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.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

A big congrats to Joyce, the newest Featured Stamper (FS626) on Splitcoast! She has a wonderful gallery & I chose THIS to case. I really liked the tree silhouette w/ the square behind it so I kept those. But I used die cuts instead of images, added some layers here & there & made mine a Christmas card.

This is one of those “very hard to photograph” cards because of the mirror gold paper. It’s so wonderful IRL, but the camera just can’t get it. The tree, snowflake, backing layers & snowdrift hills were all cut out of mirror gold. For the snowdrift hills I also used an embossing folder to add the snow dots. The Believe part of the greeting was gold embossed & the rest was stamped w/ twilight (navy) Versaclair ink. Yep, the Misti really came in handy for that!

Here’s a look at the inside. I used the negative part of the snowflake as stencil for the gold flakes down the side.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

It’s my pleasure to host this week’s Inspiration Challenge (IC687)on Splitcoast! So we’re headed over to All Posters. I really love colorful posters..especially vintage ones, and for my card, I was inspired by THIS poster. 

I just rec’d these super cute new gnome images & couldn’t wait to take them for a test drive. This card really wasn’t hard & it’s all on one layer. There are only 4 images  (besides the greeting) the gnome w/ toadstools, the snail w/ toadstool, the rocks & the tall trees. The only one I masked was the gnome in order to stamp the trees behind him. Everything else is just coloring & I did all the background coloring first before I colored the images. 

Here’s a look at the inside & below it are the Copics I used (the bottom right one is an E31).

Thanks so much for stopping by!
