Today’s Inspiration Challenge (IC746) has a lot to inspire! I used THIS picture  as inspiration for my card. They were using an alcohol ink bg & alcohol lift ink so I made a reddish  AI bg & used the lift ink to stamp the stripes, then die cut the flowers. 

The circle/squares die was used for the bg & I put a piece of blue/green shaving cream bg behind it as contrast to the red flowers. Then I couldn’t decide how to arrange the flowers. I bet that never happens to you!  The angled corner piece was hanging out so I told it to suit up, stamped the greeting on it & tucked the flowers inside. For a touch of sparkle, I added a few clear sequins.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Keep safe!

For the Splitcoast Inspiration Challenge (IC711) we’re heading over to the Audubon Society. One of my fave places. I get their newsletters in my email & their address labels…I just love everything to do w/ birds. My inspiration was THIS illustration of the painted bunting. I love all the colors!

My card is really CAS..I die cut the leaf brand & little birds out of a multicolor shaving cream bg I made quite a while ago. I die cut the same branch out of some black c/s & also into the front of a white panel. The black branch was inserted into the negative die cut space & the multicolor version was attached offset, on top. I did a similar stack w/ the Hugs die cut & the tiny birds.

Here’s the inside.

It’s my turn & my pleasure to host the Splitcoast Featured Stamper Challenge (FS645). So a big congrats to Michelle! She has a lovely gallery & after browsing her entire gallery, I kept coming back to THIS. I kept the Hot Air Balloon theme & layout, but I used dies instead of a stamp, different colors & a shaving cream bg instead of a watercolor bg.
 My version is pretty simple..I sponged a white piece of c/s w/ yellow & orange Distress inks, then die cut one of just the yellow for the outline & the inserts out of the red/orange part. The greeting was white embossed on black & the sky circle is a remnant piece of  shaving cream bg.

Here’s the inside. I used the negatives of the balloon & clouds as a stencil to sponge thru them.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
