Fun site for the Splitcoast Inspiration Challenge (IC758)! I was inspired by THIS picture.

For my scene, I stamped & colored the lady & her guide dog & stamped the greeting along side. It just looked too empty & I couldn’t find anything I wanted to put behind her. So I used a pencil to sketch the little buildings & then a few grey Copics to color them in. Just a side note: in case you ever use a pencil then color in w/ Copics, be aware that if you color over your pencil line, you will not be able to erase it. It didn’t matter since I used greys, but it might matter if you use other light colors. Apparently the Copic (or any other alcohol based marker) makes the pencil permanent. So there’s your tip of the week!


Since my main panel is a square, I needed something to fill in the rectangle of the card front. I used a gray layer & cut the side angle, then stamped one section of the plaid (stripe) bg in gray ink. 
Here are the Copics I used:

It’s my turn to host the X2!

Splitcoast Featured Stamper Challenge (FS654), so a big congrats to Donna! She has a beautiful gallery & I chose THIS to case. I kept the animal theme & most of the layout, but I used different images & dies & left off the designer paper.

I love this new Rubbernecker image of the dog lineup (it’s actually a 2 part stamp, this one is rear view & the other is the front view). I thought this rear view would work great w/ a fence & then the cats in the tree on the other side. All of the cats & dogs were colored, the cats, fence, & grass were die cut & the dogs were fussy cut around the top. There’s a matching die in the works but it isn’t out yet. I used a new cloud stencil & tumbled glass ink to sponge in the sky bg.

Here are the Copics I used.

Congrats to Jess, the newest Featured Stamper (FS617) on Splitcoast! She has a fun gallery & I chose THIS to case. I kept the brown dog & get well theme, but used different images & dies & changed up the layout.

I really love this cute dog w/ the big eyes & I thought he’d be perfect w/ this fun greeting. It’s going to my Dad who had dental surgery. He won’t be biting anyone, lol, & he’ll get a kick out of the bite reference. After stamping & coloring Fido, I die cut him w/ the matching die. The background is one big page covering die. I colored the circles blue & put them back then added a narrow brown layer. 

Here’s a look at the inside & below it are the Copics I used.
