Congrats to Lois (clownmom), the Featured Stamper today at SCS! Wow, does she ever have a big, beautiful gallery! I chose her Triple Cupcake Birthday to case. I changed the images, the colors and added a sentiment circle instead of stamping on the front. I kept most of the layout and the fun birthday theme for a child.
I stamped the cloud bg (Sonlight) onto white c/s w/ cobalt ink & did a once off first to make it a little lighter. Added the train track then attached it to a red layer, then a blue layer and onto the white 6.5 x 5 (A7) card.
The train sections & train station (no name, bought at Big Lots a long time ago) were stamped onto white, painted w/ a water brush and Peerless water colors. I used a square Spellbinders nestie set to cut them and their layers.
The sentiment circle (JR) was stamped w/ the cobalt ink and the dots painted w/ the water colors. I used a circle nestie and a Quickutz scallop circle for the red layer. After the pieces were attached, I added the puffs of steam.
Thanks so much for stopping by!

Great Technique Lover’s Challenge today at SCS! I love the bandana technique and it’s been a while since I’ve done it. Bandanas usually make me think of cowboys so I went w/ the traditional red.
On white c/s, I masked off the areas around where my cowboy silhouette stamp (Magenta) would be and sponged on the colors, starting w/ the lightest first. Then I used the stamp-a-ma-jig to position my silhouette and stamped it w/ black ink. It’s attached to a white piece w/ the lower border punched.
My bandana bg was first stamped w/ a paisley square (Stampendous) and the cardinal ink. Then the paisley border and little flowers (Fiskar’s) and the small paisley (SU) were stamped w/ black ink. Dots were added w/ a white gel pen.

Congrats, Liz on being today’s Featured Stamper at SCS. I’ve been a fan of Liz’ for a while. It was hard to pick just one, but I finally decided on Cup of Friendship to case. I changed the colors and images, left off the sentiment (until I decide which one I want) and added another punched border and aa few strips of color. I kept the layout and wonderful side punched strips.
My SW pot (Stamps on Fire)was stamped a couple of times onto vanilla and the band part was stamped once onto some bg I had left over from yesterday’s challenge. I used markers to color the pot of one and the chili peppers on the other. I cut the pepper part out and layered onto the pot. I paper pieced some of the band onto the lower part of the pot. Then I cut the whole thing out. A slit was cut around the lip of the pot and I inserted these slivers of c/s I cut. I attached it to a bg I stamped a lg burlap bg (Stamp Camp) that I inked w/ the DI ant. linen and just hit it here and there w/ DI tea dye and sponged the edges w/ the tea dye.
I used this same burlap on the wine card front using the redwood ink. I punched the edges of the leftover bg (using the SU images) and a green strip. I used the smaller McGill punch on a strip of the bg. I attached the MS border punched strips on the left side and the other on the right. What may look like more red & green layers is actually just strips I attached. I added a few small punched daisies on the left green strip.
