Birthday Butterflies Doily 04599
Today is a bittersweet day. We (the Featured Stamper Hostesses) are having to say goodbye to one of our own…Bridget Finlay. We are sad she is leaving, but we understand that Bridget has an important mission. 

For this card, I chose THIS card of Bridget’s. I really love the contrast of the turquoise & peach and her perfect layout, so I kept those. For me, the real challenge of caseing Bridget is I don’t want to change a thing! But change I must, so I used different images, a doily die cut instead of the heart and I used a stamped, die cut butterfly instead of the punched one Bridget used. 

I started with a die cut white panel, attached some drywall mesh and sponged on the tumbled glass ink in a random rather than solid manner, then added a little splatter w/ the same ink & a water brush. After die cutting the doily w/ peach, I cut it apart & reassembled it a little smaller to fit the area. The big butterfly was stamped on dp & die cut. I really loved the shiny little teal leaf embellies Bridget used, so I made mine out of aluminum foil glued to c/s, colored w/ Copics and die cut. For the flower, I used a Prima on top and punched a larger one to go underneath.

To make the greeting, I die cut the letters out of turquoise twice, stacked them on top of each for dimension & glued them in an up/down manner to mimic the wonderful die Bridget used. The pretty little flower on top of the big butterfly was a gift from my sweet friend, Sabrina

Sew Special Day 04606
For my card, I cased THIS card of Bridget’s. I just love the bright colors and spools of thread. So I kept those, but I used different images/dies and made my own backgrounds.

The big solid doily image was stamped w/ the yellow ink on the large bg and partials of it were stamped w/ the other ink colors on the side strip. The little thread spools were stamped, colored & die cut & on two of them I trimmed away the measuring tape. After stamping the 2 greetings, I pierced around the edge, added a punched button border & some colorful buttons. These are the Copics I used.

Halloween Curtains 04520
Weekly-Favorite
What a super  Inspiration Challenge (IC459) today on Splitcoast! Be inspired by Kittie! I’m always inspired by Kittie! And I’ve really enjoyed getting to know her. For my card, I was inspired by THIS wonderful Halloween card she made. And as homage to Kittie, I included a window. 

I die cut the decorative window out of black and attached a sort of spooky looking sky behind the top that I made with Copics. I had a fun Jackolantern that I had apparently colored & fussy cut at some earlier date & I thought he looked good in the window except that he didn’t show up very well against that orange sky. So I trimmed down the black window insets, stamped the spider web on them, then added them to white insets & placed them inside the window frame. The curtains were made w/ some wide webby ribbon I had & I used the star brads as tie backs. 

Thanks so much for stopping by!
