Well,  today’s sketch (SC636) had me stumped for a bit. Until I had the idea to use the 4 way Chevron die & cut a piece of white for that diagonal part #3 of the sketch. The row of flowers is my part #4. I did flip the sketch because it fit my images better.

The tired lady (yep, she looks a lot like I feel by the end of most days) was stamped onto an already die cut little rectangle & I used some of the cut out parts of the Chevron die & colored them lime, as border elements. 

Here’s a look at the inside, using more of this cut out pieces, & below it are the Copics I used.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

It’s my turn to host the Featured Stamper (FS525) challenge on Splitcoast. I chose Karen, aka redbugdriver, so a big Congrats to Karen! After much browsing, I picked this & this to case…combining elements of both for my card. I kept the cute little girl & layout from the first & the big heart & color from the second. But I used different images & different die cuts. 

 This cute little ballerina kind of reminds me of when my mom put me in ballet class. Except my tutu for the recital was green & orange…and the glittery fabric was itchy as all get out. My regular practice tights & leotard were pink like this little cutie; but we didn’t wear tutus for practice, thank goodness. Apparently I was a bit hyper. Mom also made me take tap, jazz &  acrobatics. Pretty much a full boat of dance classes.

My little pink ballerina was colored & fussy cut. On the front of the white panel, I die cut a big fancy heart then stamped the greeting off to the left & the feet of the ballerina on the right then attached my cutie on top. 

Here’s a look at the inside. I put together 2 greetings for this. Below it are the Copics I used.

For my vintage inspired hatstand card, I started w/ a piece of watercolored bg I had in my stash. The colors are kind of pink/violet & the paper has a texture so I stamped over it w/ the Medallion Bg using the grape ink. I like how the texture gives it a sort of worn wallpaper tapestry look. After die cutting it w/ one of the Pierced Rectangles, I used one of the Leafy Edged Border dies to cut the bottom & another to cut a dk violet strip to go under it. The image itself was colored w/ Copics & die cut. the little ornamental side pieces are from the die cut border. I didn’t have much room left for a greeting at the bottom, just enough to stamp one of the Medallion Greetings

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