It’s my pleasure & my turn to host the Splitcoast Inspiration Challenge (IC713)! And we’re headed off to Wool & Honey..mainly a yarn site but they also have some really cute gifts. I love to knit so this place really spoke to me. For my card, I was inspired by THIS magazine. I really love the white plants on the watercolor bg. 

Originally, I was going to mask the shape of the die cut, then watercolor the bg. But it just didn’t work out like I wanted so I went to Plan B where I watercolored the bg then added the die cuts on top. I misted the w/c paper lightly, sprinkled on 4 green & blue colors of Brushos crystals, then misted heavily. After I dried it, I stacked a white die cut slightly offset onto a matching black version to give it a little depth. The greeting was white embossed onto the black strip.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

A big congrats to Angie, the newest Featured Stamper (FS635) on Splitcoast! She has a beautiful gallery & I chose THIS to case, mainly because I have the same image. Since I did use the same image, I changed most everything else..the colors, dies & layout.

My card started with a Brusho background I made ages ago. It’s sort of how I imagine deep space would look & thought it would look good behind this happy little girl, who’s in her own little world, blissfully swinging from a star. Remember that feeling, as if you’re flying? I put her in my Misti, stamped, colored her w/ Copics then overstamped her. I stamped the greeting on a circle die cut & added a narrow frame. The stars were die cut out of white glitter paper.

Below is the inside, using leftovers from the front & next to it are the Copics I used.

For the Splitcoast Inspiration Challenge (IC658), we are to chose a souvenir from our state or country. So I chose my home state of Texas since I have stamps for that state. And as everyone knows, Texans are pretty proud of their state. Remember the old saying...”Don’t ask a man if he’s from Texas. If he is, he’ll tell you. If he’s not, you’ll just embarrass him.” I was inspired by THIS postcard depicting the town where I grew up..though I was a little disappointed they spelled it wrong  😕 

To make my Corpus Christi (aka: Sparkling City by the Sea) skyline card, I made a bg w/ Brushos then die cut the silhouette skyline. I used another skyline die that had a bridge (because Corpus has the big Bay Bridge) & added a piece of it to the right side. I also die cut the moon & stars & the Stars word to insert it into the greeting. The inside of the card has the “Deep in the Heart of Texas” part. Now all you fellow Texans (& a few who want to be, lol) will be singing that song. You’re welcome!! 


Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a great weekend, y’all!
