It’s my turn to host the Splitcoaststampers Featured Stamper Challenge (FS580) so a big congrats to Carlene! Carlene not only has a beautiful gallery, she also volunteers her time to notify people each week in the favorites thread & also leaves the warmest, sweetest comments for everyone. It’s truly my pleasure to feature her this week.

After much browsing, I chose THIS to case. I love the sun ray embossing so I kept that, but I used different colors, different die cut bg & made mine an Easter card.

For my Easter card, I first die cut & embossed the sunburst bg. For the Lily Cross Blessings circle, I stamped it w/ Versacolor indigo pigment ink then heat embossed it w/ pastel embossing powder. The embossing powder lightens the ink color &  gives it a slight metallic sheen. For the lilies,  I put the image into my Misti, stamped it w/ sky blue ink, lightly colored w/ Copics, over stamped w/ the same indigo ink & embossed w/ the same powder. Then I did quite a bit of fussy cutting on them. 

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

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Love this little cardinal sitting on the Holiday Mailbox! We have soooo many cardinals in our yard. It probably helps that we have an evergreen hedge that has berries in the winter, a bird feeder, a bird bath/water dish & plenty of trees. Up until today, it’s been so dry that the water thing (holds a gallon) has had to be refilled every day for over a month! Last week, we had a whole flock of robins lined up to get a drink. Anyway, after coloring the image, I added some stickles for sparkle & while it was drying, I die cut the papers. Instead of layering the image on top, I went w/ making frames to go around it. I like how the paper complements the image & the sparkle of the pink glitter paper adds texture & holiday fun.

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