A big congrats to Amber, the newest Featured Stamper (FS836)! She has a beautiful gallery & I chose THIS card to case. I kept the layout & flower thank you theme, but used different images, dies & colors. Instead of using the white wash like she die, i used Prismacolor pencils on my flowers.

For my card, I die cut the dk grey panel using the 2nd largest mini slimline die. By coincidence, it is just the right size for an A2 card. I used my Misti, both flowers & a pair of leaves from the stamp set along w/ the masks for the flowers (comes w/ the set), to stamp the images using gray flannel ink. Prismacolor pencils & a white Signo pen were used to color them. I die cut a pale grey & dusty pink panel to layer beside the dk grey.

The single flower was stamped onto a piece of the pale grey & again, colored w/ Prismas & a white Signo. This flower was die cut & popped up on foam. For the greeting tag, I stamped it w/ versaclair & clear embossed it. I used the smallest tag to die cut it. Then I moved the die a couple of times..both up from the bottom & in from both sides to make a much smaller tag.

Here are the Prismacolor pencils I used (listed on the pic in order from left to right). The pencils to the right of the white pencil are the ones I used on the single flower. The others were used on the flowers on the grey background. Those colors were too peachy to match when I colored in the single flower on the very light grey paper. Colors usually look totally different depending on what color you use for your background. For the bright white edges of the petals, I used the white gel pen & immediately softened it a bit w/ a water brush. The gel ink is pretty much water soluble (until it dries) & I wanted it to look a little softer & blend in more. 

Thanks so much for stopping by!

For the Splitcoast Inspiration Challenge (IC885), we’re visiting a site called Backyard Bliss & their Pinterest Board where I chose THIS picture as my inspiration.

I started w/ the new Birch Tree cover die for my card. After die cutting it out of white, I also die cut one out of black fun foam, to not only elevate it but also to have the black show thru the spots in the birch trees. I used a grey Prismacolor pencil to add the shading on the trees. For the background, I used a piece of dk grey & added 3 single birch trees. Then I placed the die cut deer in & around the the birch trees on top. I liked the dimension of the two layers of birch trees gives. A pair of cardinals & the Merry were added on top. I used the white pencil & a white gel pen to add the snow in the background.

so much for stopping by!

A big congrats to Leslie, the newest Featured Stamper (FS779) on Splitcoast! She has a wonderful gallery & I chose THIS card to case. I kept the layout & lovely color combo, but I used different images & dies, and instead of an embossed floral, I stamped mine & colored in just a bit w/ a white Prismacolor pencil.

For my card, I used a 4 part layered floral set, but stamped only 2 of the layers..the outline & the final detail layers w/ 2 colors of the teal Color Fuse set. A white pencil was used to add just a hint of white in the petals. I die cut it using one of the new mini slimline stitched dies & used one of the scallop w/ holes for the white layer. I used a smaller size of the same set for the greeting, & moved one end in, matched it up & cut it shorter than normal. For the bg mini slimline cover die, I cut one end to just past the half way point, turned it around, & brought the other end up to make it shorter so it would fit my A2 card. I cut another piece, about an inch & half wide & attached it down the left side to make the panel look wider. The join of the two is hidden behind the floral layers.
