I made this for today’s Sketch Challenge (SC421) and yesterday’s Color Challenge (CC411) on Splitcoast. The sketch is right up my alley…clean and orderly. And the colors are some of my all time favorite colors. A real win-win!!
This is also a sneak peek of new images coming Friday, Feb 1st from Our Daily Bread designs. My card is pretty easy to figure out…the flowers were stamped w/ the black ink, colored w/ Copics and die cut it w/ a Spellbinders rectangle die. The greeting was stamped on the 4.25 x 5.50 card front and some layers of designer paper and solid paper were added from my long panel. The pennants were also die cut and I added some baker’s twine and blue button.
Thanks so much for stopping by!

Congrats to Bonnie (bon2stamp), the Featured Stamper on Splitcoast (FS312)! What a wonderful gallery she has! I spent quite a long time strolling her gallery and finally chose her Not Just for Valentines to case. I kept the layout and use of silhouette image, but I used different images, added some color and in place of the embossed background, I opted to use a leftover strip of card stock I made using dry wall mesh and white acrylic paint. I made this ages ago for the TLC235 challenge…Painted Grid.
The images are from Our Daily Bread designs. I sponged the color on a piece of white card stock using a couple of Kaleidacolor ink pads, then stamped the Bird & Butterfly Label in one area and the Little Boy in another. I used a Spellbinders Labels 18 for the label and larger black layer and I hand cut the little boy and added him on top.
The strip of painted grid was added across the top layer of my 5.50 x 4.25 card, then a black layer before attaching to the card front.
Thanks so much for stopping by! Congrats again, Bonnie, and enjoy your week!

Happy Freezing Friday!
A lot of the US is in the deep freeze today including most of us in the deep south, It’s sleeting right now and everything is all cold and crunchy outside. So when I checked out the Splitcoast Free For All Challenge (F4A153), it’s all about warm & fuzzy. A bunch of pink pigs are warm and somewhat fuzzy but a big old pink heart Valentine is a lot warm and fuzzy.
The images are from DRS Designs. I stamped Leonard and the greeting and die cut, leaving the oval die in place and sponged a little ink inside the frame before attaching it to a pink scallop oval. I had a big die cut heart left over from another Valentine so I stamped the rose on one side and inked the edges. On the background, I stamped the large OX XO with the angel pink ink and then added Leonard Pig’s Bathtime Buddies using the rosebud ink. The finished card is 5.50 x 4.25.
This is also for the DRS Thursday Challenge….PIGS! DRS images are not required to enter or win so head on over and link up your little piggy creation!
