It’s my turn to host the Splitcoast Featured Stamper Challenge (FS797) so a big congrats to Karen! She has a big, beautiful gallery & I chose THIS card to case. I kept the floral theme and long layout but used different images, dies & stencil.

For my card, I used a new stamp set & coordinating stencil. The stencil has layered parts so it’s so quick & easy to add color w/ no masking..I just love it! After I stamped it, I used the stencil to sponge on the yellows & lt reds for the flower & greens for the leaves. I did a little out of the box to keep from cutting off parts of the flower when I die cut it w/ mini slimline die. I added the greeting on its own oval & backed it w/ a scallop oval. On the lg green bg, after die cutting w/ the larger mini slimline, I used a new piercing cover die for some added interest.

Since I forgot to add the ink colors in my top picture, here are the colors I used to sponge the flower & leaves:

A big congrats to Lynn, the newest Featured Stamper (FS788) on Splitcoast! She has wonderful gallery full of scrap book pages & I chose THIS as the base for my card. I used a similar layout & similar colors, but used different images & dies, & made mine a bird birthday card.

For my card, I bartered a piece of white card stock w/ the Distress inks, going from light at the top to dark at the bottom. After heat setting, I placed it in my Misti & stamped the bird bg w/ the Versaclair ink then clear embossed it. I used a bit of water to remove a little ink on the birds, so they would show up a little better. I wanted a little sparkle, so I spritzed it w/ a clear shimmer spray before die cutting it w/ the scalloped mimi slimline die. It was a little too long so I trimmed off the top & bottom a tiny bit. The bird was stamped, colored & die cut, w/ a couple of extra blank birds behind it to elevate it a bit. The Birthday part of the greeting was die cut out of thick white card that I sponged on the same colors I used in the bg. Some Versamark was rubbed over it then it was clear embossed twice to give it a shiny, enameled look. A few clear dew drops were added to the bg. A little clear Wink of Stella was added to the bird’s tail feathers.

Here are the Copics I used:

For the Splitcoast Inspiration Challenge (IC849), we’re visiting a company called Babasouk & their Pinterest Board where I found THIS lovely picture.


For my spring slimline, I stamped, colored & fussy cut the bike, then sponged the background sky, grass & sun. I used some little flower images from the Woodlands set to ad the row of flowers. The picket fence was die cut & since it’s an A2 size, I didn’t cut all the way to the end, moved the die down, matching up the pickets, & cut the rest of the way, effectively adding almost another length of fence. A lt gray Copic was used to add some dimension to the fence. A couple of sections of grass were added; 1 behind the fence & 1 in front. The cloud edges were lightly sponged & added across the top.

Here are the Copics I used:
