Guest Stamper: Carrie

Stampin up Life is Beautiful

I WISH I had created this card.  My mouth dropped open in awe when I first saw it.  However, the credit goes to Carrie Fitch, one of my talented Stampin' Pretty Pals, and today's Guest Stamper.  Click Creative Cards By Carrie to see more of her gorgeous artwork.

Carried used Stampin' Up!'s New Manhattan Flower Impressions Die (similar to a Cuttlebug Embossing Folder) with Whisper White card stock.  Beautiful texture!  TIP:  What really took this card from pretty to breathtaking is how she used a Blender Pen with Baja Breeze and Kiwi Kiss Ink to color the recessed areas of the flowers.
