It’s my turn & my pleasure to host the Splitcoast Featured Stamper Challenge. A big congrats to Kerry! She has such a beautiful gallery & I chose THIS to case. I had the same cute little row of houses stamp, so I used that & kept most of the layout. But I used different colors, left off the bow & made mine a summer card instead of Christmas.

After die cutting the large circle, I hunted around for some paper to stamp the houses onto & came across a scrap of a hand marbled piece & I liked the color, so there you go. I fussy cut them & popped them up a bit. The trees were stamped, colored & cut w/ matching dies & the greeting is a rearranged version of the original greeting (Beautiful Day),  plus I penned in 2 of the letters to complete it. I added a little sand at the bottom w/ a splatter image then cut the pieces of beach themed paper for the bg.

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

Thanks so much for stopping by!

It’s my turn & my pleasure to host the Splitcoast Inspiration Challenge (IC696) this week! And we’re headed to the land down under w/ a site of fab scenery & colorful beach towels. I chose THIS picture for my inspiration. I really liked the black & white pattern w/ just the addition of a green leaf.

 

To make my card, I die cut the wavy frame out of white & again out of the black & white patterned paper then put back the inserts as you see. I had a sponged piece of paper left from last week’s card (here), so I used it to die cut leaves, the larger frame & the Smile word.

Here’s the inside:

Welcome to April & to the Splitcoaststampers Fan Club April Christmas Challenge! I’m part of the challenge team again this year & the bonus is I’ll have a bunch of Christmas cards finished in plenty of time for Christmas this year. You’ll need to be Fan Club member but that’s easy…just click the blue link to find out how. Bet you’re wondering what the challenge theme is..I’d love to tell you but you’ll have to go see for yourself.

For my Christmas Wishes card, I used an embossing folder on the white bg, then paper pieced some strips for a faux woven bg. I used part of a box of Christmas cards I bought that are supposed to have a picture inserted so the entire back is 5×7 piece of this heavy weight Christmas print w/ little red foil accents. After I glued them, I embossed it all again.  The rest was just die cutting the holly out of green glitter card, the Wishes & backing oval out of red glitter card, then attaching a red foil frame over the bg. 

Here’s the inside.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
