Button Baby cu 05773
A big congrats to Becky, the newest Featured Stamper on Splitcoast (FS421)! She has a fun, colorful gallery and it was hard to pick, but I kept coming back to THIS card. I even started out to use a horse silhouette, but mine was a bit too small so I changed it to a baby giraffe & then changed the stars to buttons. I also changed it to a baby card & added some die cut lace & piercing.

Button Baby 05772
My card is pretty simple…mostly die cuts. The baby giraffe was stamped on kraft & I added just a bit of shading with a white Prismacolor pencil. The inside edge of the circle die was traced w/ a black Sharpie then I used the same die to cut it, added some piercing & added a white scallop circle  die cut behind it. The large kraft panel was die cut across the bottom w/ a scallop die then more piercing all around. The white crochet lace was also die cut & added beneath it. I used a border piercing die to just emboss the front of the white card. Some kraft & white buttons were die cut, twine tied through them & added in the scallops.

Congrats again, Becky! Thanks so much for stopping by!

For my first card, I combined the new Vintage Labels dies & Carried to Heaven with the Flourish Label Borders, Vintage Flourish Pattern dies, Ornamental Cross Collection dies & Chalkboard Vine Background from last month’s release. I also added the Cala Lily from the Loving Memories set. After I die cut the Vintage Labels and the Vintage Flourish Pattern dies out of white, I left the dies in place on the labels and stamped the Chalkboard Vine pattern on top using the sky blue ink. I added the Flourish Label Border on the largest die using the black ink.

The lilies were colored with Copics and fussy cut. I added a bit of blue to the smallest cross and stacked the crosses on top of the lilies. The finished card is 5.50 x 4.25 and these are the Copics I used.

Sheltering Angel 03488
For my second card, I used the Sheltering Angel, the Chalkboard Vine Background, the Vintage Label Dies, the largest of the Vintage Flourish Pattern die and the Angel Wings dies. I liked the lt blue ink on white on my first card, so I made a large background again using the Chalkboard Vine Bg and the sky blue ink. I thought it needed a little something, so I pierced all around the border. The Sheltering Angel blessing was stamped, die cut and with the die still in place,  I used colors from the two Kaleidacolor pads to sponge the color on top. For the yellow label and the largest background, I stamped the Chalkboard Vine bg again using the straw ink (stamped one off) and sponged on a little more of the same ink to deepen the color. The Angel Wings were die cut out of yellow and I used the yellow & orange inks from the melon Kpad to add a little more color.

Julie Warner -
Today, we are reviewing the ODBD November release.  Aren’t these ornament images and dies lovely? So perfect for all your Christmas cards and so easy to customize with whatever colors and papers you want to use. For my ornament, I stamped it w/ the concord ink and added color w/ Copic markers. The greeting was stamped on a strip of the same snowflake paper (from the ODBD Christmas Paper Collection), added a hint of color before attaching it across the ornament w/ a couple of purple mini brads.  For the snowflake paper layer, I used a French curve ruler and a craft knife to cut the curvy borders. After piercing along the edges, I added a bunch of graduating sizes of circles. These were die cut and although I didn’t use the actual die cut, I liked all the little rounded dots.

The snowflake paper was attached on top of another piece of designer paper. On this dp, I enhanced the lt blue areas w/ a Copic marker. After everything was attached, I added some stickles to the dots and also the centers of the snowflakes on the ornament.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
