Julie Warner –
Best of 2014!
My card today is for 3 Challenges: Sweet Stamps Love Challenge, Splitcoast Inspiration Challenge (IC428), & Splitcoast Lovefest Challenge (LOVEFEST2014B)! For the IC Challenge, I was inspired by THIS rug. I love the poppies and circular shape around them.

It’s no secret that I love floral images..especially I love to color them. Don’t you just adore this Poppy Vase image? I couldn’t wait to color it. Instead of bright red poppies, I made mine more of a coral, orangey color, sort of a California poppy color.  I used Copics to color it then a circle die to cut it out. I decided I only wanted a partial circle, so I cut off the left side. The remaining piece of white card stock, was trimmed and embossed with a small heart pattern before I attached them both to a piece of violet blue designer paper. The “love you” phrase was die cut out of a textured metallic copper card stock and I made a matching 1/2 inch faux brad  ( I also did a similar tutorial for Splitcoast HERE) out the same card stock and attached it to help fill in a little of the blank space. The rest of the layout came about because of pieces I had left over and I decided I liked the way they fit.

These are the Copics I used to color the image:
Poppies, Flowers & Leaves- Y06, Y15,  R00, R02, R22, R27, R35, R46, R89, , B21, B24, B28,YG01, YG25,YG45, G28
Vase: B60, B63, BV20, BV25, C00, C1, C3

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Julie Warner –
For today’s Inspiration Challenge (IC247), we were sent to Bed Bath & Beyond by Audrie. I love that place! And I was inspired by THIS plate. I love the colorful flowers against the white background. This is also for my first post as a guest designer this month for Sweet Stamps! You can see my post here for the Color Challenge (pink, red & white) on the Sweet Stamps Blog.

After coloring the image with Copic markers, I used a square die and an Out of the Box Nestie technique.  The designer paper layer was die cut with a larger square and the larger white layer was trimmed to fit along with the side layer of the same dp. Two pearl white Candi dots were glued in place and the Special Day 9114 was hand cut in the pennant shape and attached on the right side only. The finished card is 5.50 x 4.25 (A2). Usually I take a picture of the Copics I used, but I forgot. So here is a list of the colors:
R11, R20, R22, R35, R46 (poppies)
RV10, RV11, RV19, RV34, RV55 (tulips)
YG01, YG09, YG11, YG17, YG67 (leaves)
C00, C1, C3, C5, BOOO (teapot & shading)

Thanks so much for stopping by! Be sure to stop by and check out the Sweet Stamps Color Challenge #155!
