Congrats to Lisa, the newest Featured Stamper (FS704) on Splitcoast! She has a beautiful gallery & I chose THIS to case. I kept the squiggly frame & balloons, but since I didn’t have a lady I could put w/ the balloons, I used a scooter & a tiny bird w/ presents.

After stamping the birthday frame, I die cut the pieces of the scooter, flowers, grass, mountains & balloons. The tiny bird & presents were colored & die cut. It’s part of a much larger image so I just trimmed that part away. The mountains & road were attached & the scooter is popped up a bit on top of them. I used some of the green Color Fuse inks to vary the colors of the mountains.

Here are the Copics I used for the little bird w/ the presents.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Welcome to July!  And it’s time for the Splitcoaststampers Fan Club July Christmas Challenge! We have a year of new Christmas Challenges!  You’ll need to be Fan Club member but that’s easy…just click the blue link to find out how. Bet you’re wondering what the challenge theme is..I’d love to tell you but you’ll have to go see for yourself.

For my card, I die cut the new Slimline die in white. I die cut two of the cabin & fireplace in white & one in white glitter, along w/ the trees in white glitter. Then I put them all inside the little frames & stamped only a small part of the greeting on the frame.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

A big congrats to Cathy, the newest Featured Stamper (FS699) on Splitcoast! She has such a big, beautiful gallery it was hard to pick just one. For my card, I cased THIS card of Cathy’s. I liked the little rectangle image w/ the greeting underneath, so I kept those. I used different dies,  a polka dot dp & totally changed the theme as well as flipping the layout. Yeah..I’m not sure how the cactus turned into a cafe set, but there it is.

For my little cafe scene, I die cut the patio set 3 white, gray & hot pink, then stacked them. I shaped the umbrella a bit & added little pink birds & a flower vase. I came across the gray & pink polka dot paper & IRL, the gray frame accents it really well. But I’ve found most grays really freak out my camera. Anyway, lots of layered frames were stacked because it helped them show up better & I noticed Cathy likes a lot of layers. 

Thanks so much for stopping by!
