To make my card, I put the white panel into my Misti & lined up where I wanted the greeting. I stamped it 3 or 4 times, (using a piece of scotch tape to cover the last 2 lines), in order to get good coverage. Then I lined up the one straight up & down Daisy & stamped & colored it. After masking it, I stamped the other two. I had to do a little out of the box on the flowers when I die cut it. The large bg paper was die cut & since it was one of those paper pads that had a coordinating strip down the side (usually you tear these off) but I liked it so I kept it. I die cut the yellow strip using part of the Daisy Garden die to put over the seam.  A few sequins & a little stickles in the flower centers were added to finish.

I also made this for the Featured Stamper Challenge (FS533) on Splitcoast. I chose THIS card of Kelly’s to case..keeping most of the colors & layout. But I used different images, different papers & turned mine vertical.

Here’s a look at the inside w/ the other two lines of the Sisters greeting. Love this greeting & I think my sis will, too! Below it are the Copics I used for the daisies.

Such lovely floral arrangements on today’s Inspiration Challenge (IC593) on Splitcoast! My card was inspired by THIS lovely picture w/ it’s yellows & peachy oranges. I also liked the black bg because it gave me a chance to do the Prismacolor on black c/s again from the TLC632 challenge. Maybe I should call this one “Ducks at Night”. 

I like this technique, but it is challenging because you kind of have to think in reverse when coloring. I used my Misti to stamp the ducks with Brilliance moonlight white ink. Usually you use pigment ink but Brilliance dries so much faster & w/ the Misti, I can stamp it repeatedly to really make it bright. I used Prismas to color it then stamped over it again w/ the white ink.  Added the greeting below & a few stitched flowers around the circle.

Here’s a look at the inside using leftover frames & flowers.

Thanks so much for looking! Have a Happy Easter!

To make my Happy, happy birthday card, I die cut the white panel w/ the fabulous new Happy Background die. Wow! Does it ever make a birthday card attention grabbing & easy. I love that you can leave the big Happys in or push them out, like I did here to let some of the color of the bg paper show through. I stamped the Birthday onto a stitched flag w/ a navy ink & added a stacked die cut paper button for trim. 

Here’s a look at the inside. Since the paper I used behind the white Happy panel on the front is double sided, I die cut out a rectangle from the card front so that the other side of the dp shows thru on the inside. I used that cut out of the card to stamp my inside greeting on.
