Congrats to Angie, the newest Featured Stamper (FS751) on Splitcoast! She has a beautiful gallery & I chose THIS card to case. I kept the colored bg w/ the lattice die cut on top & the flower in the corner, but I used different images & dies, different colors & a stamped flower instead of a die cut flower.

For my card, I used a brayer & a rainbow pad to create my bg & I used a slimline lattice die for the cover. Instead of cutting it lengthwise, I turned it sideways & cut 2 short pieces to put side by side, horizontally. I knew the greeting strip would cover the join, so I didn’t even worry about that. The sides were trimmed down a bit to fit & I added a lime green layer behind it. The peony was half die cut/half fussy cut, using my out of the box method.

Here are the Copics I used on the peony:

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.

For the Splitcoast Inspiration Challenge (IC782), we’re headed to Traditions.I was inspired by THIS display picture. All the Christmas items & colors combined reminded me of this background stamp.

After coloring it all in, it was die cut & I used a scallop bubble edge die for the blue layer. Since it was basically the same size as my main panel, I used my resizing technique to make 1 scallop longer & 1 scallop wider so it would show up. The greeting was stamped on a small rectangle & layered w/ a blue half scallop panel & a slightly bigger white panel.

Here are the Copics I used. If you’re wondering about the V06, it was used to underpin the reds in the deepest shadow areas.
