It’s my turn to host the Splitcoast Featured Stamper Challenge (FS797) so a big congrats to Karen! She has a big, beautiful gallery & I chose THIS card to case. I kept the floral theme and long layout but used different images, dies & stencil.

For my card, I used a new stamp set & coordinating stencil. The stencil has layered parts so it’s so quick & easy to add color w/ no masking..I just love it! After I stamped it, I used the stencil to sponge on the yellows & lt reds for the flower & greens for the leaves. I did a little out of the box to keep from cutting off parts of the flower when I die cut it w/ mini slimline die. I added the greeting on its own oval & backed it w/ a scallop oval. On the lg green bg, after die cutting w/ the larger mini slimline, I used a new piercing cover die for some added interest.

Since I forgot to add the ink colors in my top picture, here are the colors I used to sponge the flower & leaves:

For the Splitcoast Inspiration Challenge (IC849), we’re visiting a company called Babasouk & their Pinterest Board where I found THIS lovely picture.


For my spring slimline, I stamped, colored & fussy cut the bike, then sponged the background sky, grass & sun. I used some little flower images from the Woodlands set to ad the row of flowers. The picket fence was die cut & since it’s an A2 size, I didn’t cut all the way to the end, moved the die down, matching up the pickets, & cut the rest of the way, effectively adding almost another length of fence. A lt gray Copic was used to add some dimension to the fence. A couple of sections of grass were added; 1 behind the fence & 1 in front. The cloud edges were lightly sponged & added across the top.

Here are the Copics I used:

For the Splitcoast Inspiration Challenge, we’re visiting a Window Display Pinterest Board, where I found THIS display for my inspiration.

To make my mini slimline card, I started by putting the outline of the flower image into my Misti & stamping it w/ black. Instead of removing the outline & replacing it w/ the different layers of the image, I left the outline in place & moved the image to another corner where I stamped the different layers in blues & teals. When dry, I moved it back under the outline image, stamped it w/ the Versaclair nocturne & clear embossed the outline. Usually I’d tend to do the embossing first, but I know sometimes the raised lines will interfere w/ the solid layers getting all the way to the edges. I repeated this w/ another large flower, 2 small flowers & the leaves, then die cut them all. The white panel was die cut first w/ the nested stitch mini slimline die, then w/ the triple panel stitch inset. On a lt blue panel, I used the repeating brick stencil & some of the lt teal inks to make the brick bg. This was also die cut w/ the triple window inset & the greeting stamped in the far right window. I popped the white panel up a bit & attached the blue brick insets inside, directly on the card front. The flowers (some also popped up) were added along w/ some gems.

Thanks so much
