It’s my turn to host the Featured Stamper Challenge (FS589) on Splitcoast. So a big congrats to Wanda, the newest Featured Stamper! She has a lovely gallery & I chose THIS to case. I kept the wheelbarrow full of flowers & most of the layout, but I used different images, different colors & added some little birds on a branch.

For my wheelbarrow, I wanted a softer look, so I stamped it in gray. It made it very close to a “no line” coloring & because the flowers are small, made it a little harder to color. I did the same to the little birds on the branch & fussy cut both. After I had the front linen panel layered to a soft lavender one, I lined up where I wanted the wheelbarrow & stamped just the little swirls in gray on the bg. 

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

The Sketch Challenge (SC697), is so clean & simple..basically just a slash coming in from the lower side. So for that slash, I have a partial pencil. I did flip the sketch & lay it horizontally & somehow the downward slash became an upward one. Oh well. 

This is definitely one of, if not THE simplist cards I’ve ever made. A lot of open white space tends to make me nervous.  This Pencil image is technically, supposed to go on the back of the card, but I couldn’t get this idea out of my head to put it on the front. To me, it looks made to go w/ the Dropping a Line, greeting. 

To make it, I die cut the white panel, then stamped the greeting & part of the pencil then colored them. I added some coloring under the greeting to make it slightly dimensional looking. Then I embossed the left side w/ part of an embossing folder. Lucky for me I had the pencil border folder & even luckier, I could find it! After embossing, I lightly rubbed a turquoise Prismacolor pencil over the raised lines.

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

I was able to combine 2 Splitcoast challenges with this card…the Technique (TLC690 -make a doodled frame) & the Clean & Simple (CAS481 – teacher or grad card). 

While I was pondering the doodled frame, I thought hmmm..I could make the greeting look like a chalkboard & white emboss the greeting. Then doodle a frame on it & around it.

After I white embossed the greeting & die cut it, I used the white pen to doodle the inside frame & the black pen to doodle the frame outside. The teacher tools were colored & fussy cut. The white hearts are part of the greeting on the inside & I inked just them & stamped them. I didn’t want to heat emboss them, so I used the white paint pen to make them stand out more.

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