A big congrats to Pam, the newest Featured Stamper (FS518) on Splitcoast! She has a wonderful gallery & after much browsing, I chose THIS to case. I kept the flower theme & general layout, but I used different images, different colors & left off the twine.
I just received these fun new Fancy Flowers kit from MFT & couldn’t wait to give it a test drive. The flowers were colored & die cut w/ the matching dies. I already had the white stitched arch so I die cut a couple of black ones to fill in & added the negative die cut of the greeting & a few crystals.

Here are the Copics I used.
Thanks so much for stopping by!

This was made for 3 Splitcoaststampers Challenges…today’s Sketch (SC613), yesterday’s Color (CC603) & Monday’s Technique (TLC606). I used all of the colors for my Thanksgiving card & did a little bandana tech on the olive green strips. For the sketch, I let the legs of the scarecrow serve as the 2nd horizontal band of the sketch, but all other elements are there.
The scarecrow was colored w/ Copics, fussy cut & added to a stitched oval that I stamped the arced greeting across the top. The scroll image was stamped on the die cut olive strips & I used the white gel pen for the bandana tech. The ombre yellow strip started out a honey color & I sponged the Distress inks on it going to red at the bottom. The sponged & fussy cut leaves & punched branches were added around the oval.

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

Today’s Color Challenge (CC592) is coral, cantaloupe & saffron..these colors seemed a little retro to me so I pulled out some spiral images that also feel a little retro to me. Sparkle IMG0428
The little strip on the left was actually a brayered leftover that just happened to have the colors I needed, so I stamped the spiral border on it.

The little spiral flower was stamped & a little matching color added & fussy cut. After die cutting the white panel, I put it in my Misti and stamped the greeting. Then I colored the SPARKLE word w/ a black Wink of Stella & stamped it again. I added some clear WOS to the spiral images & stamped die cut sequins. It’s REALLY sparkly in person! I added a narrow frame behind the main panel which I also colored to match.
