It’s my turn to host the Splitcoast Featured Stamper Challenge (FS608) & I chose Chrissy, aka DanceswithHooves. She has a lovely gallery & I chose THIS card to case. I kept most of the layout but ended up changing most everything else. Different stamps, dies & colors. 
My card started with a leftover background & already colored image (you can see the other one on THIS post). As I’ve probably mentioned, I apparently save everything, lol. I stamped the other little telephone multiple times across the leftover background then used a zigzag border die to cut the bottom & add the black piece. Since most everything else was already made, this was a really quick card. 

Here’s a look at the inside & if you want the Copics I used, please click on the referenced green link above. Good thing I had that way I would have remembered what I used. And sadly, I think all of these images are discontinued but you can see the sets below.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Julie Warner –
 big congrats to Jodi, the Featured Stamper (FS331) on Splitcoast! What a super gallery and I noticed she has a lot of vintage images and little frames w/ a postage stamp edge, so I chose her Hello, Bonnie Blue Bell to case. I kept the Hello theme, soft colors and general layout, but I used different images, made my background instead of using dp and put the sentiment on the image panel.

I stamped the greeting  next to the little telephone and colored it w/ Copics, using the colors from Tuesday’s Color Challenge (CC429), sand, pink & sky. To make the background, I placed a couple of strips of drywall mesh across white c/s and sponged the colors on. I added a few strips of painter’s tape and sponged on more color. I die cut one frame using the postage stamp squares (resized to a rectangle) and a narrow white frame around the outside. I used copics to color in the postage stamp frame. The card is 4.25 x 5.50.

For once, I actually remembered to take a pic of the Copics I used before I put them all back. So just in case you’d like to know, here they are:
