Posts Tagged ‘Splitcoast Weekly Favorite’



First of all, if you live along the Texas coast, I’m truly sorry for all you’re going through. I grew up in Corpus Christi & lived in Houston a long time. If New Orleans is shaped like a cereal bowl, then Houston is a flat rock w/ bayous running all thru it. We lived thru many a flood there (and lots of bad hurricanes!) but nothing like this. I’ve been calling all my relatives in TX to check on them. Thankfully, so far, they’re all ok.  And now…a big Congrats to Chris, the newest Featured Stamper (FS552)! She has a fabulous gallery & after much oohing & aahing, I chose THIS to case. I kept the layout but turned it on its side & used different images, different colors & made mine a Halloween card.

I wanted a gradient color behind the Oct 31 square, so I first colored that using Copics, then put it into my Misti &  stamped it several times to get a good dark impression. I fussy cut it then popped it up a bit on a larger gradient square then onto a black square. The Spider Webs were white embossed on black & I added a couple of gradient strips down the side. The funky edge is actually the left over from a die cut border. I liked it better than the die cut so there you go. I finished by stamping just the word Halloween & added a punched spider.

You’ll notice on the inside pic below, that the main greeting is upside down. Apparently my Halloween card was playing trick or treat w/ me & turned itself upside down when I stamped it. So I just made it part of the “trick” &  put the Trick or Treat on the other half. Since the card was all finished &  glued down, I couldn’t just take it apart.  Under the tricky inside are the Copics I used.


Thanks so much for stopping by!

For today’s Inspiration Challenge (IC612) on Splitcoast, I was inspired by THIS picture. I wish I had an image of Snoopy but I don’t. But it reminded me of this tree & the pile of leaves images I have so I used them.

To make my fall card, I sponged  distress inks onto white c/s then stamped the tree & added some white highlights. The moon part was stamped on a separate piece of white & fussy cut. I added a thin white & a wider black layer then attached a white frame on top. The greeting was stamped across the bottom ( I forgot it was retired, but I still like it:) The pile of leaves was fussy cut & I added a couple of little punched pumpkins.

Today’s Ways to Use It Challenge (WT649) on Splitcoast is Domestic Inspiration…be inspired by something in your home. Whaaaaaaaat? I’m in the process of moving. What isn’t already boxed is waiting to be boxed. My home resembles nothing so much as a fire sale. But I still have some pictures so I was inspired by this (you can see the picture in the lower right in front of the card below). 

In fact, we were the “parents” of Odie (the bird) for almost 27 years until his passing a few years ago. DRS Designs named the parrot image Odie Pretty Bird after him. Pretty Bird was his favorite thing to say..especially if he was misbehaving. And he would from time to time, look you in the eye & lie to you, lol. “Odie, did you do this?” He’d shake his head & repeat “no, no, no”. We called it his SOB defense, as in Some Other Bird did it. I miss that little character every day!

Anyway, after stamping &  coloring Pretty Bird Odie  &  the Palm Tree &  flowers, I fussy cut them all.  On the square inside the popped up frame, I stamped a portion of the Flamingo scene &  colored it. Then everything was arranged on top w/ just enough room for the greeting. 

Here’s the inside & the Copic I used.
