For the Splitcoast Inspiration Challenge (IC803), we’re headed to Shop Sweet Lulu. They had quite a few things that caught my eye, but I kept coming back to THIS card. The hot pink hair & star shaped sunglasses really captured my attention.

For my card, I stamped, colored & die cut the Nala image, I die cut some stars for her sunglasses using gold & white glitter card. I had to practice that hot pink hair a couple of times on scrap to get the look I wanted. I popped up just a bit on a rounded corner rectangle & added a turquoise mat. It took me a while to figure out what to do about a bg to tie all the colors together. Then I found a piece I made a while back by spraying the inside of an embossing folder then running it thru the machine. It had the colors & kind of retro rock feel to it. After I put it all together, I added some stickles to the raised white lines on the bg. The greeting is part stamped, part die cut.

Here are the Copics I used:

For my card, after stamping & coloring, I die cut the dahlias, using my out of the box technique on the left side. The matching dies will let you cut out the flower heads separately, but since I already had them arranged, I did this way so I could have them still part of the white panel. For the black dotty panel, I wanted some black & white paper but didn’t have any that was just right. So…I took a piece of black & embossed it w/ folder that has 2 sizes of dots. Then I took out my Japanese screw punch & used 2 sizes of bits to drill out the embossed dots. Having the pattern already embossed, made it really easy & quick. Here’s a pic showing the process.

The greeting was white embossed on a small black strip.

A big congrats to Jen, the newest Featured Stamper (FS731) at Splitcoast! She has a wonderful gallery & I chose THIS card to case. I liked the 3 little tags w/ images on them, so I kept that. But I used different images, dies & colors, & turned the layout to vertical.

For my card, I came across this leftover bg piece that I had made ages ago. I love how bright & festive it is & thought it would be perfect w/ these 3 candles. The bg was done by inking the inside of the birthday embossing folder w/ a rainbow ink pad, then embossing it. I colored the candles to go w/ this bg, die cut them then added them to the 3 die cut tags. I wanted a little more separation between them & the bg so I die cut a wide-ish frame to go around the bg. It also helps to disguise the fact that this bg doesn’t run the entire length of the card front.

There were a few areas that the color on the bg had run into the white letters but a little touch up w/ a white Posca pen helped disguise it.

Here’s the inside. Just a little trimmed off piece at the bottom & I used the same rainbow ink to stamp the greeting.
