For the Inspiration Challenge (IC901), we’re visiting a Pinterest Board of Crafty Morning, where I was inspired by the technique in THIS video & also by the picture of THIS sunflower bouquet.

So, I pulled out a box of paint chips I have & selected some colors I liked. I used a die that cuts multiple circles to save a little time. The variegated paint chip colors were glued to a white bg in an attempted ray pattern. It’s not perfect, but I like the colors spreading out like they do.

The sunflower is a layered set, so very easy to stamp the outline, then fill in the colors w/ the solid layers. I made 2 of them then die cut them. One was used for the top flower & the second one I cut apart, popping up the center on top of the 1st flower, & the petals were attached underneath.

These are the little bins w/ all the circles cut out of the paint chips.

The first few paint chips, I wasted some time trying to poke all the circles out. The paint chips are thick & have a coating of some sort so most of the circles tended to stay in place. When I stopped poking them out, I found it was much easier to keep them in place & poke out the colors in order I wanted to use them. Worked out much better this way!

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Congrats to Dina, the newest Featured Stamper (FS839)! She has such an amazing gallery & I chose THIS card to case. I kept the flowers off to one side, but switched sides, used different images, dies & colors. I really like the way she used half the image, but I didn’t have an image like that & in the end, I couldn’t make myself cut these flowers in half, so….I pushed them off to the side instead.

My daisies were all colored & die cut. I had to do a little fancy work w/ the dies, since these were already masked & stamped as one. I added the freehand border stamp to the edges of the white deckled panel & stamped the second half of the greeting, replacing the You w/ a die cut one. I used the second largest mini slimline die to cut the lavender panel & placed it behind the white one.

Here are the Copics I used:

On a side note, I chose these colors because of a color worksheet I did for an earlier card (which you can see HERE). I didn’t use the blues/purples on that card, but I saved the work sheet & used those colors for my card today.

It’s my turn to host the Inspiration Challenge on Splitcoast (IC900) & I chose a really fun site w/ lots of ideas..The Refab Diaries & their Pinterest Board where I found THIS picture. I thought the bright colors & hodgepodge of items would be perfect for the image I wanted to use.

After stamping & coloring this party image, I fussy cut it (actually pretty easy since it’s just a rounded outline). I popped it up just a bit on a mini slimline bg & backed it w/ a piece of polka dot paper. The banner was stamped separately, fussy cut & popped up on the original banner area. For this greeting & the large Happy & Birthday words, I used a combo of Versaclair Glamorous & Purple Delight, stamping one then the other on top of it,  to get the right color to match the paper (the Misti is essential for this). After I die the words, I used the leftover part as a reverse mask & stenciled in the pinkish shadow.

You can see the finished Happy at the top & the reverse mask/stencil of Birthday at the bottom.

Here the stenciling/sponging is finished.

I placed the stamped, die cut words slightly offset to allow the shadow to show behind them.

Here are the Copics I used for the image:
