A big congrats to Diana, the newest Featured Stamper (FS636) on Splitcoast! She has a really wonderful, fun gallery & I chose THIS to case. I really liked the kraft bg & the little butterfly, so I kept those. But I used different images, turned mine vertical & added an embossed border.

For my CAS card, I stamped the flowers w/ Versaclair then added the white dots w/ a Posca paint pen & a little red dot for the center. On the butterfly, I used a white Prismacolor pencil. I stamped all but the Wishes part of the greeting, then substituted the Wishes die cut in its place.

Here’s the inside.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

It’s my turn & my pleasure to host the Splitcoast Inspiration Challenge this week! And we’re headed to the V&A (Victoria & Albert) Museum. There are so many wonderful things to see there & after much browsing, I chose THIS for my inspiration. 

For my butterflies, after stamping a coloring, they were die cut w/ their matching dies. I used a white paint pen to add the dots on the wings & outlined them w/ a black pen.  I came across just a strip of polished stone background I made a long time ago & thought it looked good w/ the color in the butterflies. I die cut it w/ a flag die, using my Resizing Technique to lengthen the flag. The greeting was added in the corner & some sequins for a little sparkle.

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

For the Inspiration Challenge, Stacy chose U.S. Mint Sheets. I’ve always had a thing for postage stamps & I have a good size collection of mostly used stamps. I just love the artwork on stamps! I chose a stamp that I actually have & I found it on the site, but since then, I guess they sold out & it doesn’t show up anymore but HERE it is.

My Tiffany lamp was gold embossed onto a polished stone bg I made using Copic refills, rubbing alcohol & a gold leaf marker. After embossing the lamp & the book, I fussy cut them & added them to a pine green layer w/ a long window cut out. I added a pale peach layer behind it & gold embossed the greeting. The little butterflies were punched out of some leftovers of the bg. Little strips of the green that I cut w/ postage stamp scissors were added around the green layer.
