It’s my turn to host the Splitcoast Featured Stamper Challenge (FS608) & I chose Chrissy, aka DanceswithHooves. She has a lovely gallery & I chose THIS card to case. I kept most of the layout but ended up changing most everything else. Different stamps, dies & colors. 
My card started with a leftover background & already colored image (you can see the other one on THIS post). As I’ve probably mentioned, I apparently save everything, lol. I stamped the other little telephone multiple times across the leftover background then used a zigzag border die to cut the bottom & add the black piece. Since most everything else was already made, this was a really quick card. 

Here’s a look at the inside & if you want the Copics I used, please click on the referenced green link above. Good thing I had that way I would have remembered what I used. And sadly, I think all of these images are discontinued but you can see the sets below.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

For today’s Featured Stamper (FS285), on this first card, I chose Sophie’s Bridal Shower Hearts. I just love the little falling hearts, so I kept them along with the CAS layout, but changed the images and shape of the main panels from squares to ovals.

The images are from Avocado Arts. I picked them up at a convention a couple of weeks ago where I met up w/ friends, Sandee (stampersandee) & Penny (Pawallen). (Hi Sandee, hi Penny!!) The finished card is 4.25 x 5.50 and is pretty CAS. The lampshade was paper pieced from some long hoarded Basic Grey Sultry paper. You know years ago when I first joined Splitcoast, I noticed I had the moniker “Cardstock Collector” under my name. I was floored!! How did they know?? Really, I looked over my shoulder! Not much has changed, lol. I still collect!


Stamps: Avocado Arts
Paper: Neenah white, dp (Basic Grey – Sultry collection)
Ink: Ancient Page chocolate, Memento angel pink, Colorbox rouge chalk ink
Accessories: stickles, Spellbinders mega oval & scallop mega oval dies, epoxy sticker, 1/2 inch circle punch

For my second card, I chose Sophie’s Hello Pink Flowers to case. I kept the flower theme and general layout, but changed the images, colors and turned it on its side.

The images are from DRS Designs and the background was done with a masking/reverse masking using a Cheery Lynn sunflower die and a Spellbinders circle die and sponging on the colors. I had a little white frame left over from something and arranged my flowers in and out of the frame. A little stickles was added to the flower center and the finished card is 5.50 x 4.25.
