For the Splitcoast Inspiration Challenge (IC658), we are to chose a souvenir from our state or country. So I chose my home state of Texas since I have stamps for that state. And as everyone knows, Texans are pretty proud of their state. Remember the old saying...”Don’t ask a man if he’s from Texas. If he is, he’ll tell you. If he’s not, you’ll just embarrass him.” I was inspired by THIS postcard depicting the town where I grew up..though I was a little disappointed they spelled it wrong  😕 

To make my Corpus Christi (aka: Sparkling City by the Sea) skyline card, I made a bg w/ Brushos then die cut the silhouette skyline. I used another skyline die that had a bridge (because Corpus has the big Bay Bridge) & added a piece of it to the right side. I also die cut the moon & stars & the Stars word to insert it into the greeting. The inside of the card has the “Deep in the Heart of Texas” part. Now all you fellow Texans (& a few who want to be, lol) will be singing that song. You’re welcome!! 


Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a great weekend, y’all! 

Supplies:

Stamps: Deadbeat Designs (greeting)
Paper: Staples 110# white, water color, small strips of teal
Ink: VersaFine onyx
Accessories: MFT Stars & Wishes/Count the Stars dies, Memory Box silhouette skyline die, Recollections constellations dies, Momenta skyline dies, black detail embossing powder

Congrats to Mary, the newest Featured Stamper (FS596) on Splitcoast! She has lovely gallery & I chose THIS to case. I kept the Friend & flower theme & layout, but I used different colors, die cuts instead of stamps & a circle opening instead of an oval.

The colors on my flowers came about when I was refilling some Copics the other day. I noticed the inside of some of the caps were a total mess so I poured a little 91% isopropyl alcohol into them & thought it was a shame to waste all that color. So I poured it out onto a white piece of card stock. I liked the way it looked so I used it for the flowers & greeting. The lg circle burst was die cut into the white & a turquoise layer put behind. Then all I had to do was arrange the flowers, add a few sequins & some Copic tinted crystals. I will mention in case any of you have trouble (like I do) getting the letters straight…I left the letters in the die, added tiny dots of glue to the backsides, then turned the die over onto the c/s & pressed thru the die holes to release. Worked like a charm!

Here’s a look at the inside. I used the negative of one of the flowers as a stencil. 

Thanks so much for stopping by!

My card is also for the Splitcoast Inspiration Challenge (IC657) & THIS was my inspiration.

To make my clean & simple card, I put the circular greeting into my Misti, stamped it, colored in the letter then over stamped it. I die cut the 1 line of the square cut out die then cut the black strips & colored the rainbow colors behind the openings. The little sun & clouds were die cut & a few sequins added.

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