A big congrats to Jennifer, the newest Featured Stamper (FS588) on Splitcoast! She has a lovely gallery & I chose THIS to case. I kept the layout & big doily image, but I used different colors, different greeting & different embossing folder.
For my card, I stamped the big doily w/ denim ink onto khaki colored card stock then die cut it. I did the same for the border strip & used a wide piece of grosgrain ribbon behind it. Just the center part of the doily was stamped again, die cut w/ a circle die & layered w/ a larger khaki circle. The navy bg was embossed & I used a word window punch for the greeting.

Here’s a look at the inside.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

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.

The greeting (Art Impressions), Rep. of TX circle (Deadbeat Deisgns) and cowboy post (Inkadinkado) were stamped on white and color sponged on. The two were cut out w/ the postage scissors.

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.
