For the Inspiration Challenge (IC688) on Splitcoast, we have Global Accessorize as our site. I was inspired by THIS picture. I liked the teal w/ the black & white polka dots.

Maybe I shouldn’t have gotten so wrapped up with this particular picture because I couldn’t find any black paper w/ white polka dots. Unless they were really big & I wanted smaller. Soooooo…after die cutting a black piece of c/s I used my Japanese screw punch & 2 sizes of bits to drill the holes. I will mention that I first used an embossing folder that has 2 sizes of dots so all I had to do was drill out the embossed dots. The azaleas are a 2 part image & the solid part was inked w/ the Distress inks & spritzed before stamping then the outline part was stamped on top. This image does have a matching die but I don’t have it yet, so I fussy cut it. 

Here’s a look at the inside.

For the Inspiration Challenge on Splitcoast this week, I was inspired by THIS picture on the Plow & Hearth site Brenda chose. I turned the rain boots into cowboy boots & hydrangeas into roses, but otherwise they are the same, lol.

What a week it’s been around here..we’ve had so much rain & thunderstorms, I’m really glad now that I bought a pair of rubber rain boots. Every night I have to slosh thru the front yard to bring in the bird feeders. If I don’t, then I have to spend a couple of hours searching thru the woods for them because the raccoons will get them & drag them off into the woods (ask me how I know). Then I slosh thru the yard every morning to put them back. I also don’t want the bear that got into everyone’s trash a couple of week ago to come down the drive after the feeders. But my rain boots, while they have roses on them, are nowhere as stylin’ as these! 

To make my card, I stamped the big rose, masked it, then stamped the smaller one twice. After masking the roses, I stamped the (new!) boot, masked it, then stamped the one behind it. Everything was colored, then I did a little out of the box when I die cut the panel. The greeting was stamped & colored & I added a die cut swirly (it reminded me of a lasso) & a fussy cut hat (new!). Then I added glitter glue & a few crystals. 

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

It’s my turn to host the Splicoast Featured Stamper Challenge (FS597). A big congrats to Selma, the newest Featured Stamper! She has a fabulous gallery full of beautiful creations & after much browsing, I chose THIS to case. I kept the layout & field of daisies, but made mine smaller, left off the outer punched layer & used a different greeting.
I happened to have (& hadn’t used before) the same mini daisy dies so I die cut all the petals & leaves & added just a touch of color. I die cut some grass & used punches for the butterflies, bird & fence, Polka dot Candi dots were added to the flower centers. 

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Supplies:

Stamps: Hero Arts (greeting)
Paper: Staples 110# white, teal, turquoise, green
Ink: Memento tuxedo black
Accessories: Spellbinders A2 matting basics A & B dies, Sizzix mini daisy dies, Cheery Lynn grass die, picket fence, butterflies & birds punches, Candi dots
