FS139 Bday Train 3481a1

Congrats to Lois (clownmom), the Featured Stamper today at SCS! Wow, does she ever have a big, beautiful gallery! I chose her Triple Cupcake Birthday to case. I changed the images, the colors and added a sentiment circle instead of stamping on the front. I kept most of the layout and the fun birthday theme for a child.

I stamped the cloud bg (Sonlight) onto white c/s w/ cobalt ink & did a once off first to make it a little lighter. Added the train track then attached it to a red layer, then a blue layer and onto the white 6.5 x 5 (A7) card.

The train sections & train station (no name, bought at Big Lots a long time ago) were stamped onto white, painted w/ a water brush and Peerless water colors. I used a square Spellbinders nestie set to cut them and their layers.

The sentiment circle (JR) was stamped w/ the cobalt ink and the dots painted w/ the water colors. I used a circle nestie and a Quickutz scallop circle for the red layer. After the pieces were attached, I added the puffs of steam.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Great Technique Lover’s Challenge today at SCS! I love the bandana technique and it’s been a while since I’ve done it. Bandanas usually make me think of cowboys so I went w/ the traditional red.

On white c/s, I masked off the areas around where my cowboy silhouette stamp (Magenta) would be and sponged on the colors, starting w/ the lightest first. Then I used the stamp-a-ma-jig to position my silhouette and stamped it w/ black ink. It’s attached to a white piece w/ the lower border punched.

The greeting (Art Impressions), Rep. of TX circle (Deadbeat Deisgns) and cowboy post (Inkadinkado) were stamped on white and color sponged on. The two were cut out w/ the postage scissors.

My bandana bg was first stamped w/ a paisley square (Stampendous) and the cardinal ink. Then the paisley border and little flowers (Fiskar’s) and the small paisley (SU) were stamped w/ black ink. Dots were added w/ a white gel pen.

Congrats, Liz on being today’s Featured Stamper at SCS. I’ve been a fan of Liz’ for a while. It was hard to pick just one, but I finally decided on Cup of Friendship to case. I changed the colors and images, left off the sentiment (until I decide which one I want) and added another punched border and aa few strips of color. I kept the layout and wonderful side punched strips.

My SW pot (Stamps on Fire)was stamped a couple of times onto vanilla and the band part was stamped once onto some bg I had left over from yesterday’s challenge. I used markers to color the pot of one and the chili peppers on the other. I cut the pepper part out and layered onto the pot. I paper pieced some of the band onto the lower part of the pot. Then I cut the whole thing out. A slit was cut around the lip of the pot and I inserted these slivers of c/s I cut. I attached it to a bg I stamped a lg burlap bg (Stamp Camp) that I inked w/ the DI ant. linen and just hit it here and there w/ DI tea dye and sponged the edges w/ the tea dye.

I used this same burlap on the wine card front using the redwood ink. I punched the edges of the leftover bg (using the SU images) and a green strip. I used the smaller McGill punch on a strip of the bg. I attached the MS border punched strips on the left side and the other on the right. What may look like more red & green layers is actually just strips I attached. I added a few small punched daisies on the left green strip.
