It’s my pleasure to host the Splitcoast Featured Stamper Challenge (FS678) this week, so a big congrats to JJ Barrett (aka IndigosMom)! JJ has a lovely, colorful gallery & I chose THIS card to case. I kept the blue flower & chevron embossing, but used different images & dies, different embossing folder & a different layout.

To me, the blue, white & yellow color combo looks so fresh & crisp. After I colored the flowers, I die cut them, doing a little out of the box cutting to lift a couple of the petals on top of the die cut zigzag frame I attached on top. The script was heat embossed w/ white ink & white powder onto the cobalt blue strip. The white bg was dry embossed & I actually used the back side because I liked it a little better for this. On the Love die cut, I cut it in white & also blue, then spliced them together, using the cut off parts underneath their opposites for a double stack.

Here are the Copics I used. I also used yellow & ultramarine Prismacolor Pencils to add depth to the colors.

Thanks so much for stopping by! 

Supplies:

Stamps: Rubbernecker Stamps: Brushed Flower #5, Script Border #3
Paper:  Staples 110# white, turquoise, Hammermill Digital card, cobalt blue
Ink: Memento tuxedo black, Colorbox frost white pigment
Accessories:  Rubbernecker Stamps:  Rectangle Stitch, Rectangle Combo #4, Love #2 dies, Copic Sketch Markers, Prismacolor Pencils, white embossing powder, Cuttlebug embossing folder (Charles set)

For the Splitcoast Inspiration Challenge (IC737), Stacy chose a group of tote bags. Lots to choose from & for my card, I was inspired by the bright colors of THIS tote bag. 

After I colored the daisies, I used a trio of blue Copics to color in the bg around the flowers. Thankfully it was a small area because it’s harder than it looks. And from experience, start w/ the lightest color first..it’s really hard to walk that dark color back, lol. I added a white frame to brighten it up a bit then attached it to the embossed orchid colored bg. I thought this embossing folder mimicked the quilting of the tote bag & I used a white gel pen to add dots at the intersections. The greeting was stamped w/ the dk navy ink & I drew the little flower over the i.

Welcome to December! I made this for 2 Splitcoast Challenges..the Splitcoaststampers Fan Club December Christmas Challenge & the Featured Stamper (FS669) where the FS is my friend Kia! I chose THIS card as my inspiration. I loved the layout & framing so I kept those, but I used different images/dies & opted to use an embossed & sponged frame instead of stenciling. As for the Christmas Challenge, 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.

For my card, I used some deckle rectangle dies to make 2 sizes of frames. On the white one, I sponged the inside & outside edges to give it some contrast & on the larger one, I ran it thru w/ an embossing folder then lightly sponged over the top of the embossing. The ornament branch was colored & die cut w/ its matching die & I used fun foam to pop it & the frame up a bit. A couple of die cut cardinals were added for a little pop of red.

The greeting was stamped & I used my out of the box die cutting technique on it. It works the same way as it does when using an image…just make your cuts right on the black lines where they go inside the die.
Here are the Copics I used.
