For the Splitcoast Inspiration Challenge, Brenda chose a fun site, Just for Fun Flags. And after browsing a while, I chose THIS as my inspiration.

For my Halloween card, I stamped & colored the Witch Legs on an arched die cut. The stars were stamped on the purple w/ Distress oxide shaded lavender. I die cut the stars border out of a lighter purple & also white & used some of the white ones to fill in the purple outlines. I added stickles in some areas for a little sparkle.

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

Thanks so much for stopping by!

This is also for the Featured Stamper (FS607) & I chose THIS to case.

For my CAS card, I stamped & colored the cute pumpkins then I used 2 colors of glittery embossing powder just on the tops..sort of a frost on the pumpkins look. I used my out of the box die cutting technique to keep the little flourishes intact. I also added a pair of embossed & fussy cut leaves to the orange pumpkin. On the wheat image, I stamped it w/ the acorn ink & embossed w/ the same powder I used on the orange pumpkin. I also swiped around the edge of the panel w/ the ink & embossed it, as well. The Autumn word was die cut in rust & lt blue & before stacking them, I inked & embossed just the top half of the rust colored one. 

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

This was made for two Splitcoast challenges..the Color Challenge (CC705) using soft suede, pool party & berry burst..and the Clean & Simple Challenge (CC499) to frame it. For me, this is about as CAS as it gets. 

I put the solid stamp (bg for the wine bottle) into my Misti, inked it w/ the raspberry color, misted it, then stamped on the Neenah, I inked just the lower section w/ the berry color & stamped. I repeated this using the oxide raspberry just on the top part. Then I lined up the wine bottle/glass and stamped on top w/ the nocturne ink. I added just a bit of the pool color to the wine bottle & glass, then die cut the frames out of sand colored c/s. I forgot to take a pic of the Copics I used, but on the sand frames, I used YG93, E43 & E44 to make the suede color. I used BG000 on the wine bottle.

Here’s a look at the inside.
