A big congrats to Holly, the newest Featured Stamper (FS509) on Splitcoast! And a big Howdy to a fellow Texan..yeehaw! Holly has such a big, beautiful gallery & after much browsing, I chose THIS to case. I kept the layout (but flipped it) & used similar colors, but I used different images w/ leaves instead of a wreath & some cord instead of ribbon.

The leaves were stamped on a leftover piece of Wrinkle Free Distress background done on water color paper, then fussy cut. The 2 rusty brown strips were stamped w/ a woodgrain bg & die cut. I wound the gold cord into a wreath like shape & attached the leaves on top. Pretty clean & simple!

Here’s a look at the inside.

Today’s Color Challenge (CC605) on Splitcoaststampers, is a collection of wonderful fall colors w/ the dessert of using a leaf or two.

I used a bunch of left over pieces of white linen & plain white card stock. On the small linen rectangle, I used a rainbow pad (that happened to have the right colors) to ink the greeting (sneak peek of a new item!) & stamped it. I used the same ink pad to brayer the partial panel on the left & the large frame bg then arranged all the panels together. I die cut the solid leaves out of more brayered bg & the vein overlay out of more white linen. All in all, pretty quick..especially for me!

Here’s the inside w/ another new greeting to be released soon!

Today’s Clean & Simple Challenge (CAS399) asks us to spook out the gallery w/ a Halloween card. I think these Zombie images are pretty darn spooky! And fitting..since they film The Walking Dead in my area. So far, I’m just not seeing a way out for those non-zombie folks. But it does remind me of a joke I read…”if the zombie apocalypse ever happens, I’m going to Costco..they have concrete walls, years of supplies & you have to have a membership card to get in”. Yep..that’s where I’m heading!

I picture  these zombies as kind of greenish gray so that’s how I colored this Zombie Gal. Since the background is also a shadowy gray, I wanted some color so I added the orange to her shirt & the spooky moon (which was stamped separately & fussy cut). The bg was sponged in using the pumice ink & a cloud stencil I made using a piece of acetate (from a piece of packaging) & a pair of scallop scissors. I made it out of the plastic because I wanted it to hold up & also so I could wipe it off. Since it was made years ago, so far, so good! I used the same ink to stamp the grass. 

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