It’s my turn to host the Splitcoast Featured Stamper Challenge, so a big congrats to Karen! She has a lovely gallery & I was very taken w/ THIS card…the colors, the layout..I just love it. Which is a little strange, because every time I try to use this blackberry or razzleberry color, I get into trouble. For me, they are very hard colors to work with. Anyway, I kept the colors & layout, but used different images & dies & made mine a birthday card.

After I white embossed the flowers & leaves onto white c/s, I sponged on the Distress inks in the purples & blues then die cut the flowers w/ the matching dies. I didn’t have paper anywhere near this purply color so I also sponged the wider strip down the side, then stamped the leaves w/ Versamark. I had to sponge the Wishing word to match, too. The white linen bg was sponged w/ the tumbled glass & the rest of the greeting was stamped w/ the Versafine purple ink. I came across a large bottle of dew drops (remember those?) so I added a few.

Here’s a look at the inside.

A big Congrats to Cathie, the newest Featured Stamper on Splitcoast (FS561)! She has a beautiful, growing little gallery & I chose THIS to case. I kept the Thanksgiving theme & used similar colors, but I used a different layout, different images & used embossing resist as my technique.

My card is pretty quick & easy.  I started by stamping & embossing the two leaves in white across mostly the top & left side. I had to do just a little masking. Then I sponged on Distress oxide & regular inks & blended them toward the bottom. After die cutting, I turned the thin layer upside down & put it back then stamped the greeting w/ the Versafine. A single embossed, sponged & fussy cut leaf was added on top.

Here’s a look at the inside.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a great weekend!

To make my Butterfly Wish card, I stamped the Butterfly Dream image repeatedly across a white panel then heat embossed it w/ white powder. The distress inks were then sponged across mainly the left side & I let them fade to white on the right. Some random water dots were sprinkled on top, then I took a water brush and lifted the color from the little leaves & added just a touch of green. It was die cut first w/ the largest matting basic die then I used one several sizes smaller to cut out the inside & I inserted a white layer between them.

The first part of the greeting was also done using emboss resist & the Wish die cut was double stacked. The Daisy Garden border die was cut out of white then I separated the diamond part from the flowers and attached one under the top layer & the other on top. I found some wide pink tulle polka dot ribbon & fussed w/ it a bit until I arrived at how it looks now. 
Here’s a look at the inside.
