Isn’t this Kites Reverse die wonderful? I love that it’s all one piece & does the partial swirls as well. I die cut it into the Recollections heavy wt c/s…although it says it’s 110# it’s way heavier than the other 110# c/s. I wanted to be able to pull up the swirls slightly w/o worrying about it bending or tearing. I had a watercolor bg I made ages ago w/ blues & greens & a little iridescent medium (very sparkly IRL) & I loved the colors but wasn’t crazy about the overall look of it. So just using bits & pieces behind the kites was the perfect solution. I backed it w/ a very fine, smooth glitter c/s & let it show thru around the edges & under the kite tails. All that was left was to stamp the greeting & add a few sequins. 

Here’s a look at the inside using a few leftover glitter kite parts. 

Next stop is Vickie‘s Blog!  Please be sure to comment on all the DT Blogs..it will be so appreciated & also increase your chances of winning!

To make my fall card, I put a piece of ivory card stock into my Misti & stamped the Tree Frame w/ the Kaleidacolor rainbow ink pad a couple of times. I used a water brush to drag the colors into the image then stamped over it w/ the vintage photo oxide ink.  I ended up fussy cutting the trees & attaching them to die cut piece of ivory where I stamped the tree frame again a couple of times w/ the Kpad (to add a colored outline). The greeting was stamped w/ the Versafine ink & a couple of leaves from the Remember To set were fussy cut & added. On the bg rectangles, I stamped the Wood Grain Bg onto ivory using the oxide ink then sponged some of the antique linen & vintage photo Distress inks onto it.

Here’s a look at the inside.

It’s my turn to host the Featured Stamper Challenge (FS529) on Splitcoast so a big congrats to Hideko Lagan, aka PapercraftBoutique! She has a really sweet gallery & I chose THIS to case. I liked the colors & the pieced strip bg so I kept that but I used different images, different dies & turned my horizontal. Hideko was brought to my attention by the very sweet Kia…thanks, Kia! 

To make my roller coaster card, after stamping & coloring the image, I used a double stitched die and my into the window technique. All of the strips in the background were die cut w/ one of the smaller sizes of the stitched long & skinny mats, then I arranged them & used scotch tape on the back to hold them together. I used a curved stitched die that closely followed the greeting curve, to cut the bottom of the strips then I attached them to the card front.  I attached a bunch of leftover pieces & strips to the back side of the framed image to give it a little lift. Some sequins were added for a little sparkle.

Here’s a look at the inside, using more strips & below it are the Copics I used to color the image.
