A big congrats to Suzy, the newest Featured Stamper (FS585) on Splitcoast! She has a wonderful gallery & since she lives in Texas & I am from Texas, I couldn’t resist picking THIS card to case. She has a lot of Tx themed cards but I liked the Tx flag on the balloon so I kept that. I used different stamps & dies & put my Tx flag on a punch out of the state outline.

This card turned out to be a little trickier than I thought it would. Mostly because the big Hot Air Balloons bg die actually has a very large balloon in the lower left that I didn’t want to be there. So I had to die cut it pretty carefully using a smaller top plate to avoid cutting it out. A tiny bit of it did start to cut so I covered it up by die cutting a small cloud in that area (just to right of her face). I also die cut a lt blue layer & lined it up a little off to shadow the white. The right balloon has a colored Tx state punch under it. The little cowgirl was done separately & fussy cut around the top & sides to go on top.

Here’s a look at the inside & below it are the Copics I used.

Such a wonderful site Angie chose for the Inspiration Challenge. It took me a while, but I finally spied THIS fun ornament & I knew I had the perfect little flamingo image to use.


To make my card, I put the image into my Misti, stamped w/ Memento, colored w/ Copics then over stamped w/ Versafine. I added a few highlights in the water w/ a white gel pen then did a little fussy cutting on the top. I took another piece of white card stock & sponged the 3 Distress inks from dark to light from the top down & placed this behind my image. On the blue frame, I stamped the woodgrain bg w/ the sky blue ink to give it a little texture.

Here’s a look at the inside & below it are the Copics I used. The flip flops were die cut & I just drew the straps on & shaded them a bit.

I made this for the monthly Christmas Challenge for Fan Club members at Splitcoast & if you’re a Fan Club member, you can check out all the details HERE.


For my Christmas card, I couldn’t wait to color this wonderful image. Since I was in the middle of moving, I didn’t have a chance to make as many Christmas cards as I wanted so this challenge is perfect. After I colored Santa, I used the smallest of the Grand Labels 1 die to cut a frame out of the blue layer. I thought it needed something, so I die cut a decorative labels 1 out of black & used the largest of the Labels 1 to cut out the middle of it & make a double frame for Santa.

Here’s a look at the inside & below it are the Copics I used.
