Howdy Star Shaker cu 09670
A big congrats to Donna, the newest Featured Stamper (FS498) on Splitcoast! I didn’t have to go far to find THIS card to case (copy & share everything). I kept the shaker card & most of the colors & layout, but I used different images, a star shaped shaker instead of a round one, & used a cowboy/southwest theme on mine.
Howdy Star Shaker 09665
For my star shaker, I started by stamping the cowboy/cowgirl accessories image, coloring w/ Copics, then I did a little into the window to keep from cutting off the top of the boots when I die cut the stitched star opening. I made a larger star shaped pouch out of a page protector, sealed the edges but leaving one edge open, filled it w/ sequins, stars & little punched cowboy boots, then sealed the remaining edge. After attaching the shaker pouch behind the opening, I added foam tape all behind the panel & attached it to another white back panel. A couple of narrow frames (one brown, one turquoise) were added behind it before attaching to the card. The Howdy was die cut & I used some of the same Copics to color it to match.

Here’s the inside & below it are the Copics I used. Howdy Star Shaker inside 09672

Baby Carriage 09718
To make my Baby Girl Carriage card, I stamped the sweet old fashioned carriage, colored w/ Copics, over stamped w/ Versafine then die cut w/ a double stitched square die. I had to do a little out of the box to keep from cutting off a couple of areas. A lime green mat was added & I attached to a piece of fun foam to elevate it a bit. The white layer was embossed & the Baby die was die cut once of the pink paisley paper & once out of white, which I colored to match, then stacked together a little offset. I tied a tiny little bow out of narrow pink ribbon & attached it to a die cut lime bow (from the Baby set dies) for my “fabric” addition.

Forget the Candy cu 09698
A big congrats to Amy, the newest Featured Stamper (FS497) on Splitcoast! She has a fun little gallery & I chose THIS card to case. I liked the cute martini instead of cake, so I kept that & the layout, but I used different images, different papers & made mine a Halloween card instead of a birthday card. Forget the Candy 09694
To make my Halloween martini, I stamped the martini image & colored it w/ Copics. I had to put 3 different greetings together to make my greeting. I added the little bat onto the olive pick & a spider web & spider in the left corner. Forget the Candy xcu09700
I used some leftover bits & strips of paper for the bottom section & did the little semi circle cut out like Amy did. A little Wink of Stella was added to the spider & Candy word…since the word strip of paper is glitter coated, I thought hint more of sparkle would fit right in.

Here’s a look at the inside & below are the Copics I used. Forget the Candy inside 09699
