It’s my turn & my pleasure to host the Inspiration Challenge (IC704) Challenge & we’re headed to The Crown Prints. They have a lot of fun prints & I was inspired by THIS one. I just received this new kite flying pig image & when I saw the pig print, that sealed the deal

To make my card, I had a little square already cut & noticed it was about the right size so I stamped Leonard onto it & colored in the bg. He & his kite were stamped again, colored & fussy cut to add on top. I used an embossing folder for the larger bg..I thought it kind of mimicked what air currents would look like & added a single kite flying away on top. These two panels are layered w/ bright blue & the greeting was stamped directly on the card front.

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

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Congrats to Cheryl, the newest Featured Stamper (FS640) on Splitcoast! She’s an avid scrapper & I admit, I know next to nothing about scrapping. Sooooo, I picked her Father’s Day layout to case. I kept the Father’s Day theme & used a frame collage that reminded me of a scrapbook layout. I used different images, colors & made mine a card.

This collection of frames gave me a lot of options to use a bunch of images or partial images & fill it in. Rather than mask the frames & stamp inside, I chose to cut out the centers of the frames. I knew I wanted the golfer kind of in & out of the frame so it was easier to do this by cutting out the insides of the frames. After coloring all the images, I arranged them inside the frames & stamped the greeting underneath. I had to cut around parts of  the golfer to fit him inside & outside the frame. 

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

We have a lovely site for the Splitcoast Inspiration Challenge (IC689) this week. And I was really taken with the items on THIS page. I really like the almost magical colors.

To make my fantasy scene, I stamped the different toadstools, masking a little here & there, then colored them. I did my out of the box along the top and added the panel w/ the colored tree slice behind it. The extra toadstool & little frog were fussy cut & added.  I thought a couple of dragonflies would fit in so I added those, as well.

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