It’s my turn to host the Featured Stamper (FS525) challenge on Splitcoast. I chose Karen, aka redbugdriver, so a big Congrats to Karen! After much browsing, I picked this & this to case…combining elements of both for my card. I kept the cute little girl & layout from the first & the big heart & color from the second. But I used different images & different die cuts. 


 This cute little ballerina kind of reminds me of when my mom put me in ballet class. Except my tutu for the recital was green & orange…and the glittery fabric was itchy as all get out. My regular practice tights & leotard were pink like this little cutie; but we didn’t wear tutus for practice, thank goodness. Apparently I was a bit hyper. Mom also made me take tap, jazz &  acrobatics. Pretty much a full boat of dance classes.

My little pink ballerina was colored & fussy cut. On the front of the white panel, I die cut a big fancy heart then stamped the greeting off to the left & the feet of the ballerina on the right then attached my cutie on top. 

Here’s a look at the inside. I put together 2 greetings for this. Below it are the Copics I used.

To make my clean & simple St. Patrick’s Day card, I die cut all the pieces and parts out of a water color background I had in my stash. It was a largish leftover from something else, made w/ yellows & greens Brushos crystals. The colors were perfect for a St. Patrick’s Day card & the little bird was die cut out of an area where the greens faded into white. I liked the way it made him look more like a real bird w/ varied coloring. (The shamrock in his hat is part of the Little Critters die set.) The Lucky die was cut once out of the w/c bg & once out of a lime green I used underneath for a bit of a shadow. For the embossed edges, I used a scallop ribbons folder then cut away only one part to use as the edges on either side. The shamrock balloons were added w/ some Baker’s twine strings.

Here’s a look at the inside.

I really like the colors in today’s Color Challenge (CC622) on Splitcoast…watermelon, navy & mint. And while at first, they brought to mind flowers or summer, I thought they would also be terrific for a winter card. The dessert option was to use designer paper. Well…I made my designer paper; by stamping the winter words on the mint first using white pigment ink, then stamping them again, slightly offset in the pistachio ink. On the watermelon strip, I stamped them first w/ the coral ink, then in w/white ink.
The mittens were die cut 4 times: once in white, and again in the watermelon, mint & navy colors then paper pieced together. The white snowflake centerpiece was added w/ just one word of the greeting in navy on a leftover circle of white linen c/s. 


Here’s a look at the inside, w/ the entire greeting.
