For the Inspiration Challenge (IC651) on Splitcoast, Brenda chose a lovely site & I chose THIS for my inspiration. 
I started by die cutting the circle out then making a watercolor bg on it & splattering it w/ white paint. I put it back together & put the whole front panel into my Misti & I had to stamp the silhouette trees several times to get them dark enough. Part of a greeting was added & a die cut Wish. I used a white marker to fill in the moon & add the sparkling lines to the “stars”. A little Wink of Stella was added to the moon & stars, as well.

Here’s a look at the inside. 

Thanks so much for stopping by!

It’s my turn to host today’s Inspirations Challenge (IC631) on Splitcoast!  I was inspired by THIS & THIS so I combined the two. 

I have a winter card using this fun, fun, fun Winter Wonder Words bg. When my unmounted stamp arrived, it still had a line across the top (from the edge of the plate) & I left it. I don’t always ink it, but I did this time. I thought it made the perfect division between the upper & lower part. I inked it w/ the stormy sky ink & stamped it multiple times, but only used the line across the top.  The Warm Wishes was stamped in the upper area w/ the majestic blue ink to make it a little more prominent than the lower bg. 

I came across a piece of royal blue c/s that I had embossed all over w/ a sparkly powder. I don’t know why I did this or when, but I thought it might look good for a big frosty snowman. After I die cut him, I left the die in place & went over some parts w/ a white marker & the others w/ a cobalt blue Copic. Then I added a die cut piece of thin foam behind him to elevate him a bit. The larger blue mittens were punched & added. A narrow strip of blue glitter paper was added down the left & some punched snowflakes here & there.

 
Here’s a look a the inside. I went over the greeting & mittens w/ a blue Wink of Stella.

Flourish Wishes cu 08088
Today’s Inspiration Challenge (IC532) is a page of 100 color combinations. Since they’re all together on the page, it’s impossible to link to just one but here’s a picture of it. I chose #85 Classic Metallics.


Flourish Wishes 08089
Usually, I go with the bright, vibrant colors, but occasionally I like to work with neutral tones…sort of a palette cleanse thing. To make my card, I used part of an Ornate Corner Tile to make my central design. I put it in my Misti & stamped it 4 times on the corners w/ Memento. After coloring w/ Copics I over stamped it w/ Versafine. If you look at the picture below, you’ll see why. The bottom two have been over stamped..the top two have not. Big difference!
Flourish Wishes example 08076
I did a little out of the box to remove some of the white background & added a black square layer. The design was stamped & colored again 4 times & I fussy cut those out to add under the squares. A greeting was added below on separate layers & I added a black/metallic gold Candi button in the center of my design.

These are the Copics I used.
