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.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Today’s Free For All Challenge (F4A329) is teal & red. My teal is slightly on the turq side (I’m down to scraps of true teal..need to get some!) & my red is slightly on the vermillion side because it went better w/ the shade of teal.

Since it’s getting close to the end of the school year & a lot of people like to make cards for those special teachers. This also continues the DRS Challenge from yesterday to use a die cut. My original intent was to use the Owl & the Open Bible & then I thought, what goes w/ books? Reading glasses! Around here, anyway, because I have terrible eyesight. Then I pulled out the Teacher Tools & saw that the stump the owl was sitting on, matched up just about perfectly w/ the pencil cup in other image. If I had done it before hand, I would have masked the apple, but since the owl was already done, I just masked him & did an extra apple to add on top. The book was stamped twice & I used a Micron pen to scribble the “writing” & popped up the extra image to give it some dimension.

The teal bg was embossed w/ an apple folder & the Thanks word was die cut once out of the vermillion & once out of white & double stacked a little offset. The glasses were die cut & I put some thin plastic behind them to simulate the lenses.
Here’s a look at the inside & below it are the Copic colors I used.

A big congrats to Jenny, the newest Featured Stamper (FS472) on Splitcoast! She has a wonderful garden of a gallery, with lots of flowery creations. I chose THIS to case. I kept the flowers, butterfly & doily, but moved the greeting & put it on the front panel & used different images & slightly different colors.
For my flowery card, I put the lily image in my Misti, stamped it w/ Memento, colored w/ Copics, then over stamped w/ Versafine. I repeated this for another lily then die cut both w/ the new matching Lily die. I didn’t have the exact peachy color I wanted for one of the layers, so I sponged it w/ a combo of the Distress inks then spritzed w/ my self made acrylic white paint & water spray (about 3 to 1, water to paint mix) to soften it a little. When it dried, I die cut the the 2 layers & the stitched ring behind the lilies. I added a butterfly & a partial doily die cut to finish.

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