Well, December marks my last Dirty Dozen gallery. I can’t believe it’s been 6 months already, but it has. It’s been a wild and totally fun ride and I’ve loved every minute. Even all the blood, sweat and tears! It’s all good!
So I hope you’ll be sure to pop in and visit because I guarantee it’s one Fantastic gallery! We even have calendar pages to get you ready for 2010. But you have to be a Fan Club Member to walk in our Holiday gallery. If you haven’t joined yet, come on by. It’s fast, easy, low cost, high value. And you’ll get lots of exclusive tutorials, techniques and galleries full of show stopping gorgeousness.
And thank you to all of you who came and visited me during my six months in the SCS Dirty Dozen. I so appreaciate each and every one of you!
Big day today! It’s the third Thursday so it’s time for another Divine Divas Inspiration Challenge. And it’s also the 15th, so it’s a new Dirty Dozen Gallery at Splitcoast. And with the 3 day, Mon-Wed ISC Blog Hop,Â and my Wed. post as a Guest Designer for DRS, this has been one busy week!
This week, Lori chose this fabric swatch for our inspiration. At first this was a little hard for me to get a handle on since it’s an all over pattern with no real focal point. So I finally decided to start w/ the very fall like colors. And I wanted to try and incorporate the Wed. SCS Sketch Challenge.
For my Fall Sketch card, I stamped the bg (you can barely see it since I covered most of it up, lol), w/ a leaf spray image (Inkadinkado) and the Kpad on tan c/s. The narrow panels and greeting panel (both SG) were stamped on separate tan c/s and edged w/ a maker.Â On the large tan panel, I stamped the row of dots (The Stamps of Life)Â across the top and used a leaf border punch across the bottom. I also used a small dots image (RST) and soft sand ink across the entire panel. I repeated the punch on the leaf panel underneath it.
A very narrow rust strip was added behind my three narrow panels and a small piece of punched olive c/s was added to the bottom of the greeting panel.
Thanks so much for stopping by! Please visit the rest of the team. I know they’ll have some wonderful eye candy for you!

It’s the first Thursday of the month, so it’s time for another Divine Divas Inspiration Challenge! This week, Lori chose this wonderful inspiration picture from Greenergrassdesign.
I love the birds and the ginkgo leaves, so I combined the two images.
I’m also combining this w/ the Monday Technique Lover’s Challenge at SCS, to do a masked frame. The heron (SZ) circle was stamped on white c/s and cut w/ a Spellbinders Nestie circle, using the Out of the Box Nestie Tech. I used markers to add just a touch of color. The larger outer circle was also cut w/ a Nestie circle and I used a smaller one to mask the center and stamp the images (RST) for a circle frame.
The sentiment (IS) was done the same way and another frame created around it.
On the chocolate layer, I stamped 3 different gingko images (SZ, Inkadinkado, RST) using the seaglass & frost white pigment inks. I cut around the top and inserted the clay colored textured c/s (The End Cut- the color is very close to Mellow Moss). A soft sky layer, another clay layer, then the white card follow. Two different size hole punches were used to make the faux brads.
