A big congrats to Donna, the newest Featured Stamper on Splitcoast (FS536)! After much browsing, I chose THIS to case. I admit my case doesn’t look a lot (really anything) like her card, lol. I literally focused (tongue in cheek) on the camera & my card just kind of grew from there. After I had the camera die cut, I thought it went really well w/ the greeting, then I needed something to have a picture of…and that’s how it went.

So after I stamped & colored the flamingo scene, I added the die cut frames, the camera & split the greeting w/ the first part on the little flag & the rest on the lower frame.

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

Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a wonderful Mother’s Day!

I combined 2 Splitcoast challenges for this one: Technique (TLC595), to make a stamp selfie card; & Clean & Simple (CAS386), use sunshine.  Mack the Knife 09559
Truthfully, lately I can’t get enough of these selfie cards, lol. I named mine Mack the Knife partly because of the shark & partly because my iPod was playing “Mack the Knife” when I started this card. Must be fate!

So Mack the shark was stamped, colored, masked & the beach scene stamped behind it & also colored. I added the die cut polaroid frame & added some die cut palms, a little camera & the circle cut greeting.

Here are the Copics I used.

Today’s Clean & Simple Challenge (CAS385) on Splitcoast is Hit the Beach! I’m also borrowing an idea I used last week (polaroid frame) which happens to coincide w/ last week’s tutorial, Stamped Selfies. So…I have these cute pigs on vacay taking a selfie. 

Vacay Selfie 09508
I die cut my “polaroid” frame, then cut a larger square out of white to go behind the frame. I figured by having the square already cut, I wouldn’t have to mask the frame. The vacationing pigs were stamped & I did mask them…but here’s a little tip..I’ve used these pigs before so I already had masks for them. When I cut a mask, I usually stamp the image a few times, line them up stacked on top of each other & cut them all at once. Then I save the masks in a little baggie w/ the images, so I can pull them out & use them when needed. Saves a lot of time in the long run. After masking them, I stamped the flamingo scene behind them & colored everything. The little glasses were die cut & I colored the white lenses w/ Copics to look like sunglasses.
