This is for the 2 Monday Challenges on Splitcoast…CAS527 (humor) & TLC736 (acrylic block stamping). 

For my acrylic block stamped bg, I pressed the Kpad onto the block & spritzed w/ water. I thought it needed a little contrast, so I added a narrow black frame, then used my Misti to stamp the solid branch a few times. The greeting is a put together mix of 2 greetings. For the silly bird image, I drew the stripes then colored & fussy cut. Since this bird looks pretty rotund to me, I thought the greeting fit. I also contend his/her butt makes him/her look big..not the stripes, lol.

Here’s the inside & below it the Copics I used on the silly bird.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Congrats to the newest Featured Stamper on Splitcoast (FS634)! I chose THIS to case. I kept the layout & the greeting in the center, but I used a different greeting & made my background instead of using designer paper.
I stamped the pretty feathers, colored them & fussy cut them. The  greeting was stamped on a fancy label & attached to a larger, dk green panel. For the bg, I brayered the inside of a feather embossing folder then embossed a piece of a white card stock. I actually did both sides..the other side was mostly white w/ colored feathers. I liked this side better, so there you go.

Here’s a look at the inside.

It’s my pleasure to host the Splitcoast Featured Stamper Challenge (FS632) this week! A big congrats to Liz, the newest Featured Stamper! She has such a fun gallery & after much browsing, I chose THIS to case. I kept most of the layout w/ the wide white frame, but I used different images & colors & made mine a sympathy card.

For my CAS sympathy card, I found a piece of paper I hand marbled ages ago. It was in oranges & pinks w/ a dk blue vein running thru it & I copied it onto a piece of neon pink paper. I stamped the birds on the branch directly onto this using very dark navy ink. I used a white gel pen to add highlights then added a white frame & a navy diamond cut frame. 

Here’s the inside.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
