A big congrats to my dear friend Kittie as the newest Featured Stamper (FS896) on Splitcoast! Does she have a fabulous gallery? Definitely! And it was so hard to choose, but I finally picked THIS card to case. I kept the white on white & formed flowers, but I used different dies & stamps & turned mine horizontal instead of a vertical.

For my card, I die cut the main white panel with a stitched rectangle then used a new piercing die for the flower bg. I die cut the fancy center panels, stamped the greeting not he smaller one, then added the white flowers & clear gems.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

It’s my pleasure to host the Inspiration Challenge (IC852) this week & I had a lot of fun w/ all the inspiration pics on the DIY Craft Land site. After much browsing, I chose THIS picture to inspire me.

After die cutting the vases & all the little flowers, I put them together & did a little shaping on them. I die cut the white mini slimline panel then die cut the hexagon panel inside it. I started to use a woodgrain panel behind it, like the woodgrain in my inspiration pic, but I just didn’t like it, so I saved it for the plant shelves. I cut some little pieces of brighter colored paper to put behind the openings. The blues I had weren’t quite right, so I used a BG01 Copic to color it & also the edge of the panel behind the main one. Some stickles was added to flower centers & some gems sprinkled around for a little sparkle. The peachy-pink gems were also colored w/ a Copic R14 to match the papers.

It’s my pleasure to host the Splitcoast Inspiration Challenge (IC804) this week & we’re headed to Nina Cloak &/0r their Pinterest Board. There were so many lovely patterns on their items, but I really liked the split negative look of THIS dress.

After stamping, coloring & die cutting the flowers, I die cut the white & black bgs w/ the rect stitch dies. Then I stacked them & die cut the stitched hills diagonally; I cut them at the same time in order to have them match exactly. Then I split them apart a bit & added a strip of lavender in between. To compensate for this spread, after putting the panels together, I used the rectangle die again, matching up the stitch lines across the top & bottom. This could have been done all in one step, by putting the panels together first, then die cutting the whole thing. But I didn’t think of adding the lavender strip until after I’d cut them the first time. Doesn’t it always seem to work out that way? But I’ll remember it next time!

Here are the Copics I used:
