It’s my pleasure & my turn to host the Splitcoast Inspiration Challenge (IC718) & we’re headed to Piper Classics. They have a lot of lovely items & I was inspired by the colors in THIS picture.

I saw a similar card, a very long time ago but I can’t find it for anything, now that I’m looking for it. I think it was probably by Michelle Zindorf, but I’m not certain. Doesn’t it always happen that way? Anyway, it stuck in my head & I thought this would be a great way to use this Single Fall Tree image.

After I masked off the water area & sponged in the ground & bg tree line, I reversed the mask & sponged in the water. I used a few yellow & orange Copics to add the trees/bushes in the distance, then I put the tree image into my Misti & stamped it w/ Distress oxide inks in walnut & espresso. First one was stamped, then I moved the panel to stamp it again, & again, & again. I turned it upside down, lined the trees up, & stamped them in tea dye for the reflection trees. After all the trees were stamped, I added some white lines w/ a gel pen in the water & sponged a little walnut around the edges.

Here’s the inside.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

I have a fun Halloween card that combines the Technique Challenge (TLC758) to use Washi tape & the Clean & Simple Challenge (CAS549) to use sunset colors. I don’t use Washi tape much so mine is not all that creative..just a polka dot piece across the top. And I think candy corn have just the right sunset colors.

The candy corn was stamped a bunch of times (with a little masking), colored & I drew little faces on them to give them some personality. The greeting was added along w/ a die cut bat & the polka dot washi tape across the top.

Here are the Copics I used.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Since it’s the Splitcoaststampers Fan Club September Christmas Challenge & Featured Stamper Challenge, I combined the two for my card. You’ll need to be Fan Club member for the Christmas Challenge, but that’s easy…just click the blue link to find out how.  For the Featured Stamper (FS656), a big congrats to Julie! I chose THIS wonderful card to case. I liked the snowman in the frame so I kept that but I used dies instead of a stamp, a glitter tree line die cut instead of an embossed bg & turned my horizontal. 

After die cutting all the snowman parts & putting them together, I stamped a splatter bg w/ white ink onto the aqua bg (kind of hard to see) then added some die cut glitter snowflakes before adding the white frame. The pine tree forest was also cut out of white glitter paper & added across the bottom w/ the greeting above it.  I used some Prismacolor pencils to add some shading to all the snowman parts.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
