Archive for the ‘Cuttlebug/Quickutz/Sizzix’ Category


I combined 2 Splitcoast Challenges, the Clean & Simple (CAS486) & Technique Challenge (TLC695). The TLC was to cover card stock w/ washi tape, then emboss it. The CAS was to make a celebration card.

It may not look like a celebration card, but it is…while I was making this, my aunt called to tell me my uncle had passed away. My aunt & uncle are twins so I’m sending this to her. So I guess my card is more a celebration of his life than a sympathy card. He hadn’t been sick, in fact he played a LOT of golf & did a LOT of bowling, but life is like that, I guess.

Anyway, I didn’t have as much washi tape as I thought but I found a couple w/ black patterns, some pink & pale green & some black glitter so that’s what I used. It was embossed w/ Swiss dots then framed w/ a pale mint green & the greeting added.

Here’s the inside. My aunt will get the quote…we can cry that he’s gone or rejoice that he lived.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

SW Birthday by Julie Warner http://thewritestuff.justwritedesigns.com/?p=28123

This is for the Splitcoast Inspiration Challenge (IC654) & Stacy chose the Vera Bradley site. Lovely colors & patterns there! I was inspired by THIS tote. I just love the colors & Southwest pattern.

To make my SW background, I applied Distress oxide inks to the inside of the embossing folder (Embossing Folder Stamping) then placed my die cut piece of white card stock inside. I actually used what would normally be the back side because I wanted just the lines & not the inside of the pattern. Leaving the c/s just where it was, I added a little more ink here & there where needed. When satisfied, I went ahead & ran it thru the Big Shot to emboss it because I also wanted the texture. The big Happy was die cut then stamped & double stacked on another white piece to give it some depth. The coral pieces were leftovers that seemed to fit in.

Here’s a look at the inside.

It’s my turn to host the Splitcoast Inspiration Challenge & I chose Caron’s Beach House as the site. It has sooo many wonderful beach decor items! And since it’s pretty close to summer, I thought it would be perfect. THIS was the item that inspired my card.
To make my beach clock, I die cut the circles & on the smaller one, stamped & colored the chair & umbrella. The sandals, seagull & sailboat were drawn in w/ a multiliner pen & the bg was colored in. I inked the woodgrain bg w/ London fog & stamped off once before stamping across the scene, then I used a gray Copic to accentuate the board lines. The die cut numbers & clock hands were added on top. For the greeting, I stamped part of it & die cut the beach part. I had to die cut a few different words from the set then cut & paste them together. 

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