For the Splitcoast Inspiration Challenge (IC782), we’re headed to Traditions.I was inspired by THIS display picture. All the Christmas items & colors combined reminded me of this background stamp.

After coloring it all in, it was die cut & I used a scallop bubble edge die for the blue layer. Since it was basically the same size as my main panel, I used my resizing technique to make 1 scallop longer & 1 scallop wider so it would show up. The greeting was stamped on a small rectangle & layered w/ a blue half scallop panel & a slightly bigger white panel.

Here are the Copics I used. If you’re wondering about the V06, it was used to underpin the reds in the deepest shadow areas.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Congrats to Jane, the newest Featured Stamper (FS718) on Splitcoast! Jane has a lovely gallery & I chose THIS card to case. I kept the most of the layout & the lattice element, but I used different stamps, dies & made mine a Christmas card.

For my card, I had this wreath colored quite a while ago, just waiting to be made into a card, so I die cut it, using my out of the box technique (yep.there were a lot of parts out of the box on this one!), & backed it w/ a dk green circle layer. On the lattice, I used a slimline sized die but I only cut it part way, to fill the space I had available on the stitched rectangle cut piece. I’ll let you in on a little secret…the bottom part actually went a little too far. So I glued a narrow strip behind the piece, put it back in the stitched rectangle die, & ran it thru again. The patch is invisible! So don’t despair if this happens to you. After putting it all together, I added some sequins to the lattice & backed it w/ the same dk green.

Here are the Copics I used on the wreath.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

We have a very colorful sock site, called Joy of Socks, for our Inspiration Challenge (IC747). I chose THIS pair of socks for my inspiration. Good thing I kept the pic, because the socks have been removed from the site!

For my get well card, I die cut the various succulents out of teal, lime & scraps of watercolored paper then die cut the white pots. I wanted a large window, so I used my die  resizing technique to make the (original window is only 4 panes) window half again wider & longer. I’m not gonna lie..it was a little tricky but it worked. The valance was cut using a curved border die & fun orangey-red paper. Another, subtle print was added behind the window & I popped the whole thing up just a tad w/ cardboard. I wanted a little pop of color, so I added some little red flowers to a couple of the plants.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Keep safe & be well!
