Happy New Year! It’s my pleasure to host the first Inspiration Challenge (IC839) of 2022 over at Splitcoast & I’ve chosen a site called Distinctivs & their Pinterest Board where I was inspired by THIS pic & also THIS one.

For my baby shower card, after stamping, colors & die cutting the baby ellie, I die cut the 4 baby blocks out of pink & again out of white. I replaced the centers w/ the white & stamped the letters using Distress spun sugar. The umbrella was die cut out of a lg paint chip & the top was popped up a bit. I used a pair of rectangle dies to make the wide pink frame & I also popped it up w/ foam. The rest was just arranging it all on top of a gray bg & adding the little pink raindrops.

These are the Copics I used on the ellie:

It’s my turn to host the Featured Stamper Challenge (FS589) on Splitcoast. So a big congrats to Wanda, the newest Featured Stamper! She has a lovely gallery & I chose THIS to case. I kept the wheelbarrow full of flowers & most of the layout, but I used different images, different colors & added some little birds on a branch.

For my wheelbarrow, I wanted a softer look, so I stamped it in gray. It made it very close to a “no line” coloring & because the flowers are small, made it a little harder to color. I did the same to the little birds on the branch & fussy cut both. After I had the front linen panel layered to a soft lavender one, I lined up where I wanted the wheelbarrow & stamped just the little swirls in gray on the bg. 

Here’s the inside & below it are the Copics I used.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Paper: Staples 110# white, lavender, Neenah white linen
Ink: Memento London fog, tuxedo black
Accessories: Copics markers, Misti, Spellbinders A2 matting basics A, Victorian tag dies

Today’s Ways to Use It Challenge (WT605) is ways to use Umbrellas. It reminded me of this Wedding Shower card I made a while back & totally forgot to post!  double-umbrella-happiness-06183
I stamped the little love birds, greeting & umbrellas & colored them w/ Copics. I also did a third umbrella on a separate piece to cut out & pop up on top of the love birds. After dry embossing the panel, I thought it still looked a little empty in areas so I took out a black Micron pen & doodled the vines/flowers in the opposite corners then added a Candi dot to the upper left.

Here are the Copics I used.
Thanks so much for stopping by!
