For the Splitcoast Inspiration Challenge (IC766), we are headed to Allen Designs Studio & after much browsing, I chose THIS for my inspiration.


My card features these cute little bees & sunflowers on a Slimline card. I’m really loving these new dies! After I die cut the white front & all the flowers & bees, I put them together. For the background, I found a leftover piece of mixed media I made, who knows how long ago, using metallic acrylic paints. I liked the colors so I die cut circles bigger than the openings (to show thru the little dots surrounding the circles), then cut them again w/ smaller circles. I used a honeycomb die on the smaller circles, then put them back inside, leaving out a few of the hexagons. 

Thanks so much for stopping by!

It’s my pleasure to host the Splitcoast Inspiration Challenge (IC765) & we’re headed to a women’s clothing store called Miss Vogues. There are so many wonderful things there & I could probably create a card a day based on the inspiration I found. For this card I was inspired by THIS dress. It was easier to reverse the colors, though. 

After stamping my fashionista, I decided I wanted a full skirt like the inspiration pic, so I drew in more skirt then colored it all. When it came time to die cut her, I die cut to her waist, then turned it around & die cut up to the hem of her skirt then fussy cut around the new, wider skirt. The white side panel was die cut w/ a circles bg die, backed w/ bright yellow, then I added a few cobalt circles here & there. Dk blue stickles were added to the blue dots on her dress.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

A big congrats to Cathy, the newest Featured Stamper (FS699) on Splitcoast! She has such a big, beautiful gallery it was hard to pick just one. For my card, I cased THIS card of Cathy’s. I liked the little rectangle image w/ the greeting underneath, so I kept those. I used different dies,  a polka dot dp & totally changed the theme as well as flipping the layout. Yeah..I’m not sure how the cactus turned into a cafe set, but there it is.

For my little cafe scene, I die cut the patio set 3 white, gray & hot pink, then stacked them. I shaped the umbrella a bit & added little pink birds & a flower vase. I came across the gray & pink polka dot paper & IRL, the gray frame accents it really well. But I’ve found most grays really freak out my camera. Anyway, lots of layered frames were stacked because it helped them show up better & I noticed Cathy likes a lot of layers.
