Good 2/21 thru 2/25. On the first & third Wednesdays of every month, we’ll be celebrating with a Blog Hop! The Special this month is the Judy’s Lg. Easter Basket stamp – 50% off!

I used the lovely  Zinnia image for my card today. After stamping & coloring, I fussy cut the 3 flowers & leaves.  The black strip was die cut & the flowers arranged around & over it. I only used part of the original greeting…the You part was just too large to fit in the space. So to make the you die, I used part of the Rejoice die  & trimmed away the rest. 

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

Next stop is Vickie’s Blog!  Please be sure to comment on all the DT Blogs..it will be so appreciated & also increase your chances of winning!

When I saw the technique challenge on Splitcoast (TLC676) was a fancy fold, the first thing I thought was “it’s gonna be trouble”. I was right. But at least I had resigned myself to that fact going in. And it was really only trouble for a few reasons…

1. I also decided I HAD to give the Gilded Faux Silk another try (first time was horrible). It made the sliding top really stiff & hard to fold.
2. My measurements were a little different so I had to reverse engineer it. Sheesh! Will I never learn?
3. I keep getting sucked into the bottomless pit of hubby’s plumbing reconfigurations. Not only has he acquired every plumbing tool known to man, he also constantly borrows MY crafting tools. Apparently, my tools are better than his tools, lol. And I have to help him reengineer the problem. (He’s NOT a plumber..he’s not even particularly mechanically inclined, lol.)

So..the gilded faux silk turned out better this time, probably because I needed snowflakes & blue & that looks good together. The fold finally cooperated. But then a fourth problem..silver & fancy folds are very HARD to photograph. It is what it is & here it is.

And here’s a look at the inside. I went simple since the front was an engineering feat!

A big Congrats to Kandie, the newest Featured Stamper (FS534) on Splitcoast! She has a wonderful little gallery & I chose THIS to case. I kept the tree & birds & most of the layout, but I used different images, different colors & made my a thank you/sympathy card.

I masked off the die cut blue/grey panel & stamped the Woodgrain Bg across the top 2/3 w/ the weathered wood ink & added just a little gray in between areas. The greeting was stamped below in the majestic blue ink then I added the die cut tree & birds & a dividing strip w/ a little Candi dot.

Here’s a look at the inside.
