A big congrats to Christine, the newest Featured Stamper (FS842)! She has a fabulous gallery full of gorgeous florals & I chose THIS card to case. I kept the circular flower element but used a stamped & watercolored floral instead of die cut flowers. I also used different dies, colors & changed mine to an A6 card instead of square.

After stamping the geraniums onto watercolor paper, I used a couple of paintbrushes & Peerless watercolor booklet to paint them. Had to do a little out of the box when I die cut them to keep from cutting off the leaves on the right. The large, fancy circular die was used on some maroon paper. After I cut it, I liked the way it looked when I put it back inside the cutout, so I used this way.

For the Happy Birthday, I used the big Happy & the small Birthday, stamped them w/ a combo of Versaclair Glamorous & Purple Delight to get the color I wanted, then die cut them. The greeting & flower circle were popped up a bit.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

For the Splitcoast Inspiration Challenge (IC895), we’re visiting Mud Pie & their Pinterest Boards where I found THIS lovely picture. I really liked all the hearts in different papers so I based my card on that.

My card is pretty easy..I die cut the white background panel w/ a stitched rectangle then ran it thru w/ the quilted stitch piercing die. All the hearts were die cut out of various watercolor & shaving cream background scraps I had in my stash. I elected not to use the open outlines & used only the solid centers of the hearts. After arranging them, I stamped & die cut the greeting then added a narrow turquoise layer underneath.

The hearts were all popped up just a bit before attaching to the white pierced layer.

so much for stopping by!

For the Splitcoast Inspiration Challenge (IC854) we’re visiting a Pinterest Board called The Postmans Knock where I found THIS picture.

I wanted a watercolor look to my branches so I put a die cut piece of water color paper into my Misti to allow me to stamp the same branch w/ different shades of inks. On the first impression, I misted the branch w/ a little water. After stamping w/ 2 or 3 colors, I also used some water based makers to add a little more depth to the leaves. The greeting was stamped on a separate piece of w/c paper along w/ the butterfly. I used a water brush to spread the ink colors inside the butterfly then stamped it again using the darkest of the teal inks. I repeated this on a scrap of w/c paper & cut that butterfly out to pop up on top of the base image. The greeting layer was popped up on top to give some dimension.

Stickles was added to the butterfly & gems attached on the branches.
