The Clean & Simple Challenge on Splitcoast (CAS477), was to use Poppies in honor of Anzac Remembrance Day. It’s a day in Australia & New Zealand similar to our Memorial or Armistice Days. 

I love poppies & my card is made up of a lot of leftovers so it went pretty fast. The poppies were die cut out of leftover watercolor bg, the Smile & brick bg were die cut out of leftover strips. I think the only new piece was the white linen bg. I used a semi-circle die (Blueprints 21) to cut out the frame around the poppy & added a few stamped & die cut sequin images.

Here’s a look at the inside.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

A big congrats to Denise, the newest Featured Stamper (FS579) on Splitcoast! She has a lovely little gallery & I chose THIS to case. I love the vibrant blue so I kept I kept that & most of the layout. I used different images, turned it horizontal & moved the greeting,
This is also for the Ways to Use It Challenge (WT678), to use bleach. I actually love using bleach on card stock…w/ all the different brands & colors, you never know exactly what you’ll get. For this, I stamped this southwest pot image w/ bleach onto the cobalt blue c/s. I was pleasantly surprised to see it turned a lovely turquoise color when bleached. The strip on the side was simply sprayed w/ bleach. After fussy cutting the pot, I used a lg bg die to emboss the turquoise panels then added a double stitched circle frame & some sequins & strips of paper for grasses. 

Here’s a look at the inside.

Just for grins, I sprayed a bunch of different colors of c/s  to see what bleach would do. Here are my results. (Click any pic to enlarge. If there’s a solid piece next to it, that was the original color.)

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.
