A big congrats to Vicky, the newest Featured Stamper (FS546) on Splitcoaststampers!  After much browsing, I chose THIS card to case. I kept the girly theme & layout, but I used different images, changed the top section a little & used an embossing folder instead of designer paper.

I think this little Cowgirl   is just adorable!  After stamping & color her, I added the greeting beside her & colored it, too. Then I used just the sparkle element from the greeting I used on the inside & stamped it w/ lt pink & lt blue. I added the paisley embossed topper & I rubbed a white Prismacolor pencil over the high points to bring them out a bit. A little stickles  was added for the bling.

Here’s a look at the inside & below it are the Copics I used. 

Thanks so much for stopping by!

I love this pretty little Goldfinch! After stamping & coloring him (you can tell he’s a he, because the females are a dull olive green), I masked him then used a torn mask to cover the lower part of the layer & sponged on Distress inks on the top part. Just for fun, I splattered water across it then attached the die cut curved section w/ the Mini Scroll Heart cut out of it. I added back some of the parts you usually discard & sponged the part you usually save & added it to the inside (below). The greeting is two images combined on a little label shape.

Today’s Color Challenge (CC644) on Splitcoaststampers, is red, green & white with the dessert option of making a Christmas card. Got it covered! I’m also adding this to yesterday’s CAS438 Challenge (Christmas in July). 

To make my Christmas card, I had a little piece of die cut linen card stock that fit this little berry tree perfectly, so I used it to stamp & color the image. On the larger white layer, I stamped the little flourish image all over using the greens of a Kaleidacolor ink pad then added the green layer. For the greeting, I stamped just the word Christmas by using a green marker then added the red die cut Merry. 

Here’s the inside & below it are the Copic I used.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a great week!
