    A big CONGRATS to Doni, the newest Featured Stamper (FS364) on Splitcoast! What a fantabulous gallery she has and I wish I could do CAS (clean & simple) as well as Doni. Believe it or not, I cased THIS card of hers. I loved the image cut out and on top of the pennant flag. Well, we all know how “stuff” happens…and it morphed. I kept the flag but since I turned it sideways I had to move the image more off of the flag to keep it balanced. I also changed the colors and added sequins, just ’cause.

    After stamping the Joy in a Jar image once on white and again on a dotted yellow piece of dp, I die cut the white image and used a 1″ circle punch for the yellow circle and a die for the navy circle. The apothecary jar was also stamped onto navy (very hard to see here), die cut w/ the matching die and the label was added on top. Some narrow white ribbon was colored w/ yellow Copics  and added to the jar. HINT: I also used a Prussian blue Copic marker to color a few lt blue sequins to match (it works!). The flag was die cut and the little narrow yellow strip is a cut off piece (the paper is double sided) so I placed it across the flag and added a fussy cut little image. The finished card is 5.50 x 4.25.

    Thanks so much for stopping by! Congrats again, Doni!
