Congrats to Lisa, the newest Featured Stamper (FS704) on Splitcoast! She has a beautiful gallery & I chose THIS to case. I kept the squiggly frame & balloons, but since I didn’t have a lady I could put w/ the balloons, I used a scooter & a tiny bird w/ presents.

After stamping the birthday frame, I die cut the pieces of the scooter, flowers, grass, mountains & balloons. The tiny bird & presents were colored & die cut. It’s part of a much larger image so I just trimmed that part away. The mountains & road were attached & the scooter is popped up a bit on top of them. I used some of the green Color Fuse inks to vary the colors of the mountains.

Here are the Copics I used for the little bird w/ the presents.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

 Welcome to August!  And it’s time for the Splitcoaststampers Fan Club Aug Christmas Challenge! We have a year of new Christmas Challenges!  You’ll need to be Fan Club member but that’s easy…just click the blue link to find out how. Bet you’re wondering what the challenge theme is..I’d love to tell you but you’ll have to go see for yourself. I’m also combing this w/ the Inspiration Challenge (IC765) & THIS was my inspiration.

I struggled w/ this card. I had an idea in my head but this didn’t really turn out like that…isn’t that always the case? Anyway, I gold embossed the big ornament. It was so big I only used half of it. I sponged some yellow inks on it & also on a large bg. On the bg, I also sponged a little Brilliance galaxy gold to give it a nice shimmer. Then the wrapped string was heat embossed w/ clear/gold sparkle powder & I die cut out the mid section, inserted the white layer (w/ the embossed greeting) & put it back on the rest of the bg.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

For the Inspiration Challenge (IC763) on Splitcoast, we’re headed to a gardening site. So many choices but I was inspired by THIS picture.

After coloring & die cutting the panel, I split it in two & removed a section in the middle. I didn’t have the color of glitter paper I wanted, so I took some gold glitter wrapping paper, die cut it, then ran a black Copic over it to darken it. I used some of to edge the white panels, make a deckled strip to put on top of the orangey sponged panel, a larger piece to back the entire panel. It’s all attached to an orange slimline card. A few jet gemstones were added to finish.

Here are the Copics I used for the flower:
