Congrats to Linda Callahan aka abbysmom2198, the Featured Stamper (FS273) on Splitcoast! Since there is an extra Sunday, this April, I’m hosting again. And I’m sure you’ll love Linda’s clean style, fun layouts and wonderful color combos. I know I do!

For my case, I chose Linda’s For You card. The super layout and bright colors really grabbed me so I kept those. I changed the images (these are a sneak peek from Our Daily Bread designs), used different ribbon, used an embossing folder on the peach circles and did the right edge a little differently.

I stamped the beach scene several times, colored with markers and used several different sizes of Spellbinders circle die to cut them out without embossing them. The sentiment was stamped on some green dp (designer paper) and the peach was some I had left over and it already had the mesh (reverse side) texture embossed on it. I went around the edges with a white Permapaque marker to make them stand out a bit more then arranged them and popped a few of them up. The edge is a white strip die cut with a scallop border with a narrow strip of the green dp on top. I added the crystals and ribbon and the finished card is  4.25 x 5.50.

Thanks so much for looking!

Today’s Technique Lover’s Challenge ( TLC374) is a real challenge! Holly really knows how to put a crimp in my style, lol. In one fell swoop, she took out half of my stamping arsenal! I really love my dies and embossing folders. But it’s good to get back to the basics now and again.

This also is very CAS (clean & simple) which is also out of character for me. I’m also combining it with yesterday’s Featured Stamper challenge (FS272) and once again, I cased Karen’s Rainbow Branches. I really love that card! I kept the rainbow, similar layout and CAS design, but I changed images, added a ribbon and some scoring. The images are Our Daily Bread designs.

So for my CAS card, I used a couple of rainbow ink pads I’ve had since time began. For the sentiment, I added an eyelet and ran some ribbon through it. (Holly said we could use eyelets and 1 ribbon!). The bottom part was scored w/ a bone folder so old it’s actually kind of formed to the shape of my hand, lol. Nothing new (except the stamps) or fancy here…just back to the basics!

Karen Haman’s tha man! Better known as kthaman and she’s the Featured Stamper on Splitcoast (FS272)!

She has such a fabulous, extensive gallery and I couldn’t pick just one. So this first card is based on her Rain or Shine. I kept the layout but used a die cut, different sentiment and different colors. The sentiment is from Darcie’s Sparkle set. The chandelier is a Quickutz die. The sentiment panel and lampshades are made of white vellum and I added some score lines down the sides of the sentiment  and some embossed dots on the lampshades. The little candle flames were die cut in white and color added w/ markers. The finished card is 4.25 x 5.50.

My second card is based on Karen’s Rainbow Branches. I used a similar layout and kept the fabulous rainbow of colors, but used different images and added an embossing folder.

The images are all from DRS Designs.   I loved her rainbow colors so I colored all the candles differently then die cut the label (this image is also wonderful on the front of an envelope) using a resized Spellbinders rectangle die. I did the same for the orchid layer behind it as well as the sentiment tags inside the frame. The background was embossed with a big dot folder and I added three cut out candles at the bottom.

Stamps: DRS Designs – Birthday Candle Address Frame, Single Birthday Candle, So Many Candles
Paper: Neenah white, orchid
Ink: Ancient Page coal
Accessories: Tombow markers, Spellbinders rectangles & tag dies, Cuttlebug lg dot embossing folder (from the Welcome Baby combo set)
