For the Splitcoast Inspiration Challenge (IC801), we’re headed to a lovely Pinterest Board & I found so many pictures I loved. I kept coming back to THIS picture, though, so I used it for my inspiration. All the lovely watercolors in the palette reminded me of this multi circle die. As side note, I always see the pretty little ceramic palettes w/ watercolors in them & they look so good. Unfortunately, I’m not allowed to have breakable things like that in my craft room. So plastic it is! (And kind of messy at that.)

On my cards, I first die cut the large background die w/ all the circles out of watercolor paper, then used watercolors to paint in the circles & lightly color the background. When I put it together, I decided the w/c bg on top of the w/c circles was just too much, so I die cut a plain white version & did a mix-match ending up w/ 2 cards. The top backgrounds on both cards are popped up a little higher than the circle insets.

On this card, I die cut the fab new script word w/ shadow out of black & again in white, then switched them up. The rest of the greeting is white embossed on black. Then I added a few sequins.

I did basically the same on the companion card, but switched up the You die cut & used a different greeting to go w/ it. On both cards, I used a corner rounder to trim the card edges. A small one on the first card, & a med on this card.

Welcome to April!  And it’s time for the Splitcoaststampers Fan Club April  Christmas Challenge! We have a year of new Christmas Challenges!  You’ll need to be Fan Club member but that’s easy…just click the blue link to find out how. Bet you’re wondering what the challenge theme is..I’d love to tell you but you’ll have to go see for yourself. Hint..I’m really loving the new theme for this year. This post should have been up on April 1st, so I’m a little late.

For my snowman Christmas card, after coloring & die cutting the snowman & presents, I popped them up a bit on a stitched oval then added the stamped greeting on a strip underneath. The blue paper was attached behind them & I added some stickles to all the centers of the snowflakes on the paper.

Here are the Copics I used:

A big congrats to Francine, the newest Featured Stamper (FS738)! She has a fab gallery & I chose THIS card to case. I kept the die word cut off at the bottom, but used different dies, different colors & made mine a birthday card.

I made a similar card, w/ the die cut bottom like this, a long time ago & liked the look, so I was immediately drawn to that in Francine’s card. For my version, I die cut the 2 white panels; on the smaller one, I also die cut the bottom using the shadow part of the word die, then put it back. On the larger bg, I sponged just a little color at the bottom, then used a spritzer tool & Copics to spray the color onto it. Not as smooth as an airbrush system, but it will do. Then the stars bg was stamped in some of the same hot pink colors over this bg. I also put a white Posca pen into the spritzer tool & misted it, too. I did the same on the die cut Birthday, using the blue Copics. I added a star border die cut & added some stickles to it for a little sparkle.

These are the Copics I used to spritz on the color.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
