A big congrats to Trudy, the newest Featured Stamper on Splitcoast! She has a wonderful gallery & I chose THIS to case. I really did case her card..even though it may not look like it. I loved the color in the bg w/ the die cut on top so that’s what I kept. I used different colors, dies & sponging instead of brayering.

I took a few extra pics to show you how I got the color in precise areas & left a white highlight.

First, I attached the black die cut to the white card stock w/ temporary adhesive (pic above). Then I used the makeup brushes to apply the colors in specific areas.I didn’t worry about getting in on it since it’s black, I knew it wouldn’t show.

You can see the negative white image when I remove the die cut. I started to use it just like that, but then decided it added more drama to put the black die cut back in on top, but I shifted it slightly, to leave a white highlight on the right side (pic below). I like how it resembles stained glass.

The birthday greeting is part of a balloon image & trimmed off the balloons after die cutting it & attached it to an oval frame.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Congrats to Teresa, the newest Featured Stamper (FS691)! She has lovely gallery & I chose THIS card to case. I kept the framed floral w/ greeting underneath, but I used different images, changed the oval layers to rectangular, & made mine a sympathy card.

For my sympathy card, I’m using these lovely calla lilies & a stained glass oval on top.  The lily & frame are all one image, but I didn’t want the stained glass on top of the word frame, so I did them separately. I could have just left off the word framing, but I like how the big sympathy greeting echos the word frame. I die cut the white frame & inside rectangle first, then stamped the 2 parts of the lily & added a green frame. After coloring the lily, I stamped the stained glass on top w/ the gray ink & added just a hint of color here & there. I also added just a bit of color to the large greeting.

Here are the Copics I used:

A big congrats to Melody, the newest Featured Stamper on Splitcoast! She has such a wonderful gallery & she’s such a sweet lady! I chose THIS to case. I kept the stained glass window but used different images & dies & made mine a Christmas card.

I first stamped & colored the candles at the bottom, then I dropped pools of rubbing alcohol on the top & added drops of Copic refills in blues & lavenders. I let the colors pool & mingle but kept them mostly away from the candles by not wetting that area. Then I added the arched window frame & stamped, colored & fussy cut the holly greeting oval.  Here’s a look at the inside & also the Copics I used.
