Featured Guest Stamper – Carole’ Anne Sluchinski

Good morning everyone, and a very Happy Valentines’ Day to all of you!

Today, I’d like to share two cards which are the beautiful work of Carole’ Anne Sluchinski… my Featured Guest Stamper of the day!

swapteeamfebruary 002This card is so beautiful in person… the Shimmery White cardstock sparkles beneath the water-colored bonnet… difficult to capture in the photo.  Here’s a close up:

swapteeamfebruary 003I love how Carole’ Anne stamped the bonnet’s ribbon onto a separate sheet of Elegant Eggplant Cardstock, cut out and attached to the bonnet on the card.. an extra dimension and special touch which really makes the image pop!

I’m sure you can’t wait to see the second card from Carole’Anne… this one features the Occasions Mini Catalog stamp set “Whimsical Words” and you’re going to love it too!
