For the Splitcoast Inspiration Challenge (IC797), we have a site of colorful rugs. I was inspired by THIS rug for the pretty blue poppies.

To make my card, I stamped the individual poppies, leaves & stems on the main panel then stamped a couple extra poppies. After coloring everything, I die cut the extra poppies w/ their matching dies & popped them up a bit. The main panel was die cut w/ a slimline rectangle & along w/ doing the out of the box on the outsides, I also moved the bottom of the die up & cut the panel shorter (aka resizing). I used regular stitched rectangle dies for the lime & cobalt panels, then cut them narrower to place behind the poppy panel. The greeting was die cut w/ a tag die & for this, I cut one end, turned the die around & cut the other end so both ends would be the same.

Here are the Copics I used for the poppies.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

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.

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.
