Congrats to Lee Ann, the newest Featured Stamper (FS648) on Splitcoast! I’ve been a fan of Lee Ann’s for a long time & I had a hard time picking just one.  I kept coming back to THIS card. I loved the colors & silhouette image so I kept those, but I used die cut flowers instead of stamped, different greeting & added a couple of layers.

I started by cutting a mask that sort of followed the shape of the die cut flowers, then sponging the yellow orange on the right & turquoise on the left. I actually made 2 of these panels & die cut one smaller than the other to place on top. A black zigzag frame was added  & the black flowers were attached to a white version for a little dimension. I finished it w/ the greeting & some black sequins.

Here’s the inside:

For the Color Challenge (CC746) on Splitcoast, we have a really bright pink, pale pink & apple green. I’ve had this stamped Foxglove image sitting around for a long time. I don’t have the exact colors but I think I came close. 

After coloring & die cutting the foxglove, I die cut a bunch of crochet borders out of the white, pinks & greens then colored just the very edges of some of them. I attached them to the card front, offsetting each row. To give the image a bit of separation from the bg, I added an embossed white panel behind it.

These are the Copics I used:

The Splitcoast Inspiration Challenge (IC707) is a fabric site full of colors & patterns. I was inspired by THIS fabric for the bright colors. From the thumbnail, it looked floral to me so that’s the direction I went.

Instead of embossing resist, I did the reverse on my background. I sponged on the Distress inks, dried it w/ a heat gun then used my embossing buddy over to make sure it was really dry. (It probably would have been easier to emboss, then sponge, but sometimes it’s hard to get all of ink off of the embossing & I wanted it to be really crisp & white.) Then the azaleas were white embossed on top. The white front was die cut twice w/ a stitched curve die to make the split thru the center. After adding the greeting, I die cut some tiny flowers out of leftover background pieces & attached them.

Here’s a look at the inside. The azalea image is a 2 part stamp & while I only used the outline on the front, I used both here on the inside. There’s also a matching die for it, if you’re interested. 

Thanks so much for stopping by!
