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.

It’s my turn to host the Featured Stamper Challenge on Splitcoast & I chose Lynne as the newest Featured Stamper (FS520)! Congrats, Lynne! I chose THIS card to case…keeping the birthday & big circle elements. But I used different images, different colors & different paper. 
After stamping, coloring & die cutting the images, I also used oval dies to cut a ring to go around my little green planet. I figured little green aliens needed a little green planet, lol. Originally I was going to let the paper show thru the big circle cut out of the white, but it just overtook the little green alien so I cut the circle smaller & put it back to give a little more emphasis to the alien. The little blue stars were sprinkled around & the greeting was stamped below the spaceship.

It’s my turn to host the Splitcoaststampers Featured Stamper Challenge (FS508) so a big congrats to Jeanne, aka Penny627! She has such a wonderful gallery & after much browsing, I chose THIS to case. I didn’t have a cute little Halloween girl, but I had a cute little Christmas girl. So I kept the basic layout & circle element, but I used different images, different colors & since there isn’t a die for this cutie, I did a complicated out of the box/into the window for her.

Sigh…I’m not gonna lie..it took me quite a while to color this lovely, then it took me longer to figure out how I was going to handle her, since she’s a bit bigger than I thought when I ordered her. To make the circle opening, after a lot of consideration, I traced around the smallest Grand circle die & used a craft knife to cut away the area around her that fell inside the circle. I used the same circle along w/ the largest of the regular circle dies to cut the silver glitter layer & put it behind her. The card started out to be 5.5″ square, but I just felt uneasy w/ it, so I cut it down to fit A2 & added just a touch of snowflake embossing on the lower corners & strips of the silver glitter on either side. It changed the look a bit, but I like the partial circle a lot better. I added a die cut Joy out of the silver glitter above the Happy Holidays that is part of the red designer paper I used to back the image.

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