A big congrats to Aimeslee, the newest Featured Stamper (FS746) on Splitcoast. She has a lovely gallery & I chose THIS card to case. I kept the layout (for the most part) & the embossed bg, but I used different dies, colors & a different embossing folder. 

For my Father’s Day card, I started by die cutting all the tool in red & mirror silver then putting them together. The jeans pocket & bg are some really old dp I had & it was a little too gray, so I sponged on some blue ink. For the pocket, I cut it first w/ a stitched square then took an angled border die across the bottom. I used a gold gel pen to create the “thread” stitching & added a piece of cardboard under the pocket & tucked the tools inside. The measuring tape is a piece of twill ribbon that I used a red Copic to color. The silver bg was embossed w/ a metal plate folder & I used a dk gray Copic to add some antiquing to it.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

It’s my pleasure to host the Splitcoast Featured Stamper Challenge (FS745) this week, so a big congrats to Robyn! She has a lovely gallery & I chose THIS card to case. I kept the big purple blooms, but used different images & dies, & changed the layout a bit. 

For my card, I used a lovely, clear layering flower set & started w/ a lt rose colored ink on the solid (1st) layer. Since it was in my Misti, I stamped it again using the lightest purple ink w/ a touch of medium blue around the edges. Then I lined up the 2nd layer & stamped it w/ a darker purple & used a bit of darker blue in the shadow areas. The final layer was stamped using the next to darkest purple w/ some dark blue in the shadow areas. I like mixing up the colors to give it more depth. The leaves were done in 2 colors of green then they were die cut w/ their matching dies. I used a narrow layer of textured dk green down the left side & the narrow purple strip on the right was sponged w/ the purple inks in order to match the flower.

For the Splitcoast Inspiration Challenge (IC806), we’re headed to a watercolor Pinterest Board where I found THIS lovely portrait. I don’t have a child’s face image so I used Jacqueline, instead.

I put a piece of watercolor paper into my Misti & stamped her w/ Morning Mist versaclair ink..it’s a dk grey so it’s not as high contrast as black. I used some soft teal & soft peach watercolors & a lot of water to paint the panel. I didn’t even mix the color..it was some that was left over in my palette & I liked the colors. When it dried, I stamped the greeting across the left bottom corner & used a pen to add the XOXO. In my head, I saw it as a stylized glamor portrait that the sender would autograph.
