It’s my pleasure to host the Splitcoast Inspiration Challenge (IC752) this week & we’re headed to the Canva Pinterest Boards. They have a website, but their Pinterest Boards are a lot more user friendly. I was inspired by THIS picture. I really loved the bright colors!

For my card, I white embossed the squiggly frame & greeting. I used a set of scallop circle dies for my wreath & added the die cut flowers on either side. Since I didn’t have a bird large enough, I used a stacked butterfly. The orange strip was fan folded & stretched across. These bright happy colors remind me of a Cinco de Mayo parade & I marched in a lot of those during my years in the school marching band.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Stamps: Rubbernecker Stamps: Frases en Español #2, 3 Line Frame

A big Congrats to Monique, the newest Featured Stamper (FS680) on Splitcoast! She has a fabulous gallery & it was hard to pick, but I finally decided on THIS card to case. I kept the blue flowers theme & intricate bg cut out, but I used different images & dies & left off a few layers.

After coloring the blue daisies, I die cut them w/ a rounded stitched rectangle die. I used my out of the box die cutting technique to keep from cutting off the petals on the left side.  On the white bg, I die cut the left side w/ a circle lattice die & added just a few of the centers back in then backed it w/ navy blue. The butterfly was colored w/ the same colors & die cut w/ its matching die & I split the greeting..white embossing half on navy & stamping the rest on the white bg. I used a word window punch on the “Happy” part.

Here are the Copics I used. (I also used a few Prismacolor Pencils in similar colors on top.)

For the Splitcoast Inspiration Challenge (IC737), Stacy chose a group of tote bags. Lots to choose from & for my card, I was inspired by the bright colors of THIS tote bag. 

After I colored the daisies, I used a trio of blue Copics to color in the bg around the flowers. Thankfully it was a small area because it’s harder than it looks. And from experience, start w/ the lightest color first..it’s really hard to walk that dark color back, lol. I added a white frame to brighten it up a bit then attached it to the embossed orchid colored bg. I thought this embossing folder mimicked the quilting of the tote bag & I used a white gel pen to add dots at the intersections. The greeting was stamped w/ the dk navy ink & I drew the little flower over the i. 

Here are the Copics I used:
