This is also for the Featured Stamper challenge (FS594). I chose THIS  card of Shannon’s to case.  I kept the layout but her sleigh turned into my camper, her Christmas tree became my palm tree & I made a summer card instead of a Christmas card.

I think this looks like a real summer vacation, doesn’t it? I don’t know that I’d park that cute camper so close to the water, but it had to fit on my card, lol. Since the images are rather large, this is all on one layer. I added a narrow burlap printed layer behind it but everything else was stamped, masked, colored & sponged on the one piece of card stock. I used a circle mask for the sun then sponged it, the sky & the water in. Everything else was colored w/ Copics. With the camper colors & beach front, I’m thinking this is in Florida.

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


Please be sure to comment on all the blogs..it is much appreciated & also increases your chances of winning!

I combined 2 Splitcoast Challenges, the Clean & Simple (CAS486) & Technique Challenge (TLC695). The TLC was to cover card stock w/ washi tape, then emboss it. The CAS was to make a celebration card.

It may not look like a celebration card, but it is…while I was making this, my aunt called to tell me my uncle had passed away. My aunt & uncle are twins so I’m sending this to her. So I guess my card is more a celebration of his life than a sympathy card. He hadn’t been sick, in fact he played a LOT of golf & did a LOT of bowling, but life is like that, I guess.

Anyway, I didn’t have as much washi tape as I thought but I found a couple w/ black patterns, some pink & pale green & some black glitter so that’s what I used. It was embossed w/ Swiss dots then framed w/ a pale mint green & the greeting added.

Here’s the inside. My aunt will get the quote…we can cry that he’s gone or rejoice that he lived.

It’s my turn to host the Splitcoast Featured Stamper Challenge (FS593) so a big Congrats to Jeri, the new Featured Stamper! She has such a cute, colorful gallery & after much browsing, I chose THIS to case. I kept the layout & cars w/ arrows, but I used different images, made my car out of die cuts & used fewer layers.

I really liked Jeri’s card w/ all the arrows & cute little cars. I had an arrow bg image but no cute little cars (must remedy that!). So I made my little red bug out of circle die cuts. After playing around w/ sizes & arrangements of the circles, I finally came to this & cut out the window part to add the blue behind it. More circles for the wheels. All the arrows were colored in for the bg then the greeting added and little puffs of smoke were drawn to finish it.

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