This is a fairly quick card for today’s Free for All Challenge (F4A426) & yesterday’s Ways to Use It Challenge (WT684) on Splitcoast. The first challenge has us fussy cutting & the second has us including bugs.

To make my card, I stamped the brick wall w/ gray ink then colored it w/ gray Copics.  The sky was sponged w/ a self made cloud stencil. I decided it was easier to just stamp Mr. Frog on a separate piece, color him & fussy cut him than try to mask out the wall & the original log the frog sits on.  I made a slit along the top of the wall to insert him & make it look like he was leaning on it. The little grass sprigs & ladybug were also fussy cut & added. The greeting was added on a thought/speech bubble along w/ some dragonflies

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

My card today is on the very CAS side of things. Don’t let that fool you..I’m sure it takes longer for me to do CAS than to do a “normal” card. For the most part, I have trouble w/ CAS. The images are really cute but I need more practice w/ these type of images. The hearts were stamped on the linen bg & I thought it needed more so I outlined them w/ a glue pen & sprinkled on some glitter. For the Love word, I sponged Distress inks from left to right then stamped & glittered it. I found a piece of patterned paper just the right size & colors so I used it to back the white & to die cut the swirly.

Here’s a look at the inside.

It’s my turn to host the Splitcoast Featured Stamper Challenge (FS584), so a big congrats to Susy, the newest Featured Stamper! She has such a lovely gallery & there are many I wanted to pick..for my card I chose THIS to case. I kept the cute camera & Bokeh bg, but I used different images & dies & added a little snapshot to mine.

To make my variation of the Bokeh background, I used a stencil I made quite a while back by die cutting different sizes of circles in a piece of copy paper. I sponged  the Distress inks thru the various sizes of circle masks, then I added a few sponged circles on top using white Brilliance ink. For the smallest circles, I used a pencil eraser. The little snapshot was made by die cutting a rounded square out of a rectangle die cut. I stamped part of the Palm Tree line on the back of a piece of vellum w/ Stazon & attached it to the back side of the frame.

Here’s a look at the inside.
