Pals Guest Stamper: Kristen C.

All those circles plus all that amazing embossed texture equals a stunning card!  Kristen Nicole Cunningham, a member of my Stampin’ Pretty Pals, has formulated a masterpiece.  I love the monochromatic mix of Stampin’ Up! Very Vanilla, More Mustard, Daffodil Delight and So Saffron.  Pretty Pearls Basic Jewels and satin ribbon (not Stampin’ Up!) add a chic accent without overpowering the pattern.

  1. Kristen’s website revealed the secret behind that gorgeous ribbon…yes it IS SU’s whisper White Organza Ribbon but she used a sponge dauber & Very Vanilla ink to complete the look! Way to Kristin, this card is amazing!!!

  2. All I can say is Wow! Wow! Amazing work!

  3. On her blog, Kristen says it’s SU ribbon which she used a sponge dauber with Very Vanilla ink to color the ribbon. Her creation is gorgeous.

  4. omigosh, what an awesome card; thanx for the inspiration! I have that ribbon from SU in white and would LOVE to have some vanilla!

  5. I absolutely love this! Thank you pretty pals, you are so creative

  6. This is just lovely, great job Kristen. Absolutely love the monochromatic colors used. When the card is closed, I can envision seeing the very vanilla in between the circles on the bottom row, which ties the top and bottom colors together. Very nice!

  7. So so pretty! I clicked on over to her blog and she says it is SU! ribbon just so you know. I know about dying it but since our only Vanilla ink is pigment I wonder how she did it!

  8. Just gorgeous! How red carpet is that? Belongs on a movie star!!

    Wow, lovely card. Lots of work but totally worth it for the beautiful layers. Well done!

  10. What creativity and so many circles -it is beautiful.

  11. Hi Bobbi: A little technical issue. It’s linked on Kristen’s blog and available when you click now. Thanks for letting me know 🙂 Hugs, M

  12. One more thing regarding the Whisper White Organza Ribbon, don’t forget you can use a Sponge Dauber and make it the ribbon a different color! I had forgot that I’ve done that after seeing someone else do it in a learning video. My ribbon turned out very nice! Just wanted to share that tidbit!

  13. Kristen’s card definitely has a “WOW” factor!! The ribbon may not be SU’s but it looks like the Whisper White Organza Ribbon but in Very Vanilla. Humm? I wish SU would do this particular ribbon in more colors for us! But one never knows! Kudo’s to Kristen for a VERY different CHIC card! 🙂

  14. What an awesomely creative card! Love the colors.

  15. What a nice card! I clicked on the link to see more about this card, but nothing appears to be on her blog about this one. In fact, I only see 3 cards on her blog. Maybe I’ll check back later. Nice work! TFS!

  16. Wow…. very good job…. perfect


  17. WOW! what an awesome idea! A great way to show off all the lovely embossing folders that SU has to offer! Love it! Thanks. x

  18. Kristen’s card packs a real WOW FACTOR in my book. Nicely done and can only image how happy it would make anyone who might receive it. Many thanks for sharing with us.

  19. Kristen’s card just jumped out at me..a must make of this masterpiece.Oh it has so much going for it,can you imagine the lilacs, the blues, the reds,etc.etc.Ruth.

  20. Holy Wowzer! I envy the person who gets this card. I’d have to frame it! Love to see anything Kristen does. Thanks so much!
