For the Splitcoast Inspiration Challenge (IC768), we have Charish Pinterest Board. There is so much to see, I got lost for a while. I finally chose two…THIS & THIS. I liked the fall tree in the first, & the divided panels in the second.

I used this beautiful 2 part stamp set & some fall colors of Color Fuse inks to stamp the foliage part of the tree & black for the trunk. From the beginning, I knew I wanted to do a reflection scene, so I left plenty of room below the main image. It didn’t start out to be a slimline card, but I quickly realized it would have to be to get the reflection part in. For the reflection, I inked the trunk part of the image really well, then rolled a rubber brayer over it. I positioned the brayer below the main image & rolled it away from the main image to create the reflection. For the foliage part, I used the inks & a paintbrush to fill it in then sponged in the colors of the ground & water.

A few white highlights were added on the water then I used the stitched slimline dies to cut the image into 3 panels & backed it w/ rust.  (Check out the tutorial HERE. It works the same way, just in opposite..making the panels narrower instead of wider. Just be sure to match up the stitch lines when moving the die over.)The two leaves were stamped onto a separate piece I inked w/ more of the fall colors & die cut w/ the matching dies.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

For the Inspiration site (IC643) on Splitcoast, Anne chose Signals. I spent quite a bit of time browsing, but kept coming back to THIS. I just love the colors & cute little piggies. 
To make my little piggies card, I stamped little Miss Piggy on the right & then used the mirror image technique to stamp Mr. Piggy. After coloring, I fussy cut both & made little checked outfits for both. For the background, I put the Checkerboard Bg into my Misti & stamped the bottom 2 or 3 times to get it really dark, then moved the c/s & stamped the middle section a little lighter & the top section was stamped w/o reinking. The greeting was rearranged a bit to fit between the piggy pair.

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

Today’s Clean & Simple Challenge (CAS439) on Splitcoaststampers is Friendship & this should be perfect for a friend, to just drop a note to say hi.


I thought this  greeting would be perfect w/ the Big Mouth Bass (isn’t he a cutie?) w/ some wavesBubbles & dragonflies floating around. Only problem was, the Fishing Pole kinda faced the wrong direction. Misti & a piece of blank rubber to the rescue! (Here’s a tutorial so you can see how it’s done.) I put the fishing pole into my Misti & the blank rubber piece under it. Inked & stamped the fishing pole several times onto the rubber. Wanted to make sure I got good ink coverage. Then I place the white card stock on top of the rubber & rubbed it w/ my hand & presto! A reverse image! Then I added the fish, waves, bubbles & dragonflies. After coloring, I added a little Wink of Stella to the fish & dragonflies. Hopefully you can see it a bit in the closeup below.
