Wise Owl TY cu 08878
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.

Thank you Leaf 08345
My first card shows off the gorgeous new Thank You die as well as a host of favorites including the Asters, Posies, and Butterfly. After using the largest Flourished Star Pattern die for striped layer, I used the Double Stitched Rectangles to cut it again as well as for the peachy layer. For the center element, I used some ivory along w/ the other 2 papers to cut 3 sizes of squares then rounded 2 opposite corners of each before stacking them. On the 2 top ivory rounded squares, I ran them thru the embossing cycle using a piece of cross stitch canvas to add a little texture.
Thank You Leaf cu 08344
Two sizes of Asters & 1 small Posy were die cut and stacked to add on top of the center. I used just the lacy part of the Fancy Fritillary die to add beside the flower. I stamped part of one of the greetings from the With Much Thanks set on a piece of ivory then die cut using the large leaf from the Pretty Posies set. The Thank You die was cut twice & stacked for a little dimension.

Here’s a look at the inside.

Pastel Easter Basket cu08287
My second card features a pretty pastel Easter basket. The basket from last year’s Basket of Blessings now has a matching die! So if you snagged one last spring, you’re in luck! If not, you can still get it along w/ the die. To make mine, I put the basket image in my Misti, stamped it w/ Memento onto some of the pastel flower paper from the Easter Card Collection (I used the same piece of printed paper for the die cut bow), then added some shading using the Copics. After, I stamped over it w/ the Versafine to really make the details pop, then I die cut it. All the lacy & plain Easter eggs were die cut using the Easter Egg dies & different pieces from the Pastel Paper pack.

I used one of plaids & a minty green piece for the large background layers, frame & Happy Easter  die cut. I added some flowers, the grass & bow & my Easter card was all finished! 

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