I’ve fallen a little behind on my posting & here are 2 cards I made for Dare to Get Dirty Challenges & also the Inspiration & Featured Stamper Challenges. For all the details of the DTGD challenges, go HERE…but you’ll need to be a Fan Club member.  

This first one was for the Inspiration Challenge (IC662) &.THIS & THIS were my inspirations. I loved the palm trees in the first, and the colors in the second. And, I used a technique from TLC698, gel plate impressionism. Basically, you put a gel plate into your Misti, ink it up w/ Distress oxide inks, mist w/ alcohol (the rubbing kind, lol), stamp your image on top w/ dye ink, then place your card stock on top of the gel plate. So that’s what I did. The colors move around & mix a bit & the silhouette isn’t quite as sharp as it would be, but the overall look is pretty nice. After it dried, I added the seagulls & a little white highlighting on the palms. Here’s the inside.

Supplies:

Stamps: DRS Designs –  Palm Tree Line Seaside Dock Sending Sunshine (inside: Sun Shine On You )
Paper: Staples 110# white 
Ink: Distress oxide inks  peacock feathers, squeezed lemonade, worn lipstick, cracked pistachio, Memento tuxedo black 
Accessories:  Misti, Lil’ Inker stitched rectangle dies, Gelli plate, white gel pen


This card was for the Featured Stamper Challenge (FS601). I chose THIS to case. I kept the cactus in the desert theme, but I used different images, different colors & added a greeting. I also got a kick out of Beth’s description of her card.

To make my desert scene, I stamped the Cowboy Cactus, masked it, then stamped the Broken Flower Fence around it. Makes it kind of look like the cowboys are out fixing the fence & left a hat & rope on the cactus. After coloring everything, I die cut it w/ a wonky stitched rectangle then added some clouds & a sunflower for the sun rays. The greeting is part of the Western Word Square & I used a wonky circle die to cut it. Here’s the inside & next to it are the Copics I used.

I made this for the Splitcoaststampers Fan Club August Christmas Challenge! I’ve been having so much fun being a part of the challenge this year & the bonus is I’ll have a bunch of Christmas cards finished in plenty of time for Christmas this year. You’ll need to be Fan Club member but that’s easy…just click the blue link to find out how.

To make my card, I put the X-Press It paper into my Misti, stamped the Polar Bears & colored them w/ Copics. I masked them, then stamped the 2 step Watercolor Forest w/ the Memento summer sky & bamboo leaves behind the bears. I used a torn piece of paper to lightly sponge in the snow using the Distress tumbled glass ink. To die cut the panel, I first used the largest of the stitched rectangles dies to cut the entire scene, then used a die 2 sizes smaller to cut the center. Both were attached to slightly larger layers of red glitter paper before attaching to the card. I also added a thin layer of fun foam behind the center panel to raise it up a tad. Stickles was added to the snow & trees. 

Here’s a look at the inside & below it are the Copics I used.

For the Inspiration Challenge, Stacy chose U.S. Mint Sheets. I’ve always had a thing for postage stamps & I have a good size collection of mostly used stamps. I just love the artwork on stamps! I chose a stamp that I actually have & I found it on the site, but since then, I guess they sold out & it doesn’t show up anymore but HERE it is.

My Tiffany lamp was gold embossed onto a polished stone bg I made using Copic refills, rubbing alcohol & a gold leaf marker. After embossing the lamp & the book, I fussy cut them & added them to a pine green layer w/ a long window cut out. I added a pale peach layer behind it & gold embossed the greeting. The little butterflies were punched out of some leftovers of the bg. Little strips of the green that I cut w/ postage stamp scissors were added around the green layer.

Here’s the inside:
