For the Splitcoast Inspiration Challenge (IC854) we’re visiting a Pinterest Board called The Postmans Knock where I found THIS picture.

I wanted a watercolor look to my branches so I put a die cut piece of water color paper into my Misti to allow me to stamp the same branch w/ different shades of inks. On the first impression, I misted the branch w/ a little water. After stamping w/ 2 or 3 colors, I also used some water based makers to add a little more depth to the leaves. The greeting was stamped on a separate piece of w/c paper along w/ the butterfly. I used a water brush to spread the ink colors inside the butterfly then stamped it again using the darkest of the teal inks. I repeated this on a scrap of w/c paper & cut that butterfly out to pop up on top of the base image. The greeting layer was popped up on top to give some dimension.

Stickles was added to the butterfly & gems attached on the branches.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

It’s my pleasure to host the Inspiration Challenge (IC852) this week & I had a lot of fun w/ all the inspiration pics on the DIY Craft Land site. After much browsing, I chose THIS picture to inspire me.

After die cutting the vases & all the little flowers, I put them together & did a little shaping on them. I die cut the white mini slimline panel then die cut the hexagon panel inside it. I started to use a woodgrain panel behind it, like the woodgrain in my inspiration pic, but I just didn’t like it, so I saved it for the plant shelves. I cut some little pieces of brighter colored paper to put behind the openings. The blues I had weren’t quite right, so I used a BG01 Copic to color it & also the edge of the panel behind the main one. Some stickles was added to flower centers & some gems sprinkled around for a little sparkle. The peachy-pink gems were also colored w/ a Copic R14 to match the papers.

A big congrats to Cindy, the newest Featured Stamper (FS790) on Splitcoast! She has such a lovely gallery & I chose THIS card to case. I used similar colors & kept the flowers, but turned mine vertical, used die cut flowers instead of stamped & made mine a just because instead of a Christmas card.

For my mini slimline card, I die cut the white panel w/ a diamond quilt cover plate & backed it w/ a piece of coral. On the coral square on top, I did a technique I haven’t done in in a long time. I had a thick, square block of fun foam & I heated it w/ my heat tool. If you try this, you have to keep it moving & not get too close to the foam. Heat it for a about 30 seconds or so then immediately press it firmly to the surface you want to impress. In my case, it was the same cover die. Here’s a pic of it after I impressed it & inked it.

On my card, I inked it w/ the 4 Color Fuse inks then stamped it onto plain white card stock. I trimmed it & backed it w/ a square stitched die. The flowers were also die cut & inked w/ the same inks, & I added some glitter to the flower tops.

The greeting was stamped, fussy cut & added to a small label tag. The coral layer was made by cutting two & placing on top & one below.
