I created this challenge for Friday’s Free For All Challenge on Splitcoast. This week we were to create anything that grows in your garden or reminds you of springtime. I just got this Greet the Day with Gerber set from Mark’s Finest Papers and was eager to try it out.

I still had a Label 13 die cut from my the Double Embossing sample and stamped the image on that with Tuxedo Black Memento Ink. It was colored with Copic Markers (Flowers: R11, R12, R14    Leaves: YG93, YG95, YG97,    Sky: B41, B0000,    Center: E97, E99) and adhered to a piece of Canyon Brown cardstock, that was hand cut to a slightly bigger layer.

The edges of the layer were paper pierced. The layers were adhered to a piece of Neenah Solar White cardstock that had been cut and embossed with the Fleur De Lis Pendant die.

For the layout I used last weeks CPS sketch. The card base is a 4 3/4″ x 9 1/2″ piece of Neenah Solar White cardstock. Two 4 3/4″ long strips of Canyon Brown cardstock were cut and embossed with a Eyelet Borderabilities die and adhered underneath a 2 3/4″ wide strip of  Hazel Stella & Rose MME paper. The edges of the square were stitched, the edges of the horizontal strip topped with white lace (bought at Walmart), the center with May Arts floral lace.

The layers were adhered to the card base and the image was adhered to the layers with dimensionals. The sentiment is from the same set. It was stamped in Tuxedo Black Memento ink on a tag that had been cut with a retired die and was colored with Copic Markers (YR30, YR31, E97). The tag was topped with a Sheer pink bow topped with a Recollection brad. Silver Recollection pearls on the top right finish off the card.

I made this card for one of the Free For All Challenges last month. We were to create a card with a window in the front. I recently had gotten some stamps from Mark’s Finest papers and decided to use this sweet owl from the stamp set Owl Be There.  It was stamped in Walnut Stain Distress ink on Neenah Solar White cardstock and cut out with Petite Oval Nestabilities.  The flower center of the owl was colored with Copic Markers (Y21, YR21, YR23). An orange Rhinestone was adhered in the center of the flower.  It was layered on a Old Olive piece of cardstock that had been cut with Label 10 Nestabilities and stamped with a stamp from the Background Fun Stamp Set in Forest Moss Distress ink. A 1/4″ frame was cut out of Chocolate Chip cardstock with Petite Oval Nestabilities and sponged with Walnut Stain Distress ink.

The card base is a 4 1/4″ x 11″ piece of Deepest Mahogany cardstock folded in half. An oval window was cut into the card front with Petite Oval Nestabilities. A 3 3/4″ x 5″ piece of Cosmo Cricket Early Bird Paperwas layered with a 2 3/4″ x 3 3/4″ piece of patterned paper out of the paper pack. A border was cut out of white cardstock with Lattice Borderabilities. It was adhered over the top of the paper strip. the two punch outs of the border were taped to the top left and right corners of the card front. Split Pea Rhinestones topped those off. The layer was stitched to a 3 15/16″ x 5 3/16″ piece of Whisper White cardstock. An oval was cut through those layers before they were adhered to the card front.

A frame was cut out of Old Olive cardstock by layering a Petite Oval into a Label 10 Nestabilities. The edges of the frame were sponged with Peeled Paint Distress Ink. The frame was stamped with the Cracked background stamp from the Background Fun Stamp Set. A bow made with Mahogany Satin Ribbon adhered to the frame with a glue dot. More Split Pea Rhinestones were adhered to the top of the frame as well as the bottom right of the card front.

The sentiment is from Owl Be There. It was stamped in Walnut Stain Distress Ink on Neenah Solar White cardstock, cut out with Petite Oval Nestabilities and sponged with Dried Marigold Distress Ink. It was adhered to the card front with dimensionals.

For the inside of the card a 1 3/4″ x 3 15/16″ piece of Early Bird patterned paper was stitched to a 3 15/16″ x 5 3/16″ piece of Whisper White cardstock. The main image along with it’s layers was adhered in the center so you can see it to the window of the card front.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a great day! Hugs and smiles
