Mary will announce a winner on March 20 on her Blog.  Each month a different image is 50% off. This month- it’s the Marble Feathers Bg! On the first & third Wednesdays of every month., we’ll be celebrating with a Blog Hop!

Isn’t this new Chick w/ Butterfly adorable? After coloring it, I die cut w/ a pierced oval. The greeting was stamped on a piece of the leftover white & after die cutting w/ a pierced square, I trimmed it down a bit. To stamp the greeting, I lined it up in my Misti & stamped it w/ black. Then I shifted the white piece slightly up & left & stamped it again w/ lulu lavender to give it the shading.

Two extra daisies were fussy cut & I made a little sheer bow to go on the side. The grape background was die cut w/ the new Swirl Cuts Bg die. It cuts all the swirls but leaves them intact. A really nice effect!

Here’s a look at the inside. I had a piece of lighter lavender w/ the lg egg shape already cut out, so I thought it would be perfect for the inside. The Flower Corner was stamped in grape & I used a white gel pen to add a few highlights. Below this are the Copics I used.

Please be sure to comment on all the DT Blogs..it will be so appreciated & also increase your chances of winning!

…went to a Party! In fact, all 5 little piggies went to the party! Today’s Clean & Simple (CAS420) Challenge asks up to use some string or an image w/ a string. Every little piggy has a balloon w/ a string, so there you go.

My easy card is pretty self explanatory 🙂 Party Hat Pig was die cut w/ an oval & all his little piggy friends were stamped, masking as I went & their balloons are from a little balloon punch. The balloons were punched out of white & I colored them & drew the little strings w/ a fine black pen. I will mention a little trick I use when I need more than one mask of an image. Stamp the image several (or more) times onto your thin paper. Hold them up to the light to line them up, then cut them out all at once. When they’re stacked like this, you only have to cut one to have multiple masks. I also save them in a baggy for future use.

Here are the Copics I used. Whoda thunk it took so many?

Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a great day!

A big Congrats to Linda, the newest Featured Stamper (FS527) on Splitcoast! After strolling thru her sweet gallery, I chose THIS to case. I kept the CAS design & sponging, but used different colors, different images & made mine a Christmas card. 
I had the white piece already die cut so I used some Distress inks to sponge in some pink/reds from the upper left & some lime greens from the lower right. The pine bough was stamped a couple of times w/ a combo of the green Memento inks and the greeting was stamped w/ black. I added a narrow pine green layer & instead of using another white layer to use the embossing folder on, I embossed the front of the card. The trick w/ this is, because I only wanted the front embossed, I had to put the card front in upside down in the folder, so it needed to be a pattern that looked good going either direction. Anything else would just look upside down 🙂

I added a die cut paper bow to finish. Here’s a look at the inside. The embossed card front also gives a nice look to the top of the inside.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
