A big congrats to DJ Rants, the newest Featured Stamper (FS528) on Splitcoast! We were on the ODBD team together for quite a while & I’ve been an admirer of her fab gallery for a long time. After much browsing, I chose THIS to case. I kept the birthday theme & most of the layout, but I used different images, different paper & left off the top frame.
To make my birthday card, I die cut 3 white panels then sponged each of them from the top left inward, letting it fade to white in the lower right. I stamped & die cut the big Happy on the largest layer so the section wouldn’t be missed when the other layers were added on top. The little birthday was stamped on the lower right of the top panel. I also die cut 2 more big Happy dies out of white to shadow the stamped version. 

Here’s a look at the inside.

Well,  today’s sketch (SC636) had me stumped for a bit. Until I had the idea to use the 4 way Chevron die & cut a piece of white for that diagonal part #3 of the sketch. The row of flowers is my part #4. I did flip the sketch because it fit my images better.

The tired lady (yep, she looks a lot like I feel by the end of most days) was stamped onto an already die cut little rectangle & I used some of the cut out parts of the Chevron die & colored them lime, as border elements. 

Here’s a look at the inside, using more of this cut out pieces, & below it are the Copics I used.

…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!
