A big congrats to Angie, the newest Featured Stamper (FS635) on Splitcoast! She has a beautiful gallery & I chose THIS to case, mainly because I have the same image. Since I did use the same image, I changed most everything else..the colors, dies & layout.

My card started with a Brusho background I made ages ago. It’s sort of how I imagine deep space would look & thought it would look good behind this happy little girl, who’s in her own little world, blissfully swinging from a star. Remember that feeling, as if you’re flying? I put her in my Misti, stamped, colored her w/ Copics then overstamped her. I stamped the greeting on a circle die cut & added a narrow frame. The stars were die cut out of white glitter paper.

Below is the inside, using leftovers from the front & next to it are the Copics I used.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Supplies:

Stamps: Unity – Happiness Is

For the Splitcoast Inspiration Challenge (IC658), we are to chose a souvenir from our state or country. So I chose my home state of Texas since I have stamps for that state. And as everyone knows, Texans are pretty proud of their state. Remember the old saying...”Don’t ask a man if he’s from Texas. If he is, he’ll tell you. If he’s not, you’ll just embarrass him.” I was inspired by THIS postcard depicting the town where I grew up..though I was a little disappointed they spelled it wrong  😕 

To make my Corpus Christi (aka: Sparkling City by the Sea) skyline card, I made a bg w/ Brushos then die cut the silhouette skyline. I used another skyline die that had a bridge (because Corpus has the big Bay Bridge) & added a piece of it to the right side. I also die cut the moon & stars & the Stars word to insert it into the greeting. The inside of the card has the “Deep in the Heart of Texas” part. Now all you fellow Texans (& a few who want to be, lol) will be singing that song. You’re welcome!! 


Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a great weekend, y’all!

To make my summer lighthouse card, I used a small piece of a Brushos watercolor background I had in my stash. After die cutting the white rectangle, I also die cut a large oval & placed the watercolor bg behind it. The Lighthouse was die cut once out of white & once out of royal blue & pieced together. The little windows were colored w/ a couple of yellow Copics. The Summer & lower part of the hello tag were also die cut twice each & stacked. I used the clouds from the Hot Air Balloon Reverse die & also a larger cloud on top of the Hello. I had the die cut frame leftover from something else, so I sponged on similar colors & added it behind the white layer.

Here’s a look at the inside. I left it blank for now, until I decide who it’s going to.
