It’s my pleasure to host the Splitcoast Inspiration Challenge (IC804) this week & we’re headed to Nina Cloak &/0r their Pinterest Board. There were so many lovely patterns on their items, but I really liked the split negative look of THIS dress.

After stamping, coloring & die cutting the flowers, I die cut the white & black bgs w/ the rect stitch dies. Then I stacked them & die cut the stitched hills diagonally; I cut them at the same time in order to have them match exactly. Then I split them apart a bit & added a strip of lavender in between. To compensate for this spread, after putting the panels together, I used the rectangle die again, matching up the stitch lines across the top & bottom. This could have been done all in one step, by putting the panels together first, then die cutting the whole thing. But I didn’t think of adding the lavender strip until after I’d cut them the first time. Doesn’t it always seem to work out that way? But I’ll remember it next time!

Here are the Copics I used:

It’s my pleasure to host the Splitcoast Featured Stamper Challenge (FS741) this week! So a big congrats to Heather, the newest FS. She has a beautiful gallery & I chose THIS card to case. I kept the layout & green (because I LOVE greens), but used different images & dies & made my card a floral instead of a St. Patrick’s Day card.

For my card, after stamping, coloring & die cutting the poppies, I did the stems & leaves & fussy cut them to add them to my white circle. The smaller bg was sponged w/ the lime greens & a little teal on the ends. The larger bg is one I made a while back w/ a die cut & some Brushos, but I wasn’t crazy how it looked alone. But it worked great behind my sponged layer.
Here’s how it looked by itself. See? Nothing to write home about. I took some die cut leaves to use as a mask, then sprinkled the Brushos & spritzed w/ water.

I put the sponged panel into my Misti & stamped w/ the Versaclair then put all my layers together & added a few gems.

Here are the Copics I used for the poppies:

For the Inspiration Challenge (IC799), we’re headed to Homebnc Pinterest Board where I found THIS picture.

On my card, I’m using some new dies & greetings from Rubbernecker Stamps. I first die cut the large pot our of an alcohol ink bg. It’s a little hard to tell, but it’s pretty shiny & metallic in real life. The stems of all the flowers were cut out of a few greens & the flowers were all cut out of white that sponged different pastel colors of ink on to get all the colors. The bg was cut w/ a couple of slimline dies & I placed a larger turquoise layer behind them. To get the inside frame, I cut the white piece twice, using 2 sizes of the die set, then put middle (frame part) back.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
