It’s my turn to host the Splitcoaststampers Featured Stamper Challenge (FS508) so a big congrats to Jeanne, aka Penny627! She has such a wonderful gallery & after much browsing, I chose THIS to case. I didn’t have a cute little Halloween girl, but I had a cute little Christmas girl. So I kept the basic layout & circle element, but I used different images, different colors & since there isn’t a die for this cutie, I did a complicated out of the box/into the window for her.

Sigh…I’m not gonna lie..it took me quite a while to color this lovely, then it took me longer to figure out how I was going to handle her, since she’s a bit bigger than I thought when I ordered her. To make the circle opening, after a lot of consideration, I traced around the smallest Grand circle die & used a craft knife to cut away the area around her that fell inside the circle. I used the same circle along w/ the largest of the regular circle dies to cut the silver glitter layer & put it behind her. The card started out to be 5.5″ square, but I just felt uneasy w/ it, so I cut it down to fit A2 & added just a touch of snowflake embossing on the lower corners & strips of the silver glitter on either side. It changed the look a bit, but I like the partial circle a lot better. I added a die cut Joy out of the silver glitter above the Happy Holidays that is part of the red designer paper I used to back the image.

Here’s a look at the inside & below it are the many Copics I used.

Congrats to Heather, the Featured Stamper on Splitcoast (FS374)! What a wonderful gallery! After much browsing, I finally chose her Triple Snowflakes to case. I kept the lovely layout and small squares, but changed the colors, the images and added a couple of layers.

The background layer was sponged with several colors from the Kaleidacolor ink pad, the I used a random dot image (Anita’s) on top in the same colors. The flower image (Judikins) was stamped on the left side and I sponged around the edges. The sentiment (Our Daily Bread designs) was added in the lower right corner.

The little bird squares (Mike’s $/Studio 112/K&Co) were stamped on top of a separate piece which was also sponged. They were die cut w/ Spellbinders square dies as were the black squares behind them. I used a 1/2 inch circle punch to punch out a piece of an extra stamped square and a 5/8 inch circle punch for the black circle and attached them in the upper right corner and put a clear epoxy half round on top. The finished card is 5.50 x 4.25.

Thanks so much for looking!

It’s time again for our Divine Divas Inspiration Challenge! This week, Lori chose some beautiful plates from Acacia.

 

(I’m also combining this w/ SCS Sketch Challenge.)

I love birds and I knew I had just the right chickadees image from Sparkle N Sprinkle. I stamped them with the chocolate ink and colored them with Prismacolor pencils. I used the Out of the Box Nestie technique (tutorial HERE) to cut them out, but I used a nesting rectangle set from Quickutz. Masking the birds, I sponged on a little of the Neptune ink.

After matting on a chocolate brown layer, I tried something a little different on the white layer. Recently, I tried embossing card stock using a piece of plastic canvas. I liked it so I tried it with a piece of finer mesh vinyl (sold for cross stitch bookmarks). First I lightly misted a piece of white card stock, placed it on the Spellbinders tan embossing mat, placed the vinyl mesh on top and ran it through my Sizzix. I love how it turned out! It looks and feels just like artist canvas. I left the small piece white but on another, I brayered over it with the Neptune ink, stamped my feathers background (Anita’s/Sugarloaf) w/ the chocolate ink and colored them in w/ markers.

The green bg was done w/ the forest branches Cuttlebug folder. I added some punched out circles as faux brads.

Thanks so much for looking and please visit the rest of the Divine Diva Team. We would really love for y’all to play along in our challenge. Lori is offering some terrific blog candy for this challenge.
