A big CONGRATS to Sue, the Featured Stamper (FS317) on Splitcoast! Can you believe how big and beautiful her gallery is? There are a lot of cards I picked to CASE but I kept coming back to this Snowflakes of Peace card. I didn’t even realize it was a CASE of a CASE until after I finished. But in any case, I think my CASE resembles Sue’s CASE much more closely. I loved it so much, I didn’t want to change anything so I kept the layout and similar colors, but I don’t have the images she used so I changed images, added a layer or two, a butterfly and made mine a birthday card.

The card is pretty Clean & Simple (CAS)…I stamped the medallion several times in the red, aqua and pear tart colors, then used different size circle dies to cut them out and mix match a couple of the centers. The big flourish was stamped on the layer underneath using the neptune ink and the two part sentiment was stamped in red. I added the sky blue layer and onto my 4.25 x 5.50 card. A few gems and a cut out butterfly finished it.

Congrats again, Sue! Enjoy your week! Thanks so much for stopping by!

This is for several challenges on Splitcoast. First the Inspiration Challenge (IC377), and I was inspired by this Fish Pin. For the Mixability Challenge (MIX4), we are to use water based mediums and I used water based reinkers and shaving cream on top of water to create my background. And last but not least, the LOVEFEST2013H challenge by Unity, colors and a picture. I used the colors as my starting point.

For my card, I used a shaving cream background, stamped the image on top. This technique has been around a while and here’s a link if you’d like the directions: Shaving Cream Technique. To make sure the image was dark enough, I also used black embossing powder and heat embossed it.

I left a narrow border around the image when I trimmed it and then attached it to  dk green layer w/ a punched side and then a gold textured layer. A little sponging was added to the gold layer, the large lt green textured layer and also the 5.5 x 4.25 ivory card. The sentiment was stamped in two directions on the lt green layer and I sponged over the top of some added embossing on the left side.

Today we are to use blues & browns for the Free For All Challenge(F4A155) on Splitcoast! This is one of those cards I had sitting on my desktop and didn’t upload to SCS for some unknown reason. Since the colors fit, I figured better late than never!

For my Autumn Lake View card,  I started by stamping the image onto watercolor paper. I used a combination of markers and reinkers to color it. With a paintbrush, I filled in a lake area and some ground around the tree. I stamped a few grassy elements along the ground and used the Micron pen to sketch out the ground, water edge and hill areas. Markers were used to add some fall foliage on the far side of the lake and little blue was added to the sky. I used a lg square Spellbinders die and resized it to cut out the white frame.  A very thin black mat was added behind the frame before attaching to my scene. Finished card measures 5.5 x 4.25.

 Thanks so much for stopping by!
