It’s my pleasure to host the Splitcoast Inspiration Challenge (IC896) this week and I chose Running with Sisters & their Pinterest Board. THIS was my inspiration. I loved the flowers & bright orange color.

For my mini slimline card, I die cut the panel & sponged on the apricot & nectar inks for my background, only going about 3/4 of the way up. Then I stamped a bunch of the 3 sizes of daisies onto copy paper and die cut them all to use as masks. I had already decided to bleach the petals but I needed the masks to arrange where to stamp, then mask the ones that needed it.

After stamping the daises w/ Versafine Clair ink (I used this because Memento just doesn’t stand up to the bleach very well), I used a synthetic paint brush to bleach the petals. FYI..the paint bristles  need to be synthetic because bleach will totally destroy natural bristles, so go ahead & use a cheap synthetic one. Depending on the ink color, bleach will usually not take the paper back to white. Since I used a red-orange, after bleaching, I got an off white. I also stamped 3 more daisies onto white & die cut them. These 3 are popped up w/ fun foam.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Congrats to Kathy, the newest Featured Stamper! She has a lovely gallery & I chose THIS card to case. I kept the shaker & cute animals but used different stamps, dies, colors & made mine a winter card instead of a birthday card.

For my shaker card, I die cut the cute little critters & winter paper along w/ a scallop frame to go around the opening. I used a cellophane pkg, put large glitter inside then sealed the end & attached it behind the critters in the window. I added a fun foam frame behind to give it some lift for the shaker element. The greeting was actually stamped on the lt blue/grey panel behind the opening, but the glitter covered it too much so I stamped the greeting again & cut it to add on top of the shaker. I used a Sakura clear stardust glitter pen on the scarves of all the animals to add a little extra sparkle


Here are the Copics I used for everything except the fox:

The fox was colored earlier & here are the Copics for him:

For the Splitcoast Inspiration Challenge (IC895), we’re visiting Mud Pie & their Pinterest Boards where I found THIS lovely picture. I really liked all the hearts in different papers so I based my card on that.

My card is pretty easy..I die cut the white background panel w/ a stitched rectangle then ran it thru w/ the quilted stitch piercing die. All the hearts were die cut out of various watercolor & shaving cream background scraps I had in my stash. I elected not to use the open outlines & used only the solid centers of the hearts. After arranging them, I stamped & die cut the greeting then added a narrow turquoise layer underneath.

The hearts were all popped up just a bit before attaching to the white pierced layer.

Thanks
