Congrats to Laurie, the newest Featured Stamper (FS692) on Splitcoast! She has a very colorful & fun gallery & I chose THIS card to case. I kept the monster party theme  & balloons, but I used different images & dies & changed the layout.

For my monster birthday, after coloring & die cutting the colorful crew, I placed them in & out of a white frame & popped them up a bit. I did the same for the balloons, then stamped the birthday bg image in cranberry ink on the red bg. Just a touch of red was added to the bg balloons w/ a Prismacolor pencil.

Here are the Copics I used:

Thanks so much for stopping by!

A big congrats to Sally, the newest Featured Stamper (FS627) on Splitcoast! She has a fun, colorful gallery & after much browsing, I chose THIS to case. I liked the balloons so I kept those, but I used different images & dies, different colors & a little different layout.

My card is pretty easy…I colored & die cut the balloons w/ the matching die & used a stitched hills die to cut some leftover pieces of patterned paper for the opposing corners. I though it needed a little something, so I added a sun (made from a flower die), a couple of clouds & a few crystals.

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

The Free For All (F4A465) & Mixabilities (MIX312) Challenges are about Things that go Pop (my balloons) & the color Coral (2 of my balloons are coral). 

My card is pretty easy..I used a few heart die to cut a reverse mask & used it to generally outline the shape of the hearts then watercolored the inside of them. I drew the little strings w/ a white Posca pen & a lt gray marker then added the greeting & few punched silver glitter hearts.

Here’s a look at the inside.
