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!

For the Splitcoast Inspiration Challenge (IC711) we’re heading over to the Audubon Society. One of my fave places. I get their newsletters in my email & their address labels…I just love everything to do w/ birds. My inspiration was THIS illustration of the painted bunting. I love all the colors!

My card is really CAS..I die cut the leaf brand & little birds out of a multicolor shaving cream bg I made quite a while ago. I die cut the same branch out of some black c/s & also into the front of a white panel. The black branch was inserted into the negative die cut space & the multicolor version was attached offset, on top. I did a similar stack w/ the Hugs die cut & the tiny birds.

Here’s the inside.
