A big congrats to Shirley, the newest Featured Stamper on Splitcoast! She has lovely little gallery and I chose THIS to case. I kept the flowers theme & framing, but I used different images, different colors,  added a couple of frames & made mine a sympathy card.

After die cutting the white panel a couple of times, I sponged the pinks & aquas onto the center one, then stamped the greeting &  flower branch w/ the gray ink. A little color was added to the flowers & I used a white gel pen for the centers. The narrowest stitched frame was sponged aqua to match (since I didn’t have any card stock to match) & I added a gray mat inside. The dogwoods were stamped w/ gray, lightly colored w/ Copics & fussy cut to add on top of the frame. 

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


Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a great weekend!

Today’s Clean & Simple Challenge (CAS429) on Splitcoast asks us to “get techy” & show/use some kind of technology. I’m sure a whole lot of technology went into the space program.
In fact, growing up The Jetsons was one my fave cartoons & I couldn’t wait to grow up & have Rosie be my robot maid or have a flying space car or dinner from an electronic dumbwaiter in the wall. Hmmm…I’m still waiting!  But I do have George Jetson’s boy Elroy & his dog Astro on my card. The image was stamped, colored & fussy cut to add to a bg I made ages ago & near as I can remember, it was sponged w/ the distress inks then stenciled w/ white pigment ink. I stamped the image again on this bg in order to have the stars, which I colored in & added Wink of Stella. The cut out circle was added back w/ the greeting on top. 

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

A big congrats to Anita, the newest Featured Stamper (FS530)on Splitcoast! She has such a pretty little gallery & THIS is the card I picked to case. I kept the die cut background & flower theme, but I used different images, different dies, moved the greeting to a center circle  & turned the layout horizontal.

I really liked the leafy looking die cut bg, but I don’t have a die like that so I took a set of dies & die cut them a bunch of times across the bg. Then I put the outlines back into the slots that were cut. I found a piece of really pale peach paper & attached the bg on top of it. I already had the narrow little stitched frames so I sponged one w/ the tattered rose & attached the other on top. The dogwoods were stamped, colored & fussy cut. The greeting was stamped on one circle & the outer circle was sponged like the inner frame.

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

Thanks so much for stopping by!
