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.

My card today is on the very CAS side of things. Don’t let that fool you..I’m sure it takes longer for me to do CAS than to do a “normal” card. For the most part, I have trouble w/ CAS. The images are really cute but I need more practice w/ these type of images. The hearts were stamped on the linen bg & I thought it needed more so I outlined them w/ a glue pen & sprinkled on some glitter. For the Love word, I sponged Distress inks from left to right then stamped & glittered it. I found a piece of patterned paper just the right size & colors so I used it to back the white & to die cut the swirly.

Here’s a look at the inside.

Today’s Ways to Use It Challenge (WT605) is ways to use Umbrellas. It reminded me of this Wedding Shower card I made a while back & totally forgot to post!  double-umbrella-happiness-06183
I stamped the little love birds, greeting & umbrellas & colored them w/ Copics. I also did a third umbrella on a separate piece to cut out & pop up on top of the love birds. After dry embossing the panel, I thought it still looked a little empty in areas so I took out a black Micron pen & doodled the vines/flowers in the opposite corners then added a Candi dot to the upper left.

Here are the Copics I used.
