It’s my turn & my pleasure to host the Splitcoast Featured Stamper Challenge. A big congrats to Kerry! She has such a beautiful gallery & I chose THIS to case. I had the same cute little row of houses stamp, so I used that & kept most of the layout. But I used different colors, left off the bow & made mine a summer card instead of Christmas.

After die cutting the large circle, I hunted around for some paper to stamp the houses onto & came across a scrap of a hand marbled piece & I liked the color, so there you go. I fussy cut them & popped them up a bit. The trees were stamped, colored & cut w/ matching dies & the greeting is a rearranged version of the original greeting (Beautiful Day),  plus I penned in 2 of the letters to complete it. I added a little sand at the bottom w/ a splatter image then cut the pieces of beach themed paper for the bg.

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

Thanks so much for stopping by!

A big congrats to Vicki, the newest Featured Stamper! She has such a fab gallery & always leaves the sweetest comments. After much browsing, I chose THIS to case. I kept the gold embossed tree & Christmas theme but used different images & different dies. Also as a nod to her living in Hawaii, I used a beach shells tropical themed tree.

I gold embossed the image on some confetti sand card stock then I added just a touch of color w/ some Prismacolor pencils. On the darker sand c/s, I gold embossed the Splatter Bg on the lower section then used a curved die to cut the lower part of the tree layer. The new greeting was also gold embossed & die cut w/ a circle die. I added some gold thread tied in a bow just under the top of it.

Here’s a look at the inside.

I’ve fallen a little behind on my posting & here are 2 cards I made for Dare to Get Dirty Challenges & also the Inspiration & Featured Stamper Challenges. For all the details of the DTGD challenges, go HERE…but you’ll need to be a Fan Club member.  

This first one was for the Inspiration Challenge (IC662) &.THIS & THIS were my inspirations. I loved the palm trees in the first, and the colors in the second. And, I used a technique from TLC698, gel plate impressionism. Basically, you put a gel plate into your Misti, ink it up w/ Distress oxide inks, mist w/ alcohol (the rubbing kind, lol), stamp your image on top w/ dye ink, then place your card stock on top of the gel plate. So that’s what I did. The colors move around & mix a bit & the silhouette isn’t quite as sharp as it would be, but the overall look is pretty nice. After it dried, I added the seagulls & a little white highlighting on the palms. Here’s the inside.

Supplies:

Stamps: DRS Designs –  Palm Tree Line Seaside Dock Sending Sunshine (inside: Sun Shine On You )
Paper: Staples 110# white 
Ink: Distress oxide inks  peacock feathers, squeezed lemonade, worn lipstick, cracked pistachio, Memento tuxedo black 
Accessories:  Misti, Lil’ Inker stitched rectangle dies, Gelli plate, white gel pen


This card was for the Featured Stamper Challenge (FS601). I chose THIS to case. I kept the cactus in the desert theme, but I used different images, different colors & added a greeting. I also got a kick out of Beth’s description of her card.

To make my desert scene, I stamped the Cowboy Cactus, masked it, then stamped the Broken Flower Fence around it. Makes it kind of look like the cowboys are out fixing the fence & left a hat & rope on the cactus. After coloring everything, I die cut it w/ a wonky stitched rectangle then added some clouds & a sunflower for the sun rays. The greeting is part of the Western Word Square & I used a wonky circle die to cut it. Here’s the inside & next to it are the Copics I used.
