For the Splitcoast Inspiration Challenge (IC854) we’re visiting a Pinterest Board called The Postmans Knock where I found THIS picture.

I wanted a watercolor look to my branches so I put a die cut piece of water color paper into my Misti to allow me to stamp the same branch w/ different shades of inks. On the first impression, I misted the branch w/ a little water. After stamping w/ 2 or 3 colors, I also used some water based makers to add a little more depth to the leaves. The greeting was stamped on a separate piece of w/c paper along w/ the butterfly. I used a water brush to spread the ink colors inside the butterfly then stamped it again using the darkest of the teal inks. I repeated this on a scrap of w/c paper & cut that butterfly out to pop up on top of the base image. The greeting layer was popped up on top to give some dimension.

Stickles was added to the butterfly & gems attached on the branches.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

A big congrats to Cindy, the newest Featured Stamper (FS790) on Splitcoast! She has such a lovely gallery & I chose THIS card to case. I used similar colors & kept the flowers, but turned mine vertical, used die cut flowers instead of stamped & made mine a just because instead of a Christmas card.

For my mini slimline card, I die cut the white panel w/ a diamond quilt cover plate & backed it w/ a piece of coral. On the coral square on top, I did a technique I haven’t done in in a long time. I had a thick, square block of fun foam & I heated it w/ my heat tool. If you try this, you have to keep it moving & not get too close to the foam. Heat it for a about 30 seconds or so then immediately press it firmly to the surface you want to impress. In my case, it was the same cover die. Here’s a pic of it after I impressed it & inked it.

On my card, I inked it w/ the 4 Color Fuse inks then stamped it onto plain white card stock. I trimmed it & backed it w/ a square stitched die. The flowers were also die cut & inked w/ the same inks, & I added some glitter to the flower tops.

The greeting was stamped, fussy cut & added to a small label tag. The coral layer was made by cutting two & placing on top & one below.

A big congrats to Nancy, the newest Featured Stamper (FS787) on Splitcoast! She has a lovely gallery & I chose THIS card to case. I kept the birds/leaves theme but used different dies, slightly different colors & made mine a Spring card.

My card is fairly simple..I die cut everything, lol. The birdhouse is popped up, as is the leaf frame & Spring word. I actually put the Spring word w/ the shadow back into the space it was cut from to give it a slightly embedded look. Stickles was added to the flower centers & inside the heart on the birdhouse.

I did trim down the green leaf frame a bit in order to have a little show around the edges. Sorry, I think the tiny flowers die is out of stock right now, but please check back.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
