It’s my turn & my pleasure to host the Splitcoast Featured Stamper Challenge. A big congrats to Kerry! She has such a beautiful gallery & I chose THIS to case. I had the same cute little row of houses stamp, so I used that & kept most of the layout. But I used different colors, left off the bow & made mine a summer card instead of Christmas.

After die cutting the large circle, I hunted around for some paper to stamp the houses onto & came across a scrap of a hand marbled piece & I liked the color, so there you go. I fussy cut them & popped them up a bit. The trees were stamped, colored & cut w/ matching dies & the greeting is a rearranged version of the original greeting (Beautiful Day),  plus I penned in 2 of the letters to complete it. I added a little sand at the bottom w/ a splatter image then cut the pieces of beach themed paper for the bg.

Here’s the inside & below it are the Copics I used.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

It’s my pleasure to host the 700th Inspiration Challenge (IC700)! Wow! That’s a lot of inspiration. And I chose a place that was a discussion of colors. For my first card, I was inspired by THIS. I love all the blue butterflies.

After coloring & die cutting the butterflies, I sponged the Distress inks onto my white panel, then sprayed it w/ thinned out white acrylic paint. I thought it still needed more, so stamped over the sponged areas w/ the same Distress inks using a splatter bg image.

Here’s the inside & the Copics I used for the butterflies.

Stamps: Rubbernecker Stamps: Brush Butterflies , Splatter Bg
Paper:  Staples 110# white, X-Press It, gray
Ink: Memento tuxedo black, Versaclair nocturne, Distress inks tumbled glass, evergreen bough, weathered wood, black soot
Accessories:  Rubbernecker stitched rectangles, Fluttering Butterflies , Nested Banner Stitch, Rectangle Stitch Frame , Floral Frame dies, Copic markers, white Posca paint pen

 

My second card is all about shades of gray & black. My moonlit scene was inspired by THIS picture.

After die cutting the birches & grasses out of black, a circle of white & a bg out of gray, I sponged on a little black & gray onto the gray bg.

I used white & lt. gray Prismacolor pencils to add some depth & shading to the moon, birches & grasses.

Here’s the inside.

Supplies:

Stamps: You’re What Happened
Paper:  Staples 110# white, black, gray
Ink: Versaclair nocturne

Welcome to Mayl & to the Splitcoaststampers Fan Club May Christmas Challenge! I’m part of the challenge team again this year & the bonus is I’ll have a bunch of Christmas cards finished in plenty of time for Christmas this year. You’ll need to be Fan Club member but that’s easy…just click the blue link to find out how. Bet you’re wondering what the challenge theme is..I’d love to tell you but you’ll have to go see for yourself.

For my Christmas card, I colored & fussy cut the little bear (from a larger image) so I could put him in the driver’s seat of this cute little corvette. After I die cut the pine tree forest & snow hill, I saw there was a bit of green at the bottom of the dp I wanted to use so I colored the corvette mint green. The tiny holly & little bird were fussy cut from a snowman image. I guess since he’s a polar bear, driving w/ the top down in the winter is not a problem!

Here’s the inside & below it are the Copics I used.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
