It’s my pleasure to host this week’s Inspiration Challenge (IC687)on Splitcoast! So we’re headed over to All Posters. I really love colorful posters..especially vintage ones, and for my card, I was inspired by THIS poster. 

I just rec’d these super cute new gnome images & couldn’t wait to take them for a test drive. This card really wasn’t hard & it’s all on one layer. There are only 4 images  (besides the greeting) the gnome w/ toadstools, the snail w/ toadstool, the rocks & the tall trees. The only one I masked was the gnome in order to stamp the trees behind him. Everything else is just coloring & I did all the background coloring first before I colored the images. 

Here’s a look at the inside & below it are the Copics I used (the bottom right one is an E31).

Thanks so much for stopping by!

For the Inspiration Challenge, Stacy chose U.S. Mint Sheets. I’ve always had a thing for postage stamps & I have a good size collection of mostly used stamps. I just love the artwork on stamps! I chose a stamp that I actually have & I found it on the site, but since then, I guess they sold out & it doesn’t show up anymore but HERE it is.

My Tiffany lamp was gold embossed onto a polished stone bg I made using Copic refills, rubbing alcohol & a gold leaf marker. After embossing the lamp & the book, I fussy cut them & added them to a pine green layer w/ a long window cut out. I added a pale peach layer behind it & gold embossed the greeting. The little butterflies were punched out of some leftovers of the bg. Little strips of the green that I cut w/ postage stamp scissors were added around the green layer.

Here’s the inside:

It’s my turn to host the Splicoast Featured Stamper Challenge (FS597). A big congrats to Selma, the newest Featured Stamper! She has a fabulous gallery full of beautiful creations & after much browsing, I chose THIS to case. I kept the layout & field of daisies, but made mine smaller, left off the outer punched layer & used a different greeting.
I happened to have (& hadn’t used before) the same mini daisy dies so I die cut all the petals & leaves & added just a touch of color. I die cut some grass & used punches for the butterflies, bird & fence, Polka dot Candi dots were added to the flower centers. 

Thanks so much for stopping by!
