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:

For the Splitcoast Inspiration Challenge (IC703), we heading over to Ballard Designs & I was inspired by THIS picture. I like the blue & white floral on the oval back chair.

My sympathy card is pretty simple…I die cut the long stem flower out of white & blue then placed the white outline on top of the blue version. The bottom section is an inked embossing folder border I thought mimicked the flower. I had to do a little out of the box on the greeting using a partial die cut shape. Some liquid pearls dots were added here & there after I added the blue, white & marbled blue layers.

It’s my pleasure to host the Splitcoast Featured Stamper Challenge (FS632) this week! A big congrats to Liz, the newest Featured Stamper! She has such a fun gallery & after much browsing, I chose THIS to case. I kept most of the layout w/ the wide white frame, but I used different images & colors & made mine a sympathy card.

For my CAS sympathy card, I found a piece of paper I hand marbled ages ago. It was in oranges & pinks w/ a dk blue vein running thru it & I copied it onto a piece of neon pink paper. I stamped the birds on the branch directly onto this using very dark navy ink. I used a white gel pen to add highlights then added a white frame & a navy diamond cut frame. 

Here’s the inside.
