It’s my turn to host the Featured Stamper Challenge (FS576) on Splitcoast, so a big congrats to Susy! After browsing her lovely gallery, I kept coming back to THIS card. I love the white on kraft & layout so I kept those, but I used different images, added a couple more layers & made mine a birthday card.

After stamping & white embossing then I added some pale colors w/ Prismacolor pencils. I added a fussy cut tab w/ the greeting on it & a fussy cut dragonfly on the ribbon. I used a white gel pen to add some dots because I forgot I wanted to add some white splatter before I put the card together 🙂

Here’s a look at the inside.

Supplies:

Stamps: Innovative Stamp Creations – Oriental Nature Elements
Paper:  Staples 110# white, kraft
Ink:   Colorbox frost white pigment (fluid chalk ink used on inside)
Accessories:  Prismacolor pencils,   Lil’ Inker stitched rectangles, Spellbinders A2 matting basics A & B dies, white embossing powder, polka dot tulle ribbon

And also, I have a card I made for the Inspiration Challenge (IC637) because I forgot to post it yesterday.


I was inspired by THIS iris, Be Original. Somewhere along the line, the colors went a little sideways & I think I created a totally different hybrid iris!

After coloring, I did a little out of the box when I die cut it. I was looking thru some old backgrounds I made eons ago & came across part of one made w/ Marvy metallic markers & the colors seemed right.

Here are the Copics I used.

Supplies:

Stamps: Anita’s – Iris,  The Stamps of Life – Back to Basics
Paper:  Staples 110# white, X-Press It white, purple, glossy white
Ink:   Memento tuxedo black, Stazon black
Accessories:  Copic markers Spellbinders A2 matting basics B & circles  dies, Cuttlebug embossing folder (Matelesse), Marvy metallic markers

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Today’s challenges on Splitcoast, TLC677 & CAS468 were combined for this card. The Technique was use a paper towel roll as a painting tool & the Clean & Simple was to have a bird.

So for the technique challenge, I took the cardboard center of a paper towel roll & cut a piece off then cut it up the middle & used only about half of it. After rolling this piece much tighter (for a smaller circumference) I taped it the slit the bottom as per the technique. After stamping w/ the different colors of paint, I let it dry. It wasn’t quite as pretty as I hoped it would be, so I just a section of it behind the toucan. The toucan was colored w/ Copics & die cut. 

Here are the Copics I used for the toucan.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Supplies:

Stamps: Stampendous – Laurel Burch Toucan, Stampa Rosa – Bird Day
Paper:  Staples 110# white

Mary will announce a winner on Feb 12 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 Judy’s Lg. Easter Basket stamp – 50% off!

My Easter card turned out different from the way I planned it. I had a lovely background I had die cut the Bunny out of & I was going to use the same iridescent white as the rest of the card to fill in the flowers. Then I decided I liked just the iridescent white bunny the best. So I’ll save the other bunny for another card. In case you’re wondering, this is the original bunny.

The Easter Basket was gold embossed onto the iridescent white c/s & I used a few Tombow (water based) markers to color in the eggs. I put a half circle window layer on top of the basket because w/ the bunny in front, it looked a little busy w/ the basket behind him. The top of the bow was fussy cut to allow it to be lifted above the top layer.
Here’s a look at the inside. The basket & a few flowers were stamped w/ Brilliance gold for a soft look. No greeting…I realized I don’t have an Easter greeting, so I’ll have to hand write it.

Next stop is Vickie’s Blog!  Please be sure to comment on all the DT Blogs..it will be so appreciated & also increase your chances of winning!
