I made this for today’s Sketch Challenge (SC421) and yesterday’s Color Challenge (CC411) on Splitcoast. The sketch is right up my alley…clean and orderly. And the colors are some of my all time favorite colors. A real win-win!!

This is also a sneak peek of new images coming Friday, Feb 1st from Our Daily Bread designs.  My card is pretty easy to figure out…the flowers were stamped w/ the black ink, colored w/ Copics and die cut it w/ a Spellbinders rectangle die.  The greeting was stamped on the 4.25 x 5.50 card front and some layers of designer paper and solid paper were added from my long panel. The pennants were also die cut and I added some baker’s twine and blue button.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Congrats to Bonnie (bon2stamp), the Featured Stamper on Splitcoast (FS312)! What a wonderful gallery she has! I spent quite a long time strolling her gallery and finally chose her Not Just for Valentines to case. I kept the layout and use of silhouette image, but I used different images, added some color and in place of the embossed background, I opted to use a leftover strip of card stock I made using dry wall mesh and white acrylic paint.  I made this ages ago for the TLC235 challenge…Painted Grid.

The images are from Our Daily Bread designs. I sponged the color on a piece of white card stock using a couple of Kaleidacolor ink pads, then stamped the Bird & Butterfly Label in one area and the Little Boy in another. I used a Spellbinders Labels 18 for the label and larger black layer and I hand cut the little boy and added him on top.

The strip of painted grid was added across the top layer of my 5.50 x 4.25 card, then a black layer before attaching to the card front.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Congrats again, Bonnie, and enjoy your week!

For today’s Technique Challenge on Splitcoast (TLC413), the focus is on the dies. I think I have just the CAS (clean & simple) card that will fit. Turns out the only heart dies I have are these huge solid and LaRue heart from Memory Box. They pretty much take up the whole card so they have to be the focus. I thought they went well w/ this cute Love You More greeting from DRS Designs. I added a couple of little hearts from the Interlocking Hearts Background beside it.  I colored and cut out just the bloom from the Single Rose and attached it in the upper left. I used a pair of mini scallop scissors across the bottom of the red panel and attached it to my 4.25 x 5.50 card.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
