Posts Tagged ‘Sponging’


A big congrats to DJ Rants, the newest Featured Stamper (FS528) on Splitcoast! We were on the ODBD team together for quite a while & I’ve been an admirer of her fab gallery for a long time. After much browsing, I chose THIS to case. I kept the birthday theme & most of the layout, but I used different images, different paper & left off the top frame.
To make my birthday card, I die cut 3 white panels then sponged each of them from the top left inward, letting it fade to white in the lower right. I stamped & die cut the big Happy on the largest layer so the section wouldn’t be missed when the other layers were added on top. The little birthday was stamped on the lower right of the top panel. I also die cut 2 more big Happy dies out of white to shadow the stamped version. 

Here’s a look at the inside.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

A big Congrats to Linda, the newest Featured Stamper (FS527) on Splitcoast! After strolling thru her sweet gallery, I chose THIS to case. I kept the CAS design & sponging, but used different colors, different images & made mine a Christmas card. 
I had the white piece already die cut so I used some Distress inks to sponge in some pink/reds from the upper left & some lime greens from the lower right. The pine bough was stamped a couple of times w/ a combo of the green Memento inks and the greeting was stamped w/ black. I added a narrow pine green layer & instead of using another white layer to use the embossing folder on, I embossed the front of the card. The trick w/ this is, because I only wanted the front embossed, I had to put the card front in upside down in the folder, so it needed to be a pattern that looked good going either direction. Anything else would just look upside down 🙂

I added a die cut paper bow to finish. Here’s a look at the inside. The embossed card front also gives a nice look to the top of the inside.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

This was also inspired by the Inspiration Challenge (IC678) & THIS is the picture/colors that inspired me.

To make my Wonderland card, I stamped the Winter Fence Line, masked off the bottom, put a circle mask for the moon & sponged in the pink & lilac for the sky. I used Copics to color the shadows on the snow then added snow in the sky & on the trees w/ a white gel pen. After die cutting the lilac & purple layers, the greeting was white embossed under the window.  I attached the scene behind the window then added the die cut snowflakes & a little stickles on the snow in the trees.

Here’s a look at the inside…more sponging & the same fence line was stamped w/ the lilac ink. Below it are the Copics I used.
