A big congrats to Vicky, the newest Featured Stamper (FS546) on Splitcoaststampers!  After much browsing, I chose THIS card to case. I kept the girly theme & layout, but I used different images, changed the top section a little & used an embossing folder instead of designer paper.

I think this little Cowgirl   is just adorable!  After stamping & color her, I added the greeting beside her & colored it, too. Then I used just the sparkle element from the greeting I used on the inside & stamped it w/ lt pink & lt blue. I added the paisley embossed topper & I rubbed a white Prismacolor pencil over the high points to bring them out a bit. A little stickles  was added for the bling.

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


Thanks so much for stopping by!

Today’s Clean & Simple (CAS433) Challenge on Splitcoast, is all about Flag Day…use the colors of your country’s flag. Nothing better than the old Red, White & Blue! 

When this greeting came out last month, I immediately had a picture of a Super Hero Mom w/ a red cape. So after stamping her, I drew a flowing cape & colored everything to go with the Flag theme & threw in some stars & stripes (chevrons).   I die cut a pierced oval frame & royal blue layer for it, then did a little out of the box so Super Mom could be coming out of the frame. I’m sure Super Mom had to do a quick Clark Kent maneuver to fly off and take care of some kid (or husband) emergency 😛
Here are the Copics I used to color her.


Thanks so much for stopping by! Have to go put on my cape now & take care of a few things, lol.

For my Christmas wreath, after coloring it, I die cut it w/ an arch die & did a little out of the box for the parts that hung outside the edge. I was going for the look of a wreath hanging on an arched door. I used some double stitched rectangles to construct the white layer behind it & stamped the greeting over the arch. The two printed papers were die cut, then I stacked them, cut them then put the top of the print on top of the plaid. I used a stitched band behind the arch to go over the split of background paper. Sort of a chair rail look. Since there was still so much blank space below on the plaid paper, I stamped the Christmas on a little rectangle & added the white Merry above it. 

Here’s a look at the inside & below it are the Copics I used. christmas-wreath-inside00096 christmas-wreath-copics-00088
