For the Splitcoast Inspiration Challenge (IC771), we’re headed to Stuffed Safari. They have some really cute stuffed critters & was drawn to the bats & cats on THIS page.

My card today is pretty easy. I die cut a white panel then masked off an area on either side & sponged the colors inside the unmasked area. Put it in my Misti & stamped the spooky tree image a few times. Just to give it a little punch & imitate a layer, I added a couple of thin black strips on either side. Stamped the greeting & some bats & done!

Here’s a look at the inside.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

There’s a new challenge in town on Splitcoast..just started up this summer. It’s the Watercolor Wednesday Challenge & today the challenge (WCW015) is watercolored die cuts. I think the aim to watercolor on die cuts. I went about it in the opposite direction, but I hope that will still count.

This skyline die is brand new & is only pre-order right now, but will start shipping soon. I had it in my mind to make a city scene at Christmas so I rather randomly painted a piece of watercolor paper w/ greens & reds. I used Brushos & mixed the powders in a plastic palette before dropping them, wet into wet, onto the w/c paper. I used a heat gun to quickly dry it & this stopped the color from totally blending out & gave me some hard edges & the splotches I was looking for. After it was dry, I die cut it. I also die cut a piece of scratch paper & used the negative top part as a mask & sponged in the background buildings before popping the die cut version up w/ fun foam & attaching it. Before I put it all on the slimline card front, I splattered it w/ white acrylic paint, then stamped the greeting (new & also soon to be released!). A narrow stitched hill was attached on top to represent snow on the ground. I dotted some of the snow w/ stickles for a little sparkle.

Thank so much for stopping by!

It’s my pleasure to host the Splitcoast Inspiration Challenge (IC770) & we’re headed to a shop called Pippin Poppycock. They also have a fab Pinterest Board which is where I found my inspiration. I adore rainbows of color so THIS picture really appealed to me.


I sponged a rainbow using the different colors of Color Fuse ink then die cut a narrow panel using a Slimline die. It’s like the resizing technique except instead of making it longer, I cut just past the halfway mark, turned it around & moved the bottom of the die up, matching the stitch lines. Temporary adhesive was added to the back & I placed it on my bg panel & put it into my Misti to stamp the wildflowers. I removed the rainbow panel & stamped the wildflowers again so there wouldn’t be any white spaces. After I stamped the greeting & permanently attached the panel, I added stickles to the flowers.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
