For the Inspiration Challenge (IC901), we’re visiting a Pinterest Board of Crafty Morning, where I was inspired by the technique in THIS video & also by the picture of THIS sunflower bouquet.

So, I pulled out a box of paint chips I have & selected some colors I liked. I used a die that cuts multiple circles to save a little time. The variegated paint chip colors were glued to a white bg in an attempted ray pattern. It’s not perfect, but I like the colors spreading out like they do.

The sunflower is a layered set, so very easy to stamp the outline, then fill in the colors w/ the solid layers. I made 2 of them then die cut them. One was used for the top flower & the second one I cut apart, popping up the center on top of the 1st flower, & the petals were attached underneath.

These are the little bins w/ all the circles cut out of the paint chips.

The first few paint chips, I wasted some time trying to poke all the circles out. The paint chips are thick & have a coating of some sort so most of the circles tended to stay in place. When I stopped poking them out, I found it was much easier to keep them in place & poke out the colors in order I wanted to use them. Worked out much better this way!

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Congrats to Dina, the newest Featured Stamper (FS839)! She has such an amazing gallery & I chose THIS card to case. I kept the flowers off to one side, but switched sides, used different images, dies & colors. I really like the way she used half the image, but I didn’t have an image like that & in the end, I couldn’t make myself cut these flowers in half, so….I pushed them off to the side instead.

My daisies were all colored & die cut. I had to do a little fancy work w/ the dies, since these were already masked & stamped as one. I added the freehand border stamp to the edges of the white deckled panel & stamped the second half of the greeting, replacing the You w/ a die cut one. I used the second largest mini slimline die to cut the lavender panel & placed it behind the white one.

Here are the Copics I used:

On a side note, I chose these colors because of a color worksheet I did for an earlier card (which you can see HERE). I didn’t use the blues/purples on that card, but I saved the work sheet & used those colors for my card today.

A big congrats to my dear friend Kittie as the newest Featured Stamper (FS896) on Splitcoast! Does she have a fabulous gallery? Definitely! And it was so hard to choose, but I finally picked THIS card to case. I kept the white on white & formed flowers, but I used different dies & stamps & turned mine horizontal instead of a vertical.

For my card, I die cut the main white panel with a stitched rectangle then used a new piercing die for the flower bg. I die cut the fancy center panels, stamped the greeting not he smaller one, then added the white flowers & clear gems.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
