Congrats to Angie, the newest Featured Stamper (FS751) on Splitcoast! She has a beautiful gallery & I chose THIS card to case. I kept the colored bg w/ the lattice die cut on top & the flower in the corner, but I used different images & dies, different colors & a stamped flower instead of a die cut flower.

For my card, I used a brayer & a rainbow pad to create my bg & I used a slimline lattice die for the cover. Instead of cutting it lengthwise, I turned it sideways & cut 2 short pieces to put side by side, horizontally. I knew the greeting strip would cover the join, so I didn’t even worry about that. The sides were trimmed down a bit to fit & I added a lime green layer behind it. The peony was half die cut/half fussy cut, using my out of the box method.

Here are the Copics I used on the peony:

Thanks so much for stopping by!

It’s the last day of the Splitcoast Dare to Get Dirty Challenges & I made this to fit a couple of the challenges..Janine’s Challenge & Polly’s Challenge. For all the details go to the Dare to Get Dirty Forum..but you’ll need to be a Fan Club member (click the blue link to find out how).

This is probably one of the quickest cards I’ve made in a while. The bg & white frame were already made & had been hanging around in my stash for quite awhile. If I remember correctly, I brayered the inside of the embossing folder w/ a rainbow ink pad then embossed it. Party Pig is the only thing I had to do. Just colored & cut him out. His hat was the only thing that didn’t come out right. Let’s just say…beware of Copics w/ the wrong caps on them. People who have watched me color have asked why I’m so quick to put the caps back on when I’m using them. This is why. If I leave the caps off, I seem to always get them mixed up. Oh well! 

Here’s the inside & the Copics I used. (The green one was the culprit! Bad marker, bad marker!)

Such a lovely site for the Splitcoast Inspiration Challenge! After much window shopping, I chose THIS picture for my inspiration. My colors ended up being a little more blue than green, but that’s how it goes sometimes.

For my card, I stamped the lovely poppies onto 3 slightly different shades of teal using teal ink. I colored them all w/ the same Prismacolor pencils then die cut w/ the matching die. The background was done on glossy card & I stamped a bunch of different Birthday greetings w/ clear resist ink then brayered over it w/ a Kaliedacolor rainbow ink pad. I spattered it a little w/ wet paintbrush then dabbed off the water drops. The resist images were very easy to see at first (you can see it in the pic w/ the Prismas, below), but by the next day when I took the rest of the pics, the words had just about faded into the bg & only the water splats remained. I used a circle &  a rectangle frame to give my image & bg a little punch then added the die cut greeting. It actually says Wishes but I trimmed off the es. 

Here’s the inside & below it are the Prismas I used.
