For today’s Color Challenge (CC759) on Splitcoast, the colors are mango, rose & pear. To be honest, these colors are not on my go to list & I don’t have these colors, so I came as close as I could. 

For my card, I first inked a craft sheet w/ distress oxide inks, misted then pressed my paper to it. After I dried it, the leaves were stamped, masking as I went. I pressed some mini Distress inks to a solid version of the leaf, spritzed it then stamped it inside the outline leaves. It still didn’t look right, so I used a paintbrush & some embossing ink & painted inside the leaves & clear embossed them to make them stand out a bit more. The green pear top layer was die cut & the window was cut using my resizing technique to make it longer than a std rect. The 3 little leaves are from a couple of small punches. The fall part of the greeting was stamped & the hello is a double stacked die cut. 

Here’s the inside:

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 my pleasure to host the Splitcoast Featured Stamper Challenge (FS658) this week, so a big congrats to Laura! After much browsing, I chose THIS card to case. I kept the layout, but flipped it & used die cuts instead of stamps on mine.

For my autumn card, I die cut all the scarecrow pieces out of different colors, added a bit of shading w/ some Prismacolor pencils & put them all together. I added a fence & some corn stalks. The greeting was stamped onto a shortened stitched pennant.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
