A big congrats to Vicki, the newest Featured Stamper! She has such a fab gallery & always leaves the sweetest comments. After much browsing, I chose THIS to case. I kept the gold embossed tree & Christmas theme but used different images & different dies. Also as a nod to her living in Hawaii, I used a beach shells tropical themed tree.

I gold embossed the image on some confetti sand card stock then I added just a touch of color w/ some Prismacolor pencils. On the darker sand c/s, I gold embossed the Splatter Bg on the lower section then used a curved die to cut the lower part of the tree layer. The new greeting was also gold embossed & die cut w/ a circle die. I added some gold thread tied in a bow just under the top of it.

Here’s a look at the inside.

I’ve fallen a little behind on my posting & here are 2 cards I made for Dare to Get Dirty Challenges & also the Inspiration & Featured Stamper Challenges. For all the details of the DTGD challenges, go HERE…but you’ll need to be a Fan Club member.  

This first one was for the Inspiration Challenge (IC662) &.THIS & THIS were my inspirations. I loved the palm trees in the first, and the colors in the second. And, I used a technique from TLC698, gel plate impressionism. Basically, you put a gel plate into your Misti, ink it up w/ Distress oxide inks, mist w/ alcohol (the rubbing kind, lol), stamp your image on top w/ dye ink, then place your card stock on top of the gel plate. So that’s what I did. The colors move around & mix a bit & the silhouette isn’t quite as sharp as it would be, but the overall look is pretty nice. After it dried, I added the seagulls & a little white highlighting on the palms. Here’s the inside.

Supplies:

Stamps: DRS Designs –  Palm Tree Line Seaside Dock Sending Sunshine (inside: Sun Shine On You )
Paper: Staples 110# white 
Ink: Distress oxide inks  peacock feathers, squeezed lemonade, worn lipstick, cracked pistachio, Memento tuxedo black 
Accessories:  Misti, Lil’ Inker stitched rectangle dies, Gelli plate, white gel pen


This card was for the Featured Stamper Challenge (FS601). I chose THIS to case. I kept the cactus in the desert theme, but I used different images, different colors & added a greeting. I also got a kick out of Beth’s description of her card.

To make my desert scene, I stamped the Cowboy Cactus, masked it, then stamped the Broken Flower Fence around it. Makes it kind of look like the cowboys are out fixing the fence & left a hat & rope on the cactus. After coloring everything, I die cut it w/ a wonky stitched rectangle then added some clouds & a sunflower for the sun rays. The greeting is part of the Western Word Square & I used a wonky circle die to cut it. Here’s the inside & next to it are the Copics I used.

Congrats to Jenny, the newest Featured Stamper (FS599) on Splitcoast! She has such a wonderful gallery & I chose THIS to case. I kept the sunset bg w/ a silhouette image but I used different images, a corvette instead of a crane in the foreground & changed it from vertical to horizontal.

To make my Ocean Drive card, I painted watercolors onto the solid background image & stamped it onto white card stock. After I dried it, I placed it in my Misti & stamped the silhouette palms (several times) using VersaClair ink then added white highlights w/ a gel pen. I drew a few seagulls w/ a Copic multiliner pen.The white frame was  die cut & stamped with the Happy Birthday squiggle frame. The corvette was stamped, colored & die cut w/ the matching die. I made the corvette yellow because my dad used to have a yellow corvette & he loved it! Personally, I preferred the Mustang convertible he had before that, lol. 

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