We have a wonderful Pinterest Board & Kia as a guest hostess for the Inspiration Challenge this week! So many lovely table settings & after much browsing, I chose THIS as my inspiration because I loved the flowers on top of the stripes.

After coloring the poppy bouquet, I colored an extra image & cut out the center 3 flowers & popped them up, rotated 45 degrees on the base image. The base layer was die cut w/ the center border & I added a coordinating border underneath it before attaching it to the green stripe paper. I couldn’t find any black & white stripe paper that I liked, but this green stripe fit the colors really well (it’s from an older box of blank Christmas cards!). 

Here are the Copics I used:

A big Congrats to Monique, the newest Featured Stamper (FS680) on Splitcoast! She has a fabulous gallery & it was hard to pick, but I finally decided on THIS card to case. I kept the blue flowers theme & intricate bg cut out, but I used different images & dies & left off a few layers.

After coloring the blue daisies, I die cut them w/ a rounded stitched rectangle die. I used my out of the box die cutting technique to keep from cutting off the petals on the left side.  On the white bg, I die cut the left side w/ a circle lattice die & added just a few of the centers back in then backed it w/ navy blue. The butterfly was colored w/ the same colors & die cut w/ its matching die & I split the greeting..white embossing half on navy & stamping the rest on the white bg. I used a word window punch on the “Happy” part.

Here are the Copics I used. (I also used a few Prismacolor Pencils in similar colors on top.)

For the Splitcoast Inspiration Challenge (IC741) we’re going to Shop The Manor. After window shopping for quite a while, I came across THIS lovely pillow.  I remembered I had an alcohol ink bg in my stash w/ similar colors so I went w/ the pillow for my inspiration. The bg was done w/ alcohol inks on Yupo paper. After dropping the colors, I spritzed it & also dropped some rubbing alcohol onto it to move the color around a little.

After coloring the daisies, I stamped the greeting then cut it w/ a lg tag die (using my out of the box technique on the left side). The tag die has a separate circle or square hole so you’re able to put it anywhere. I used it to not only cut the hole for the tag, but also cut all the little circles down the side. To make them stand out more, I die cut a bunch of these holes in white then used a 3/8″ circle punch to cut out the stitched hole left behind. These rings were attached on top of the circle cut outs in the colorful bg. A few of the punched out circles were added to the tag. Since the bg wasn’t a full card front size, I attached some stitched strips of white to frame it in & give it a more finished look.

Here are the Copics I used on the daisies.
