I combined 2 Splitcoast Challenges, the Clean & Simple (CAS486) & Technique Challenge (TLC695). The TLC was to cover card stock w/ washi tape, then emboss it. The CAS was to make a celebration card.

It may not look like a celebration card, but it is…while I was making this, my aunt called to tell me my uncle had passed away. My aunt & uncle are twins so I’m sending this to her. So I guess my card is more a celebration of his life than a sympathy card. He hadn’t been sick, in fact he played a LOT of golf & did a LOT of bowling, but life is like that, I guess.

Anyway, I didn’t have as much washi tape as I thought but I found a couple w/ black patterns, some pink & pale green & some black glitter so that’s what I used. It was embossed w/ Swiss dots then framed w/ a pale mint green & the greeting added.

Here’s the inside. My aunt will get the quote…we can cry that he’s gone or rejoice that he lived.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

It’s my turn to host the Splitcoast Featured Stamper Challenge (FS593) so a big Congrats to Jeri, the new Featured Stamper! She has such a cute, colorful gallery & after much browsing, I chose THIS to case. I kept the layout & cars w/ arrows, but I used different images, made my car out of die cuts & used fewer layers.

I really liked Jeri’s card w/ all the arrows & cute little cars. I had an arrow bg image but no cute little cars (must remedy that!). So I made my little red bug out of circle die cuts. After playing around w/ sizes & arrangements of the circles, I finally came to this & cut out the window part to add the blue behind it. More circles for the wheels. All the arrows were colored in for the bg then the greeting added and little puffs of smoke were drawn to finish it.

Here’s a look at the inside & below it are the Copics I used.

SW Birthday by Julie Warner http://thewritestuff.justwritedesigns.com/?p=28123

This is for the Splitcoast Inspiration Challenge (IC654) & Stacy chose the Vera Bradley site. Lovely colors & patterns there! I was inspired by THIS tote. I just love the colors & Southwest pattern.
  SW Birthday by Julie Warner http://thewritestuff.justwritedesigns.com/?p=28123
To make my SW background, I applied Distress oxide inks to the inside of the embossing folder (Embossing Folder Stamping) then placed my die cut piece of white card stock inside. I actually used what would normally be the back side because I wanted just the lines & not the inside of the pattern. Leaving the c/s just where it was, I added a little more ink here & there where needed. When satisfied, I went ahead & ran it thru the Big Shot to emboss it because I also wanted the texture. The big Happy was die cut then stamped & double stacked on another white piece to give it some depth. The coral pieces were leftovers that seemed to fit in.

Here’s a look at the inside.
