It’s my turn to host the Splitcoast Inspiration Challenge (IC661) & I chose Brit+Co. I love their colorful displays & I chose the picture below for my inspiration.



To make my card, I stamped the different cactus plants, colored them & the large one had a matching die but the 2 smaller were fussy cut. I used an stitch arch die to cut the window opening & to make the frame around the opening. Then I put a piece of watercolor background behind it. The greeting was stamped on a stitched tag die cut & I used my die resizing technique to shorten the tag.

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

The Special this month is the Sweet Gum  stamp & Sympathy die – 50% off! 

For my clean & simple card, I made a water color background using Distress reinkers, on some lightweight watercolor paper. There wasn’t a science to it..I just floated in some fall colors & let them mingle & run until I was happy w/ it then I used a heat tool to dry it & stop the colors from running any more. I put it into my Misti and stamped the Sweet Gum branch randomly. Originally, I was going to fussy cut some of the branches to use, but I decided I liked it just as is. Since the paper was fairly lightweight, I glued it to a piece of 110# card stock then die cut it.  The greeting was stamped & I attached it to the card.

Here’s a look at the inside.

Please be sure to comment on all the blogs..it is much appreciated & also increases your chances of winning!

Congrats to Jenny, the newest Featured Stamper (FS599) on Splitcoast! She has such a wonderful gallery & I chose THIS to case. I kept the sunset bg w/ a silhouette image but I used different images, a corvette instead of a crane in the foreground & changed it from vertical to horizontal.

To make my Ocean Drive card, I painted watercolors onto the solid background image & stamped it onto white card stock. After I dried it, I placed it in my Misti & stamped the silhouette palms (several times) using VersaClair ink then added white highlights w/ a gel pen. I drew a few seagulls w/ a Copic multiliner pen.The white frame was  die cut & stamped with the Happy Birthday squiggle frame. The corvette was stamped, colored & die cut w/ the matching die. I made the corvette yellow because my dad used to have a yellow corvette & he loved it! Personally, I preferred the Mustang convertible he had before that, lol. 

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