For the Splitcoast Inspiration Challenge (IC803), we’re headed to Shop Sweet Lulu. They had quite a few things that caught my eye, but I kept coming back to THIS card. The hot pink hair & star shaped sunglasses really captured my attention.

For my card, I stamped, colored & die cut the Nala image, I die cut some stars for her sunglasses using gold & white glitter card. I had to practice that hot pink hair a couple of times on scrap to get the look I wanted. I popped up just a bit on a rounded corner rectangle & added a turquoise mat. It took me a while to figure out what to do about a bg to tie all the colors together. Then I found a piece I made a while back by spraying the inside of an embossing folder then running it thru the machine. It had the colors & kind of retro rock feel to it. After I put it all together, I added some stickles to the raised white lines on the bg. The greeting is part stamped, part die cut.

Here are the Copics I used:

Congrats to Gayle, the newest Featured Stamper (FS722)! She has a lovely gallery & I chose THIS to case. I mainly went w/ the one on the left, keeping the cardinal & greenery, but I used different images & dies & used a different layout.

I stamped the lantern & colored it w/ Copics. Did a little out of the box to keep from cutting off the top of the lantern & the tip of the cardinal’s tail (trust me..birds do not like you messing w/ their tails).

On the kraft layer, I stamped the new pinecone all over w/ the Distress oxide ink but a left a space for the greeting. The pine green circle was dry embossed & I rubbed some gold rub n buff type paste over the top of it. A white gel pen was used to add some highlights to the greeting.

It’s my pleasure to guest host the Watercolor Wednesday Challenge (WCW018) on Splitcoast. The technique I chose is Watercolor on embossed paper. I thought it looked interesting but easy enough for everyone.

Since I wanted to make a Halloween card, I chose a couple of Halloween themed embossing folders to go w/ my cute little die cut owl. I embossed the large bg w/ the wordy folder then followed the instructions on the video using bright, Halloween colors of my Peerless watercolors. After it dried, I thought the words didn’t really pack the punch I wanted so I inked the inside of the folder w/ black soot Distress oxide ink & embossed the watercolored bg again. Much better! Now the words really show up.

I did the same for the little orange Wicked strip & perched my owl on it.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
