Wonderful Inspiration Challenge (IC268) at Splitcoast today! It’s all about Barbie! I don’t know about y’all, but as a kid, I loved my Barbie dolls. I was such a tomboy that Barbies were one of the only “girly” toys I liked. My sweet aunt Sandy used to make gorgeous, tiny little Barbie outfits for my sis & I every Christmas. I couldn’t wait for Christmas just to see what she’d made for Barbie. I saved them all and put them away then I let my DD play with them when she was young. Later, she saw how much vintage Barbies were selling for and big $ signs cha-chinged in her eyes. Until I brought up the fact that ours would probably not fetch as much due to the Military haircuts she’d given them.

As for my card, I went with Tribute Barbie. I liked the winding flower flourish and the colors. All images are Our Daily Bread designs. On the blue bg, I stamped the butterfly bg image with blue ink and sponged on a couple of colors of blue ink. I used a white gel pen and a blue micron pen to add the highlight/shadow lines for a faux embossed look.

For the woodgrain bg, I stamped the image w/ choc and sponged on choc & sienna inks.

I stamped the butterfly vine twice w/ choc ink and colored them w/ markers & a water brush. I trimmed on a diagonal the right edge of one & cut out some extra butterflies from the other. The trellis was made by punching the lg garden trellis punch, back to back (to make it wide) and then I snipped out some of the internal crossbeams to make my trellis more open. The sentiment was die cut w/ a tag tie that I cut one end then turned the die around and cut the other side so they’d both match.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Congrats to Wendy, today’s Featured Stamper at SCS! Love your gallery and you have so much to choose from. I finally picked Merry & Bright to case. I kept the holiday theme and general layout. I changed the CB folder, used an ornament instead of the sentiment and moved it to the center and added the sentiment below.

The ornament (B/S) was white embossed on the c/s and I used a nestie circle but cut around the top of the ornament and inserted it under the nestie circle to avoid cutting it. I added a little shading w/ a lt blue marker and liquid pearl dots. It’s layered on yet another medallion I made a few days ago that I sponged the edges w/ the center blue on the Kpad and attached to a larger circle I cut out of med blue (DCWV) w/ the mini scallop scissors.

The snowflake bg is actually a large paint chip I had embossed a while back. I lightly brayered over the top w/ white pigment ink and embossed w/ white ep. It’s attached to a large med blue card. I added the ribbon, the white embossed sentiment (SG) and some more liquid pearls in the corners.

For the images, I stamped the ornaments (Imaginisce) onto the matte coated card stock and heat set the ink. I don’t have any of the Copics everyone’s raving about, but I believe I do have every color that Sharpie makes. And since these are also permanent markers, I used them with a Prismacolor blender that’s made for their version of Copics. It works really well with the Sharpies. So I colored and blended until I was fairly happy. Then I added the white gel pen accents in sort of a bandana tech. I cut the ornaments out and attached them to plain white card stock that I stamped the fir branch (PSX) with the Kpad and the greeting (Stampendous) with cardinal ink. I edged this w/ a red Sharpie and added the dots using a red glaze pen.

For the green bg, I stamped the swirls (Autumn Leaves) using the leaf green ink, then added the white lines using the white gel pen in a version of the faux embossing. It’s edged w/ a white marker and these are attached to a bright blue card.
