Today’s Ways to Use It Challenge (WT649) on Splitcoast is Domestic Inspiration…be inspired by something in your home. Whaaaaaaaat? I’m in the process of moving. What isn’t already boxed is waiting to be boxed. My home resembles nothing so much as a fire sale. But I still have some pictures so I was inspired by this (you can see the picture in the lower right in front of the card below). 

In fact, we were the “parents” of Odie (the bird) for almost 27 years until his passing a few years ago. DRS Designs named the parrot image Odie Pretty Bird after him. Pretty Bird was his favorite thing to say..especially if he was misbehaving. And he would from time to time, look you in the eye & lie to you, lol. “Odie, did you do this?” He’d shake his head & repeat “no, no, no”. We called it his SOB defense, as in Some Other Bird did it. I miss that little character every day!

Anyway, after stamping &  coloring Pretty Bird Odie  &  the Palm Tree &  flowers, I fussy cut them all.  On the square inside the popped up frame, I stamped a portion of the Flamingo scene &  colored it. Then everything was arranged on top w/ just enough room for the greeting. 

Here’s the inside & the Copic I used.

A big congrats to Sharon, the newest Featured Stamper (FS549) on Splitcoast! She has such a big beautiful gallery, it was hard to chose just one. After much browsing, I chose THIS to case. I kept the beach/seashell theme & most of the layout, but I used different images, different colors & moved the shells from the center to around the center.
After stamping & coloring the flamingo scene, I die cut the white frame, added the greeting & some curvy pierced lines on the lower left. The shells were all fussy cut & added around the circle opening.

These are the Copic I used to color everything.

Thanks  so much for stopping by!

A big congrats to Donna, the newest Featured Stamper on Splitcoast (FS536)! After much browsing, I chose THIS to case. I admit my case doesn’t look a lot (really anything) like her card, lol. I literally focused (tongue in cheek) on the camera & my card just kind of grew from there. After I had the camera die cut, I thought it went really well w/ the greeting, then I needed something to have a picture of…and that’s how it went.

So after I stamped & colored the flamingo scene, I added the die cut frames, the camera & split the greeting w/ the first part on the little flag & the rest on the lower frame.

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


Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a wonderful Mother’s Day!
