She is our Guest star Stamper this month for her use of Beautiful Blooms.  You can see Melanie’s fabulous card HERE, and I know once you see it you’ll just have to replicate it!  I just had to give her a special little shout our here amongst the Honorable Mentions.  She submitted over FIFTY projects to this month’s contest.  Yes, you read that right, 50!  And they were all of the highest caliber.  I decided to share some here with you that were some of my favorites!  This girl is definitely going places!

Melanie_bold_bright_birthdayHere is one she created with a mixture of bright colors, a variety of blooms all on a clean white backdrop.  Gotta love the simplicity of one layer cards!

Melanie_butterflies For this entry she created butterflies from the leaves contained in our Beautiful Blooms set.  If you were just to look at Melanie’s creation you would think that the leaf images were SUPPOSED to be butterfly wings!

Melanie_bandaid Here she used the Avery label stamp from Spooky Sweets to create a Band-aid!  What an adorable get well card!

Melanie_birthday_candlesAnd here she turned the same stamp into birthday candles, and used the leaf images from Beautiful Blooms for the flames!  Genius!

Melanie_christmas_giftThe same Avery label stamp once again, only paired with the flourish image (also from Spooky Sweets) to make a beautiful Christmas gift.  Seriously!  What an impressive idea!

Melanie_pumpkin_bloom And last but not least (and I think this may be one of my favorites) is her card titled "Pumpkin Bloom".  She used the pumpkin from Spooky Sweets, upside down to create a flower.  This is a perfect example of thinking outside the box!  Thanks for all your fantastic entries, Melanie. (All 50 of them!)

    Melanie is my neighbor, I know nothing about stamping, but her cards overwhelm me, she is so extremely talented. There is no end, it seems, to her imagination and the versatility in her designs is astonishing. I want her design everything for me….Christmas cards, treats, I wish I could afford to be her sole benefactress! I hope to get to see more of her work featured online!!!

    I was working on a gift bag for Halloween and my Boo came out weak in color so I reinked and then stamped again but was off by just a tad …Wow it gave a shadow effect that was so cool! It’s such fun to discover a new cool effect…Love D
