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:

I’m back again today w/ another card! This time I made it for the Splitcoast VSN challenge, red white & blue JUN13VSND. I love patriotic and military themed cards. While this may look like it has a lot going on, it was quick and pretty easy. I didn’t color anything and the background is a piece of designer paper. I didn’t even tie a bow…just looped some ribbon. I did do a little out of the box on the eagle but I do it so frequently, I could probably do it in my sleep. There’s just a hint of color inside the die cut edges, but that’s it. The finished card is 4.25 x 5.50.

Paper: vanilla, navy blue, dp (unknown -it just says Vintage Military)
