This is a little Sneaky Peek of some fabulous new images to be released on tomorrow morning’s ODBD Release! I made this for the Splitcoast Featured Stamper this week (FS282), Loll Thompson! Congrats to Loll! What a fab gallery! I chose her Sail the Ocean Blue card to case. I kept the ship at sea theme, the general layout and red, white & blue theme, but I had to change the card format to fit my image and added a couple more layers. I used different images, papers and made a band w/ punched out stars in place of the twine.
After stamping the ship image, I sponged on some different blue inks and added just a touch of red to a few areas. The compass rose was stamped on the navy background w/ indigo ink and on the little side pieces of the sentiment w/ fired brick ink. The horizontal band was assembled with leftover strips and I punched the white band w/ a small star punch. The finished card is 5.50 x 4.25.
I hope you’ll stop back by to view all the fabulous art the team has put together with the gorgeous new sets and you’ll also be eligible to win some fantastic prizes.
See you tomorrow!

Fun technique today on Splitcoast (TLC383)! I really wanted to try it with this bicycle image, but it was a little tedious w/ all the fussy cutting but it came ok, I think. Next time, though, I think I’ll try a simpler image.
Following the instructions, I stamped the bicycle (images are from Our Daily Bread designs) on the back side of the dp and cut it out. The basket part made it look like a motorcycle, so I stamped it right side up and attached it on top.
I added a couple of die cut layers and a pennant banner I strung on baker’s twine. The brown and white layer is actually parts I had left over. Neither was big enough by themselves, so I put the white top on top of the brown bottom. The little brown pennants are a Quickutz die and I just happened to have a triangle shaped punch that fit on top just perfectly. I added some little white dots that were left over from punching a border on another project. The sentiment was die cut w/ a little banner die.
Thanks so much for stopping by!

For my card, I showing off two brand new images, Lemonade and Citrus Border. Aren’t they terrific! So perfect for summer. The sentiment is actually part of a much longer, Cool Summertime Greeting. The Lemonade Pitcher was stamped, colored and cut out. I added a little stickles to the ice cubes for some sparkle. The Citrus Border was stamped with a rainbow pad in citrusy colors. The background was embossed with a folder and I flipped it over and used the backside, or debossed side, masked the edges w/ painter’s tape and brayered over it with the same ink pad.
I used a scallop edge die on the bottom of the Citrus Border and the cut off piece looked pretty cool, so I brayered over it, turned it upside down and attached it at the bottom of the scallop edge. The finished card is 5.50 x 4.25.
Now, I’ll send you on to your next stop, Chris’ Blog! Have fun and good luck to you!
