It’s my pleasure to host this week’s Featured Stamper Challenge (FS758) & a big congrats to Linda! She has a lovely gallery & I chose THIS card to case. I kept the layout & butterflies but used different images, dies & slightly different colors.


For my CAS card, I first die cut the white panel then masked off the largest area on the right & sponged some colors on the left. I placed it into my Misti & stamped the 2 part flower/stems images on top. The butterflies were stamped & colored on a separate piece & die cut. The strips were stacked & added as a divider like Linda did. Just a little stickles was used on parts of the butterfly wings & flower centers.

Here are the Copics I used on the butterflies:

For the Splitcoast Inspiration Challenge (IC766), we are headed to Allen Designs Studio & after much browsing, I chose THIS for my inspiration.

 

My card features these cute little bees & sunflowers on a Slimline card. I’m really loving these new dies! After I die cut the white front & all the flowers & bees, I put them together. For the background, I found a leftover piece of mixed media I made, who knows how long ago, using metallic acrylic paints. I liked the colors so I die cut circles bigger than the openings (to show thru the little dots surrounding the circles), then cut them again w/ smaller circles. I used a honeycomb die on the smaller circles, then put them back inside, leaving out a few of the hexagons.

It’s my pleasure to host the Splitcoast Inspiration Challenge (IC752) this week & we’re headed to the Canva Pinterest Boards. They have a website, but their Pinterest Boards are a lot more user friendly. I was inspired by THIS picture. I really loved the bright colors!

For my card, I white embossed the squiggly frame & greeting. I used a set of scallop circle dies for my wreath & added the die cut flowers on either side. Since I didn’t have a bird large enough, I used a stacked butterfly. The orange strip was fan folded & stretched across. These bright happy colors remind me of a Cinco de Mayo parade & I marched in a lot of those during my years in the school marching band.
