A big congrats to Jen, the newest Featured Stamper (FS731) at Splitcoast! She has a wonderful gallery & I chose THIS card to case. I liked the 3 little tags w/ images on them, so I kept that. But I used different images, dies & colors, & turned the layout to vertical.

Don’t forget to check out the Rubbernecker Stamps Birthday Giveaway! (Click the pic below to take you there!)


For my card, I came across this leftover bg piece that I had made ages ago. I love how bright & festive it is & thought it would be perfect w/ these 3 candles. The bg was done by inking the inside of the birthday embossing folder w/ a rainbow ink pad, then embossing it. I colored the candles to go w/ this bg, die cut them then added them to the 3 die cut tags. I wanted a little more separation between them & the bg so I die cut a wide-ish frame to go around the bg. It also helps to disguise the fact that this bg doesn’t run the entire length of the card front.

There were a few areas that the color on the bg had run into the white letters but a little touch up w/ a white Posca pen helped disguise it.

Here’s the inside. Just a little trimmed off piece at the bottom & I used the same rainbow ink to stamp the greeting.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Today’s Free For All Challenge (F4A368) on Splitcoast wants us to use a food or a food related image/theme. So I’m going w/ a tasty cupcake!

The cupcake was stamped & colored, then I used parts of 2 greetings and die cut the word “wish” twice & stacked it. After lining it up on the cupcake, I matched the colors & lines so it would blend in. A single candle was fussy cut & I made a small slit to insert it. A dry embossed dk red panel, some stickles & sequins were added to finish.

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

For the Inspiration Challenge (IC521), we are to use a forgotten favorite we have saved. I admit, I had forgotten about the favorite feature on Splitcoast, so my Favorite List is very slim. I did have THIS one from way back & I love the candles so that’s what I picked for my card. 

Instead of a stamp, I used a Christmas Candle die & attached it to a white frame w/ designer paper behind it. The center & right candles just have the dp showing thru, but since the left candle is partly on the frame, I added a piece of dp behind it. I added more of the holly on the upper left & also added some inlay pieces to all the the holly leaves. The Merry Christmas was die cut 3 times & stacked so it would sit up higher on top.

Here’s a look at the inside.
