It’s my turn to host the Splitcoaststampers Featured Stamper Challenge (FS580) so a big congrats to Carlene! Carlene not only has a beautiful gallery, she also volunteers her time to notify people each week in the favorites thread & also leaves the warmest, sweetest comments for everyone. It’s truly my pleasure to feature her this week.

After much browsing, I chose THIS to case. I love the sun ray embossing so I kept that, but I used different colors, different die cut bg & made mine an Easter card.

For my Easter card, I first die cut & embossed the sunburst bg. For the Lily Cross Blessings circle, I stamped it w/ Versacolor indigo pigment ink then heat embossed it w/ pastel embossing powder. The embossing powder lightens the ink color &  gives it a slight metallic sheen. For the lilies,  I put the image into my Misti, stamped it w/ sky blue ink, lightly colored w/ Copics, over stamped w/ the same indigo ink & embossed w/ the same powder. Then I did quite a bit of fussy cutting on them. 

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

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Such a wonderful site Angie chose for the Inspiration Challenge. It took me a while, but I finally spied THIS fun ornament & I knew I had the perfect little flamingo image to use.

To make my card, I put the image into my Misti, stamped w/ Memento, colored w/ Copics then over stamped w/ Versafine. I added a few highlights in the water w/ a white gel pen then did a little fussy cutting on the top. I took another piece of white card stock & sponged the 3 Distress inks from dark to light from the top down & placed this behind my image. On the blue frame, I stamped the woodgrain bg w/ the sky blue ink to give it a little texture.

Here’s a look at the inside & below it are the Copics I used. The flip flops were die cut & I just drew the straps on & shaded them a bit.

This is also for the Splitcoast Inspiration Challenge (IC641). I was inspired by THIS butterfly.

For my Lilac Note, I put the lovely image in my Misti, stamped & colored w/ Copics. I used Prismacolor pencils to do a light overlay in areas then over stamped it to bring back the details. It was die cut & I had to do a little out of the box on the leaves on the left. I had a couple of left over rectangles in 2 shades of purple & I thought they looked nice behind the upper left & helped balance out the composition. I had to finagle the greeting a bit to work around the image & I added a little white gel pen around a loop of the J to help it stand out. A little wink of Stella was added…hard to see here, but shimmery in real life!

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

Please be sure to comment on all the is much appreciated & also increases your chances of winning!
