Merry Christmas Eve! For the Splitcoast Inspiration Challenge (IC838), we’re visiting BlueBellGray & their Pinterest Board where I found THIS lovely pillow. I liked the watercolor look of it on the ends w/ the flowers toward the center. Mine turned out a little more purple than magenta, but I like it.

For my slimline card, I used Brushos but mixed the powder in a palette w/ water then floated in the purple/violets & pinkish reds in from each end of the 140# w/c paper. While it was drying, I stamped the flower on another piece of w/c paper  w/ fade out ink. I haven’t used it much & in my opinion, it really didn’t fade out in this just looks gray to me. I used the same color of mixed Brushos to paint the flowers, then die cut them & fussy cut the leaves. Some of the flowers were popped up & I used the Misti to split the stamped part of the greeting a bit in order to add the Wishes die cut below. A few gems finished it.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

It’s my pleasure to host the Splitcoast Featured Stamper Challenge (FS776) this week, so a big congrats to Jo Ann! She has a wonderful gallery & I chose THIS card to case. I kept the umbrella & watercolor bg, but used different dies, colors, layout & made mine a get well card.

My card started w/ a small piece of a leftover watercolor bg. It reminded me of a rainy day & I thought it would go well w/ my umbrella die & get well theme. I popped it up a bit & backed it w/ a lg pink layer. The white frame was made by die cutting it first w/ the stitched layer, then using a smaller die to cut out the center. It’s also popped up. I die cut the umbrella using a piece of white (for the narrow layer) & a lg paint chip that had several shades of pink. Only the center of the top part is elevated.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

For the Splitcoast Inspiration Challenge (IC837), we’re visiting Emerlyn Closet & their Pinterest Board, where I found THIS lovely image.

For my slimline card, I started w/ a panel of turquoise which I spritzed w/ bleach, then die cut. The pine boughs were stamped all down the left side & colored in w/ Copics. The pinecones, leaves & berries were stamped on white, colored & die cut w/ their matching dies. When I started to arrange them on top of the pine boughs, the narrow white outline around them seemed too bright. Instead of trimming them all, I took a Copic close to the bg color & went around the edges to make them blend in a little better. A fine line black marker was used to draw the branches to the berries. The cones, leaves & some of the berries were popped up a bit for dimension. I used a white Posca paint pen to add “snow” to the images. For the greeting, I used the same die as the turquoise panel to get the width, but moved the top & bottom in to make it much narrower, height-wise.

These are the Copics I used:
