Aloha Surfboards cu 06972 It’s day 2 of Dare to Get Dirty on Splitcoast and this is for MY (justwritedesigns) Challenge! The details are HERE, but you’ll need to be a Fan Club member…it’s easy, just click to find out how. 

Aloha Surfboards 06971 I had a lot of fun making this card. It’s just my, enough detail to keep me interested, a little coloring, a little fussy cutting & colorful! I started with the background. After masking off the water area, I sponged in the very orange sky using a cloud stencil I made w/ scallop scissors on a piece of acetate. The little seagulls were stamped & I used a white gel pen on the big one. The mask was reversed to cover the sky then I sponged in the water & added the highlights. I added just a touch of sand color at the very bottom. (The palm tree was also stamped on the background as well as the frame.)

Then I stamped, colored & fussy cut the surfboards. The top palm tree is actually part of the white frame. A little technique I call “into the window” and here’s a short tutorial showing how I did it. After stamping the palm tree where I wanted it & coloring it, I first die cut the large, outer frame, then determined the areas around the palm tree I would have to cut in order to slip the corner of the die under it. It turned out to be almost all of it, lol. There are actually only 2 places where the tree is still attached to the frame. (Click any pic to make it larger.)

Please pay no attention to my blue tipped fingernails, lol. That always happens when I sponge images. The inside frame die is in place & with the corner under the tree, I ran it thru the Big Shot.

And here’s a look at the inside. More sponging & I left off a greeting for now. Have to decide who it’s going to!

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,  and my Wed. post as a Guest Designer for DRS, this has been one busy week!

kobayashi 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.
SC250 DDIC14 Fall Sketch 3704a1


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.  On the large tan panel, I stamped the row of dots (The Stamps of Life)  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!

17 What a yummy inspiration picture for this week’s Divine Diva Inspiration Challenge! Doesn’t it make your mouth water? Lori found this picture from Let Them Eat Cake. I wonder how many calories there are in “just looking” at these amazing cakes?

The colors and pattern really appealed to me in this fabulous design. So for my calorie free version, I used cool caribbean and chocolate chip.

Across the bottom of a choc chip panel, I used a Martha Stewart punch three times. This particular punch doesn’t completely separate from the panel so I thought it might look interesting to put a strip of the cool carib thru/behind the punched shapes. I attached a couple of punched flowers (Punch Bunch) on top. The punched border is another MS punch. This is attached underneath the choc chip layer and a narrow strip of choc chip was attached under the punched border.

The butterfly flourish was stamped w/ dark brown chalk ink onto a separate panel of the cool carib and cut w/ a large Spellbinders rectangle. I stamped the butterfly again on a scrap, cut it out and attached it w/ foam tape to the original. The sentiment was cut w/ a Quickutz oval die. I punched two choc chip and one cool carib flowers and attached them in the upper right corner. A red glaze pen was used to add red centers to the flowers.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
