A big congrats to Karen, the newest Featured Stamper (FS755) on Splitcoast! She has a wonderful gallery & I chose THIS card to case. I kept the floral theme but used different stamps, dies & colors. I also changed the layout a bit.

For my thank you card, I stamped the layered flowers using the Color Fuse inks then die cut the white panel using my out of the box technique & a slimline die for the flower on the left. The black layer was die cut w/ a larger die & attached behind. The greeting was white embossed & I added a line of pearls as embellishments.


Thanks so much for stopping by!

For the Splitcoast Inspiration Challenge (IC816), we’re going to Apollo Box & their Pinterest Board, where I found THIS lovely picture. I liked the turquoise color & stripes in the bg.

For my 5″ square card, I die cut the sq. turquoise panel then placed it into my Misti & stamped it a few times using the diagonal lines bg & versaclair nocturne. The white layers were die cut w/ stitched squares & one of the borders of the square combo die. The layered flowers were stamped using turquoise & green Color fuse inks, then die cut w/ their matching dies. The top flowers were popped up & the greeting stamped in the corner.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

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.
