For the CAS Challenge (CAS517), the theme is to use the letters COLD. So for my card, I have:

C = Copic coloring
O = owl
L= Love
D= die cutting

This card was pretty easy. I had already colored & die cut Epstein the owl the other day & didn’t use him, so today is his day! The Love word was also already done, but not used yet. I added a white layer behind it to help it stand out from the rose strip behind it. Only the first half of the greeting was used & I used my Misti to help place it & rearrange part of it.

Here’s a look at the inside (blank for now) & the Copic I used for Epstein.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

It’s my turn to host the Splitcoast Featured Stamper Challenge (FS624) so a big congrats to Marge! She has an absolute fabulous gallery & for my first card I chose THIS card of Marge’s. I liked the circle w/ the heart  inside & coffee theme, so I kept those. But I used different images & dies & a different layout.

After coloring & die cutting this cute owl, I die cut the royal & turquoise pieces. On the big banner, I had to use my die resizing technique to make it longer. The hearts were also die cut & added along w/ the greeting.

Here’s the inside & the Copics I used.

My second card was inspired by THIS card of Marge’s. I liked the different scenes inside the circles so I kept that. But I have way more circles & different images & colors.

After die cutting the stitched circle bg, I colored & die cut the little images & more circles out of a couple of black & white pieces of dp. I added a larger red-violet layer & let it show thru on a lot of circles. It originally was a deep rosy pink so I sponged on some picked raspberry Distress ink to darken the color.

Here’s the inside & Copics I used.

Such a wonderful assortment of birdhouses on the Etsy board Stacy chose for this week’s Inspiration Challenge (IC685). After much browsing, I chose THIS. I really liked the text/writing on the bird house & the cute little yellow birds. 

After stamping, coloring & die cutting the birds, I set about constructing a birdhouse. Originally I made one that I wrote all over, but it just didn’t look right. Then I made one that I stamped a text all over, but it looked too busy. So I made a white one, added a little embossing & attached it over the text one so that just the edges showed. I added a die cut ground & grass (from left over acrylic paint bg) & put the greeting on a “sun” shape. I know the birdhouse is a little close to the ground, but I ran out of real estate on the card front, lol. 

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