Wonderful site for today’s Inspiration Challenge (IC389)! Such interesting stuff! I was drawn to this Apron for its colors and pattern. I love the contrast of the blue and orange and the edges of the apron pattern reminded me of a postage stamp so I used my Spellbinders postage edge dies to cut out two of the layers.
The images are from Our Daily Bread designs. I stamped the image twice..once on a confetti cream and once on an orange paper. I die cut the two, layered w/ a navy square in-between and put them on top of the original cream image, using the Triple Stamping tech. I added a little color to the horizon w/ Copic markers. The sentiment was die cut using only the end section of the die. The fishing net was stamped using the rust ink on the card front and also on the large orange bg. The finished card is 5.50 x 4.25.
Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a great weekend!

The Color Challenge on Splitcoast (CC426) had some pretty colors I thought would look nice in my stained glass window. I needed a wedding card and I thought this fabulous image would be perfect.
Images are from Our Daily Bread designs. The window was black embossed, colored w/ Copics and die cut using the matching ODBD/Spellbinders die. After I die cut it, I realized it would have been much easier to emboss it twice and color only the one I wasn’t going to die cut. I would have saved me from having to put all those window pieces back in place. Oh well. I did die cut another marbled frame and attach it under the embossed one to raise it up a bit from the stained glass pieces. The white die cut window frame was attached around the window and I embossed the background w/ a Cuttlebug folder. The sentiment was also die cut and attached on top of my 4.25 x 5.50 card.
Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a great week!

On my first card, I stamped the cone on white card stock and the ice cream on white which I splattered w/ pink ink and a water brush. Sort of a peppermint ice cream look. After I cut them out, I added stickles on the ice cream for an added sprinkles look. The hot pink paper was embossed and the sentiment was stamped w/ the pink ink and cut out. The finished card is 4.25 x 5.50.

Congrats to Silke (silli) FS327! She has such a big, beautiful gallery that it was hard to choose just one! I finally settled on the layout of her Penny Black card, but I noticed she has quite a few cards w/ a purple & green color combo and I really like that, so those are the colors I chose. I kept the layout and punched sides, but I changed the colors, used different images and changed the theme from Christmas to western.
The images are form DRS Designs. To begin, I sponged the green inks across the bottom of white card stock and the purple, blue-violets across the top. The cowboy garb was stamped on part of it and cut out. The rest became the layer behind the image. I used a southwest border punch down both sides of the dk purple/violet panel. The main part of the sentiment was die cut and the “Y’all” part was stamped and punched w/ the smallest one of a multi tag punch.I stamped the accessories on the white panel and attached the fussy cut hat and boot and added some shading w/ copic markers. The finished card is 5.50 x 4.25.
Congrats again, Silke, enjoy your week! Thanks so much for stopping by!

The images are all from DRS Designs. After stamping & coloring the baby giraffe & design dot (background) w/ Copics, I added a double mat behind the giraffe and embossed either side w/ a button border. The sentiment flag & yellow flag were die cut and I embossed just one button on each. A little pink bow finished my 4.25 x 5.50 card.
