It’s my honor to host the Splitcoast Inspiration Challenge (IC779) this week, & we are headed to Plaid Crafts where I chose THIS as my inspiration.

For my little turkey, I die cut the turkey & all the feathers, along w/ some leaves & pumpkins out of gold, rust, kraft, brown & olive card stock. I die cut 4 of the turkey bodies, because originally I was going 3D but found that it worked great instead of adding a lot of fun foam to elevate him & keep him from flattening out. I took some extra pics to show what it looks like. Two of the turkey bodies were scored down the middle & one was attached on either side of the front turkey, then a flat turkey body was attached to the back side. The feathers were scored w/ a piercing tool & half were attached to the back of the front turkey & half attached to the back turkey, giving it even more of a dimensional look.

This is the turkey front.

Here’s the bottom view, showing the the extra, scored turkey bodies attached to the front & back turkeys.

Here’s a side view, showing the feathers split between the front & back turkey bodies.

Another side view, showing where I added a pop dot to stabilize it. It’s really not necessary, as the folded side turkeys really help it keep its shape.

The white & rust colored ovals were die cut, the greeting added & attached to a die cut piece of designer paper.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

I made this card for the Color Challenge on Splitcoast (CC812). The colors are coral, curry & cinnamon. I don’t have any of today’s colors so I got as close as I could. Since I blended the coral color onto the yellow leaves it looks more orange than anything. All I can say about that Crushed Curry color is gee..I thought the Starfruit color was hideous & turns out curry makes it look a little better. So there’s that in the sort of plus column.
This card (or maybe it’s me) has’s totally a case of can’t see the forest for the trees. I’m working away putting all those teeny tiny leaves on there, arranging the pumpkins, etc. Then I see it..wonderful looking door to nowhere. No house (or else it’s a very, very narrow house, lol). This so reminds me of a trip my sis & I made to NC. On the way back, we saw a nice little house w/ a carport. The carport had a garage door. I still can’t figure that one out. It was still open on the other 3 sides. I guess that’s why this card is similar to that carport.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

It’s my pleasure to host the Splitcoast Featured Stamper Challenge (FS711) this week & a big congrats to Patti! She has a lovely gallery & I chose THIS card to case. I kept the fall them & multi colors, but I used different images & instead of emboss resist, I black embossed onto a shaving cream bg.

For my card, I used a shaving cream bg I made a while back & I thought the colors would be perfect for a fall card. I die cut it then put it into my Misti & stamped this wonderful, new veined leaves bg in black & black embossed it on top. I love the bit of shine & deep black the embossing gives to the image. It’s backed w/ a black, inside scallop die cut panel & I used a smaller white one to stamp the greeting on. I wanted it to stand out a bit more, so I used a couple of rectangle dies to cut a narrow black frame to put around the greeting.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
