A big Congrats to Karen, the newest Featured Stamper (FS701) on Splitcoast! She has such a fun, colorful gallery & I chose THIS to case. I kept the triple image areas & slimline layout, but used different images, colors & dies.

I’m having a lot of fun w/ these new slimline dies & especially this triple panel scallop die. So many possibilities for it. On this card, I used a cute set of bunny, bear & stars. I used a moon die instead of the moon image because the image was just too big to fit inside the center panel. I added the blue inset panel behind it & a couple of narrow blue shelves below the bunny & bear.

Here are the Copic colors I used:

Fun site for the Splitcoast Inspiration Challenge (IC758)! I was inspired by THIS picture.

For my scene, I stamped & colored the lady & her guide dog & stamped the greeting along side. It just looked too empty & I couldn’t find anything I wanted to put behind her. So I used a pencil to sketch the little buildings & then a few grey Copics to color them in. Just a side note: in case you ever use a pencil then color in w/ Copics, be aware that if you color over your pencil line, you will not be able to erase it. It didn’t matter since I used greys, but it might matter if you use other light colors. Apparently the Copic (or any other alcohol based marker) makes the pencil permanent. So there’s your tip of the week!

 

Since my main panel is a square, I needed something to fill in the rectangle of the card front. I used a gray layer & cut the side angle, then stamped one section of the plaid (stripe) bg in gray ink. 
Here are the Copics I used:

For my 3rd week as a Guest Designer for the Color Challenge (CC775), we have a lavender, purple & mint green color combo w/ the dessert option of making a winter card. Since it’s been below freezing all day here & lows in the mid teens, I think it feels pretty much like this poor bear & his little bird friend look. 

After coloring the bear in the tree, I added the cute little bird (from another winter image) on one of the branches. It was good thing the SU neutrals are allowed, because I made liberal use of the browns, grays & merlot colors! For the bg, I die cut some stitched hills out of scratch paper & used them to sponge in the snow hills & purple/lavender sky. 

After it was sponged, I dry embossed it w/ a snowfall folder & added stickles to the snow. I used the purple inks to sponge the greeting die cut.

Here are the Copics I used, You can see by all the different greens & blue greens, I had to work to get that mint color for the hat & scarf. The purple shades were used just on the bg of the image circle. I didn’t feel like cutting a mask, lol, so I just used the Copics to mimic the sponging I did on the lg background.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
