Today is Day 1 of Splitcoaststampers Dare to Get Dirty Challenges! And I made this for my challenge & for all the details of the challenge, go HERE…but you’ll need to be a Fan Club member. That’s easy! 

For my card, I put the cute birds into my Misti, stamped & colored them, then over stamped them to sharpen the lines. The little birds were die cut w/ the matching die & the large bird was fussy cut (rumor has it there’s a die to come!). The background is a hodgepodge of sponging, spraying & watercolor. I die cut the white layer, stamped the greeting, then added the birds. 

Here are the Copics I used.

Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope you’ll drop in & join us for Dare to Get Dirty week!

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.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

I have this card for the Splitcoast Color Challenge (CC694)using Red, White & Blue in honor of Independence Day! I think my patriotic colored RV is also a great representation of a favorite summertime activity…camping. I’ll tell you though..this RV is waaayyy more comfy & stylish than any camping I’ve ever done.

To make my RV, I put the image into my Misti, stamped, colored, over stamped then fussy cut it. I wanted to give the impression of a big sun behind it & hills for it to drive over.  The blue edged hills were hand cut & sponged along the top edges. The greeting was added to the top portion of the Surprise Box insert die. 

Below is the inside & next to it are the Copics I used.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Happy 4th of July!
