For the Splitcoast Inspiration Challenge, we’re headed to Lia Griffith & I chose THIS for my inspiration. I love the colors & watercolored look of the stripe

For my card, I smooshed the green & teal inks onto a large acrylic block & used a water brush to pick up the color and paint it onto the stripes. I had the wavy lines bg image in my Misti so I was able to repeat this as many times as needed. Then I moved the paper over a bit, & stamped the lines again next to the first lines. I used the same inks to stamp the upper section & to color the outline die cut leaves. 

On the curved bottom, I die cut the frame w/ curves die & trimmed out one line in white & another in teal & attached them on top of the top panel & trimmed it away underneath to add it on top of the wavy stripe bg.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Welcome to May!  And it’s time for the Splitcoaststampers Fan Club May Christmas Challenge! We have a year of new Christmas Challenges!  You’ll need to be Fan Club member but that’s easy…just click the blue link to find out how. Bet you’re wondering what the challenge theme is..I’d love to tell you but you’ll have to go see for yourself.

My card started w/ the little square of blue watercolor bg. I wish I had made more of it, but this was all I had left of this particular one. So I framed w/ a mirror gold square frame & added some die cut stars & moon on it. The gold glitter trees & deer were die cut out of some gold glitter wrapping paper. For the moon, I did cut one out of the gold glitter & another out of white. Then I placed the white one back in the die, moved over a bit, to trim a little more of it so the gold glitter would show around the edges. The greeting was gold embossed & I used gold leafing pen to edge the white panel before attaching it to the card.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

We have a very colorful sock site, called Joy of Socks, for our Inspiration Challenge (IC747). I chose THIS pair of socks for my inspiration. Good thing I kept the pic, because the socks have been removed from the site!

For my get well card, I die cut the various succulents out of teal, lime & scraps of watercolored paper then die cut the white pots. I wanted a large window, so I used my die  resizing technique to make the (original window is only 4 panes) window half again wider & longer. I’m not gonna was a little tricky but it worked. The valance was cut using a curved border die & fun orangey-red paper. Another, subtle print was added behind the window & I popped the whole thing up just a tad w/ cardboard. I wanted a little pop of color, so I added some little red flowers to a couple of the plants.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Keep safe & be well!
