A big congrats to Kelly, the newest Featured Stamper (FS778) on Splitcoast! She has a lovely gallery & I was really taken w/ THIS card. I kept the layout & color, but I used different stamps & dies & white embossed on the green instead of using dp. 

For my thank you card, I white embossed the outline flower branches on the dark green & embossed one of the solid “filler” images from the same set, onto the pink vellum. Another flower & leaf set was used to stamp the white panel w/ Distress rustic pine oxide ink. It was first die cut w/ the same lg stitched rect die, then I moved one side in, matched up the stitches, & cut it again to make it narrower. I popped up the white panel & greeting oval a bit w/ foam.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

My friend, Jean, on the Splitcoast Technique Lovers Challenge team, asked me to make a sample for today’s TLC877 Challenge. She picked a technique I did a tutorial for 10 years ago! You can see the tutorial HERE on Splitcoast, & I even made a video for it HERE. (You can also view a tutorial I did on my blog HERE.)

This time I did a winter theme & used snowflakes for the bg. I forgot my own advice about using small stamps but was happy to see a white Posca paint pen took care of the few little oversteps.

I will mention, I die cut the stitched back panel first then measured to know where to score the “tiles”. The panel measures 4″x 5.25″ so I scored the lines 1 5/16″ apart. The first time I scored them, I used a Scor-Buddy but found the lines weren’t as deep as when I used a Scor-It board. You want to be sure to use the indented side of the scored bg for your front side.

The teddy was stamped, colored & die cut, popped up a bit on the center panel. The deckle frame was sponged w/ the same set of blue inks I used on the bg & I added a few glitter snowflakes. Here are the Copics I used:

Congrats to Emma, the newest Featured Stamper (FS770) on Splitcoast! She has a beautiful gallery & after much browsing, I chose THIS card to case. I kept the pencil/Copic on kraft & CAS design, but I used different images & dies & made mine a Christmas card.

I started by stamping the cute snowman & using his matching die to cut out a mask for him out of copy paper. After masking, I stamped the tree behind him & the present in his hand. I used Copics, for the most part, to color everything, but accented the snowman & snow on the ground & tree using a white Prisma pencil. The snowflakes were white embossed so they’d really show up. The greeting was stamped & I used a white gel pen to add the “snow” on top of the letters. This card didn’t take much time & since it’s flat & all on one layer, it will definitely be mailable.

Here are the Copics I used:
