A big congrats to DJ Rants, the newest Featured Stamper (FS528) on Splitcoast! We were on the ODBD team together for quite a while & I’ve been an admirer of her fab gallery for a long time. After much browsing, I chose THIS to case. I kept the birthday theme & most of the layout, but I used different images, different paper & left off the top frame.
To make my birthday card, I die cut 3 white panels then sponged each of them from the top left inward, letting it fade to white in the lower right. I stamped & die cut the big Happy on the largest layer so the section wouldn’t be missed when the other layers were added on top. The little birthday was stamped on the lower right of the top panel. I also die cut 2 more big Happy dies out of white to shadow the stamped version. 

Here’s a look at the inside.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

A big congrats to Twila, the newest Featured Stamper (FS519) on Splitcoast! I didn’t have to go far to find THIS beauty to case. I kept the layout & flowers, but I used different images, different colors & made mine a birthday card. Bday Corsage IMG0578
All the flowers & leaves were placed into my Misti, stamped w/ the Paris Dusk ink, lightly colored w/ Copics, overstamped w/ the denim ink then die cut. I like the color of the denim ink better than the Memento, but from experience, the Adirondack inks don’t play well w/ the Copics, so I save it to stamp on top after the coloring. The greeting was stamped using the Versafine to ensure it would be dark & the letters totally filled in. The paper strips were all leftovers I trimmed to fit inside the white panel

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