It’s my turn to host the Splicoast Featured Stamper Challenge (FS597). A big congrats to Selma, the newest Featured Stamper! She has a fabulous gallery full of beautiful creations & after much browsing, I chose THIS to case. I kept the layout & field of daisies, but made mine smaller, left off the outer punched layer & used a different greeting.
I happened to have (& hadn’t used before) the same mini daisy dies so I die cut all the petals & leaves & added just a touch of color. I die cut some grass & used punches for the butterflies, bird & fence, Polka dot Candi dots were added to the flower centers. 

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Supplies:

Stamps: Hero Arts (greeting)
Paper: Staples 110# white, teal, turquoise, green
Ink: Memento tuxedo black
Accessories: Spellbinders A2 matting basics A & B dies, Sizzix mini daisy dies, Cheery Lynn grass die, picket fence, butterflies & birds punches, Candi dots

Such a fabulous site Brenda chose for the Inspiration Challenge! I loved THIS w/ the sweet little birdhouse so it was my inspiration. 
For my card, I used the new Bird Feeder image (I love the little nuthatch!) &  wonderful greeting. Since it mentions stormy weather, I wanted the background to reflect that so after stamping & coloring the bird feeder, I masked it then sponged in the bg. I stamped the greeting then added a few raindrops I drew & cut out. I used a birds on a wire punch across a piece of black c/s then added strips of gray & red for contrast to the black layer. A little red bird was added just because…
Here’s a look at the inside & below it are the Copics I used.

Birthday Butterflies Doily 04599
Today is a bittersweet day. We (the Featured Stamper Hostesses) are having to say goodbye to one of our own…Bridget Finlay. We are sad she is leaving, but we understand that Bridget has an important mission. 

For this card, I chose THIS card of Bridget’s. I really love the contrast of the turquoise & peach and her perfect layout, so I kept those. For me, the real challenge of caseing Bridget is I don’t want to change a thing! But change I must, so I used different images, a doily die cut instead of the heart and I used a stamped, die cut butterfly instead of the punched one Bridget used. 

I started with a die cut white panel, attached some drywall mesh and sponged on the tumbled glass ink in a random rather than solid manner, then added a little splatter w/ the same ink & a water brush. After die cutting the doily w/ peach, I cut it apart & reassembled it a little smaller to fit the area. The big butterfly was stamped on dp & die cut. I really loved the shiny little teal leaf embellies Bridget used, so I made mine out of aluminum foil glued to c/s, colored w/ Copics and die cut. For the flower, I used a Prima on top and punched a larger one to go underneath.

To make the greeting, I die cut the letters out of turquoise twice, stacked them on top of each for dimension & glued them in an up/down manner to mimic the wonderful die Bridget used. The pretty little flower on top of the big butterfly was a gift from my sweet friend, Sabrina

Stamps: Our Daily Bread designs Butterfly
Paper:  white, peach, turquoise, small piece of dp (Basic Grey -Hopscotch)

Because I could spend a lifetime caseing Bridget, I made a second card in her honor.
Sew Special Day 04606
For my card, I cased THIS card of Bridget’s. I just love the bright colors and spools of thread. So I kept those, but I used different images/dies and made my own backgrounds.

Sew Specail Day cu 04611
The big solid doily image was stamped w/ the yellow ink on the large bg and partials of it were stamped w/ the other ink colors on the side strip. The little thread spools were stamped, colored & die cut & on two of them I trimmed away the measuring tape. After stamping the 2 greetings, I pierced around the edge, added a punched button border & some colorful buttons. These are the Copics I used.
