The Clean & Simple Challenge (CAS557) is a happy Halloween theme using some purple. I think purple is a perfect color to go on Halloween cards.

For my Halloween card today. I’m using one of my fave images, this Happy Pumpkin, but I always call him Jack.  I love his jaunty hat & big grin. After I colored him & die cut him I added a narrow purple layer. The background was embossed w/ 2 different folders. I wish you could see it in person..it is SOOOO sparkly. I went over all the high points w/ a Versamark then heat embossed them w/ a black sparkly powder. I stamped just part of a large greeting & embossed it as well. Then I used a small rounded oval die to cut it. 

Here’s the inside & the Copic colors I used.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

For the Inspiration Challenge we’re headed across the pond to a lovely site. I chose THIS for my inspiration.

My card today took way longer that I planned on spending but that’s how it goes sometimes. I wanted a twig wreath w/ stars on it but I wanted them to be a silver/gold mix & look a little rustic. The stars were pretty easy. I die cut them then covered them w/ a mix of silver ink on the inside & gold ink around the edges then sprinkled on 2 different embossing powders. One is a gilded gold (mostly clear w/ gold flecks) & the other was a stardust powder (mostly clear w/ little sparkles & a hint of silver). I did the same for the grosgrain ribbon die & bow die cut. On the wreath, I die cut it out of brown then used the same gold ep just in places here & there. Then part that took too long happened because I thought w/ the open area in the center, why not make it a shaker? But the sequins looked too bright & shiny. So I did the embossing again on a piece of ivory & die cut the sequins using a sequin die. Big trouble! Most the embossing flaked right off. So….I had piece sticker paper w/ most of the stickers gone & just the borders left. I peeled it off & stuck my sequins to the sticky side & embossed them again. That worked. I should have thought of that first! Then I put it all together & stamped half of the greeting on the front w/ Versa Clair nocturne & sprinkle the gilded gold powder on it & embossed it. You can see it in the close up but head on, it just looks black.

Here’s the inside.

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.
