A big congrats to Jill, the newest Featured Stamper (FS598) on Splitcoast! She has such a wonderful gallery & I chose THIS to case. I kept the sneakers theme but used different images, different colors & a different layout.

For my card, I put the row of chucks image into my Misti, stamped, colored then over stamped. I die cut it then put together 2 words from 2 different greetings to make my greeting. I stamped just the stars of the moon border onto opposite corners of the white bg & colored them in. Then I split the panel & added a black graph pattern paper behind it.

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

Thanks so much for stopping by!


Stamps: Serendipity Stamps –Tennis Shoes, Playing Card Sentiments, (inside:You Made My Day )
Paper:  Staples 110# white,  X-Press It white, black graph (Elegant Chic)
Ink:  Memento tuxedo black
Accessories: Misti, Copic markers, Lil’ Inker stitched rectangles

For the Inspiration Challenge, Stacy chose U.S. Mint Sheets. I’ve always had a thing for postage stamps & I have a good size collection of mostly used stamps. I just love the artwork on stamps! I chose a stamp that I actually have & I found it on the site, but since then, I guess they sold out & it doesn’t show up anymore but HERE it is.

My Tiffany lamp was gold embossed onto a polished stone bg I made using Copic refills, rubbing alcohol & a gold leaf marker. After embossing the lamp & the book, I fussy cut them & added them to a pine green layer w/ a long window cut out. I added a pale peach layer behind it & gold embossed the greeting. The little butterflies were punched out of some leftovers of the bg. Little strips of the green that I cut w/ postage stamp scissors were added around the green layer.

Here’s the inside:

For my Grilling card, I kept it fairly simple. After stamping & coloring the fun summer image, I die cut it. I had some designer paper that resembled graph paper & I die cut a piece of it & colored in random blocks. I thought it was a bit too much, so I made a narrow frame out of it & used it instead of the full piece.

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