A big congrats to Annette, the newest Featured Stamper (FS403) on Splitcoast! She has such a fun, fab gallery and I chose THIS card to case. I really liked the starry background w/ the greeting stamped all around it & the cute little images at the bottom so I kept those. I used different images, different colors and made mine a Halloween card since I needed one more.
On a black square, I white embossed the starry bg image then die cut a white frame to go on top. The two greetings were stamped around the frame and the little Count Porkula & two jack o’ lanterns were colored & fussy cut. I also added a cut out moon w/ bat and a punched bat fence on top of the starry bg. The finished card is 4.25 x 5.50 and these are the Copics I used.

Welcome to the North Coast Creations October Release! We have some super cute Thanksgiving & Christmas sets for you this month.
On my first card, I’m using the adorable Tommy Turkey. This little guy just makes me smile I know turkeys aren’t usually this colorful but I wanted him all decked out in his Thanksgiving finery. We have a flock of wild turkeys that come through our back yard pretty regularly and I can assure you they are nowhere near as cute & colorful as this little guy. After coloring, I did a little out of the box on the tips of his feathers and sponged a little color around the inside while he was still in the die. I added a rusty brown frame and a few layers behind him. The stamped, die cut leaves and greeting are from Our Daily Bread designs. The finished card is 5.50 x 4.25 and these are the Copics I used.

My second card uses the really cute Snowman Family set. Don’t they look like they’re having a great time? After stamping & coloring, I added a little Copic opaque white paint for snow on the tree and ground and also for the clouds.
After adding a white die cut frame on top, I white embossed some snowflakes on a piece of blue paper from the ODBD Christian Faith paper collection then attached it underneath my image. The greeting was stamped on a small oval and a stamped, die cut blue snowflake was attached on top. The finished card is 5.50 x 4.25 and these are the Copics I used.

Today we are taking another look at the Our Daily Bread designs October Release! Don’t you love all the wonderful new images and fabulous dies? So many terrific uses for these! For my card, I used the wonderful God’s Timing set along with the Matting Circles dies and beautiful Blooming Garden collection paper. The clock image was stamped directly onto the paper and die cut with the coordinating Matting Circles dies. Since the greeting was stamped onto textured card stock, I black embossed it to make sure it would show up. Some buttons were also die cut out of the yellow & garden paper along w/ a few of the “sun rays” from the die set. I had a strip of the garden paper left after trimming it, so I used a larger circle die to cut a semi circle around the clock and added it on top of the yellow.

She has such fun, colorful gallery and since she also does a lot of quilting, I chose THIS card of hers to case. I kept the colors & diamond shape, but used different images, a different layout and used a sewing theme for mine.
I had some little die cut, embossed squares that just happened to fit this quilting square image, so I stamped it inside all three and colored them w/ Copics. The greeting was die cut w/ a pennant banner and I added a button and a big thread bow.

Today’s Ways to Use It Challenge (WT501) asks us to use denim…paper or real. I searched around and found one lonely piece of denim paper.I wasn’t crazy about the color..it looked a little too gray, so I sponged a little of the denim ink around the edges that show.
The chickadee was stamped w/ the denim & I added just a hint of color then die cut him. The outside circle of the Wisemen Ornament was stamped w/ the London fog ink and die cut then attached to a scallop die cut red circle. The chickadee print paper has the greeting stamped directly on it w/ the fired brick ink and the red layer was die cut w/ the scallop border and attached on top.
I die cut several sizes of the poinsettia out of white, sponged denim & the reverse side of the chickadee print then assembled them together. I’m really loving these poinsettia dies…I have the Spellbinders, too, but these are smaller so they fit perfectly in confined areas. The finished card is 5.50 x 4.25 and these are the Copics I used.
