For the Splitcoast Inspiration Challenge (IC841), we’re visiting Virginia Living & their Pinterest Board where I found THIS picture of a pair of lovely earrings for my inspiration.

My mini slimline is really quick & easy. I die cut the white & teal panels w/ 2 sizes of the stitched mini slimline dies then used a triple stitched circle inset die to cut the trio of circles out. I found a scrap of a watercolor bg from some previous project & used the inset to cut three circles, then inset them into the openings. I put the panel into my Misti & stamped the greeting multiple times to get good coverage. I added a few clear dew drops (I added a bit of color on the back sides w/ Copics) for a little something extra. In order for the top of the letters to show a little more, I used a white Prismacolor pencil to add just a hint of outline on the parts that were stamped on the watercolor. The top white panel is popped up a bit.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Merry Christmas Eve! For the Splitcoast Inspiration Challenge (IC838), we’re visiting BlueBellGray & their Pinterest Board where I found THIS lovely pillow. I liked the watercolor look of it on the ends w/ the flowers toward the center. Mine turned out a little more purple than magenta, but I like it.

For my slimline card, I used Brushos but mixed the powder in a palette w/ water then floated in the purple/violets & pinkish reds in from each end of the 140# w/c paper. While it was drying, I stamped the flower on another piece of w/c paper  w/ fade out ink. I haven’t used it much & in my opinion, it really didn’t fade out in this just looks gray to me. I used the same color of mixed Brushos to paint the flowers, then die cut them & fussy cut the leaves. Some of the flowers were popped up & I used the Misti to split the stamped part of the greeting a bit in order to add the Wishes die cut below. A few gems finished it.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

It’s my pleasure to host the Splitcoast Featured Stamper Challenge (FS776) this week, so a big congrats to Jo Ann! She has a wonderful gallery & I chose THIS card to case. I kept the umbrella & watercolor bg, but used different dies, colors, layout & made mine a get well card.

My card started w/ a small piece of a leftover watercolor bg. It reminded me of a rainy day & I thought it would go well w/ my umbrella die & get well theme. I popped it up a bit & backed it w/ a lg pink layer. The white frame was made by die cutting it first w/ the stitched layer, then using a smaller die to cut out the center. It’s also popped up. I die cut the umbrella using a piece of white (for the narrow layer) & a lg paint chip that had several shades of pink. Only the center of the top part is elevated.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
