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!

The theme for today’s Ways to Use It Challenge (WT626) is “The Eyes Have It”. We are to feature eyes or glasses in some way. So I have this quick little birthday card featuring a trio of frogs. Originally, their glasses were part of snorkel gear, but I cut that part off, leaving them w/ big glasses. 
After stamping, coloring & fussy cutting 3 of these frogs, I die cut 3 windows in a white panel & backed it w/ a pale blue panel. It looked a little too bare, so I used a splatter stamp to add the lt blue dots.  I also stamped, colored & fussy cut some balloons & party hats (both from the Party Pig image) to add along w/ the greeting to add to the bottom frog.

Here are the Copics I used.

A big Congrats to Joyce Ann, the newest Featured Stamper (FS523) on Splitcoast! She has such a big, beautiful gallery & a lot of scrapbook pages! I chose THIS to case. I kept the sort of vintage humor theme & the layout but changed most everything else. Different images, different colors & different papers. I’m also adding this to the Ways to Use It Challenge (WT622), Spunky Old Broads because this trio of beach babes certainly qualify!

I stamped, colored then overstamped the babes on an already die cut white panel. After adding narrow black & turquoise layers, I found some paper that had glasses on it so I used it down the left. The greeting was tucked underneath the image panel & some die cut glasses were colored and added in the corner. This greeting just makes me chuckle…I can just hear the other two women agreeing w/ her..”Mmmhmmm..you know it, sweetie!”

Here are the Copics I used.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
