For the Splitcoast Inspiration Challenge (IC740) we have Stencil Girl Shop. They have some wonderful stencils, but it was a bit tough at first for me..I tend to be inspired by color first & it was all in black & white! So I headed over to the blog & found lots of color. THIS is my inspiration..the color bands reminded me of a rainbow, so that’s the direction I went.

I started by stamping & coloring the image, then used my into the window techinque to cut around the top, then inserted the stitched rainbow die behind it. I colored each rainbow strip then put them back behind the image. A little Wink of Stella gave them a nice sparkle.

Just to give it a finished edge, I added a narrow yellow strip at the bottom of the rainbow, then stamped the greeting.

Here are the Copics I used:

For the Inspiration Challenge we’re headed across the pond to a lovely site. I chose THIS for my inspiration.

My card today took way longer that I planned on spending but that’s how it goes sometimes. I wanted a twig wreath w/ stars on it but I wanted them to be a silver/gold mix & look a little rustic. The stars were pretty easy. I die cut them then covered them w/ a mix of silver ink on the inside & gold ink around the edges then sprinkled on 2 different embossing powders. One is a gilded gold (mostly clear w/ gold flecks) & the other was a stardust powder (mostly clear w/ little sparkles & a hint of silver). I did the same for the grosgrain ribbon die & bow die cut. On the wreath, I die cut it out of brown then used the same gold ep just in places here & there. Then part that took too long happened because I thought w/ the open area in the center, why not make it a shaker? But the sequins looked too bright & shiny. So I did the embossing again on a piece of ivory & die cut the sequins using a sequin die. Big trouble! Most the embossing flaked right off. So….I had piece sticker paper w/ most of the stickers gone & just the borders left. I peeled it off & stuck my sequins to the sticky side & embossed them again. That worked. I should have thought of that first! Then I put it all together & stamped half of the greeting on the front w/ Versa Clair nocturne & sprinkle the gilded gold powder on it & embossed it. You can see it in the close up but head on, it just looks black.

Here’s the inside.

For the Splitcoast Inspiration Challenge, Brenda chose a fun site, Just for Fun Flags. And after browsing a while, I chose THIS as my inspiration.

For my Halloween card, I stamped & colored the Witch Legs on an arched die cut. The stars were stamped on the purple w/ Distress oxide shaded lavender. I die cut the stars border out of a lighter purple & also white & used some of the white ones to fill in the purple outlines. I added stickles in some areas for a little sparkle.

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