A big congrats to Julee, the newest Featured Stamper  (FS646) on Splitcoast! She has a gorgeous gallery & I picked several I wanted to case, but kept coming back to THIS card. I kept the coffee theme & layout, but used different images, different dies & made my own background paper.

For my card, I stamped the bg text a bunch of times w/ the truffle ink onto cream c/s, masking the edge so they wouldn’t run over each other, then stamped the splats & Coffee words & inked the edges. The 2 coffee go cups were sponged in the two different colors & die cut branches were added. The greeting is 2 put together on a die cut circle w/ the edges sponges. I forgot about the ribbon until after I had already glued the panel to the card, so I just frayed the left edge instead of trying to tuck it under.

Here’s a look at the inside.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

It’s my turn & my pleasure to host the Splitcoast Featured Stamper Challenge (FS645). So a big congrats to Michelle! She has a lovely gallery & after browsing her entire gallery, I kept coming back to THIS. I kept the Hot Air Balloon theme & layout, but I used dies instead of a stamp, different colors & a shaving cream bg instead of a watercolor bg.
 My version is pretty simple..I sponged a white piece of c/s w/ yellow & orange Distress inks, then die cut one of just the yellow for the outline & the inserts out of the red/orange part. The greeting was white embossed on black & the sky circle is a remnant piece of  shaving cream bg.

Here’s the inside. I used the negatives of the balloon & clouds as a stencil to sponge thru them.

The theme for the Free For All Challenge (F4A483) on Splitcoaststampers is Stormy Weather. Looks like my little Miss Frog is caught in a doozy of one. Her mind must be elsewhere because it appears she’s about to struck by lightning!

My card is pretty simple. I stamped the lightning bolt then used a clear glaze pen to fill it in. I figured out quite a while ago that it will resist sponging w/ Distress inks. So after I sponged on the stormy sky colors, they wiped right off my lightning bolt. I masked the ground & sponged it then added some raindrops. I also flicked some water on the bg & blotted it w/ a paper towel to add to the rain look. Miss Froggie was colored w/ Copics & fussy cut. Here’s the inside & below it are the Copics I used.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
