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!
To make my celestial birthday card, I used water color paper to make a Wrinkle Free Distress background using Distress Oxide inks. When it dried, I used a couple of stencils & lightly sponged just a little pattern here & there. Then  I stamped just the border of the Rainbow Safari image around the edges then used a paintbrush and a little of oxide ink to paint half of the leaves. The Sister Sun image was stamped & colored w/ Copics. I used a circle die & did a little out of the box to keep the sun rays intact. The little greeting strip was added underneath the cut off section on the right.

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

Thanks so much for stopping by!

A big congrats to Mandi, the newest Featured Stamper (FS496) on Splitcoast! She has such a lovely gallery & I chose THIS to case. I kept the layout & color combo, but used different images, different dies & made mine a summer card instead of Christmas. This is also for Kathleen’s Dare to Get Dirty Challenge. We’d love for you to join in so for all the details go to the Dare to Get Dirty Forum ..but you’ll need to be a Fan Club member. It’s sooooo easy!

To make my popsicle card, I started w/ a piece of embossing folder stamped background & used part of it for my bottom section. Instead of inking the embossing folder, I sprayed it w/ several colors of shine sprays then closed the folder on a piece of white card stock. It wasn’t embossed, so it’s still flat. I used a curved border to cut the top section. After I put the two sections together they were embossed w/ progressively smaller sizes of the set of pierced rectangles dies. Only the largest layer was actually die cut..all the smaller ones were only embossed.

The popsicle was stamped, colored w/ Copics, over stamped w/ Versafine (to bring back the details) then fussy cut. I added some Wink of Stella on it for a little sparkle. The fuchsia borders were colored w/ Copics to match because I didn’t have any card stock to match. The greeting was stamped using the lilac posies ink.

Here are the Copics I used to color everything. NCC BLue Raspberry Popsicle copics 09645

This was made for Lydia’s Dare To Get Dirty challenge on Splitcoast & we’d love for you to join in so for all the details go to the Dare to Get Dirty Forum ..but you’ll need to be a Fan Club member. It’s sooooo easy! You still have a little time to enter the challenges, but this is last challenge on the last day of DTGD16.

This card looks simple, but it was off the charts aggravating! I was having one of THOSE days. I dropped or lost most everything I touched. And for the life of me, I can’t figure out why my supplies want to hide. When I drop them in the middle of the floor, they will scoot or shoot half way across a room to get under a piece of furniture like they’re sliding into home! And this requires getting down on my knees w/ a flashlight & long stick (yes I have one just for this purpose) to retrieve them. Dies are the worst..they are the same color as the hardwood floor..& they require the magnet extension on my screwdriver. I had to carry around so many retrieval tools, I felt like a vacuum cleaner w/ full attachments.

Anyway, the scene was stamped across the blank spot in an Embossing Folder Stamped piece. I didn’t like the way the stamped embossing folder piece turned out so the white topper covered it all up, lol. I also stamped the scene on the white then added a little mitre cornered frame around it. The black zigzag was die cut, the greeting & sequins added.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
