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.


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.


Stamps: Anita’s – Iris,  The Stamps of Life – Back to Basics

It’s my turn to host the Splitcoaststampers Featured Stamper Challenge (FS508) so a big congrats to Jeanne, aka Penny627! She has such a wonderful gallery & after much browsing, I chose THIS to case. I didn’t have a cute little Halloween girl, but I had a cute little Christmas girl. So I kept the basic layout & circle element, but I used different images, different colors & since there isn’t a die for this cutie, I did a complicated out of the box/into the window for her. 
Sigh…I’m not gonna took me quite a while to color this lovely, then it took me longer to figure out how I was going to handle her, since she’s a bit bigger than I thought when I ordered her. To make the circle opening, after a lot of consideration, I traced around the smallest Grand circle die & used a craft knife to cut away the area around her that fell inside the circle. I used the same circle along w/ the largest of the regular circle dies to cut the silver glitter layer & put it behind her. The card started out to be 5.5″ square, but I just felt uneasy w/ it, so I cut it down to fit A2 & added just a touch of snowflake embossing on the lower corners & strips of the silver glitter on either side. It changed the look a bit, but I like the partial circle a lot better. I added a die cut Joy out of the silver glitter above the Happy Holidays that is part of the red designer paper I used to back the image.

Here’s a look at the inside & below it are the many Copics I used.
Thanks so much for stopping by!

Congrats to Heather, the Featured Stamper on Splitcoast (FS374)! What a wonderful gallery! After much browsing, I finally chose her Triple Snowflakes to case. I kept the lovely layout and small squares, but changed the colors, the images and added a couple of layers.

The background layer was sponged with several colors from the Kaleidacolor ink pad, the I used a random dot image (Anita’s) on top in the same colors. The flower image (Judikins) was stamped on the left side and I sponged around the edges. The sentiment (Our Daily Bread designs) was added in the lower right corner.

The little bird squares (Mike’s $/Studio 112/K&Co) were stamped on top of a separate piece which was also sponged. They were die cut w/ Spellbinders square dies as were the black squares behind them. I used a 1/2 inch circle punch to punch out a piece of an extra stamped square and a 5/8 inch circle punch for the black circle and attached them in the upper right corner and put a clear epoxy half round on top. The finished card is 5.50 x 4.25.

Thanks so much for looking!
