Archive for the ‘Girly/Feminine/Mother’s Day’ Category



A big congrats to Vicky, the newest Featured Stamper (FS546) on Splitcoaststampers!  After much browsing, I chose THIS card to case. I kept the girly theme & layout, but I used different images, changed the top section a little & used an embossing folder instead of designer paper.

I think this little Cowgirl   is just adorable!  After stamping & color her, I added the greeting beside her & colored it, too. Then I used just the sparkle element from the greeting I used on the inside & stamped it w/ lt pink & lt blue. I added the paisley embossed topper & I rubbed a white Prismacolor pencil over the high points to bring them out a bit. A little stickles  was added for the bling.

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

When I think of sunflowers, I seem to gravitate toward a blue & yellow color palette. And it went that way here when I came across this blue & white striped paper then found the printed flower paper went so well w/ it. The Sunflower die  was die cut a couple of times..once out of the flower pattern paper & once out of the blue stripe then layered as seen. I added a white scallop circle & yellow stitched circle behind it to add a little more weight. The papers were all die cut & layered & I added a yellow Dragonfly to the side of the sunflower. The two words were combined to make the greeting. 

Here’s a look at the inside using some leftover pieces.

Welcome to the June #2 Blog Hop for Serendipity Stamps!

If you arrived here from Miriam’s blog, you’re in the right place..if not, you may want to head over there first.

The Prize – One $20 gift code will go to one random commenter from the blogs. So be sure  to visit all the blogs because you don’t know which one the winner will be drawn from. You have through Sunday June 25 to leave comments on the blogs for a chance to win. Mary will announce a winner on June 26 on her Blog.  Each month a different image is 50% off. This month- it’s the Provence Window! On the first & third Wednesdays of every month., we’ll be celebrating with a Blog Hop!

For my floral birthday card, I first stamped two of the largest  Summer Flower Pops, colored then die cut then w/ the matching die. On one, I trimmed it closer & removed all the background petals & popped it up a bit on top of the full flower. One of the smaller flowers was used for the center & I used the yellow Copic to color the (originally clear) frosted resin stone for the very center.  The white panel was masked down the left side & the Flower Corner stamped a couple of times & colored.  After die cutting the larger gray gingham background & a ribbon out of the same paper, I attached these & stamped the greeting

Here’s a look at the inside. I wanted to color the Flower Corner but didn’t want the color to go thru, so I die cut a piece of 22# paper, stamped it, then attached it to the inside. Below it are the Copics I used.
