I made this using today’s Sketch Challenge on Splitcoast (SC425). The images are from DRS Designs. I stamped the wreath twice, cut one out and used a scallop die on the second. After coloring both w/ Copics, I attached the cut out version on top of the die cut one and added a larger wine red circle behind it.
The berry branch was stamped on the long panel and I used a little Out of the Box Nestie and Nestie Resizing on it. Seems like a lot for one little panel, lol. Stickles was added on all the berries for a little sparkle and I added 3 gems under the greeting to fill in some space. The gems and the ribbon were both colored w/ a pink Copic marker because I didn’t have the right color of either one. The finished card is 5.50 x 4.25.

For today’s Color Challenge on Splitcoast (CC415), the More Mustard, Old Olive and Midnight Muse seemed sort of 70’s retro to me so I thought they’d work out with retro images. Yesterday’s Technique Challenge (TLC418) was to use circles so I’m combining those two challenges here.
The images and dies are a sneak peek of some new things being released March 1st by Our Daily Bread designs. I stamped the Recipe Icons and die cut them using the circle die that comes in the set and I used the scallop circle that is also in the set after I stamped the Gingham Bg in the three colors. I’ll let you know ahead of time that the circle and scallop circle dies are not the same size as any of the current circle or scallop circle dies by Spellbinder. I have both the small and large sets of both and I checked, lol. I did use one of the regular circle dies to cut out the retro lady and to die cut the little gold rings around the images. I stamped a couple more the icons on the white bg and attached it to a mustard piece on which I stamped the gingham with mustard ink. The sentiment is a partial from the Bicycle set and I punched it out using a word window punch. The blue gingham layer behind it was done using a small corner rounder. The finished card is 4.25 x 5.50.

A big congrats to Andrea, the Featured Stamper on Splitcoast (FS316)! She has such a fabulous gallery and for this one, I chose her Lil Monster Birthday to case. I love the sentiment repetition in varied colors and clean layout so I kept those. I used different images, different colors and I moved the image and added a bow.
The images are from Our Daily Bread designs. I used 2 different Kaleidacolor ink pads to stamp the word Crocus in three rows down the front then edged it w/ a Copic marker. I stamped the crocus twice, colored w/ copics and fussy cut them. They are attached in the corner and I added a sheer fuchsia bow on top. The finished card is 4.25 x 5.50.
Congrats again, Andrea! Thanks so much for stopping by!
