A big congrats to Laura, the newest Featured Stamper (FS749) on Splitcoast! She has a terrific gallery & I chose THIS card to case. I kept the fish theme & bg colors, but changed most everything else. I used different images, dies & a different layout.

For my underwater scene, I used blue-green alcohol ink bg..it has some silvery streaks but they’re hard to see here. It was cut in a lg circle & I added a stitched circle frame on top. The lg fish, octopus & sea grasses were colored w/ Copics & die cut. The octopus was cut in half so I could place part over the frame & the rest under it. The tiny fish were die cut out of dk blue & left overs of the same bg. I wanted them to blend into the watery scene. 

Here are the Copics I used on the fish.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

For the Splitcoast Inspiration Challenge, we’re headed to a Pinterest Board full of entertainment & tabletop displays, where I found THIS picture of colorful cupcakes.


For my cupcake card, I stamped & die cut one cupcake & also die cut some extra cupcakes to use as masks. The masks are a tad bigger than the stamped cupcake but it really won’t matter..I simply stamped the center cupcake, then placed the mask close to the left side line & stamped the cupcake on the left. Then I moved the mask to the right side & stamped the cupcake on the right. I’ll mention, if you try this, you will need 3 masks minimum for when you get to the row behind the front one. I also used the reverse mask..the part left when I die cut the cupcake masks. I used the reverse mask around the stamped cupcakes to sponge in most of the color on my cupcakes. (Please see picture below.)

After sponging on the color, I used Copics to add a little more color & depth then popped up the one cut out cupcake on top of the central one. Two colors of turquoise frames were added & a little stickles, a few sequins & a cherry on top.


Here are the Copics I used:

A big congrats to Jacqui, the newest Splitcoast Featured Stamper (FS748)! She has a fun gallery & I chose THIS card to case. I kept the slimline layout & triple image arrangement. But I used different images, dies & colors.

All of the pirate/sea creatures were colored & die cut. The white panel was die cut & I cut a slightly larger cobalt blue panel & used a slightly smaller circle die to cut out the insides of the circles. I put the octopus inside a die cut submarine & added a palm tree on the right & just a hint of waves across the bottoms of the triple “portholes”.

Here are the Copics I used (I colored the whole pirate set, so there are a bunch!).

Thanks so much for stopping by!
