Blue Umbrella 03085
A big Congrats to Penny, the newest Featured Stamper (FS372) on Splitcoast! What a fabulous gallery she has! There are a lot I picked to Case and for my Blue Umbrella card I chose THIS card. I kept the long oval frame but made it narrower, kept the blue flowers but made mine a shower card instead of sympathy and I used an inked/embossed panel for my background.  Blue Umbrella cu 03084
I started by inking an embossing folder w/ several blue & lavender distress inks then embossed a white panel. I added a bit more color w/ a lt blue Copic & used a dk blue for the centers. A few little flowers were stamped around the white frame & few more were fussy cut to add on top. The umbrella was stamped twice, colored w/ several blue Copics & I used a stylus on one to add some depth then attached it on top of the other umbrella w/ foam tape.

Congrats again, Penny..enjoy your week! Thanks so much for stopping by!

Today we are taking another look at the Our Daily Bread designs March release! And what a wonderful release it is!

For my card, I stamped the hive, bees and greeting with indigo ink and added a little yellow with some Tombow markers. The indigo ink is not compatible with Copics so I had to use a water based marker. I die cut with a rectangle and edged it with a yellow Permapaque marker. The greeting was done the same way and I used the Tombow marker to add the yellow to the letters. The honeycomb background was stamped first with the lemonade ink then only along the left edge with indigo ink. The right side was die cut and also edged w/ the Permapaque marker. The navy bg was embossed and the little bees were die cut w/ the matching die from the Zinnia die set. I wanted one bee facing the opposite direction, so I cut the legs off so it wouldn’t look like he was flying upside down, lol. The finished card is 5.50 x 4.25 and these are the beautiful sets I used:

The Ways to Use It Challenge (WT471) theme today is Button It Up! I seem to be using a lot of buttons lately so this is perfect. For my Easter card,  I decided ahead of time that I only wanted a partial circle around the big bunny face, so I stamped him close to the edge & the egg 3 times across the bottom & colored them. After die cutting him w/ a circle die,  I used a larger circle to cut more out of the white panel and attached both to a yellow panel and then to my 4.25 x 5.50 card. The greeting flag was hand cut & I used a white permapaque marker to add white dots to the eggs & also to the buttons.

These are the Copics I used to color everything.
