It’s my turn to host the Splitcoast Featured Stamper Challenge (FS584), so a big congrats to Susy, the newest Featured Stamper! She has such a lovely gallery & there are many I wanted to pick..for my card I chose THIS to case. I kept the cute camera & Bokeh bg, but I used different images & dies & added a little snapshot to mine.

To make my variation of the Bokeh background, I used a stencil I made quite a while back by die cutting different sizes of circles in a piece of copy paper. I sponged  the Distress inks thru the various sizes of circle masks, then I added a few sponged circles on top using white Brilliance ink. For the smallest circles, I used a pencil eraser. The little snapshot was made by die cutting a rounded square out of a rectangle die cut. I stamped part of the Palm Tree line on the back of a piece of vellum w/ Stazon & attached it to the back side of the frame.

Here’s a look at the inside.

It’s my turn to host the Inspiration Challenge (IC644) on Splitcoast, and I went with a site suggested by my friend Kia…Carlyle Avenue. There was a lot of very interesting stuff there but ultimately, I went with THIS. I really liked the gold & the textured look of the wall behind the shadowbox.

To make my card, I started by using an embossing folder on the piece of kraft c/s then I sponged a little of lightning black ink over the high points. I wanted a little more gold, so I also went over it using a metallic gold Prismacolor pencil. Then I used the fringe scissors all along the edges & roughed up the fringe a bit.
All of the dragonflies & daisies were embossed w/ gold & fussy cut. I used Prismacolors on the 2 kraft daisies & left the white one uncolored. The white circular frame was die cut & the flowers added in & under.

Here’s a look at the inside. The greeting was stamped w/ the lightning black so it has a nice metallic look in person.

Such a fun Technique Challenge (TLC683) today! And such a great idea from Sabrina…to trace & doodle your stencils, or make a stencil by using a die cut. After looking thru my stencils & not liking what I had for this technique, I remembered this wonderful Umbrella Man die that I have not used. I thought all the openness of the die would lend itself to doodling.

I die cut the umbrella man out of copy paper, traced it & then added all the doodled lines. I used just a few light colors of Copics here & there then added the greeting. A couple of layers & a few raindrops & done.
Here’s a look at the inside & below it are the Copics I used.
