For the Splitcoast Inspiration Challenge (IC806), we’re headed to a watercolor Pinterest Board where I found THIS lovely portrait. I don’t have a child’s face image so I used Jacqueline, instead.

I put a piece of watercolor paper into my Misti & stamped her w/ Morning Mist versaclair’s a dk grey so it’s not as high contrast as black. I used some soft teal & soft peach watercolors & a lot of water to paint the panel. I didn’t even mix the was some that was left over in my palette & I liked the colors. When it dried, I stamped the greeting across the left bottom corner & used a pen to add the XOXO. In my head, I saw it as a stylized glamor portrait that the sender would autograph. 

On the teal mat, I stamped the mini square bg w/ a darker teal ink to give it a little visual texture.

Pssst..If you love these buildable floral sets w/ matching dies like I do, they are 20% off right now! (click the picture to take you there.)

A big congrats to Pat, the newest Featured Stamper (FS744) on Splitcoast! She has a lovely gallery & there were many I wanted to pick, but I went w/ THIS card for my case. I kept the CAS layout & split die cut, but used different stamps & dies & used a colorful panel & narrow frames behind & around my die cuts.

For my card, I used an inside slimline die for my linear panel, but instead of cutting from both ends, I cut 2 slits & inserted the die under it. I took a couple of pics to show you. On this pic, I penciled in a little wider than the die & used a Kraft knife to cut the 2 horizontal slits.

Now I positioned the die on top of the first section of the card, but under the band I created, then on top of the bottom section, as shown.

Instead of a solid color, I used a colorful leftover strip I made by using drops of dye reinkers on glossy paper then blowing thru a straw to make the inks move. I added partial cobalt blue frames around the die cuts because I thought it looked more finished this way.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

For the Splitcoast Inspiration Challenge (IC805) we’re headed to Pinterest Board where I was inspired by THIS picture. The color, sparkly glitter & sequins really caught my eye.

My card was really quick & easy. I pulled out 3 colors of dox inks & streaked them down the die cut white panel. Then I heat embossed, 1 color at a time, 3 different colors of glittery embossing powder. If the oxide inks were a little too dry after the first time embossing, I added a little Versamark over the top to finish the other 2 colors. The greeting was stamped & embossed w/ the darkest glitter powder (Desert Jewel) then a slightly larger teal circle was added underneath. Some sequins in different teals & greens were added to finish. This card REALLY has the sparkle going on!

Thanks so much for stopping by!
