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!

It’s my turn to host the Featured Stamper Challenge  (FS545) on Splitcoaststampers, so a big congrats to Cindy, the newest Featured Stamper! After much browsing, I chose THIS to case. I kept the circle element at the top & the layout, but I used different images, different colors & left off the shaker. 


I love me some boots & no matter how many pair I have, I’m always on the look out for a snazzy pair like these.  I call these my Texas Bluebonnet boots. I used colors that remind me of bluebonnets in the spring. Do you think somebody somewhere has actually made boots like these? I hope so..& if I ever find them, they’re coming home w/ me! 

After I stamped & colored them, I die cut the circle burst above them then cut a series of circles out of the lime & lavender to fit behind the rings of dots. Half of the greeting was stamped in the center & the rest of it was stamped onto a pennant flag. I added a couple of matching mats to finish.
Here’s a look at the inside & below it are the Copics I used.

Howdy Star Shaker cu 09670
Weekly-Favorite
A big congrats to Donna, the newest Featured Stamper (FS498) on Splitcoast! I didn’t have to go far to find THIS card to case (copy & share everything). I kept the shaker card & most of the colors & layout, but I used different images, a star shaped shaker instead of a round one, & used a cowboy/southwest theme on mine.
Howdy Star Shaker 09665
For my star shaker, I started by stamping the cowboy/cowgirl accessories image, coloring w/ Copics, then I did a little into the window to keep from cutting off the top of the boots when I die cut the stitched star opening. I made a larger star shaped pouch out of a page protector, sealed the edges but leaving one edge open, filled it w/ sequins, stars & little punched cowboy boots, then sealed the remaining edge. After attaching the shaker pouch behind the opening, I added foam tape all behind the panel & attached it to another white back panel. A couple of narrow frames (one brown, one turquoise) were added behind it before attaching to the card. The Howdy was die cut & I used some of the same Copics to color it to match.

Here’s the inside & below it are the Copics I used. Howdy Star Shaker inside 09672
