For the Splitcoast Inspiration Challenge (IC645), Angie chose Cuddle + Kind. A really cute place w/ a big heart. I chose THIS as my inspiration because I knew I had a similar greeting. I didn’t have a similar cute reindeer that I could use so I used a pig w/ a big grin. 


Normally, this pig image has a party hat along w/ a balloon but since I fussy cut him, I cut off the party hat. The small balloon was stamped again w/ lt blue ink, colored & fussy cut. All the other balloons were made by die cutting 2 sizes of balloons in a piece of copy paper & using the negative as a stencil. After I sponged the Distress inks thru the stencil I added some Wink of Stella to some of them. The greeting was stamped at the bottom & I used Copics to make the shadow underneath. A few grad caps & some drawn balloon strings & I was done!

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

It’s my turn to host the Inspiration Challenge (IC644) on Splitcoast, and I went with a site suggested by my friend Kia…Carlyle Avenue. There was a lot of very interesting stuff there but ultimately, I went with THIS. I really liked the gold & the textured look of the wall behind the shadowbox.

To make my card, I started by using an embossing folder on the piece of kraft c/s then I sponged a little of lightning black ink over the high points. I wanted a little more gold, so I also went over it using a metallic gold Prismacolor pencil. Then I used the fringe scissors all along the edges & roughed up the fringe a bit.
All of the dragonflies & daisies were embossed w/ gold & fussy cut. I used Prismacolors on the 2 kraft daisies & left the white one uncolored. The white circular frame was die cut & the flowers added in & under.

Here’s a look at the inside. The greeting was stamped w/ the lightning black so it has a nice metallic look in person.

I made this for the Splitcoaststampers Fan Club April Christmas Challenge! I’ve been having so much fun being a part of the challenge this year & the bonus is I’ll have a bunch of Christmas cards finished in plenty of time for Christmas this year. You’ll need to be Fan Club member but that’s easy…just click the blue link to find out how.
I really love these Birdbrain images & I really miss From the Heart Stamps. And I’m so thankful I bought some of these digi stamps while they were still available. After I put the digital image in a word doc, I typed the greeting & printed it out on Neenah. The little holly sprig & Christmas lights were stamped using some old clear stamps from Studio G. Then I colored everything & added a little glitter to the glass rims. The background was stamped using a retired ODBD image. Distress oxide cracked pistachio was stamped onto pine green c/s so the pattern of the image is actually the lighter color.

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