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 April 23 to leave comments on the blogs for a chance to win. Mary will announce a winner on April 24 on her Blog.  Each month a different image is 50% off. This month- it’s the Dogwood  Branch! On the first & third Wednesdays of every month., we’ll be celebrating with a Blog Hop!

To make my card, I put the white panel into my Misti & lined up where I wanted the greeting. I stamped it 3 or 4 times, (using a piece of scotch tape to cover the last 2 lines), in order to get good coverage. Then I lined up the one straight up & down Daisy & stamped & colored it. After masking it, I stamped the other two. I had to do a little out of the box on the flowers when I die cut it. The large bg paper was die cut & since it was one of those paper pads that had a coordinating strip down the side (usually you tear these off) but I liked it so I kept it. I die cut the yellow strip using part of the Daisy Garden die to put over the seam.  A few sequins & a little stickles in the flower centers were added to finish.

I also made this for the Featured Stamper Challenge (FS533) on Splitcoast. I chose THIS card of Kelly’s to case..keeping most of the colors & layout. But I used different images, different papers & turned mine vertical.

Here’s a look at the inside w/ the other two lines of the Sisters greeting. Love this greeting & I think my sis will, too! Below it are the Copics I used for the daisies.


Please be sure to comment on all the DT Blogs..it will be so appreciated & also increase your chances of winning!

The challenges on Monday at Splitcoast are TLC631 (no line coloring) & CAS422 (winged things).  Hmm….I’m thinking maybe I should have just picked a floral to do the no line coloring. I’ve done it on ornaments & candy canes & it turned out fine, but this little missy was hard to do. Mainly because she’s so little & it’s hard to no line her & keep facial details.

Anyway, I no lined her by using desert sand ink, colored her, then masked her & stamped the butterfly w/ lt blue & colored it. Without having this in my Misti, it would have been impossible. Since the ink is the same color as the Copics I was using, I had to stamp her several times while coloring just to find the edges again. I was so impressed by Nancy Williams card Here & the floor she drew that I added a drawn floor. The curtains were dry embossed, cut out & added on top.

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

I really like the colors in today’s Color Challenge (CC622) on Splitcoast…watermelon, navy & mint. And while at first, they brought to mind flowers or summer, I thought they would also be terrific for a winter card. The dessert option was to use designer paper. Well…I made my designer paper; by stamping the winter words on the mint first using white pigment ink, then stamping them again, slightly offset in the pistachio ink. On the watermelon strip, I stamped them first w/ the coral ink, then in w/white ink.
The mittens were die cut 4 times: once in white, and again in the watermelon, mint & navy colors then paper pieced together. The white snowflake centerpiece was added w/ just one word of the greeting in navy on a leftover circle of white linen c/s. 


Here’s a look at the inside, w/ the entire greeting.
