something similar myself. Well today was the perfect time to create my own card using her ideas. I used a different Penny Black Hedgehog, the one she used would have been too small for my centre square as I concentrated on getting the dotted border made first before worrying about what image I was going to use. I don't normally do that I would normally work from the image first but if that border didn't work there wasn't much point doing this card as it was the border that I wanted to recreate and having the Papertrey ribbon set. My other changes were changing the color from red to blue, using a different verse and I also created a photo corner for the left corner of my main image rather than use ribbons.
While I was browsing through Tosha's gallery this afternoon I also discovered this one, Vintage Rose which uses stamps from the Wild Rose set. I haven't used that set nearly enough and I did like the card so I decided to recreate that too. I changed my colors from blues to pinks, changed the verse & ribbon and also added a border to the bottom of my card.
