The Clean & Simple Challenge on Splitcoast (CAS477), was to use Poppies in honor of Anzac Remembrance Day. It’s a day in Australia & New Zealand similar to our Memorial or Armistice Days. 

I love poppies & my card is made up of a lot of leftovers so it went pretty fast. The poppies were die cut out of leftover watercolor bg, the Smile & brick bg were die cut out of leftover strips. I think the only new piece was the white linen bg. I used a semi-circle die (Blueprints 21) to cut out the frame around the poppy & added a few stamped & die cut sequin images.

Here’s a look at the inside.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Stamps: My Favorite Things – Meant to Sparkle

Such a fun Technique Challenge (TLC683) today! And such a great idea from Sabrina…to trace & doodle your stencils, or make a stencil by using a die cut. After looking thru my stencils & not liking what I had for this technique, I remembered this wonderful Umbrella Man die that I have not used. I thought all the openness of the die would lend itself to doodling.

I die cut the umbrella man out of copy paper, traced it & then added all the doodled lines. I used just a few light colors of Copics here & there then added the greeting. A couple of layers & a few raindrops & done.
Here’s a look at the inside & below it are the Copics I used.

Today’s challenges on Splitcoast, TLC677 & CAS468 were combined for this card. The Technique was use a paper towel roll as a painting tool & the Clean & Simple was to have a bird.

So for the technique challenge, I took the cardboard center of a paper towel roll & cut a piece off then cut it up the middle & used only about half of it. After rolling this piece much tighter (for a smaller circumference) I taped it the slit the bottom as per the technique. After stamping w/ the different colors of paint, I let it dry. It wasn’t quite as pretty as I hoped it would be, so I just a section of it behind the toucan. The toucan was colored w/ Copics & die cut. 

Here are the Copics I used for the toucan.
