Wonderful challenge for the Ways to Use It on Splitcoast (WT465)! The challenge is to Color Something. It just so happens I LOVE to color! So I colored these cute little kids and I also sponged, masked, stenciled, stamped and colored the background and added color to the greeting strip.

For the background, I started with white card stock and sponged on some light purple and light blue inks. I used a sequin waste strip as a stencil and sponged on some darker blue & purple inks in areas. Then I stamped a splatter image here and there with dk blue & also white pigment ink. I did the same with a polka dot image. After stamping the greeting on a trimmed off piece of white, I sponged on some of the same inks diagonally. I turned down one corner of the image, added a button and called my 4.25 x 5.50 card finished. These are the Copics I used for the image.

For today’s Technique Challenge on Splitcoast (TLC450), we are to use punches to make our own stencils. So I used several different snowflake punches and a snowflake border punch to make my “stencil”. Rather than doing strips and taping them together (because the punch can only reach so far into the paper), I elected to use copy paper and fold mine in order to punch all over. The border punch was used just along the lower edge. After punching, I unfolded it then sponged white ink thru it onto the red background. I had these left over rectangle, circle and deckled frame so I used them. Turns out the narrow little frame was just what I needed to finish it. I also used one snowflake stencil to add a few red snowflakes to the greeting circle. Santa was colored with Copics and fussy cut. The finished card is 4.25 x 5.50.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

It’s Dare to Get Dirty week on Splitcoast and I made this for Cindy’s (DTGD13onehappystamper) fabulous challenge! You’ll need to be a Fan Club member to view the challenge, so check it out! Since I took my Copic certification classes from Cindy, I thought I’d better use them for her challenge! For my card, stamped the large sunflowers, colored them w/ Copics and fussy cut them. I added just a hint of sparkle in the flower centers w/ a Spica pen. They’re attached to white die cut layer.

I have 2 tutorials for doing this Monoprint Background…the first was for the Splitcoast Fan Club back in 2099 when I was on the Dirty Dozen team. If you’re aFan Club member, you can view it HERE. The second, is an updated tutorial from June 2013 with a few fun additions and you can view it HERE. This background is part of some I made using a chevron stencil and pigment ink. When I finished one background, I put the stencil (with all the ink still on it), ink side down on another sheet and brayered over it and this is what I got. It’s attached to a chevron embossed white background. The greeting was stamped on a die cut circle and attached to a stacked die cut pennant flag. The finished card is 5.50 x 4.25 and these are the Copics I used:

Happy Thursday!
Here’s another Christmas card and this one is for 2 challenges: the Ways to Use It (WT352) (stencils) and the DRS Thursday Challenge (to use dots).  There are some fabulous prizes and while we’d love to see your DRS images, it’s totally not necessary. Use whatever dots you have…a stencil, a stamps or even an embossing folder. Just link us up on the DRS Blog and you’ll be entered to win!

While I tend to forget about them, I do love stencils. Only wish I’d taken the easy route and just pulled one out instead of making my own, lol. But I wanted a big empty ornament I could put snowflakes in so I used the Nativity ornament and made a sort of stencil and mask so I could use the frame only. I also used two sizes of Spellbinders squares as a stencil to draw the frame around the ornament.

All images are DRS Designs. After making the ornament stencil and mask, I stamped the snowflakes inside w/ the 3 colors of Distress inks then used my “stencil” again to lightly sponge around the inside edge of the ornament. Then did the frame around it using the square dies as stencils. It’s attached to a red postage stamp square.

The two banners were sponged w/ the blue & green inks, then stamped w/ the snowflakes in white and white embossed. I die cut them w/ the banner dies and resized them to make them longer.

The sentiment was cut w/ the smallest mega oval and the white embossed frame was cut w/ a ribbon tag. I didn’t want to use a ribbon so I put the little punch out parts back in. The white bg was white embossed using the polka dot bg. The finished card is 4.25 x 5.50.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Stamps: DRS Designs – Nativity ornament, Interlocking Snowflakes, Polka Dot bg, Sm Merry Christmas, Design Tag

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas! On my card, anyway. I made this for today’s Ways to Use It challenge (WT348). to add something to the space around your image. Love adding elements to my cards; especially die cut items outside a window like I did here.

All images are DRS Designs. A little while back, I came across THIS little Christmas card and just loved the little scene, so this is also a CASE of that card. For my version, I made a reverse circle mask to stamp my scene into then traced around the circle. The scene was inked w/ markers before stamping so I could get the colors I wanted. I cut the window in the red layer the next size up then embossed the dots on it.

I die cut the trees (the taller one is Sizzix, the other w/ snow is Quickutz) and attached them. The sentiment has a little white gel pen on top of the letters. I added some stickles on the snow and attached it to a 4.25 x 5.50 white card.

Thanks so much for stopping by!


Supplies:

Stamps: DRS Designs – Triple Tree w/ Snow, Bootprints in the Snow, Small Merry Christmas Greeting
Paper: Neenah white, real red, pine green
Ink: Ancient Page coal
Accessories: Tombow markers, cloud stencil, Sizzix tree die, Quickutz tree w/ snow die, Spellbinders petite oval & circle dies, Cuttlebug Swiss dots ef, stickles, white gel pen
