It’s my turn to host the Splitcoast Featured Stamper Challenge (FS593) so a big Congrats to Jeri, the new Featured Stamper! She has such a cute, colorful gallery & after much browsing, I chose THIS to case. I kept the layout & cars w/ arrows, but I used different images, made my car out of die cuts & used fewer layers.

I really liked Jeri’s card w/ all the arrows & cute little cars. I had an arrow bg image but no cute little cars (must remedy that!). So I made my little red bug out of circle die cuts. After playing around w/ sizes & arrangements of the circles, I finally came to this & cut out the window part to add the blue behind it. More circles for the wheels. All the arrows were colored in for the bg then the greeting added and little puffs of smoke were drawn to finish it.

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

SW Birthday by Julie Warner http://thewritestuff.justwritedesigns.com/?p=28123

This is for the Splitcoast Inspiration Challenge (IC654) & Stacy chose the Vera Bradley site. Lovely colors & patterns there! I was inspired by THIS tote. I just love the colors & Southwest pattern.

To make my SW background, I applied Distress oxide inks to the inside of the embossing folder (Embossing Folder Stamping) then placed my die cut piece of white card stock inside. I actually used what would normally be the back side because I wanted just the lines & not the inside of the pattern. Leaving the c/s just where it was, I added a little more ink here & there where needed. When satisfied, I went ahead & ran it thru the Big Shot to emboss it because I also wanted the texture. The big Happy was die cut then stamped & double stacked on another white piece to give it some depth. The coral pieces were leftovers that seemed to fit in.

Here’s a look at the inside.

Welcome to the June #1 Blog Hop for Serendipity Stamps!

The Prize – One $20 gift code will go to one random commenter from the blogs. So be sure  to visit all the blogs because you don’t know which one the winner will be drawn from. You have through Sunday June 10 to leave comments on the blogs for a chance to win. Mary will announce a winner on June 11 on her Blog. On the first & third Wednesdays of every month, we’ll be celebrating with a Blog Hop! The Special this month is the Iris stamp – 50% off! 

My card is almost entirely made w/ dies. The only stamped item is the word “the” & I took it from the Wedded Bliss set. For the Lighthouse, I die cut it twice in white, twice in blue & once in mint green. After a lot of arranging, I stacked them together so that the blue would show on all sides w/ the green in the middle & a little white on the left side. I had a small piece of the wavy designer paper that I cut the top along one of the wavy lines and placed it behind the oval to resemble waves. A few little die cuts were added along w/ the two die cut words (Seas was cut from the Season’s Greetings die).

This is also for the Splitcoast Inspiration Challenge & THIS is my inspiration. 

Here’s a look at the inside. I left it blank until I decide who it’s going to & on what occasion. Maybe a birthday or Father’s Day.
Please be sure to comment on all the blogs..it is much appreciated & also increases your chances of winning!
