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.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

It’s my turn to host the FS Challenge so a big congrats to Virginia, the newest Featured Stamper (FS481) on Splitcoast! Wow! She has one awesome gallery & there are many I wanted to case, but I really liked THIS one in particular. I loved the gold embossing on vellum and the flowers so I kept those, but I used different images, added a die cut for half of the greeting & a gold striped washi tape border.

For my card, I gold embossed the flowers & half of the greeting on a piece of vellum I die cut using a pierced rectangle die. I colored it first on the backside w/ Copics, but I couldn’t quite get it dark enough, so I carefully added more color to front side, trying to stay away from the gold embossing. I attached to a same size piece of white card stock & added the Wishing word die cut out of gold mirror board.

On the larger white layer, after die cutting it, I attached strips of gold foil stripe washi tape. When I got the corners, I used scissors to mitre the corners. A few gold embossed, colored & fussy cut  blossoms were added here & there.

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

Today’s Free For All Challenge (F4A329) is teal & red. My teal is slightly on the turq side (I’m down to scraps of true teal..need to get some!) & my red is slightly on the vermillion side because it went better w/ the shade of teal.

Since it’s getting close to the end of the school year & a lot of people like to make cards for those special teachers. This also continues the DRS Challenge from yesterday to use a die cut. My original intent was to use the Owl & the Open Bible & then I thought, what goes w/ books? Reading glasses! Around here, anyway, because I have terrible eyesight. Then I pulled out the Teacher Tools & saw that the stump the owl was sitting on, matched up just about perfectly w/ the pencil cup in other image. If I had done it before hand, I would have masked the apple, but since the owl was already done, I just masked him & did an extra apple to add on top. The book was stamped twice & I used a Micron pen to scribble the “writing” & popped up the extra image to give it some dimension.

The teal bg was embossed w/ an apple folder & the Thanks word was die cut once out of the vermillion & once out of white & double stacked a little offset. The glasses were die cut & I put some thin plastic behind them to simulate the lenses.
Here’s a look at the inside & below it are the Copic colors I used.
