It’s my pleasure to host this week’s Inspiration Challenge (IC687)on Splitcoast! So we’re headed over to All Posters. I really love colorful posters..especially vintage ones, and for my card, I was inspired by THIS poster. 

I just rec’d these super cute new gnome images & couldn’t wait to take them for a test drive. This card really wasn’t hard & it’s all on one layer. There are only 4 images  (besides the greeting) the gnome w/ toadstools, the snail w/ toadstool, the rocks & the tall trees. The only one I masked was the gnome in order to stamp the trees behind him. Everything else is just coloring & I did all the background coloring first before I colored the images. 

Here’s a look at the inside & below it are the Copics I used (the bottom right one is an E31).

Thanks so much for stopping by! 

Stamps: DRS Designs: Sleeping Gnome Snail Toadstool Wonderful Day , Double Tall Pines , Village Rocks/Pond(inside:Toadally Wonderful)
Paper: Staples 110# white
Ink:Memento tuxedo black
Accessories: Copic Sketch Markers, Rubbernecker Rectangle Stitch dies

This is a fairly quick card for today’s Free for All Challenge (F4A426) & yesterday’s Ways to Use It Challenge (WT684) on Splitcoast. The first challenge has us fussy cutting & the second has us including bugs.

To make my card, I stamped the brick wall w/ gray ink then colored it w/ gray Copics.  The sky was sponged w/ a self made cloud stencil. I decided it was easier to just stamp Mr. Frog on a separate piece, color him & fussy cut him than try to mask out the wall & the original log the frog sits on.  I made a slit along the top of the wall to insert him & make it look like he was leaning on it. The little grass sprigs & ladybug were also fussy cut & added. The greeting was added on a thought/speech bubble along w/ some dragonflies

Julie Warner –
Weekly-Favorite For today’s Technique Challenge (TLC440) on Splitcoast, we are to pick one of the first 50 Technique Challenges. I chose TLC36, Keeping it Simple. So this is a very simple card. Especially since I already had the two long rectangles cut and just sitting there…even the little oval window was already cut.

The images are from DRS Designs and this cute little Big Mouth Bass is brand new! Isn’t he adorable? I thought if I paired him w/ one of the new Garden Bugs it would be perfect w/ the Caught a Bug greeting. I added a little dragonfly button I turned into a charm by going over it w/ a silver leafing pen and some stickles. After coloring the fish w/ Copics and cutting him out, I attached him to the card and drew a little water line and added some gems. The card is 5.50 x 4.25.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
