For the Splitcoast Inspiration Challenge (IC791) we’re headed to Shindigz (a party supply place) where I found THIS picture for my inspiration. I loved the color on the birches.

For my card, after die cutting the lt blue panel, I stamped it w/ the white ink using the dot bg. The birches were die cut & I used B66 & B32 Copics to shade the edges. The leaves on the bg were stamped using a couple of the blue ink & the ones on top were die cut & shaded w/ the same Copics.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

A big congrats to Trudy, the newest Featured Stamper on Splitcoast! She has a wonderful gallery & I chose THIS to case. I really did case her card..even though it may not look like it. I loved the color in the bg w/ the die cut on top so that’s what I kept. I used different colors, dies & sponging instead of brayering.

I took a few extra pics to show you how I got the color in precise areas & left a white highlight.

First, I attached the black die cut to the white card stock w/ temporary adhesive (pic above). Then I used the makeup brushes to apply the colors in specific areas.I didn’t worry about getting in on it since it’s black, I knew it wouldn’t show.

You can see the negative white image when I remove the die cut. I started to use it just like that, but then decided it added more drama to put the black die cut back in on top, but I shifted it slightly, to leave a white highlight on the right side (pic below). I like how it resembles stained glass.

The birthday greeting is part of a balloon image & trimmed off the balloons after die cutting it & attached it to an oval frame.

Welcome to May!  And it’s time for the Splitcoaststampers Fan Club May Christmas Challenge! We have a year of new Christmas Challenges!  You’ll need to be Fan Club member but that’s easy…just click the blue link to find out how. Bet you’re wondering what the challenge theme is..I’d love to tell you but you’ll have to go see for yourself.

My card started w/ the little square of blue watercolor bg. I wish I had made more of it, but this was all I had left of this particular one. So I framed w/ a mirror gold square frame & added some die cut stars & moon on it. The gold glitter trees & deer were die cut out of some gold glitter wrapping paper. For the moon, I did cut one out of the gold glitter & another out of white. Then I placed the white one back in the die, moved over a bit, to trim a little more of it so the gold glitter would show around the edges. The greeting was gold embossed & I used gold leafing pen to edge the white panel before attaching it to the card.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
