It’s my honor to host the Splitcoast Inspiration Challenge (IC779) this week, & we are headed to Plaid Crafts where I chose THIS as my inspiration.

For my little turkey, I die cut the turkey & all the feathers, along w/ some leaves & pumpkins out of gold, rust, kraft, brown & olive card stock. I die cut 4 of the turkey bodies, because originally I was going 3D but found that it worked great instead of adding a lot of fun foam to elevate him & keep him from flattening out. I took some extra pics to show what it looks like. Two of the turkey bodies were scored down the middle & one was attached on either side of the front turkey, then a flat turkey body was attached to the back side. The feathers were scored w/ a piercing tool & half were attached to the back of the front turkey & half attached to the back turkey, giving it even more of a dimensional look.

This is the turkey front.

Here’s the bottom view, showing the the extra, scored turkey bodies attached to the front & back turkeys.

Here’s a side view, showing the feathers split between the front & back turkey bodies.


Another side view, showing where I added a pop dot to stabilize it. It’s really not necessary, as the folded side turkeys really help it keep its shape.


The white & rust colored ovals were die cut, the greeting added & attached to a die cut piece of designer paper.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

We have a fun Get Spooked Challenge on the Ways to Use It (WT816) today. So I think this card will definitely fit right in. For the bg, I used the Wrinkle Free Distress tech on some lightweight watercolor paper using some yellow, orange & purple Distress inks.

When it dried, I used the splatter bg to stamp over it w/ gold ink & used gold embossing powder. Then I put the panel in my Misti & stamped the graveyard & crow.  Leaving the panel in place, I put the white layer w/ the oval cut out on top & stamped the grim reaper, took the white panel off & stamped him again. The tombstone & ghost were stamped on white & fussy cut.

Here’s the inside:

For the Splitcoast Inspiration Challenge (IC776), we are headed to Halloween Costumes. Some really spooky stuff there & I was inspired by THIS picture.

For my spooky scene, I die cut the grey bg & all the crows, bats, tree & owl out of black. The moon is just a largish yellow circle & I sponged some orange ink around the edges. The white fence & tombstones were die cut & I wrote RIP on a few of them & added cracks to others (these are all part of the Spooky House die) . I had a sponged piece of yellow/orange & die cut the pumpkin out of it. For the clouds at the top, I sponged on some picket fence Distress ink on the edges in order to have them show up a little more. Then it was just a matter of piecing everything all together. The only stamping on this was the greeting & I sponged the edges of it, too. The eyes were added on the crows & bats using a white Posca paint pen.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
