For the Inspiration Challenge (IC911), we’re visiting Lumas & their Pinterest Board where I found THIS picture for my inspiration.

For my fun in the sun mini slimline card, I first stamped & colored the palm trees then I used a couple of stencils & a reverse circle mask to sponge in the sand, water & big yellow sun. I filled in the clouds using another stencil. The girl & beach bag were colored & die cut along w/ the beach chair.

I added a narrow royal blue layer & stamped the greeting across the top. The girl  & bag were popped up a bit w/ foam.

Here are the Copics I used:

It’s my pleasure to host the Splitcoast Inspiration Challenge (IC896) this week and I chose Running with Sisters & their Pinterest Board. THIS was my inspiration. I loved the flowers & bright orange color.

For my mini slimline card, I die cut the panel & sponged on the apricot & nectar inks for my background, only going about 3/4 of the way up. Then I stamped a bunch of the 3 sizes of daisies onto copy paper and die cut them all to use as masks. I had already decided to bleach the petals but I needed the masks to arrange where to stamp, then mask the ones that needed it.

After stamping the daises w/ Versafine Clair ink (I used this because Memento just doesn’t stand up to the bleach very well), I used a synthetic paint brush to bleach the petals. FYI..the paint bristles  need to be synthetic because bleach will totally destroy natural bristles, so go ahead & use a cheap synthetic one. Depending on the ink color, bleach will usually not take the paper back to white. Since I used a red-orange, after bleaching, I got an off white. I also stamped 3 more daisies onto white & die cut them. These 3 are popped up w/ fun foam.

Congrats to Gerry, the newest Featured Stamper (FS827) on Splitcoast! She has a wonderful gallery & I chose THIS card to case. I kept most of the colors, the southwest theme & layout, but I used different dies and made mine a Christmas card.

I started my card by masking a large circle for the moon, and another for the sky area then sponged in the colors for the ground. After reversing the mask, I sponged in the sky colors. The arbor and 2 portions of the fence were die cut out of white along w/ the longhorn skull. The wagon wheel and cowboy hat were die cut out of Kraft and sponged w/ brown inks. I used green for the wreath and cactus dies. After arranging and attaching all the dies, I stamped the curved greeting on the right,
