Starry Bday cu 08772
Happy Easter!

And a  big congrats to Jenn, the newest Featured Stamper (FS477) on Splitcoast! She has such a wonderful, colorful gallery & I chose THIS card to case. I really liked the color combo so I kept that (though mine ended up more purple than violet, lol), but I changed the snowflakes into stars & made my own background since I couldn’t find the dp she used.

To make my background, I sponged the violet ink from the bottom up & the pistachio ink from the top down onto a piece of white card stock.  Water drops from a water brush were splattered across the panel to make pale circles. Then I used a dot stencil and a white marker to add whiter dots & I also used a dry marker I touched to the surface of the 2 ink pads to make darker small dots. For the bigger dots I used a pencil eraser touched to the ink pads & also a white pigment ink pad. I also used the tiny star image stamped here & there w/ the violet & pistachio inks.

The finished bg was die cut twice & I turned the larger, outer layer around & put it back around the main panel. Then I added all the die cut & sponged star frames. The greeting was stamped w/ the Versafine purple ink, die cut & the edges sponged. 

Here’s a look at the inside. I used the panel I cut the star frames from, sponged it as I did the front.  Starry Bday inside 08778
Congrats again, Jenn! Thanks so much for stopping by!

Butterflies for You cu 07083
Today we are taking another look at the Our Daily Bread designs August release! Don’t you just LOVE the Boho patterns & fabulous dies? So fun! This is also for today’s Free for All Challenge (F4A287), to use an odd number of stamps…I used 7….the greeting, little flower, 2 butterflies on top & 3 more (different) butterflies on the background.
Butterflies for You 07079 So in the spirit of fun, my card uses a water color & stenciled background in bright red/orange. I stamped the different butterflies with Versafine randomly over the background then die cut it with the largest die of the Boho Background die. The inner part of the die was used to die cut the black lattice on top. The greeting was stamped on one of the stitched ovals & I stamped one of the little flowers all around & added just a touch of color. The big Boho butterfly was stamped on another section of the water color bg, die cut & I used a white gel pen to add some white dots for a little brightness.

Here’s the inside where I used a cut off strip of the front & some more butterflies.

Shower Stencil glue 06336

card with hot glue stencil

Shower stencil 06337
Today’s Ways to Use It Challenge(WT538) asks us to use sequins. I’m also using one the Technique Challenges (TLC533) from a few weeks back which had us making a stencil using a hot glue gun.

I first made the stencil on a hot glue mat, peeled it up (when cool) and placed it on my card stock. Then I sponged on the colors from a rainbow pad and spritzed it a bit using some thinned down white acrylic paint in a fine mister. I think I actually liked the stencil better than the result, lol. It looked a little undefined so I used a Micron pen to sort of outline the petals. Here’s what the stencil looks like.

I die cut the layers, stamped the greeting, added a fussy cut umbrella and attached the sequins (upside down, just for a change).

Thanks so much for stopping by! If you haven’t, please check out the DRS Thursday Challenge– this week..Splatters (image, spritzing, paint, whatever!) DRS images are not required & a nice prize is up for grabs!
