What a super color combo today on the Color Challenge (CC447) on Splitcoast! My card doesn’t really have a pool key, but one of the colors is Pool Party and there are some keys on it, so….

After stamping the frame and greeting, I added just a hint of color to simulate the Pool Party color then die cut. It’s attached to 2 more die cut layers. The black flourishy elements on top and bottom are leftovers from an Adorning Square die. The die cut keys (from the Angel Wing die set) were added on top of a leftover background I made a while back that had the stenciling (for the dessert option) and the right colors. The tutorial I did for this background HERE.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

What a super color combo for today’s Color Challenge (CC475) on Splitcoast! Love these bright, high contrast colors! The red & orange remind me of poppies, so that’s the direction I went. I spent most of my time fiddling with background…the rest was quick & easy.

On the background, I started by using a large water color brush and a couple of red & orange reinkers. I also splattered a bit using the brush. Then I took a couple of stencils and sponged on some real red thru the stencils. I die cut the poppies & the little squares out of this. The greeting was stamped in a combo of the two blue inks. I don’t have any little enamel dots, but I did find these sort of metallic ones. They weren’t quite blue enough, so I added a little more blue w/ a Copic marker.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

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:
