It’s my turn & my pleasure to host the Splitcoast Featured Stamper Challenge (FS645). So a big congrats to Michelle! She has a lovely gallery & after browsing her entire gallery, I kept coming back to THIS. I kept the Hot Air Balloon theme & layout, but I used dies instead of a stamp, different colors & a shaving cream bg instead of a watercolor bg.
 My version is pretty simple..I sponged a white piece of c/s w/ yellow & orange Distress inks, then die cut one of just the yellow for the outline & the inserts out of the red/orange part. The greeting was white embossed on black & the sky circle is a remnant piece of  shaving cream bg.

Here’s the inside. I used the negatives of the balloon & clouds as a stencil to sponge thru them.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

A big congrats to Sunny, the newest Featured Stamper (FS631)! She has a small, but gorgeous gallery. After strolling around for awhile, I chose THIS to case. I kept the houses & hot air balloon, but used different dies & stamped instead of die cut houses & used a die cut greeting. 

After adding just a little color & fussy cutting the row of house, I die cut the trees, balloon, clouds, grass & greeting out of white. The trees & grass were colored & I found a piece of watercolor bg for the balloon & die cut it again to add the inserts. The Hi is actually from a Hugs die but I trimmed it to get what you see.

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

A big congrats to Suzy, the newest Featured Stamper (FS585) on Splitcoast! She has a wonderful gallery & since she lives in Texas & I am from Texas, I couldn’t resist picking THIS card to case. She has a lot of Tx themed cards but I liked the Tx flag on the balloon so I kept that. I used different stamps & dies & put my Tx flag on a punch out of the state outline.

This card turned out to be a little trickier than I thought it would. Mostly because the big Hot Air Balloons bg die actually has a very large balloon in the lower left that I didn’t want to be there. So I had to die cut it pretty carefully using a smaller top plate to avoid cutting it out. A tiny bit of it did start to cut so I covered it up by die cutting a small cloud in that area (just to right of her face). I also die cut a lt blue layer & lined it up a little off to shadow the white. The right balloon has a colored Tx state punch under it. The little cowgirl was done separately & fussy cut around the top & sides to go on top.

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