Today’s Clean & Simple (CAS433) Challenge on Splitcoast, is all about Flag Day…use the colors of your country’s flag. Nothing better than the old Red, White & Blue! 

When this greeting came out last month, I immediately had a picture of a Super Hero Mom w/ a red cape. So after stamping her, I drew a flowing cape & colored everything to go with the Flag theme & threw in some stars & stripes (chevrons).   I die cut a pierced oval frame & royal blue layer for it, then did a little out of the box so Super Mom could be coming out of the frame. I’m sure Super Mom had to do a quick Clark Kent maneuver to fly off and take care of some kid (or husband) emergency 😛
Here are the Copics I used to color her.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Have to go put on my cape now & take care of a few things, lol.

Well, the added the challenge for the DT is a partial die cut…and I totally missed it. I was looking forward to it but I just had it in my head that it was for the next challenge. 🙁 I do have a partially embossed background so maybe that will suffice. 

I started by stamping the Summer Flower Pops Background with the combo of chalk inks onto white card stock then I die cut one large, one small rectangle & one oval to back the greeting. I edged the rectangle layers with blue & green permapaque markers to give them a little more definition. The greeting was put together with two stamps & two of the chalk ink colors.

The upper corners & lower edge were punched & I added a turquoise layer underneath so the punch work would show up better. Some extra flowers (from the same punch) were added here & there along w/ some crystals & silky blue bow w/ a cut glass button on top.

Here’s a look at the inside using a narrow leftover frame along with a flower corner stamp.

And don’t forget the 50% off stamp of the month…Aprons! Here’s a card I made way back when using it, in case you need a little inspiration! (If you click the picture, it will take you to the details.)

Since I didn’t have a chance to do the Color Challenge (CC527) on Splitcoast yesterday, I’m combining it with the Sketch Challenge (SC537) today. When I started out, I wasn’t sure I would be able to work these colors but I found one piece of a sand card stock which is a dead ringer for the sahara sand. Other than white, that’s the only card stock I used. I white heat embossed the flowers & greeting on the sand card stock. On the flowers, I used Prismacolor pencils to add the other 2 colors…wasabi & pink.  For the sketch, I turned the square to better fit & the die cut border serves as my long horizontal panel.

After I die cut the sand card stock, I colored a narrow strip w/ a pink pencil & attached it behind the cut out to act as the ribbon element on the sketch. The flowers were fussy cut & attached on my square/diamond shape. I also used the pink pencil around the border of the sand layer & added a fussy cut butterfly.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
