A big congrats to Gracie, the newest Featured Stamper (FS655) on Splitcoast! She has such a sweet little gallery & after much browsing, I chose THIS card as my inspiration. I kept the Halloween theme & most of the layout, but turned mine vertical & used different images & slightly different colors.

I really love this Oct 31 square & I also love having a gradient color behind it. For this card, I measured to make sure I could fit 3 on a panel & they fit! Into the Misti it went. Stamped each one multiple times to get good coverage, then colored w/ Copics. 

For the greeting, I die cut the Happy part & used the solid part instead of the actually letters, then stamped the Halloween part of the Halloween Arc below it & added a little punched spider. Pretty easy & didn’t take a ton of time. 

Here are the Copics I used & also the inside.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

It’s the last day of the Splitcoast Dare to Get Dirty Challenges & I made this to fit a couple of the challenges..Janine’s Challenge & Polly’s Challenge. For all the details go to the Dare to Get Dirty Forum..but you’ll need to be a Fan Club member (click the blue link to find out how).

This is probably one of the quickest cards I’ve made in a while. The bg & white frame were already made & had been hanging around in my stash for quite awhile. If I remember correctly, I brayered the inside of the embossing folder w/ a rainbow ink pad then embossed it. Party Pig is the only thing I had to do. Just colored & cut him out. His hat was the only thing that didn’t come out right. Let’s just say…beware of Copics w/ the wrong caps on them. People who have watched me color have asked why I’m so quick to put the caps back on when I’m using them. This is why. If I leave the caps off, I seem to always get them mixed up. Oh well! 

Here’s the inside & the Copics I used. (The green one was the culprit! Bad marker, bad marker!)

Thanks so much for stopping by!

For the Splitcoast Inspiration Challenge (IC708) we have Converse shoes. They actually have a colorful, fun site & I was inspired by THIS pair of shoes. I love the rainbow of colors.

For my card, I first white embossed the mermaid tails & little fish then used Distress reinkers & a waterbrush  to create the rainbow of colors.The paintbrush was used to float in water, a section at a time, then drops of the reinkers were added. I made another little scrap like it to use for the die cut the “Happy”. A little splatter, some sequins, the stamped rest of the greeting & done.

Here’s the inside..I did a little masking to recreate the Fintastic part.
