For the Splitcoast Inspiration Challenge (IC647), we have Replacements, LTD. as our site. It’s a beautiful site & I have used their wonderful replacement service in the past to fill in missing or broken pieces of china. They also helped me identify some crystal that belonged to my great grandmother. While I was browsing the casual china, I happened on THIS picture (also below). It looked like a Cinco de Mayo fiesta to me so I went w/ a southwest theme.


To make the serape on the side, I used two plaid images, which until you stamp them across each other, are just stripes. I inked the stripes using Tombow markers in red, yellow & green then colored a wide strip & used fringe scissors on it to make the lower border. The image was stamped, colored & die cut w/ a little out of the box to keep the boot tip & rope from being cut off. I used Prismacolor pencils to add the sunset colors behind the image. For the greeting, I stamped it once in the Morocco ink, moved it a tad & stamped it again in brown ink to get the slight shadow.

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

For my floral birthday card, I first stamped two of the largest  Summer Flower Pops, colored then die cut then w/ the matching die. On one, I trimmed it closer & removed all the background petals & popped it up a bit on top of the full flower. One of the smaller flowers was used for the center & I used the yellow Copic to color the (originally clear) frosted resin stone for the very center.  The white panel was masked down the left side & the Flower Corner stamped a couple of times & colored.  After die cutting the larger gray gingham background & a ribbon out of the same paper, I attached these & stamped the greeting

Here’s a look at the inside. I wanted to color the Flower Corner but didn’t want the color to go thru, so I die cut a piece of 22# paper, stamped it, then attached it to the inside. Below it are the Copics I used. 

Next stop is Vickie‘s Blog!  Please be sure to comment on all the DT Blogs..it will be so appreciated & also increase your chances of winning!

Knit Happens! Yes m’am,  it does…and if you like to have some wine while you knit..well..it won’t be pretty. Just sayin’. Anyway, these are the colors for today’s Color Challenge (CC624) on Splitcoast. Daffodil, garden green & blackberry. And it seems I have a slight aversion to the blackberry. It’s an odd color, hard to work with & harder to match. The only think that came to mind was this cute little digi & I figured I’d delegate the troublesome color to the ground area. 
After printing it out, I colored it then die cut it. The dk purple bg (closest I could come to the blackberry color) was embossed w/ a knit pattern folder & it was pretty much done.

Here’s a look at the inside & below it are the Copics I used. This is going to one of my knitty friends who also happens to like my cards 😛
