For the Splitcoast Inspiration Challenge (IC812) we’re going to a Surfboard Art Pinterest Board where I found THIS beautiful surfboard. I really liked the colors & rays coming down from the center.

For my card, I went w/ a slimline since it had a long layout, like the surfboard. I die cut the white & placed the sunburst stencil over the lower half of it & sponged the lt green & teal inks thru it. For the darker edges, I used a very small make up brush to go along the edges. I die cut a couple of angled borders, sponged one w/ the same inks & added them over the top where the stenciling ended. The beautiful daisies were half die cut, half fussy cut & attached to a white oval w/ a scalloped teal oval behind it. The greeting was simple white embossed onto black.

And these are the Copics I used:

It’s my pleasure to host the Featured Stamper Challenge this week. So a big congrats to Sandi, the newest Featured Stamper (FS750)! Sandi has the most amazing gallery & it was hard to chose just one, but I finally went w/ THIS card for my case. I kept the white banded bg die & floral theme, but I used different images & dies, different colors & made mine a slimline card.

For my birthday card, I die cut the white diagonal bg die & cut a long piece of butter yellow card to go behind it. On this yellow piece, I sponged some red & orange inks then used a stencil to add a bit more visual texture. The poppies were colored w/ Copics & half die cut/half fussy cut & popped up a little on top of the white bg. The greeting was white embossed on black.

Here are the Copics I used on the poppies:

For the Splitcoast Inspiration Challenge, we’re headed to a Pinterest Board full of entertainment & tabletop displays, where I found THIS picture of colorful cupcakes.


For my cupcake card, I stamped & die cut one cupcake & also die cut some extra cupcakes to use as masks. The masks are a tad bigger than the stamped cupcake but it really won’t matter..I simply stamped the center cupcake, then placed the mask close to the left side line & stamped the cupcake on the left. Then I moved the mask to the right side & stamped the cupcake on the right. I’ll mention, if you try this, you will need 3 masks minimum for when you get to the row behind the front one. I also used the reverse mask..the part left when I die cut the cupcake masks. I used the reverse mask around the stamped cupcakes to sponge in most of the color on my cupcakes. (Please see picture below.)

After sponging on the color, I used Copics to add a little more color & depth then popped up the one cut out cupcake on top of the central one. Two colors of turquoise frames were added & a little stickles, a few sequins & a cherry on top.
