A big congrats to Mary Ellen, the newest Featured Stamper (FS740) on Splitcoast! She has wonderful gallery & I chose THIS card to case. I kept the tag element & flowers, but used different images, dies, colors & changed the layout.

After coloring & die cutting the marigolds w/ a tag die, I added a scallop edge layer & some seam ribbon I dyed & wrinkled. I used a slimline lattice but shortened it to fit my A2 card & added a lime green panel behind it. I only used the first part of the greeting, replacing the rest w/ shadow layered word die.

Here are the Copics I used:

For the Splitcoast Inspiration Challenge (IC798), we are headed to the Pinterest Board of Penguin Random House, where I found the cover of  THIS book for my inspiration. 

On my card, I used a clear layering stamp set for the flowers & the added leaves. I used several different sets of the Color Fuse inks then die cut them w/ their matching dies.  A separate vine like leaf image was used to stamp the branched onto the large white panel then all the die cut flowers & leaves were attached on top. The greeting & a few gems were added to finish. Pretty easy!

A big congrats to Gayle, the newest Featured Stamper (FS730) on Splitcoast! She has a wonderful gallery & I was really intrigued by her 12 days of Christmas series & I chose THIS one to case. I liked the repetition of a single image, done in different colors so I kept that. I used different images, dies & colors & made mine a Thank You card. Gayle had 9 ladies &  actually, I had a 9th bird, but he just wouldn’t fit so I’m going w/ only 8. 

This card was a lot of fun to make. I love rainbows & I love birds so a bunch of rainbow birds is the best of both worlds. They kind of look like a chorus line, don’t they? After stamping, coloring & die cutting them, all I had to do was arrange them on the slimline layers. Fitting the greeting was probably the hardest part. When you use up this much real estate, it doesn’t leave a lot of space so this was my solution. So I put the 8th bird down on the greeting level to kind of even things out.

I even gave them eyes to match their plumage. Are these a color coordinated bunch of birds, or what?

It also takes a bunch of Copics to color these characters. The R’s went on reddish bird. The B’s on blue bird. The Y’s + the YR24 went on yellow bird. The rest of the YR’s went on orange bird. BG’s on teal bird. G’s on green bird. YG’s on yellow-green bird (the one in front). And RV’s on pink bird. The C2 was only used to shade their eyes.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
