For the Splitcoast Inspiration Challenge (IC658), we are to chose a souvenir from our state or country. So I chose my home state of Texas since I have stamps for that state. And as everyone knows, Texans are pretty proud of their state. Remember the old saying...”Don’t ask a man if he’s from Texas. If he is, he’ll tell you. If he’s not, you’ll just embarrass him.” I was inspired by THIS postcard depicting the town where I grew up..though I was a little disappointed they spelled it wrong  😕 

To make my Corpus Christi (aka: Sparkling City by the Sea) skyline card, I made a bg w/ Brushos then die cut the silhouette skyline. I used another skyline die that had a bridge (because Corpus has the big Bay Bridge) & added a piece of it to the right side. I also die cut the moon & stars & the Stars word to insert it into the greeting. The inside of the card has the “Deep in the Heart of Texas” part. Now all you fellow Texans (& a few who want to be, lol) will be singing that song. You’re welcome!! 


Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a great weekend, y’all! 

Supplies:

Stamps: Deadbeat Designs (greeting)
Paper: Staples 110# white, water color, small strips of teal
Ink: VersaFine onyx
Accessories: MFT Stars & Wishes/Count the Stars dies, Memory Box silhouette skyline die, Recollections constellations dies, Momenta skyline dies, black detail embossing powder

A big congrats to Bronwyn, the newest Featured Stamper (FS578) on Splitcoast! She has a wonderful gallery and after much browsing, I chose THIS to case. I kept the colors & layout but her little boy became the state of Texas and I changed the triangular spinner to a word art thingie (per the Technique Challenge TLC679) & instead of white stitch lines I used a barbed wire border.

I did the lines & coloring for the word art for the die cut Howdy per the Technique Challenge then colored the die cut Texas shape & did my best to match up the lower end of the point convergence & added a star at that point. The lt blue was dry embossed then I made a border using a barbed wire die. 

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

A big congrats to Cathy, the newest Featured Stamper on Splitcoast (FS419)! She has such a wonderful gallery and it was hard to chose just one. I finally went with THIS card to case. I kept the layout but flipped sides with the embellishment additions, used different images and made mine a birthday card instead of Christmas.

A while back, I used another Deep Red Stamps image ( a beautiful Chevelle) which I think they must have liked because they were kind enough to send me another image. Being a native Texan, this funny little cowboy really appealed to my sense of humor and I know he will be terrific for cards going to my family still in Texas. So I colored him, die cut using a little out of the box technique with a stitched rectangle, added a greeting and some more layers. I die cut the hat and made a lasso out of twine. I tell you, this ol’ cowpoke and the expression on the “fake” horse’s face just crack me up.

Here’s a peek at the inside and also the colors of Copics I used.
