The Clean & Simple Challenge (CAS557) is a happy Halloween theme using some purple. I think purple is a perfect color to go on Halloween cards.

For my Halloween card today. I’m using one of my fave images, this Happy Pumpkin, but I always call him Jack.  I love his jaunty hat & big grin. After I colored him & die cut him I added a narrow purple layer. The background was embossed w/ 2 different folders. I wish you could see it in person..it is SOOOO sparkly. I went over all the high points w/ a Versamark then heat embossed them w/ a black sparkly powder. I stamped just part of a large greeting & embossed it as well. Then I used a small rounded oval die to cut it. 

Here’s the inside & the Copic colors I used.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Congrats to Kari, the newest Featured Stamper (FS661) on Splitcoast! She has lovely, growing gallery & I chose THIS card as my inspiration. I kept the western theme & framed boxes, but I used different images & colors, different layout & changed it from a cowgirl to a cowboy.

For my version, I made a western themed birthday card. Originally, the 3 squares were going to be in a line down one side. But in order to have this much of the images in the square, it made them too big to stack. So the Cowboy was moved to his own side &  put on top instead of inside a cut out square. 

With the layout having so much going on, I kept the color palette simple & stuck to 2 colors, since most guys don’t want things too fussy, anyway. I added a piece of a barbed wire die cut (hey, guys don’t really “get” ribbon & I’m pretty sure the butterflies like Kari used, would be wasted on them, lol) & put the greeting under the cowboy.

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

For today’s Color Challenge (CC759) on Splitcoast, the colors are mango, rose & pear. To be honest, these colors are not on my go to list & I don’t have these colors, so I came as close as I could. 

For my card, I first inked a craft sheet w/ distress oxide inks, misted then pressed my paper to it. After I dried it, the leaves were stamped, masking as I went. I pressed some mini Distress inks to a solid version of the leaf, spritzed it then stamped it inside the outline leaves. It still didn’t look right, so I used a paintbrush & some embossing ink & painted inside the leaves & clear embossed them to make them stand out a bit more. The green pear top layer was die cut & the window was cut using my resizing technique to make it longer than a std rect. The 3 little leaves are from a couple of small punches. The fall part of the greeting was stamped & the hello is a double stacked die cut. 

Here’s the inside:
