For the Splitcoast Inspiration Challenge (IC773), we are headed to a photo site & I was inspired by THIS picture.

On my card, I stamped the new Slimline Birthday Bg image & colored it in w/ Copics. I die cut the white scallop layers & also the inside peekaboo die w/ the triple windows that open. Before attaching this layer over the bg, I stamped the birthday words on the outside of the little windows. Each little window opens a different direction to reveal part of the birthday image behind it

I added a narrow blue layer between the 2 white layers before attaching them to my card front.


Here are the Copics I used.

It’s my pleasure to host the Splitcoast Featured Stamper Challenge (FS711) this week & a big congrats to Patti! She has a lovely gallery & I chose THIS card to case. I kept the fall them & multi colors, but I used different images & instead of emboss resist, I black embossed onto a shaving cream bg.

For my card, I used a shaving cream bg I made a while back & I thought the colors would be perfect for a fall card. I die cut it then put it into my Misti & stamped this wonderful, new veined leaves bg in black & black embossed it on top. I love the bit of shine & deep black the embossing gives to the image. It’s backed w/ a black, inside scallop die cut panel & I used a smaller white one to stamp the greeting on. I wanted it to stand out a bit more, so I used a couple of rectangle dies to cut a narrow black frame to put around the greeting.

For the Splitcoast Inspiration Challenge (IC772), we’re headed to Soft Surroundings. They have a lot of really lovely items & for my card I was inspired by the colors in THIS dress.

I did some slightly tricky die cutting for the angled topper & since I’ve had questions about my resizing technique w/ dies, I took some extra pics to help explain it. The angled die I used on the edge is actually sized for an A2 card so I had to partially die cut the Fall Slimline image w/ the next largest size stitched slimline die. Then I had to cut the lower edge & extend the shorter length of the border die. This is how I did the first cut. (Click on any pic to make it larger)

You’ll see I only cut the top 3/4 of the die, not cutting the lower 1/4 at all.

I used the actual angled die & a ruler to extend the line where I want to cut. A red pencil was used to make it visible here.

I used the smaller top plate to make first cut.

You can see the first cut more clearly here. Only the right side is cut.

Now I line up the die along the remaining left side making sure to line up the stitch lines on the die.

Now it’s flipped back over & ready to cut.

All finished. Just have to erase the pencil & color it in.

You may notice that my colored in panel looks longer on the left than it did when I was cutting it. After I finished coloring & started to assemble my card, I realized it looked better a little longer, so I cut a bit more of the leftover, then stamped the acorn again & fussy cut it. This bg is so busy that w/ the acorn on top, you can’t even see where the cut was. I added a narrow white cut border under it, then attached it to my blue bg.
Here are the Copics I used.
