It’s my pleasure to host the Splitcoast Featured Stamper Challenge (FS741) this week! So a big congrats to Heather, the newest FS. She has a beautiful gallery & I chose THIS card to case. I kept the layout & green (because I LOVE greens), but used different images & dies & made my card a floral instead of a St. Patrick’s Day card.

For my card, after stamping, coloring & die cutting the poppies, I did the stems & leaves & fussy cut them to add them to my white circle. The smaller bg was sponged w/ the lime greens & a little teal on the ends. The larger bg is one I made a while back w/ a die cut & some Brushos, but I wasn’t crazy how it looked alone. But it worked great behind my sponged layer.
Here’s how it looked by itself. See? Nothing to write home about. I took some die cut leaves to use as a mask, then sprinkled the Brushos & spritzed w/ water.

I put the sponged panel into my Misti & stamped w/ the Versaclair then put all my layers together & added a few gems.

Here are the Copics I used for the poppies:

Welcome to April!  And it’s time for the Splitcoaststampers Fan Club April  Christmas Challenge! We have a year of new Christmas Challenges!  You’ll need to be Fan Club member but that’s easy…just click the blue link to find out how. Bet you’re wondering what the challenge theme is..I’d love to tell you but you’ll have to go see for yourself. Hint..I’m really loving the new theme for this year. This post should have been up on April 1st, so I’m a little late.

For my snowman Christmas card, after coloring & die cutting the snowman & presents, I popped them up a bit on a stitched oval then added the stamped greeting on a strip underneath. The blue paper was attached behind them & I added some stickles to all the centers of the snowflakes on the paper.

Here are the Copics I used:

It’s my pleasure to host the Splitcoast Inspiration Challenge (IC800) this week & the site I chose is Design Stack & their Pinterest Boards. I found THIS cute pic & used it for my inspiration.

For my card, I also have a fun & useful tutorial. It’s really simple & I’m a little surprised it took me this long to figure it out. This revelation actually came about because of a little accident & I had an “aha” moment when it happened.  My tutorial involves the mirror image little cat on the far left. But the best part is, not only is he a stamped mirror image of the cat on the right, he was also die cut using the same die. So after I colored & die cut the cat on the right & the 3 in the center, I really wanted a mirror image cat. I’ve done the mirror image stamping quite a bit so that part was easy. Since these are clear stamps, I reasoned that the back of a larger clear stamp would be the best choice for my mirror image. I will mention, right off the bat, a Misti is essential to this technique. So here’s what I did: (click on any pic to enlarge)



Up to this point is the normal process for mirror image stamping. The difference is since it’s in the Misti & I didn’t clean off the ink on the original image (that was the accident part), it stamped the image on both sides of the card stock.



This where the “aha” moment kicked in. Since it was stamped using the Misti, the stamped image is exactly in the same spot on both sides. I taped the die to the right (normal) side..the side the die actually fits.


Finished! I did 2 of these to show you the right side & the mirror side. With this little trick it’s now possible to die cut a mirror image. Yay! No fussy cutting! I will mention that I made sure to have a smooth surface (I used the metal shim under mine) for the mirror image (cutting side). Otherwise you’ll have ridges if your cutting plate is well used.

The background was stamped w/ the Color Fuse inks & another coffee set. Here are the Copics I used.
