It’s my pleasure to host the Inspiration Challenge (IC852) this week & I had a lot of fun w/ all the inspiration pics on the DIY Craft Land site. After much browsing, I chose THIS picture to inspire me.

After die cutting the vases & all the little flowers, I put them together & did a little shaping on them. I die cut the white mini slimline panel then die cut the hexagon panel inside it. I started to use a woodgrain panel behind it, like the woodgrain in my inspiration pic, but I just didn’t like it, so I saved it for the plant shelves. I cut some little pieces of brighter colored paper to put behind the openings. The blues I had weren’t quite right, so I used a BG01 Copic to color it & also the edge of the panel behind the main one. Some stickles was added to flower centers & some gems sprinkled around for a little sparkle. The peachy-pink gems were also colored w/ a Copic R14 to match the papers.

so much for stopping by!

You heard it right! We’re having a Birthday Blog Hop & did someone say Prizes? Why, yes, we did! Just keep reading…

First, take a look at the brand new releases we have. These are fabulous & there are a lot of somethings for everyone. We have florals, we have birthdays, we have cute Valentine critters & we have fun greetings. 

The card I want to share today was made w/ the new Birthday Lilies set. This will also be a great set to use for your Easter cards.
After I colored the lilies, I fussy cut them & set them aside. I will mention, when fussy cutting a detailed image, I always start w/ a craft knife & cut out the internal pieces that I wouldn’t be able to get w/ the scissors. Then the rest is cut using a very small pair of curved blade scissors. Think decoupage scissors & it works much better to turn the paper, not the scissors, when cutting. On the background, I chose a couple of yellow inks & 1 light grey ink to sponge the colors in. I started w/ the lemon & brought it in from the bottom right & let it fade to white as I went over the mid section. The citrus was added at the lower right. Then I used the grey to come in from the upper left, again letting it fade to white as I approached the lemon. Since these colors are not two you can easily blend (w/o making mud), they really needed the bit of white so they didn’t overlap too much. A little bit is fine, but too much would not be a good look. After it dried, I stamped the greeting.

I die cut the white deckle frame, popped it up a bit, then tucked the lilies under & over the frame. The lilies are also popped up. A few sequins finished it.

Here are the Copics I used for the lilies:(I’m pretty sure I also used a Y26 mustard, but I don’t see it in there.)

It’s my pleasure to host the Splitcoast Featured Stamper Challenge (FS780), so a big congrats to Marilyn! She has a big, beautiful gallery but it didn’t take me long to zoom in on THIS card. I loved the hot pink & the off center circle, so I kept that. I used different images & dies & instead of all die cut flowers, I used a layered stamp set of flowers & made mine a mini slimline.

For my card, I die cut the hot pink layer & used a lg circle die to cut out the top center. A smaller circle die was used to cut the lg circle into a smaller one then I filled the opening w/ a die cut black circle. After stamping & die cutting several of the flower branches, I made a few cuts into the branches so I could curve them around the circle. The Hello was die cut twice out of black & stacked, then again in white & stacked offset.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
