For the Inspiration Challenge on Splitcoast this week, I was inspired by THIS picture on the Plow & Hearth site Brenda chose. I turned the rain boots into cowboy boots & hydrangeas into roses, but otherwise they are the same, lol.

What a week it’s been around here..we’ve had so much rain & thunderstorms, I’m really glad now that I bought a pair of rubber rain boots. Every night I have to slosh thru the front yard to bring in the bird feeders. If I don’t, then I have to spend a couple of hours searching thru the woods for them because the raccoons will get them & drag them off into the woods (ask me how I know). Then I slosh thru the yard every morning to put them back. I also don’t want the bear that got into everyone’s trash a couple of week ago to come down the drive after the feeders. But my rain boots, while they have roses on them, are nowhere as stylin’ as these! 

To make my card, I stamped the big rose, masked it, then stamped the smaller one twice. After masking the roses, I stamped the (new!) boot, masked it, then stamped the one behind it. Everything was colored, then I did a little out of the box when I die cut the panel. The greeting was stamped & colored & I added a die cut swirly (it reminded me of a lasso) & a fussy cut hat (new!). Then I added glitter glue & a few crystals. 

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

SW Birthday by Julie Warner https://thewritestuff.justwritedesigns.com/?p=28123

This is for the Splitcoast Inspiration Challenge (IC654) & Stacy chose the Vera Bradley site. Lovely colors & patterns there! I was inspired by THIS tote. I just love the colors & Southwest pattern.
  SW Birthday by Julie Warner https://thewritestuff.justwritedesigns.com/?p=28123
To make my SW background, I applied Distress oxide inks to the inside of the embossing folder (Embossing Folder Stamping) then placed my die cut piece of white card stock inside. I actually used what would normally be the back side because I wanted just the lines & not the inside of the pattern. Leaving the c/s just where it was, I added a little more ink here & there where needed. When satisfied, I went ahead & ran it thru the Big Shot to emboss it because I also wanted the texture. The big Happy was die cut then stamped & double stacked on another white piece to give it some depth. The coral pieces were leftovers that seemed to fit in.

Here’s a look at the inside.

For the Splitcoast Inspiration Challenge (IC647), we have Replacements, LTD. as our site. It’s a beautiful site & I have used their wonderful replacement service in the past to fill in missing or broken pieces of china. They also helped me identify some crystal that belonged to my great grandmother. While I was browsing the casual china, I happened on THIS picture (also below). It looked like a Cinco de Mayo fiesta to me so I went w/ a southwest theme.


To make the serape on the side, I used two plaid images, which until you stamp them across each other, are just stripes. I inked the stripes using Tombow markers in red, yellow & green then colored a wide strip & used fringe scissors on it to make the lower border. The image was stamped, colored & die cut w/ a little out of the box to keep the boot tip & rope from being cut off. I used Prismacolor pencils to add the sunset colors behind the image. For the greeting, I stamped it once in the Morocco ink, moved it a tad & stamped it again in brown ink to get the slight shadow.

Here’s a look at the inside & below are the Copics & Tombows I used.
