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!

For the Splitcoast Inspiration Challenge (IC754) we’re headed to the Wooden Shoe Tulip Farm & my inspiration was THIS picture. I don’t have a tulip die, so I subbed a poppy like flower for my wreath.

I die cut a bajillion or so of the 5 petal flowers..colored them w/ the inks & a water brush or sponging, then shaped them. I used the ball end of a very large stylus to add the black centers & a much smaller stylus to add the tiny black dots. After I attached the flowers to a couple of die cut rings, I added some black glitter glue to the centers. I started to do my wreath like the inspiration w/ the flower color mixed, but after playing w/ it a while, I liked the more dramatic look of the red fading to the paler color on the opposite side. The white bg was die cut w/ a floral frame & the greeting stamped in the center. 

Thanks so much for stopping by!

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!
