Since the challenge is to NOT color the image, I thought I’d sneak in under the radar by coloring the faux stitched circles on the narrow panel underneath.  I saw a card Jennifer Dove made where she drew the faux stitched circles & I thought how fun it would be to try it. So I used a circle maker to draw all the circles & added the stitch lines, then I colored them in. My circles need a bit more practice but all in all, it was fun. Except for the part where I used the long banner I already had (out of other card stock) instead of cutting it again out of X-Press It. I tested the red Copics on it (which are notorious for bleeding out of the lines) & they were fine. I didn’t test the turquoise. It spread like crazy! So I redid those on the other paper, hand cut them & glued them on top. What a pain! At least the rest of the card was easy…just some die cuts.

Here’s the inside made with the rest of my test cases (except the turquoise…I did those on the X-Press It) which were also fussy cut. Below it are the Copics I used for my faux stitched circles.

My birthday card came together really quick.  I knew I wanted to use this fun new Little Critters dies & Meow Mix set. So I’m looking thru my paper stash & find I have these blue polka dot frames left over from something else. I thought they’d look really cute w/ an embossed, yellow glitter bg. After die cutting the yellow glitter paper, I embossed it w/ a numbers folder then added my polka dot frames & a couple of smaller layers in the center.

The kitties were die cut a bunch of times out of the 3 papers. On the white kitties, I positioned the first part of the greeting & stamped it on each kitty. The rest of the greeting was stamped on a left over die cut arrow. I added some little balloons and a few threads of blue embroidery thread wrapped around one kitty tail.

Here’s a look at the inside using some left overs.

Purrfect Easter cu05727
Weekly-Favorite
A big Congrats to Kathy, the newest Featured Stamper on Splitcoast! She has such a fun, cute gallery & I chose THIS to case. I kept the Easter theme and most of the colors, but I used different images, put my image inside the circle instead of next to it & used an embossing folder instead of designer paper.

Since I don’t really have any cute little kid images, I used this sassy kitty image & paired her with a pair of fun bunny ears. After coloring, I fussy cut the kitty & ears and put her in a circular window opening w/ some textured blue paper behind her. The greeting is a combo of a couple of different ones & I used a stamp positioner to split it up in order to fit the panel. The larger white panel was embossed w/ a lattice like folder & a larger pink panel was added before attaching to the card front.

Here are the Copics I used.
