It’s my turn to host the Featured Stamper Challenge (FS589) on Splitcoast. So a big congrats to Wanda, the newest Featured Stamper! She has a lovely gallery & I chose THIS to case. I kept the wheelbarrow full of flowers & most of the layout, but I used different images, different colors & added some little birds on a branch.

For my wheelbarrow, I wanted a softer look, so I stamped it in gray. It made it very close to a “no line” coloring & because the flowers are small, made it a little harder to color. I did the same to the little birds on the branch & fussy cut both. After I had the front linen panel layered to a soft lavender one, I lined up where I wanted the wheelbarrow & stamped just the little swirls in gray on the bg. 

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


Thanks so much for stopping by!

Happy Easter! And a big congrats to Jayne, the newest Featured Stamper (FS582) on Splitcoast! She has a lovely little gallery & I chose THIS to case. I kept the bright reddish/orange bg w/ large central image, but I used different images, different die cuts & made mine an Easter card.

For my Easter card, I made a background using distress oxide & regular distress inks by brayering the inks onto white.  On top of this, I also stamped the Brick Wall  w/ water. It’s not real noticeable, but it does add a nice textural look, especially on the darker part at the bottom. Then the Pussywillow image was stamped w/ gray ink & I added a little white Prismacolor pencil to the buds. 

Here’s a look at the inside.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a Happy Easter & a great weekend!

Such a cute site for the Splitcoast Inspiration Challenge (IC642)!After a lot of browsing, I chose THIS for my inspiration. I liked the sweet little duck & all the Easter eggs & I needed an Easter card so it was perfect.

For my Easter card today, the baby ducks were stamped, colored & die cut, and I had to do a little out of the box on the grass along the way. The large green bg started out white but I sponged Distress & Distress oxide inks onto it, splattered it & also stamped the Splatter Bg on it in blues, greens & finally white. The white splatter was heat embossed w/ white powder & I left an area at the bottom w/o too much on it so I could add the greeting. I was going for that speckled egg look on the bg. 

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