Seaside

For this week's Featured Stamper challenge at Splitcoaststampers, I chose this for my inspiration.


I love the Heartfelt Creations Under the Sea Collection and it worked perfectly for casing Linda's awesome card.  I heat embossed all of the images, except for the branches that were left over from another project.  The images were water colored with Stampin Up markers and the paper is from the Under the Sea paper collection, the sentiment from the new Monkeying Around collection.

Palm Tree Birthday

For the Splitcoaststampers Inspiration Challenge today, I chose this for my inspiration.


I've been waiting impatiently for my new Heartfelt Creations release to arrive, and immediately pulled it out and heat embossed all of the the images.  My husband's birthday is coming up and he is always dreaming of a trip to Hawaii, so I thought this would be perfect.  It's also a great opportunity to put flowers on a guy card.  For this card, I combined stamps and paper from the Monkeying Around Collection with the Hibiscus from the Under the Sea Collection.

Red Dogwood

The Splitcoaststamper Inspiration Challenge is a pinterest site called Moleskine, and you can find the inspiration art that I chose here.


My mother's 75th birthday is coming up and her favorite color is red, so I made my flowers darker than the art inspiration.  This is one of my all time favorite scriptures and I hope it really blesses my mom on her special day! 
I used the 3d Crystal lacquer the other day and really love how it creates an enamel look on the Ornate Border Die, so I added one on each side of the scripture verse.
