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.

For the Inspiration site (IC643) on Splitcoast, Anne chose Signals. I spent quite a bit of time browsing, but kept coming back to THIS. I just love the colors & cute little piggies. 
To make my little piggies card, I stamped little Miss Piggy on the right & then used the mirror image technique to stamp Mr. Piggy. After coloring, I fussy cut both & made little checked outfits for both. For the background, I put the Checkerboard Bg into my Misti & stamped the bottom 2 or 3 times to get it really dark, then moved the c/s & stamped the middle section a little lighter & the top section was stamped w/o reinking. The greeting was rearranged a bit to fit between the piggy pair.

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

Such a cute site for the Splitcoast Inspiration Challenge (IC642)!After a lot of browsing, I chose THIS for my inspiration. I liked the sweet little duck & all the Easter eggs & I needed an Easter card so it was perfect.

For my Easter card today, the baby ducks were stamped, colored & die cut, and I had to do a little out of the box on the grass along the way. The large green bg started out white but I sponged Distress & Distress oxide inks onto it, splattered it & also stamped the Splatter Bg on it in blues, greens & finally white. The white splatter was heat embossed w/ white powder & I left an area at the bottom w/o too much on it so I could add the greeting. I was going for that speckled egg look on the bg. 

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