Congrats to Angela, the Featured Stamper on Splitcoast (FS311)! What a wonderful gallery she has! I chose her Have a Blast card to case. I kept the fun star theme and most of the colors, but used different images and turned mine into an angled trifold card.

The images are from DRS Designs. The little cowboy was colored w/ Copics and I used the Out of the Box Nestie technique to die cut it. It’s attached to a larger Labels 8 with the sentiment stamped on either side.

For the card, I took a 5.50 x 12 piece  of card stock (I actually used a piece of tag board because it comes in a 9 x 12 size) and scored it at the 4 and 8 inch marks. Then I cut an angle from left to right and attached a whole bunch of punched and die cut stars across the angled top. I attached some on both sides of the middle section since one side shows when open and the other side shows when closed. I also stamped the stars (before I attached them) with a background stamp called Material Maker Square. When you stamp it, turn the image 45 degrees or more, and stamp again,  I love how it resembles denim. I also used this same image around the card edge to make a border.

Congrats again, Angela! Enjoy your week! Thanks so much for stopping by!

Weekly-Favorite A big CONGRATS to Lynn (aka allee’s), the Featured Stamper on Splitcoast (FS310)!! This is well deserved and a long time coming! Lynn is a big participant in the daily challenges and a gallery favorite. Y’all will love her big, fabulous gallery. For my card, I chose THIS wonderful card of Lynn’s to case.  I love the masked strip and silhouette image so I kept those. I changed the images, added a horizontal sponged line (because it looked like my little boy was sitting on top of the water) and added an extra layer. I rarely work on the card front…for me, that’s just asking for trouble. Yeah, like I need more trouble, lol.

The images are all from Our Daily Bread designs. The silhouette and greeting are new, from a set called Little Boys. The large cattails are from the With Heartfelt Sympathy set. To begin, I masked the sides and sky are of the strip and sponged ink from the blue rainbow ink pad. Then I removed the sky mask and placed it over the water and sponged in the sun and sky using the birthstone & desert heat rainbow ink pads. After removing all the masks, that’s when I discovered my little boy looked like he was sitting on the water, lol. So I masked the sky again and sponged a green horizontal line using the fresh greens ink pad. After adding the sentiment, lg cattails and black layer my 4.25 x 5.50 card was finished.

Congrats again, Lynn, enjoy your week!

Thanks so much for stopping by!

For my birthday card, I used the new Special Boy set. I figured this set was about as masculine as they get and works well for big boys as well as little boys. I made the background for the largest layer and truck image by swiping various colors of Copic markers across a piece of vanilla card stock. Then the truck image and tire tracks were stamped on top of these using the dk brown chalk ink. I fussy cut the truck and attached it to a deckled rectangle of vanilla to give it a bit of separation. The metallic bronze layer was embossed w/ a Sizzix folder and the sentiment was die cut and attached to a leftover strip of the background with small bronze brads. Since I wanted to have crossed checkered flags, I stamped one as usual and stamped one again on the plastic sheet of my SAMJ (stamp-a-ma-jig) then quickly pressed a piece of vanilla c/s on top to get the reverse image.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Happy Birthday, Rick!

This is also for the Sketch Challenge (SC418) on Splitcoast today. As usual, I rearranged it a bit and turned it on its side.
