Congrats to Diana, the newest Featured Stamper (FS662) on Splitcoast! She has a sweet gallery & after much browsing, I chose THIS to case. I liked the display of color around the circular greeting so I kept that, but I used different images & dies & added little houses instead of color strips.

My card is pretty easy…I stamped the greeting & little globe onto the circle die cut then added a cobalt blue frame around it. I penciled in the shape of the circle & stamped my little houses & trees all around the perimeter then colored them in. Some sequins were added to finish.

Here are the Copic colors I used.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Supplies:

Stamps: Rubbernecker Stamps: Lift Off set, Organic set #2
Paper:  Staples 110# white, cobalt blue
Ink: Memento tuxedo black, Kaleidacolor Caribbean Sea used for the globe
Accessories:  Rubbernecker Stamps:Rectangle Stitch, Circle Stitch, Circle Stitch Frames  dies, Copic Sketch Markers, Sequins

Congrats to Kari, the newest Featured Stamper (FS661) on Splitcoast! She has lovely, growing gallery & I chose THIS card as my inspiration. I kept the western theme & framed boxes, but I used different images & colors, different layout & changed it from a cowgirl to a cowboy.

For my version, I made a western themed birthday card. Originally, the 3 squares were going to be in a line down one side. But in order to have this much of the images in the square, it made them too big to stack. So the Cowboy was moved to his own side &  put on top instead of inside a cut out square. 

With the layout having so much going on, I kept the color palette simple & stuck to 2 colors, since most guys don’t want things too fussy, anyway. I added a piece of a barbed wire die cut (hey, guys don’t really “get” ribbon & I’m pretty sure the butterflies like Kari used, would be wasted on them, lol) & put the greeting under the cowboy.

Here’s a look at the inside & below it are the Copics I used.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

It’s my pleasure to host the Inspiration Challenge (IC722) at Splitcoast!  I chose a lovely site, Lulu & Georgia. They have some lovely things & I chose THIS for my inspiration. I really liked the pink & gold combo w/ the little flowers & birds.

After I found some pink & gold paper, I die cut the flower branch, birds, square frame & love out of mirror gold card stock. I wanted a solid pink behind the branch & birds so they wouldn’t get lost in the pattern of the paper, but all I could find in the same pink color was a good sized paint chip. It was just big enough to fill in behind the gold frame.

A few extra die cut flowers were added & I double stacked the greeting to give it a little dimension.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
