A big congrats to Suzy, the newest Featured Stamper (FS585) on Splitcoast! She has a wonderful gallery & since she lives in Texas & I am from Texas, I couldn’t resist picking THIS card to case. She has a lot of Tx themed cards but I liked the Tx flag on the balloon so I kept that. I used different stamps & dies & put my Tx flag on a punch out of the state outline.

This card turned out to be a little trickier than I thought it would. Mostly because the big Hot Air Balloons bg die actually has a very large balloon in the lower left that I didn’t want to be there. So I had to die cut it pretty carefully using a smaller top plate to avoid cutting it out. A tiny bit of it did start to cut so I covered it up by die cutting a small cloud in that area (just to right of her face). I also die cut a lt blue layer & lined it up a little off to shadow the white. The right balloon has a colored Tx state punch under it. The little cowgirl was done separately & fussy cut around the top & sides to go on top.

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

The Clean & Simple Challenge on Splitcoast (CAS477), was to use Poppies in honor of Anzac Remembrance Day. It’s a day in Australia & New Zealand similar to our Memorial or Armistice Days. 

I love poppies & my card is made up of a lot of leftovers so it went pretty fast. The poppies were die cut out of leftover watercolor bg, the Smile & brick bg were die cut out of leftover strips. I think the only new piece was the white linen bg. I used a semi-circle die (Blueprints 21) to cut out the frame around the poppy & added a few stamped & die cut sequin images.

Here’s a look at the inside.

For my typewriter card, I knew I wanted to watercolor this wonderful, vintage image, so I put it into my Misti & stamped it w/ Versafine onto watercolor paper. I added a water glaze on the areas I wanted to color then dropped in the different colors one at a time. The colors are a little different, but I like the way they blend into each other. When it dried, I went back & added more color in areas & added shadows. Then I over stamped it to sharpen up the details. I added a white linen frame & only used part of the greeting. 

Here’s the inside.
