We have a lovely site for the Splitcoast Inspiration Challenge (IC689) this week. And I was really taken with the items on THIS page. I really like the almost magical colors.

To make my fantasy scene, I stamped the different toadstools, masking a little here & there, then colored them. I did my out of the box along the top and added the panel w/ the colored tree slice behind it. The extra toadstool & little frog were fussy cut & added.  I thought a couple of dragonflies would fit in so I added those, as well.

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

Thanks so much for stopping by!

A big congrats to Susan, the Newest Featured Stamper on Splitcoast! She has a fabulous gallery & I chose THIS to case. I kept the bird, layout & big letters, but used different images & dies & made a Wrinkle Free Distress background.

After using the Distress inks to make my bg, I colored & fussy cut the Bird & Cat. I did my big letters a little differently..I die cut them out of more of the bg, outlined them w/ black & added a white version underneath. Now I don’t know if this cat thinks the bird is lunch or if he’s asking the bird to get him some lunch, lol. But I suspect the latter. I watched a funny video where some people caught their parrot ordering stuff by using Alexa. Birds are pretty smart!

It’s my turn to host the Splitcoast Featured Stamper Challenge (FS624) so a big congrats to Marge! She has an absolute fabulous gallery & for my first card I chose THIS card of Marge’s. I liked the circle w/ the heart  inside & coffee theme, so I kept those. But I used different images & dies & a different layout.

After coloring & die cutting this cute owl, I die cut the royal & turquoise pieces. On the big banner, I had to use my die resizing technique to make it longer. The hearts were also die cut & added along w/ the greeting.

Here’s the inside & the Copics I used.

My second card was inspired by THIS card of Marge’s. I liked the different scenes inside the circles so I kept that. But I have way more circles & different images & colors.

After die cutting the stitched circle bg, I colored & die cut the little images & more circles out of a couple of black & white pieces of dp. I added a larger red-violet layer & let it show thru on a lot of circles. It originally was a deep rosy pink so I sponged on some picked raspberry Distress ink to darken the color.

Here’s the inside & Copics I used.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
