Blooming Bday cu 08102
A big congrats to Pat, the newest Featured Stamper (FS464) on Splitcoast! She has such a beautiful gallery & I chose THIS to case. I kept the technique of the brayered embossing folder & layout, but I used different colors, a different embossing folder & different flower dies.
Blooming Bday 08103
To make my card, I brayered the inside of the embossing folder w/ the fresh greens ink pad then embossed the large white panel. Then I die cut it w/ the largest Flourished Star Pattern die to get the tiny pierced edges. The Asters, Posies & Leaves were all die cut out of white & I sponged a little yellow & orange ink (from the melon melody ink pad) in the centers. The butterflies were stamped w/ the same yellow/orange ink & die cut.

The greeting was stamped & die cut w/ a Mini Tag then all the flowers were assembled & attached. I added a bunch of die cut circles (from the Asters dies) to the centers of the embossed rings for a little extra punch. 

Here’s a look at the inside.

Autumn Leaves 07411
My card today is almost entirely bits of leftovers from other projects or backgrounds I didn’t use. The largest background is done on the backside of a piece of glossy card stock & has some kind of a coating on it..sort of semi glossy. The detail Leaf Pops were stamped w/ resist ink then brayered over using a rainbow ink pad. The white strip down the left side was stamped w/ the Fall Pops set using the same ink. The serpentine like glitter strip was a leftover & was made w/ a hot glue gun & glitter was sprinkled on while still hot. The large Solid Leaf Pop was stamped & die cut w/ the matching die. I added some little copper glitter acorns & squiggly pieces from the Oak Leaf die. I die cut an oval in the background & added the greeting underneath. It was first stamped w/ the resist ink, brayered then over stamped (slightly offset) w/ Versafine.

Here’s the inside using more leftovers. I used the oval cut out of the front to stamp the greeting.

NCC One Scoop 06839
This is for Dina’s Dare to Get Dirty Challenge! The details are HERE, but you’ll need to be a Fan Club member…it’s easy, just click to find out how.
For my first tasty treats card, I stamped the dish of ice cream first with Memento, colored it with Copics, then stamped over it with Versafine. It really brings out the details this way! After die cutting, I layered it on a larger label that was brayered with a rainbow ink pad. I used the same ink pad to brayer the large background then stamped the diagonal rows with the silhouette image from the What’s the Scoop set.  I used a banner die to cut the greeting & the outer die of the Flourished Star Pattern set to cut the outermost layer. Stickles was added for some sparkle.
Here’s a look at the inside using pieces leftover from the card front & also the Copics I used to color the image.

My second tasty treat, started much as my first…stamped, colored & stamped over with Versafine, then I fussy cut it.
NCC Ice Cream Shoppe 06861
The greeting sign was also colored & fussy cut before both were added to the die cut label and then to a larger peachy orange label. I stamped the pennant swag to match the paper I used & die cut with the matching pennant die. I also used one of the greetings to stamp in tone on tone colors on top of the designer paper background. Again, I added stickles for sparkle.
