A big congrats to Gracie, the newest Featured Stamper (FS655) on Splitcoast! She has such a sweet little gallery & after much browsing, I chose THIS card as my inspiration. I kept the Halloween theme & most of the layout, but turned mine vertical & used different images & slightly different colors.

I really love this Oct 31 square & I also love having a gradient color behind it. For this card, I measured to make sure I could fit 3 on a panel & they fit! Into the Misti it went. Stamped each one multiple times to get good coverage, then colored w/ Copics. 

For the greeting, I die cut the Happy part & used the solid part instead of the actually letters, then stamped the Halloween part of the Halloween Arc below it & added a little punched spider. Pretty easy & didn’t take a ton of time. 

Here are the Copics I used & also the inside.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

For the Splitcoast Inspiration Challenge (IC708) we have Converse shoes. They actually have a colorful, fun site & I was inspired by THIS pair of shoes. I love the rainbow of colors.

For my card, I first white embossed the mermaid tails & little fish then used Distress reinkers & a waterbrush  to create the rainbow of colors.The paintbrush was used to float in water, a section at a time, then drops of the reinkers were added. I made another little scrap like it to use for the die cut the “Happy”. A little splatter, some sequins, the stamped rest of the greeting & done.

Here’s the inside..I did a little masking to recreate the Fintastic part.

Today’s CAS Challenge (CAS537) is all about June weddings. So I have a really quick wedding card.

The wedding couple, greeting, & candles in the corner were all white embossed on turquoise felt card stock. It’s not really made of felt, but it has that same textural look to it. It’s backed w/ a WFD (wrinkle free distress) background I made w/ Distress oxide inks. the flourish across the top was cut out of the same paper & I added a few pearls on it.

Here’s the inside. I flipped over the negative of the die cut for the front & used it as a stencil on the inside.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
