Happy October! It’s the first Thursday of the month so it’s time for the Divine Divas Inspiration Challenge! Our inspiration pic today is from

My version is a very literal interpretation of the inspiration picture. I started with some speckled ivory c/s and masked off the squares in a checkerboard pattern. On the corner squares, I sponged on tea dye Distress Ink. On the remaining squares, I used antique linen Distress Ink.  I stamped over the squares with one side of the paper cube (Stampendous) with the same inks.


DDIC13 Fall is in the Air 3533a2 The leafy branch (PTI) was inked with Really Rust and stamped across the left corner. I added some detail on the stems with a brown maker. The scroll (FP) was stamped down the right side with the rust ink.

I had my sewing machine out and thought some real stitching might look nice, so I stitched around the edge and also around all the squares using rust colored thread. The sentiment (SG) was stamped in two of the squares.

The trees (LYTB) in the center square, were inked w/ sienna and chocolate inks. I used a tree leaf image (Stampendous) and inked it w/ the Kpad to get the varied fall leaf color. After cutting with a Spellbinder square nestie, I left the die on top and sponged in the ground. The rust layer was cut with a larger square. The dark brown layer is part of a paint chip. Finished card measures 5.25 ” square.

Thanks so much for stopping by! I know the rest of the Divas will have some fantastic art for you, so be sure to visit them. We’d love for you to join in on our challenge and if you upload to Splitcoast, please put DDIC in your keywords.

Love the sketch challenge today at SCS! I tweaked it a bit by making the center square a little bigger than the two on the sides.

I stamped the same flower (AL) onto the, c.chip and dp and cut them out. I snipped the lines on a few of the petals so I could pop them up a bit.

My three squares, 2 out of dp and the larger center one out of the, were cut w/ square nesties. The long brown rect. they’re attached to was cut w/ a nestie long rectangle that I extended just a little to reach all the way across. It and the three squares are on foam tape, as well as the flowers.

I attached two pieces of the dot ribbon to a wire clip w/ brads. The wire clip was originally silver but I changed the color by first going over it w/ a lt blue Sharpie. I decided I didn’t want it to be so shiny, so I then went over it w/ a white Permopaque marker. The lt blue still shows thru, but the shine is really dulled down.

The greeting (PTI) was stamped on the layer w/ the dk brown chalk ink and the panel was edged w/ a dk brown maker.

This card is also my entry in the Spellbinders Gallery Contest and the 2RedBananas blog hop contest. For this I used the same sketch as Jami’s “Lucky Dog” , Jeanette’s ribbon treatment from “Joy” (2nd card on 2/24/09), and the color combo of Teresa’s “Gunther’s Greetings” scrapbook page.

Love those cakes!It’s Inspiration Challenge day at SCS and Steph really picked a great one. If I have time, I want to try another one. For this one, I chose Great Gatsby, it’s on page 1, last one in the lower right corner.

I know the main image is a tree (CHF), but to me, it looks a lot like a tennis racket, lol. Too bad all these images are borrowed and they don’t get to live here.

The tree was stamped w/ black then dots (PTI) were stamped on top w/ red. It’s cut out and the edges are lightly sponged. Ditto for the sentiment.

The bg was stamped w/ more dots and circles (PTI) then layered onto a swiss dot bugged panel which was edged w/ a red marker.

The sentiment has black dots around it and is layered on black w/ a small piece of folded ribbon attached underneath.
