For the Splitcoast Inspiration Challenge (IC645), Angie chose Cuddle + Kind. A really cute place w/ a big heart. I chose THIS as my inspiration because I knew I had a similar greeting. I didn’t have a similar cute reindeer that I could use so I used a pig w/ a big grin. 


Normally, this pig image has a party hat along w/ a balloon but since I fussy cut him, I cut off the party hat. The small balloon was stamped again w/ lt blue ink, colored & fussy cut. All the other balloons were made by die cutting 2 sizes of balloons in a piece of copy paper & using the negative as a stencil. After I sponged the Distress inks thru the stencil I added some Wink of Stella to some of them. The greeting was stamped at the bottom & I used Copics to make the shadow underneath. A few grad caps & some drawn balloon strings & I was done!

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

Such a fun Technique Challenge (TLC683) today! And such a great idea from Sabrina…to trace & doodle your stencils, or make a stencil by using a die cut. After looking thru my stencils & not liking what I had for this technique, I remembered this wonderful Umbrella Man die that I have not used. I thought all the openness of the die would lend itself to doodling.

I die cut the umbrella man out of copy paper, traced it & then added all the doodled lines. I used just a few light colors of Copics here & there then added the greeting. A couple of layers & a few raindrops & done.

Today’s Clean & Simple Challenge (CAS429) on Splitcoast asks us to “get techy” & show/use some kind of technology. I’m sure a whole lot of technology went into the space program.
In fact, growing up The Jetsons was one my fave cartoons & I couldn’t wait to grow up & have Rosie be my robot maid or have a flying space car or dinner from an electronic dumbwaiter in the wall. Hmmm…I’m still waiting!  But I do have George Jetson’s boy Elroy & his dog Astro on my card. The image was stamped, colored & fussy cut to add to a bg I made ages ago & near as I can remember, it was sponged w/ the distress inks then stenciled w/ white pigment ink. I stamped the image again on this bg in order to have the stars, which I colored in & added Wink of Stella. The cut out circle was added back w/ the greeting on top. 

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