A big congrats to Holley, the newest Featured Stamper  (FS712) on Splitcoast! She has a wonderful gallery & I chose THIS card to case. I kept the horizontal layout w/ the 4 critters, so I kept that, but I used gnomes instead of animals, different colors & left off the ribbon.

For my card, I colored & die cut these cute little gnomes, then die cut the large white layer. I used an inside rounded squares die to cut out the 3 openings then backed it w/ a white lattice pattern piece. The greeting was stamped on one of the square cutouts & the other 2 were backed w/ a shades of purple paint chip. I also used it to cut the line of grass across the bottom.

Here are the Copics I used. Since I colored them separately, there’s a different pic for each gnome.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

For today’s Inspiration Challenge (IC603), I chose This scrapbook page. I don’t really do scapbooking so mine is a card  😀 but I liked the silhouette images against the sky. 
For the background, I used the Wrinkle Free Distress technique by smooshing the brown Distress inks onto my craft sheet, misting pretty heavily, then pressing mostly the bottom half of my water color paper on top. (Repeat this until you get the coverage you want.) After wiping the sheet off, I repeated this for the top half of my paper using the blue inks. Since watching paper dry is not one of my strong suits, I dried it w/ my heat gun then put  into my Misti and stamped the hiker &  trees w/ the sepia Versfine. I had to stamp them each about 2 or 3 times to get a good impression on this watercolor paper. I used a white marker to edge the panel & the white Prismacolor pencil to highlights to some of the rocks. I had a large brown paint chip & I liked the names of the colors so I let them show at the bottom. The greeting was added on a circle & backed w/ a larger circle from the paint chip.

Here’s a look at the inside.

Space Bday cu 00233

Welcome to the North Coast Creations January Release! We have some fun, Fun, FUN new images & dies for you this month & you’ll want them all! Space & aliens are so hot right now & these are just too cute for words, so sit & take a look. Space Bday 00232
On my space card, I wanted a shimmery, deep space look to highlight the white of the moon, spaceship & astronaut. I used to live in Houston, TX which happens to be Space City & if you’re ever there, be sure to check out the NASA Space Center…it’s amazing! Anyway, for my background, I started w/ black & since I wanted it shimmery, I dug out some long neglected Opalite inks & a stippling brush & added the Milky Way looking areas. I used the Sparkling Stars dies to cut a reverse mask then sponged the stars onto the area w/ the platinum ink. Space Bday xcu 00239
Then I die cut the black panel w/ the Leafy Edged Borders & added the die cut moon, ship & astronaut images w/ the matching dies. The greeting was stamped onto a large Star & I also added some shimmery black stars in the blue band. The blue c/s has a kind of light, felty texture look to it.

Here’s a look at the inside & below it are the Copics I used. Space Bday inside 00241

Monster Hug cu 00221
On my second card, I stamped these adorable Little Monsters, colored & die cut w/ the matching dies.  I came across this acrylic painted background in my stash (done who knows how long ago) & the colors went perfectly w/ the images. For the coral layer, I used the  Circles  & Double Stitched Circles to die cut it, then used a mask I made w/ these same dies to sponge some white & marigold inks onto it. When I placed it over the bg & put the monsters inside, there was a little too much going on so I found a shades of mint paint chip, die cut it w/ the Double Stitched Rectangles & placed it behind the coral layer. Much better! The greeting was added on a white circle w/ one of the leftover coral stitched circles around it. Monster Hug 00223
Below, is a look at the inside & under it are the Copics I used. For the monster, I used the reverse mask of the monster as a stencil, added the color then stamped the image on top. More sponged circles were added down the left side.
