Bday Doily 04438
On my first card, I stamped the lovely doily image from Doily Blessings using a combo of the olive & pine inks then added color with Copics. I used the large doily outline die to cut it & added a peach “button” in the center using the smallest die of the set. The backing layers were cut w/ square die then embossed w/ fancy square die. The peach square layer was also stamped w/ the flower image from the Ornate Borders & Flowers images using the rose ink. It’s not really discernible, but adds a nice color variation to the layer. I stamped the flower again on white and stamped the greeting on top using the pine ink before die cutting w/ the matching flower die.

The finished card is 4.25 x 5.50 and these are the Copics I used.

For my second card, I die cut the beautiful doily out of some handmade ivory paper I’ve had for a long time. I die cut the center out of the ivory and again out of the dp and added the little flower centers of the navy dp into the ivory version. The dp was cut first with a matting basics die then w/ a curved border die and added on top of more of the handmade ivory paper. The bottom portion that was cut off was turned over (it’s double sided paper) and attached on the bottom. The greeting was stamped in the open section ( I had to mask off part as it wouldn’t fit). The knitting basket & yarn images were stamped, lightly colored w/ Copics and die cut w/ the matching dies.

Holiday Inchies 04161
A big Congrats to Kathy, the Newest Featured Stamper (FS395) on Splitcoast! Such a wonderful gallery and it was hard to choose, but I went with THIS card to case. I kept most of the layout w/ the little houses & the Christmas theme, but I used stamps instead of dp and made mine into little layered inchies.

After stamping, coloring and die cutting the little houses & trees into inchies, I attached them on slightly larger squares, then onto my card front and added some stickles on the snow areas. The greeting is actually a combination of two stamps that I put together. The little star is from another image and I added a crystal in the center. The finished card is 4.25 x 5.50 and these are the Copics I used.

Witch Shoes 04379
A couple of fun challenges on Splitcoast today! This is for the MIX Challenge (MIX83) & QFTD Challenge (QFTD225). For the MIX, when I’m creating cards, I usually go for COLOR..I love it vibrant, no matter what hue. This particular card, since it’s Halloween uses the warm fire spectrum. And for the new Queen for the Day (& new hostess), I was inspired by THIS card of Jenn’s w/ the cute little witch.

Love this fashion forward witch legs image and the greeting is perfect! I stamped her lovely legs, colored with Copics then added the die cut greeting and a fussy cut witch hat on top. Just a little stickles was added to the stripes on her legs and the hat band. I added a black leftover negative from a die cut border underneath the panel.

For the background, I sponged on yellow & orange ink then stamped the stars at the top. I used a white marker to color in the stars then added stickles on top. The finished card is 4.25 x 5.50 and these are the Copics I used.

Boo04489 I used the fun Kitty & Jack image along with the new Boo die for my Halloween card. This image is a lot of fun to color! I also stamped, colored and fussy cut just the kitty & jack part to pop up on top of the base image. The base image was die cut w/ a large circle and I trimmed of the bottom just below the rock wall & added a larger die cut circle behind it. Boo was die cut out of a dot embossed textured black & stacked on top of 2 more die cut Boo’s for a little depth. The large distressed orange dp was stamped with the new Wood Background image using the rusty hinge ink. I punched one black bat fence and another out of a black Halloween text print..the solid black fence has some yellow highlights added to the top.

The yellow leafy dp on the left was a leftover strip from something else and I used a curved border die on the right edge & added some black faux stitch lines. On the inside, I added some leftover dp and punched bat fence to frame the fun Fraidycat greeting.

Dream BIg 03334
Today’s Ways to Use It Challenge (WT494) is Chalkboard..either make one, use one or use a chalkboard technique. I chose the latter. A chalkboard seems perfect for a graduation card. I white embossed the the greeting, mortarboard & long tassel on a die cut piece of black c/s then lightly sponged on a bit of the white ink to create the chalkboard look. The Grad letters were die cut out of black & white and spliced together. The white bg was embossed w/ a wood grain folder.
