Have you checked out the Splitcoast Featured Stamper (FS288) yet? Jean (naturecoastcrafter) has a lovely gallery and I chose her Here Comes the Sun to case. I kept the horizontal layout and flowers and butterfly, but I changed the colors, the images and added some flourishes.

The images are from Our Daily Bread designs. The small flowers on the small layer are actually from a bookmark, but with a little masking, they work here, too. For the backgrounds, I sponged on colors from a Blue Breeze Kaleidacolor ink pad. Then I did a technique called Water Stamping that my friend Bev Gerard did a tutorial on this past week on Splitcoast. I love the soft, marbled look it gives. I stamped a portion of the same Daisy Background in black across the bottom. I like the way it helps “ground” everything. Just a few hightlights were added were a white gel pen. A sweet little Cheery Lynn flourish was added in the lower left corner and I used a Marianne Designs corner die in the upper right.  The butterfly was white embossed onto vellum,  sponged w/ the same blue inks and die cut using the matching die. The finished card is 5.50 x 4.25.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Congrats again to Jean!

Congrats to Kathy! Today’s Featured Stamper on Splitcoast (FS262)! I picked This to case. I kept the layout but I made mine a bday instead of Christmas, used different images and moved the ribbon.

The images are all from DRS Designs. I also used a technique from the Technique Junkies Dec 2011 newsletter   (you’ll have to be a TJ member to see it) called Curvy Borders for the black layer around the flowers. The flowers were stamped on w/c paper, colored w/ markers and cut out. I attached them to a white Spellbinders Mega Oval die cut and used the Curvy Borders technique w/ the Banner Basics 2 die cuts to frame it.

The black polka dots were black embossed down the side of the next panel and I added a red polka dot ribbon across the middle before attaching another of the Banner die cuts behind the right side. The sentiment is a partial of a much longer image and I used a SAMJ to position the words before black embossing and die cutting w/ a Spellbinders circle. The red button was dotted using a black Permapaque marker and the finished card is 4.25 x 5.50.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

I’m using some pretty spring images and colors for my card today. The colors in this dp are my favorite colors so I matched the colors in my images to them. The vase and flowers were cut out and added on top of some white c/s that I stamped the dots in two different colors. First I inked and stamped w/ the lime ink, then inked w/ the neptune and used a SAMJ to align the second stamping in an alternate row. A lg corner rounder was used on the two right corners. The scallop scissors didn’t match up exactly w/ the scallop border, but I think it looks fine as is. The finished card is 4.25 x 5.50.
Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope you’ll join us in our Monday Challenge and please visit all the Outlines Design Team for details on their creations.
