This is for the Splitcoast Inspiration Challenge (IC667) & Stacy chose a lovely Etsy shop. For my card, I was inspired by THIS picture. I love the dark bg w/ the pop of bright blue.

To make my card, I put the rather large Winking Birds image into my Misti, then used a really small ink pad to ink just the branch I wanted & stamped it onto black c/s.  I happen to still have a bunch of Tsukineko’s dauber duo ink sticks so that’s what I used. You could do the same w/ any small cube pigment pad or marker. Since it’s in the Misti, it can be stamped repeatedly to get it good & wet. After I stamped it, I used an embossing powder that I mixed to get the color I wanted. It’s a half & half of a blue pastel & a candy green. It turned out just the aqua color I was looking for.  The background aqua piece  was first die cut w/ a stitched rectangle then I used a narrow inset die on it. I had to cut it 3 times to span the width of the bg. First I cut both ends, then was happy to discover if I lined up a portion on the already cut area, it would cut the remaining center almost perfectly. It’s similar to my resizing tutorial,you just have to be a little more careful when lining up the die. I die cut some little birds out of the same aqua color & added them to the branches & on the greeting circle.

Here’s a look at the inside. I stamped the entire bg image on it w/ a lt teal shadow ink. Adds a little something but it’s still light enough to write on.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Today is Day 1 of Splitcoaststampers Dare to Get Dirty Challenges! And I made this for my challenge & for all the details of the challenge, go HERE…but you’ll need to be a Fan Club member. That’s easy! 

For my card, I put the cute birds into my Misti, stamped & colored them, then over stamped them to sharpen the lines. The little birds were die cut w/ the matching die & the large bird was fussy cut (rumor has it there’s a die to come!). The background is a hodgepodge of sponging, spraying & watercolor. I die cut the white layer, stamped the greeting, then added the birds. 

Here are the Copics I used.

I made this for the Splitcoaststampers Fan Club August Christmas Challenge! I’ve been having so much fun being a part of the challenge this year & the bonus is I’ll have a bunch of Christmas cards finished in plenty of time for Christmas this year. You’ll need to be Fan Club member but that’s easy…just click the blue link to find out how.

To make my card, I put the X-Press It paper into my Misti, stamped the Polar Bears & colored them w/ Copics. I masked them, then stamped the 2 step Watercolor Forest w/ the Memento summer sky & bamboo leaves behind the bears. I used a torn piece of paper to lightly sponge in the snow using the Distress tumbled glass ink. To die cut the panel, I first used the largest of the stitched rectangles dies to cut the entire scene, then used a die 2 sizes smaller to cut the center. Both were attached to slightly larger layers of red glitter paper before attaching to the card. I also added a thin layer of fun foam behind the center panel to raise it up a tad. Stickles was added to the snow & trees. 

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

Thanks so much for stopping by!
