For the Ways to Use It Challenge on Splitcoast (WT469) we are Going Green…using the color green! Since it’s my favorite color, it’s perfect for me and for my St. Paddy’s Day cards.

On my first card, it’s pretty simple, and really only one layer. The hat full of shamrocks, greeting, shamrock border and shamrock corner were all stamped on the same layer and colored with Copics. I trimmed around the edge of the shamrock border and added a narrow strip of green behind it before attaching to my card front. The finished card is 4.25 x 5.50 and these are the Copics I used.

On my second St. Paddy’s Day card, the leprechaun scene was stamped, colored with Copics and I added a rusty brown frame with a large scallop oval cut out around it. I just loved coloring the toadstools these funky colors! The greeting was stamped on the frame and a couple of toadstools and shamrocks were colored, fussy cut and added on top. The finished card is 5.50 x 4.25 and these are the Copics I used.

Today we are revisiting the North Coast Creations February release! And such a beautiful release it is! If you love flowers and beautiful greetings, these sets are definitely for you!

I’m using the Floral Sentiments 6  for my card. Technically, the image is a hydrangea, but except for the leaves, it looks a lot like a geranium. So I stamped it 3 times, colored with Copics and fussy cut, making sure to trim off the leaves. I love geraniums so I have 3 sizes of geranium leaf punches and I used those for the new leaves. After punching the leaves out of green card stock, I added some color to mimic real leaves and some “vein” lines with a stylus. The greeting was stamped on a large leaf and I added a couple of stamped & die cut bees (Our Daily Bread designs  Zinnia ODBD Zinnia dies) and a die cut white background (ODBD Daisy Chain Bg die). I used a curved border die on the white & green backgrounds and attached them to a piece of the beautiful ODBD Blooming Garden collection paper, The finished card is 4.25 x 5.50 and these are the Copics I used for my geraniums.

Welcome to  the March challenge for  Serendipity Stamps!  We’re switching things up a bit in 2014…The challenges will now be MONTHLY so you have longer to play. The design team will still provide inspiration twice a month (every other Wednesday), but you will have the whole month to play along! The Serendipity Challenge this month is In Stictches (use faux, real, stamped.)  And for the Design Team, we’ve added the twist of using a vehicle (bike, boat, plane, train). You can find all the details on how to play along with us at the Serendipity Stamps Challenge Blog. With each challenge we always have a gift certificate up for grabs to a random player. The special this week is 20% off Easter category images. Good through March 12, 2014.

For my vehicle card, I chose this fun tandem bicycle image and made it into a little scene by combining it with the mailboxes image. I stamped the bicycle first, masked it and stamped the mailboxes. I stamped just the grassy/flower portion of the mailbox image a time or two more to add the grass around the bicycle. The little flower bouquet (from the bicycle set) was stamped separately and I cut a slit in the basket to insert it. I used a paper piercer to add the “stitching holes” across the top and bottom and also around the greeting. I used a small corner rounder on one end of the greeting and a maroon Micron pen to add the faux stitches. The finished card is 5.50 x 4.25 and these are the Copics I used to color everything. I know, seems like a lot of colors, but there you go. And the only reason G20 (wax white) is in there is because YG11 (mignonette) was running low and I didn’t want to stop to refill it, lol.
