For the Inspiration Challenge, Stacy chose U.S. Mint Sheets. I’ve always had a thing for postage stamps & I have a good size collection of mostly used stamps. I just love the artwork on stamps! I chose a stamp that I actually have & I found it on the site, but since then, I guess they sold out & it doesn’t show up anymore but HERE it is.

My Tiffany lamp was gold embossed onto a polished stone bg I made using Copic refills, rubbing alcohol & a gold leaf marker. After embossing the lamp & the book, I fussy cut them & added them to a pine green layer w/ a long window cut out. I added a pale peach layer behind it & gold embossed the greeting. The little butterflies were punched out of some leftovers of the bg. Little strips of the green that I cut w/ postage stamp scissors were added around the green layer.

Here’s the inside:

It’s my turn to host the Splicoast Featured Stamper Challenge (FS597). A big congrats to Selma, the newest Featured Stamper! She has a fabulous gallery full of beautiful creations & after much browsing, I chose THIS to case. I kept the layout & field of daisies, but made mine smaller, left off the outer punched layer & used a different greeting.
I happened to have (& hadn’t used before) the same mini daisy dies so I die cut all the petals & leaves & added just a touch of color. I die cut some grass & used punches for the butterflies, bird & fence, Polka dot Candi dots were added to the flower centers. 

Thanks so much for stopping by!

A big congrats to Jennifer, the newest Featured Stamper (FS588) on Splitcoast! She has a lovely gallery & I chose THIS to case. I kept the layout & big doily image, but I used different colors, different greeting & different embossing folder.
For my card, I stamped the big doily w/ denim ink onto khaki colored card stock then die cut it. I did the same for the border strip & used a wide piece of grosgrain ribbon behind it. Just the center part of the doily was stamped again, die cut w/ a circle die & layered w/ a larger khaki circle. The navy bg was embossed & I used a word window punch for the greeting.

Here’s a look at the inside.
