It’s my pleasure to host the Splitcoast Inspiration Challenge (IC804) this week & we’re headed to Nina Cloak &/0r their Pinterest Board. There were so many lovely patterns on their items, but I really liked the split negative look of THIS dress.

After stamping, coloring & die cutting the flowers, I die cut the white & black bgs w/ the rect stitch dies. Then I stacked them & die cut the stitched hills diagonally; I cut them at the same time in order to have them match exactly. Then I split them apart a bit & added a strip of lavender in between. To compensate for this spread, after putting the panels together, I used the rectangle die again, matching up the stitch lines across the top & bottom. This could have been done all in one step, by putting the panels together first, then die cutting the whole thing. But I didn’t think of adding the lavender strip until after I’d cut them the first time. Doesn’t it always seem to work out that way? But I’ll remember it next time!

Here are the Copics I used:

A big congrats to Martina, the newest Featured Stamper (FS742) on Splitcoast! She has a beautiful gallery & I chose THIS card to case. I kept the flowers in the squares & slimline layout, but I used different images, dies, & different colors.

On my slimline card, I had the flower on the left already colored so I did 2 more to go with it. A dark maroon layer was cut to go behind it & I used a small square die to cut out where the windows were & leave a narrow border to frame my dahlia squares. The greeting  was added & I popped up the top white layer just a bit from the flowers.

For the Splitcoast Inspiration Challenge (IC803), we’re headed to Shop Sweet Lulu. They had quite a few things that caught my eye, but I kept coming back to THIS card. The hot pink hair & star shaped sunglasses really captured my attention.

For my card, I stamped, colored & die cut the Nala image, I die cut some stars for her sunglasses using gold & white glitter card. I had to practice that hot pink hair a couple of times on scrap to get the look I wanted. I popped up just a bit on a rounded corner rectangle & added a turquoise mat. It took me a while to figure out what to do about a bg to tie all the colors together. Then I found a piece I made a while back by spraying the inside of an embossing folder then running it thru the machine. It had the colors & kind of retro rock feel to it. After I put it all together, I added some stickles to the raised white lines on the bg. The greeting is part stamped, part die cut.
