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!

It’s my pleasure to host the Splitcoast Featured Stamper Challenge (FS737) this week, so a big congrats to Sandy! She has a wonderful gallery & after much browsing, I chose THIS card to case. I kept the floral in the oval & birthday theme, but used different stamps & dies, added a designer paper & turned the layout horizontal.

I’m using some new items..the clear stamp set & layered script You are to be released this coming week! After stamping & coloring the carnation, I used the out of the box technique & an oval die to cut it. The first part of the greeting was stamped & I masked of the rest & replaced it w/ the layered word die.

Here are the Copics I used. I went back in later & added a light shadow on the right side w/ C2 & C3 markers, so they aren’t shown below. 

Thanks so much for stopping by! I’ll get the link for the new Layered Script Word die up as soon as I get it.

For the Splitcoast Inspiration Challenge (IC797), we have a site of colorful rugs. I was inspired by THIS rug for the pretty blue poppies.

To make my card, I stamped the individual poppies, leaves & stems on the main panel then stamped a couple extra poppies. After coloring everything, I die cut the extra poppies w/ their matching dies & popped them up a bit. The main panel was die cut w/ a slimline rectangle & along w/ doing the out of the box on the outsides, I also moved the bottom of the die up & cut the panel shorter (aka resizing). I used regular stitched rectangle dies for the lime & cobalt panels, then cut them narrower to place behind the poppy panel. The greeting was die cut w/ a tag die & for this, I cut one end, turned the die around & cut the other end so both ends would be the same.

Here are the Copics I used for the poppies.
