It’s Inspiration Challenge day on Splitcoaststampers, my favorite challenge! Today’s challenge is IC346 ~ Rellique, a very interesting website with lots of vintage and repurposed items. I chose this Repurposed Vintage White Sail Hand Soap Can Lamp as my inspiration for my card. I used this coloring page for the sailboat and cut it with my Cameo. The waves were cut from a download from the Silhouette Online Store and the clouds were cut with a Memory Box Die. I stamped the sentiment from Stampin’ Up! Pendant Park in Midnight Muse, using my Stamp-a-Ma-Jig to position it on the cloud die cut and mounted all the pieces on a Midnight Muse card base. I am having a ball with my new Cameo, just wish I had more time to play!
Today’s challenge on Splitcoaststampers is the Friday Free for All Challenge F4A126…Weather or Not? The challenge is to make a card showing your weather. Well here in South Florida we are in our typical summer weather pattern, lots of rain and lots of sunshine, sometimes at the same time! I found this cute welly rain boot coloring page and used the print and cut feature on my new Silhouette Cameo to cut them out. I colored the boots with Stampin’ Up! Yo Yo Yellow and Pool Party Markers and mounted them on a Nestabilities die cut in Gable Green. I used Gable Green for the card base and a DCWV Summer Mat Stack paper for the background, matted in Pool Party. I stamped the sentiment from Stampin’ Up! Lots of Thoughts in Basic Back, punched with the Stampin’ Up! 1 1/4 inch Circle Punch, matted with the Stampin’ Up! 1 3/8 inch Circle Punch in Gable Green and a Stampin’ Up! Scallop Circle Punch in Yo Yo Yellow. The ribbon is a scrap that was on a gift, I just knew I’d find the perfect use for it!
Today’s challenge on Splitcoaststampers is an Inspiration Challenge IC339 ~ bibelot. The inspiration site is pretty cool, Bibelot Shops. I chose this pretty Gratitude Journal for my inspiration piece. When I saw it, I immediately thought of the Chloe Die by Memory Box. I used the negative of the die, cut from Stampin’ Up! Peach Parfait and mounted it on a Stampin’ Up! Ivory Naturals card base. The sentiment is from the Stampin’ Up! Mini Note Kit Best of the Bunch, stamped in Whisper White and clear embossed. You can just barely see it in the photo, but the sentiment was punched with the Stampin’ Up! Large Oval Punch. My first try at the sentiment was directly on the Peach Parfait, but I smeared the Craft ink. Rather than ditch it, I restamped the sentiment, punched it out and covered my boo-boo!
