Merry Christmas Eve! For the Splitcoast Inspiration Challenge (IC838), we’re visiting BlueBellGray & their Pinterest Board where I found THIS lovely pillow. I liked the watercolor look of it on the ends w/ the flowers toward the center. Mine turned out a little more purple than magenta, but I like it.

For my slimline card, I used Brushos but mixed the powder in a palette w/ water then floated in the purple/violets & pinkish reds in from each end of the 140# w/c paper. While it was drying, I stamped the flower on another piece of w/c paper  w/ fade out ink. I haven’t used it much & in my opinion, it really didn’t fade out in this instance..it just looks gray to me. I used the same color of mixed Brushos to paint the flowers, then die cut them & fussy cut the leaves. Some of the flowers were popped up & I used the Misti to split the stamped part of the greeting a bit in order to add the Wishes die cut below. A few gems finished it.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

A big congrats to Mickey, the newest Featured Stamper (FS765) on Splitcoast! She has a wonderful gallery & I chose THIS card to case. I kept the layout & scalloped layers in gradient colors, but I used different images, dies, different colors & left off the embossing.

For my fairly easy card, after coloring the baby elephant & balloons, I die cut them & added fun foam to the ellie & 1 balloon, & cardboard to 1 balloon. The gradually darker pink layers were cut w/ a wave die (which had the scallops I wanted), attached to an ivory layer then die cut. I didn’t stick the pink layers entirely down so they’d have a little lift like Mickey’s did. The greeting was stamped & some pink ribbon across the top, then the ellie & balloons. I separated a piece of black embroidery thread into 3 for the balloon strings & added a few pink gems.


Here are the Copics I used:

For the Splitcoast Inspiration Challenge (IC824), we have the Peruvian Connection Store & Pinterest Board where I found THIS picture.

For my card, I die cut the coverplate die out of heavy w/c paper & before I took it out of the die, I put painter’s tape across the back to hold all the inset pieces together. I removed the frame part & attached it to one I cut out of cardboard to elevate it a bit. I had a bunch of colors of the Brushos already mixed in a palette so I added water & painted the inset pieces w/ the different colors. When they dried, I went over them all w/ some iridescent w/c medium to add the sparkle. Then I peeled them off the tape & attached them inside the frame. The little greeting & a couple of die cut flourishes were added to finish.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
