Wishing Success cu 09011
It’s my turn to host the FS Challenge so a big congrats to Virginia, the newest Featured Stamper (FS481) on Splitcoast! Wow! She has one awesome gallery & there are many I wanted to case, but I really liked THIS one in particular. I loved the gold embossing on vellum and the flowers so I kept those, but I used different images, added a die cut for half of the greeting & a gold striped washi tape border.

For my card, I gold embossed the flowers & half of the greeting on a piece of vellum I die cut using a pierced rectangle die. I colored it first on the backside w/ Copics, but I couldn’t quite get it dark enough, so I carefully added more color to front side, trying to stay away from the gold embossing. I attached to a same size piece of white card stock & added the Wishing word die cut out of gold mirror board.

On the larger white layer, after die cutting it, I attached strips of gold foil stripe washi tape. When I got the corners, I used scissors to mitre the corners. A few gold embossed, colored & fussy cut  blossoms were added here & there.

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

Hope is an Anchor cu 08196
Today we are taking a look back at the Our Daily Bread designs January release! Don’t you love the fabulous dies & wonderful sets? And the Bible journaling sets are so beautiful! I’m featuring one in my card today, so you’ll see, they are beautiful for more than just one use. 
Hope is an Anchor 08202
I love the images on this anchor set..the smiling sun is so wonderfully hopeful above the scripture with the anchor and shells. I had some textured paper w/ a big anchor on it & I thought it would emphasize the scripture. I wanted the anchor to show up but not overpower the scripture so I stamped it onto a antique vanilla vellum using the multi color ink & embossed it w/ clear powder. I added just a hint of color on the back side of the vellum w/ some Copic markers then used the largest Double Stitched Rectangle to die cut it. I did it 2 corners at a time to get the narrower profile. On the striped anchor dp, I wanted to stamp some of the Fishing Net Bg but I wanted to mask the anchor. After thinking about it for a minute, I decided to make a copy of the dp, then cut out the anchor for a mask. It worked perfectly. The vellum panel was attached w/ tiny brads & I did a little out of the box on the large anchor. The finished card is a little taller & narrower to accommodate the long vellum panel (4 1/18″ x 6″). 

 Here’s a look at the inside.

Pearl Egg cu05929
Today’s Inspiration Challenge (IC485) has some beautiful objects! I was inspired many but for this card, I chose THIS. I like the soft teal blue & the diagonal design.
Pearl Egg 05946
For my card, I stamped the large floral egg on white using soft pool ink then I stamped it again on the back side of the designer paper and cut it out to make the frame. I wove a diagonal lattice pattern across the back of the frame using strips of vellum.The smaller egg was stamped, die cut and attached on top. I added the corner die cuts and a greeting that I lightly sponged w/ the same ink while it was still in the die. A bunch of pearls were added to the lattice & small egg.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
