It’s my turn to host the Featured Stamper Challenge (FS576) on Splitcoast, so a big congrats to Susy! After browsing her lovely gallery, I kept coming back to THIS card. I love the white on kraft & layout so I kept those, but I used different images, added a couple more layers & made mine a birthday card.

After stamping & white embossing then I added some pale colors w/ Prismacolor pencils. I added a fussy cut tab w/ the greeting on it & a fussy cut dragonfly on the ribbon. I used a white gel pen to add some dots because I forgot I wanted to add some white splatter before I put the card together 🙂

Here’s a look at the inside.

Supplies:

Stamps: Innovative Stamp Creations – Oriental Nature Elements
Paper:  Staples 110# white, kraft
Ink:   Colorbox frost white pigment (fluid chalk ink used on inside)
Accessories:  Prismacolor pencils,   Lil’ Inker stitched rectangles, Spellbinders A2 matting basics A & B dies, white embossing powder, polka dot tulle ribbon

And also, I have a card I made for the Inspiration Challenge (IC637) because I forgot to post it yesterday.


I was inspired by THIS iris, Be Original. Somewhere along the line, the colors went a little sideways & I think I created a totally different hybrid iris!

After coloring, I did a little out of the box when I die cut it. I was looking thru some old backgrounds I made eons ago & came across part of one made w/ Marvy metallic markers & the colors seemed right.

Here are the Copics I used.

Supplies:

Stamps: Anita’s – Iris,  The Stamps of Life – Back to Basics
Paper:  Staples 110# white, X-Press It white, purple, glossy white
Ink:   Memento tuxedo black, Stazon black
Accessories:  Copic markers Spellbinders A2 matting basics B & circles  dies, Cuttlebug embossing folder (Matelesse), Marvy metallic markers

Thanks so much for stopping by!

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 May#1 Blog Hop for Serendipity Stamps!

To make my Butterfly Wish card, I stamped the Butterfly Dream image repeatedly across a white panel then heat embossed it w/ white powder. The distress inks were then sponged across mainly the left side & I let them fade to white on the right. Some random water dots were sprinkled on top, then I took a water brush and lifted the color from the little leaves & added just a touch of green. It was die cut first w/ the largest matting basic die then I used one several sizes smaller to cut out the inside & I inserted a white layer between them.

The first part of the greeting was also done using emboss resist & the Wish die cut was double stacked. The Daisy Garden border die was cut out of white then I separated the diamond part from the flowers and attached one under the top layer & the other on top. I found some wide pink tulle polka dot ribbon & fussed w/ it a bit until I arrived at how it looks now. 
Here’s a look at the inside.
