For my sympathy card, I die cut the 2 turquoise panels, put the larger one into my Misti & stamped the Flower Corner & Leaf. Just a little white pencil was added in areas then I lined up the smaller turquoise panel & stamped the bottom part only of the same Flower Corner & also the Tiny Flower .  I added a narrow black mat under the horizontal panel & a portion of the Daisy Border die. A small black bow & a few rhinestones finished it. 

Here’s a look at the inside.

For the Inspiration site (IC643) on Splitcoast, Anne chose Signals. I spent quite a bit of time browsing, but kept coming back to THIS. I just love the colors & cute little piggies. 
To make my little piggies card, I stamped little Miss Piggy on the right & then used the mirror image technique to stamp Mr. Piggy. After coloring, I fussy cut both & made little checked outfits for both. For the background, I put the Checkerboard Bg into my Misti & stamped the bottom 2 or 3 times to get it really dark, then moved the c/s & stamped the middle section a little lighter & the top section was stamped w/o reinking. The greeting was rearranged a bit to fit between the piggy pair.

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

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.
