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.

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.

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!

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.

Julie Warner –


Well, it turns out my first post today was for a CAS Challenge last week, lol. I got lost in the Challenge list and picked the wrong one. This is for the challenge that’s actually today…(CAS244) Tearing or Distressing. While it may not look totally clean & simple, it actually is CAS. For my pink/green bg, I quickly (very quickly) pounced/sponged 4 colors of ink then stamped the image w/ Versafine on top. It’s die cut w/ a long rectangle and I added a bit of a white marker and stickles to the snowy parts of the pinecones. The black grid looking bg is a long ago leftover from a TLC challenge (TLC235) painted grid. This is also for one of the Hope You Can Cling To Challenges…HYCCT1326, Mixed Media.

I tore the side of the long strip using a tearing ruler (makes it so easy). I attached it to a left over strip then attached the narrow little strip I tore off. I added the greeting on the card front and a few sequins cause you can never have too much bling! The finished card is 4.25 x 5.50.

Thanks so much for stopping by! You still have a few days to enter the DRS Thursday Challenge. This week it’s Pumpkins, so all you need is a pumpkin on your creation & DRS images are not required, so head on over!
