A big congrats to Shirley, the newest Featured Stamper on Splitcoast! She has lovely little gallery and I chose THIS to case. I kept the flowers theme & framing, but I used different images, different colors,  added a couple of frames & made mine a sympathy card.

After die cutting the white panel a couple of times, I sponged the pinks & aquas onto the center one, then stamped the greeting &  flower branch w/ the gray ink. A little color was added to the flowers & I used a white gel pen for the centers. The narrowest stitched frame was sponged aqua to match (since I didn’t have any card stock to match) & I added a gray mat inside. The dogwoods were stamped w/ gray, lightly colored w/ Copics & fussy cut to add on top of the frame. 

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


Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a great weekend!

Today’s Clean & Simple Challenge (CAS429) on Splitcoast asks us to “get techy” & show/use some kind of technology. I’m sure a whole lot of technology went into the space program.
In fact, growing up The Jetsons was one my fave cartoons & I couldn’t wait to grow up & have Rosie be my robot maid or have a flying space car or dinner from an electronic dumbwaiter in the wall. Hmmm…I’m still waiting!  But I do have George Jetson’s boy Elroy & his dog Astro on my card. The image was stamped, colored & fussy cut to add to a bg I made ages ago & near as I can remember, it was sponged w/ the distress inks then stenciled w/ white pigment ink. I stamped the image again on this bg in order to have the stars, which I colored in & added Wink of Stella. The cut out circle was added back w/ the greeting on top. 

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

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.

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