Button Baby cu 05773
A big congrats to Becky, the newest Featured Stamper on Splitcoast (FS421)! She has a fun, colorful gallery and it was hard to pick, but I kept coming back to THIS card. I even started out to use a horse silhouette, but mine was a bit too small so I changed it to a baby giraffe & then changed the stars to buttons. I also changed it to a baby card & added some die cut lace & piercing.

Button Baby 05772
My card is pretty simple…mostly die cuts. The baby giraffe was stamped on kraft & I added just a bit of shading with a white Prismacolor pencil. The inside edge of the circle die was traced w/ a black Sharpie then I used the same die to cut it, added some piercing & added a white scallop circle  die cut behind it. The large kraft panel was die cut across the bottom w/ a scallop die then more piercing all around. The white crochet lace was also die cut & added beneath it. I used a border piercing die to just emboss the front of the white card. Some kraft & white buttons were die cut, twine tied through them & added in the scallops.

Congrats again, Becky! Thanks so much for stopping by!

Birthday Butterflies Doily 04599
Today is a bittersweet day. We (the Featured Stamper Hostesses) are having to say goodbye to one of our own…Bridget Finlay. We are sad she is leaving, but we understand that Bridget has an important mission. 

For this card, I chose THIS card of Bridget’s. I really love the contrast of the turquoise & peach and her perfect layout, so I kept those. For me, the real challenge of caseing Bridget is I don’t want to change a thing! But change I must, so I used different images, a doily die cut instead of the heart and I used a stamped, die cut butterfly instead of the punched one Bridget used. 

I started with a die cut white panel, attached some drywall mesh and sponged on the tumbled glass ink in a random rather than solid manner, then added a little splatter w/ the same ink & a water brush. After die cutting the doily w/ peach, I cut it apart & reassembled it a little smaller to fit the area. The big butterfly was stamped on dp & die cut. I really loved the shiny little teal leaf embellies Bridget used, so I made mine out of aluminum foil glued to c/s, colored w/ Copics and die cut. For the flower, I used a Prima on top and punched a larger one to go underneath.

To make the greeting, I die cut the letters out of turquoise twice, stacked them on top of each for dimension & glued them in an up/down manner to mimic the wonderful die Bridget used. The pretty little flower on top of the big butterfly was a gift from my sweet friend, Sabrina

Sew Special Day 04606
For my card, I cased THIS card of Bridget’s. I just love the bright colors and spools of thread. So I kept those, but I used different images/dies and made my own backgrounds.

Sew Specail Day cu 04611
The big solid doily image was stamped w/ the yellow ink on the large bg and partials of it were stamped w/ the other ink colors on the side strip. The little thread spools were stamped, colored & die cut & on two of them I trimmed away the measuring tape. After stamping the 2 greetings, I pierced around the edge, added a punched button border & some colorful buttons. These are the Copics I used.

Beehive 03159
Another congrats to Nancy, the newest Featured Stamper (FS387)! Such a wonderful gallery and I had my eye on THIS card of Nancy’s. I kept the cute bee theme and colors, but I used different images, a different layout and omitted the sequins and banners.

After stamping the hive, bees & two greetings, I colored them with Copics and die cut the right edge then edged the whole panel with a bright yellow Permapaque marker. I stamped the honeycomb a few times down the right side of a black panel using white ink then added some small punched yellow circles in the center. I stamped one extra honeycomb, cut it out and added a little yellow button in the center. These are the Copics I used to color everything.
