It’s my pleasure to host the Splitcoast Inspiration Challenge (IC835) this week  & we’re visiting Touch of Class & their Pinterest Board. THIS is the picture that inspired my card.

My southwest Christmas card is pretty easy to make. I die cut the sun out of pale yellow, the sandy hills out of tan, the mountains out of brown & the cactus out of a couple of shades of green. I sponged the edges to give them some depth then added the tiny Christmas lights to a couple of the cactus & used a gold gel pen to connect them. All of the scenery is attached to a pale grey bg.

Thanks

For the Splitcoast Inspiration Challenge (IC833), we’re going to a wonderful Lighthouse Pinterest Board where I found THIS lovely picture.

For my southwest card, I started w/ a background I made quite a while ago. I thought the purples & oranges were good colors for a desert sunset scene. The bg was done by smooshing the Marvy metallic markers onto a rubber brayer, spritzing w/ water & rolling it over a piece of white card. If I remember correctly, I did it once w/ the yellow, orange & silver colors & again w/ the purples & silver. The hills & cactus plants were die cut out of a few shades of purple & I used part of the leftover orange areas for the cowgirl, cowboy & roadrunner. They were also popped up on foam to give them a little depth.

SW Birthday by Julie Warner https://thewritestuff.justwritedesigns.com/?p=28123

This is for the Splitcoast Inspiration Challenge (IC654) & Stacy chose the Vera Bradley site. Lovely colors & patterns there! I was inspired by THIS tote. I just love the colors & Southwest pattern.
  SW Birthday by Julie Warner https://thewritestuff.justwritedesigns.com/?p=28123
To make my SW background, I applied Distress oxide inks to the inside of the embossing folder (Embossing Folder Stamping) then placed my die cut piece of white card stock inside. I actually used what would normally be the back side because I wanted just the lines & not the inside of the pattern. Leaving the c/s just where it was, I added a little more ink here & there where needed. When satisfied, I went ahead & ran it thru the Big Shot to emboss it because I also wanted the texture. The big Happy was die cut then stamped & double stacked on another white piece to give it some depth. The coral pieces were leftovers that seemed to fit in.

Here’s a look at the inside.
