Cityscape Birthday 09654
This was made for Lydia’s Dare To Get Dirty challenge on Splitcoast & we’d love for you to join in so for all the details go to the Dare to Get Dirty Forum ..but you’ll need to be a Fan Club member. It’s sooooo easy! You still have a little time to enter the challenges, but this is last challenge on the last day of DTGD16.

This card looks simple, but it was off the charts aggravating! I was having one of THOSE days. I dropped or lost most everything I touched. And for the life of me, I can’t figure out why my supplies want to hide. When I drop them in the middle of the floor, they will scoot or shoot half way across a room to get under a piece of furniture like they’re sliding into home! And this requires getting down on my knees w/ a flashlight & long stick (yes I have one just for this purpose) to retrieve them. Dies are the worst..they are the same color as the hardwood floor..& they require the magnet extension on my screwdriver. I had to carry around so many retrieval tools, I felt like a vacuum cleaner w/ full attachments.

Anyway, the scene was stamped across the blank spot in an Embossing Folder Stamped piece. I didn’t like the way the stamped embossing folder piece turned out so the white topper covered it all up, lol. I also stamped the scene on the white then added a little mitre cornered frame around it. The black zigzag was die cut, the greeting & sequins added.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

I’m combining 3 Splitcoast challenges for this card…Color (CC589), Sketch (SC599), & Inspiration (IC552). For the IC, I was inspired by THIS lovely picture.

For my image, I started w/ a small rectangle of linen c/s, sponged the blue inks from the bottom up, added a mask for the horizon & sponged the purple inks from there down. After removing the mask, I sponged the pink inks from the top down until they almost met in the center. I had a little trouble getting the pink inks to go w/ the textured rose c/s I was using for the larger layer, so went over this area w/ some Prismacolor pencils to alter the color a bit. Then I placed this panel into my Misti & stamped the image w/ Versafine, added a little white in areas w/ a gel pen, then stamped it over it again. Then it was just die cutting the other layers & putting it all together.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

A big congrats to Cathy, the newest Featured Stamper on Splitcoast (FS419)! She has such a wonderful gallery and it was hard to chose just one. I finally went with THIS card to case. I kept the layout but flipped sides with the embellishment additions, used different images and made mine a birthday card instead of Christmas.

A while back, I used another Deep Red Stamps image ( a beautiful Chevelle) which I think they must have liked because they were kind enough to send me another image. Being a native Texan, this funny little cowboy really appealed to my sense of humor and I know he will be terrific for cards going to my family still in Texas. So I colored him, die cut using a little out of the box technique with a stitched rectangle, added a greeting and some more layers. I die cut the hat and made a lasso out of twine. I tell you, this ol’ cowpoke and the expression on the “fake” horse’s face just crack me up.

Here’s a peek at the inside and also the colors of Copics I used.
