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.

It’s my turn to host the Splitcoast Inspiration Challenge & I chose Caron’s Beach House as the site. It has sooo many wonderful beach decor items! And since it’s pretty close to summer, I thought it would be perfect. THIS was the item that inspired my card.
To make my beach clock, I die cut the circles & on the smaller one, stamped & colored the chair & umbrella. The sandals, seagull & sailboat were drawn in w/ a multiliner pen & the bg was colored in. I inked the woodgrain bg w/ London fog & stamped off once before stamping across the scene, then I used a gray Copic to accentuate the board lines. The die cut numbers & clock hands were added on top. For the greeting, I stamped part of it & die cut the beach part. I had to die cut a few different words from the set then cut & paste them together. 

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

I made these for the Splitcoaststampers Fan Club June 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.
This was a lot of fun to make. It took a little engineering w/ the light string image but I think it accurately represents what has surely happened to us all at one time or another. And if I could have gotten away w/ it, I would have totally left them like this & called it a day. This tangled mess of lights is one reason my tree is now one of those that comes w/ lights already on it, lol. I used a stamp a ma jig to position the light string into the chaotic mess it is then colored it & added the plug on the side. I stamped just a few pine branches & 1 ornament to give the impression of the unlit tree off to the side. The greeting was made up of little die cut letters. A while back, I saw one of those hand drawn joke cards w/ this idea & thought I could create something similar. 

Here are the Copics I used.

Supplies:

Stamps: DRS DesignsChristmas Light String, Pine Bough, Ornaments Galore
Paper: Staples 110# white, pine green
Ink: Memento tuxedo black
Accessories: Copic markers, Lil’ Inker Stitched Rectangles dies, Sizzix celebration words dies, Copic mulitliner pen


And just because I bought this set on clearance over a year ago & have never used it…I made a second card. Very easy since the stamps & matching dies pretty much do all the work. Stamped the whole image on the sand card stock, then again several more times on white, colored them, die cut them & popped the layers up on the original. 

Supplies:

Stamps: Sizzix Tree Blueprint (stamp/die combo)
Paper: Staples 110# white, sand
Ink: Memento tuxedo black
Accessories: Copic markers, MFT diagonal stitched rectangle dies

Thanks so much for stopping by!
