It’s my pleasure & my turn to host the Splitcoast Inspiration Challenge (IC718) & we’re headed to Piper Classics. They have a lot of lovely items & I was inspired by the colors in THIS picture.

I saw a similar card, a very long time ago but I can’t find it for anything, now that I’m looking for it. I think it was probably by Michelle Zindorf, but I’m not certain. Doesn’t it always happen that way? Anyway, it stuck in my head & I thought this would be a great way to use this Single Fall Tree image.

After I masked off the water area & sponged in the ground & bg tree line, I reversed the mask & sponged in the water. I used a few yellow & orange Copics to add the trees/bushes in the distance, then I put the tree image into my Misti & stamped it w/ Distress oxide inks in walnut & espresso. First one was stamped, then I moved the panel to stamp it again, & again, & again. I turned it upside down, lined the trees up, & stamped them in tea dye for the reflection trees. After all the trees were stamped, I added some white lines w/ a gel pen in the water & sponged a little walnut around the edges.

Here’s the inside.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

For the Inspiration Challenge (IC717) we have a tasty site full of beautiful cakes. I chose THIS cake for my inspiration. I really liked the woodgrain look & fall leaves on this cake.

On the bg, I stamped the wood fence bg onto kraft paper then sponged a couple of brown distress inks onto it & stamped a splatter bg in the same colors. The leaves were die cut out of another sponged bg I made using green, gold & red inks. The greeting was stamped w/ the Versaclair & popped up a little on a larger white circle w/ a kraft circle frame.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

A big congrats to Gracie, the newest Featured Stamper (FS655) on Splitcoast! She has such a sweet little gallery & after much browsing, I chose THIS card as my inspiration. I kept the Halloween theme & most of the layout, but turned mine vertical & used different images & slightly different colors.

I really love this Oct 31 square & I also love having a gradient color behind it. For this card, I measured to make sure I could fit 3 on a panel & they fit! Into the Misti it went. Stamped each one multiple times to get good coverage, then colored w/ Copics. 

For the greeting, I die cut the Happy part & used the solid part instead of the actually letters, then stamped the Halloween part of the Halloween Arc below it & added a little punched spider. Pretty easy & didn’t take a ton of time. 

Here are the Copics I used & also the inside.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
