Congrats to Gayle, the newest Featured Stamper (FS722)! She has a lovely gallery & I chose THIS to case. I mainly went w/ the one on the left, keeping the cardinal & greenery, but I used different images & dies & used a different layout.

I stamped the lantern & colored it w/ Copics. Did a little out of the box to keep from cutting off the top of the lantern & the tip of the cardinal’s tail (trust me..birds do not like you messing w/ their tails).

On the kraft layer, I stamped the new pinecone all over w/ the Distress oxide ink but a left a space for the greeting. The pine green circle was dry embossed & I rubbed some gold rub n buff type paste over the top of it. A white gel pen was used to add some highlights to the greeting.

Here are the Copics I used:

Thanks so much for stopping by!

It’s my pleasure to guest host the Watercolor Wednesday Challenge (WCW018) on Splitcoast. The technique I chose is Watercolor on embossed paper. I thought it looked interesting but easy enough for everyone.

Since I wanted to make a Halloween card, I chose a couple of Halloween themed embossing folders to go w/ my cute little die cut owl. I embossed the large bg w/ the wordy folder then followed the instructions on the video using bright, Halloween colors of my Peerless watercolors. After it dried, I thought the words didn’t really pack the punch I wanted so I inked the inside of the folder w/ black soot Distress oxide ink & embossed the watercolored bg again. Much better! Now the words really show up.

I did the same for the little orange Wicked strip & perched my owl on it.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

It’s my pleasure to host the Splitcoast Featured Stamper Challenge (FS693)! So a big congrats to Linda, the newest Featured Stamper. Linda has a beautiful gallery & I chose THIS card to case. I kept the embossed dot bg & negative space branch w/ colorful flowers, but I used different stamps & dies & a different embossing folder.

After die cutting the large leaf branch into the layer, I embossed it w/ a folder that has big dots but also a blank bar across the bottom. I thought it would be the perfect area to stamp my greeting. The little daisies were are die cut out of white & sponged w/ the inks. For the green behind the leaves, I stamped it w/ 2 different random dots background images using turquoise inks then added a touch of shading w/ some Prismacolor Pencils before attaching it behind the white cut out layer.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
