It’s my pleasure to host the Inspiration Challenge (IC722) at Splitcoast!  I chose a lovely site, Lulu & Georgia. They have some lovely things & I chose THIS for my inspiration. I really liked the pink & gold combo w/ the little flowers & birds.

After I found some pink & gold paper, I die cut the flower branch, birds, square frame & love out of mirror gold card stock. I wanted a solid pink behind the branch & birds so they wouldn’t get lost in the pattern of the paper, but all I could find in the same pink color was a good sized paint chip. It was just big enough to fill in behind the gold frame.

A few extra die cut flowers were added & I double stacked the greeting to give it a little dimension.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Supplies:

Stamps: none
Paper:  Staples 110# white, pink paint chip, gold mirror board,  dp (Mint to Be Fab – The Paper Studio)
Ink:  none
Accessories:  Rubbernecker:  Stitched Rectangles, Flower #8, Sm Flowers #2, Square Stitch Frame, Love #2 Scarecrow  (birds only) dies

For the Inspiration Challenge (IC721), we have Flags on a Stick. They have some really fun, really nice flags & for my card, I was inspired by THIS Halloween flag. I thought the decorated birdhouses were really cute.

For my Halloween card, I die cut the houses & ghosts out of white, the tree, crows & fence out of black & the tiny pumpkin out of orange. To me it seemed simpler to cut the houses in white & color them instead of cutting a bunch out of different colored paper. The die I used for the birdhouses is actually one multilevel roofline spooky house. I cut it out twice then cut apart the house to make my 3 birdhouses. On the yellow one, I colored the stars thru a stencil.  I used a 3/8″ circle punch for the holes, colored them black & put them back in. Then I just put all the pieces together on a white front where I had already stamped the greeting frame.

Here are the Copics (& 1 orange Tombow) I used. This may be the first time I’ve used that black Copic!

Thanks so much for stopping by!

It’s Dare to Get Dirty week on Splitcoast, so I’m combining Lydia’s challenge w/ the Featured Stamper Challenge. A big congrats to Pam, the newest Featured Stamper (FS652)! I chose THIS card to case. It started out to be more similar, but it went a little sideways when I decided to combine it w/ the DTGD challenge & chose THIS card of Cheryl’s as inspiration, mostly for the layers & colors. For all the details on the DTGD Challenges, go to the Dare to Get Dirty Forum.

My card is fairly simple..after coloring & die cutting the bird, I also die cut a pair of frames out of some coordinating colors of dp. I also die cut the big leaf branch & wove it over & under the frames. I also adde a few flowers to brighten it up. The fun birthday greeting was added below. I thought it went w/ this funny bird’s facial expression.

Here are the Copics I used.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
