A big congrats to Lesley aka Lionsmane, the Featured Stamper on Splitcoast (FS321)! What a fab gallery she has! There were many I wanted to case, and I finally chose her Pink Cat Baby Card. I kept the general layout but moved things a bit, the soft colors and embossed background. I used different images, different embossing folder and added some punched and colored flowers.
The images are from DRS Designs. I stamped the lovely umbrella twice, added some soft shading w/ Copic markers and cut both out. I used a stylus to add some shape and dimension to the top umbrella and attached it on the base umbrella w/ a little foam tape underneath the center. The narrow little ribbon bow was also colored w/ Copics before attaching.
The background was embossed and I punched a bunch of different sized hydrangea petals out, added a little shading and tiny black dots in the centers, then used the stylus to curl the petals a bit. The sentiment was die cut along w/ the pale pink backing oval to finish my 4.25 x 5.50 card.
Congrats again, Lesley, enjoy your week!

A big congrats to Jennifer, the Featured Stamper on Splitcoast (FS320)! Her gallery is full of inspiration and I picked her Celebrate the 4th to case. I kept the layout and pinwheel (love making those!), but I used different images, slightly different colors and used another image in place of 2 of the buttons.
The images are all from DRS Designs. I white embossed the polka dot background on the kraft card stock and stamped the teacher tools on another piece. I colored them w/ a combination of Prismacolor pencils and Copic markers before cutting them out. The pinwheel (tutorial here) was made w/ a 2.25 square of the brilliant blue c/s and I added the piercing above and below just like Jennifer’s card. I think piercing looks great and I don’t know why I usually forget to do it. The finished card is 5.50 x 4.25.
Congrats again, Jennifer, enjoy your week! Thanks so much for stopping by!

I made this for friend who suffered a devastating loss. Sympathy cards are always hard, so I used this week’s sketch on Splitcoast (SC428) to help me out.
The images are from DRS Designs. I stamped the Flower Cross, colored it w/ Copics and die cut w/ a Spellbinders long rectangle. It was a little too long, so I shortened it a bit using a variation of my Nestie Resizing Technique. The tan marbled piece was die cut and embossed. For the darker goldish/brown, I embossed it w/ a frame folder. The sentiment was white embossed on more of the same dp and die cut w/ a fishtail banner die. The next smaller size banner was cut out of the tan marbled paper and attached on top. I added a few Candi buttons to finish my 4.25 x 5.50 card.
Thanks so much for looking!
