Congrats to Mary, the newest Featured Stamper (FS596) on Splitcoast! She has lovely gallery & I chose THIS to case. I kept the Friend & flower theme & layout, but I used different colors, die cuts instead of stamps & a circle opening instead of an oval.

The colors on my flowers came about when I was refilling some Copics the other day. I noticed the inside of some of the caps were a total mess so I poured a little 91% isopropyl alcohol into them & thought it was a shame to waste all that color. So I poured it out onto a white piece of card stock. I liked the way it looked so I used it for the flowers & greeting. The lg circle burst was die cut into the white & a turquoise layer put behind. Then all I had to do was arrange the flowers, add a few sequins & some Copic tinted crystals. I will mention in case any of you have trouble (like I do) getting the letters straight…I left the letters in the die, added tiny dots of glue to the backsides, then turned the die over onto the c/s & pressed thru the die holes to release. Worked like a charm!

Here’s a look at the inside. I used the negative of one of the flowers as a stencil. 

Thanks so much for stopping by!

A big congrats to Janja, the newest Featured Stamper (FS591) on Splitcoast! She has a really lovely gallery & I chose THIS to case. I loved the layout w/ the split panel and pretty flowers so I kept that, but I used different images, different dies & reversed the angle of the split.

I actually have the same azalea image but didn’t use it because I thought that would be too matchy matchy. So I stamped, colored & die cut 2 of the lily images. I don’t have a specific angle cut die like she used, so after die cutting the white panel, I just picked a rectangle die that I liked the edges & turned it on an angle to cut the panel apart. 

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

For the Inspiration Challenge (IC649), Angie chose Vineyard Marketplace & I chose THIS for my inspiration. I like the bright colors & floral theme.

This bg was made a while ago, using swirls made with plain old glue then using watercolors on top of it. I just really like the bright, happy colors & thought they’d go well behind these whimsical leaves. The leaves were put into my Misti, stamped, colored w/ Copics & a Prismacolor pencil overlay, then stamped again. I added the greeting & did my out of the box technique to die cut it. By the way, I first did that tutorial way back in Feb 2009 using another IO image set! It’s probably my most used technique. After matting, I used stickles in some areas, added a few sequins & some white dots for contrast. 

Thanks so much for stopping by!
