I have this card for the Splitcoast Color Challenge (CC694)using Red, White & Blue in honor of Independence Day! I think my patriotic colored RV is also a great representation of a favorite summertime activity…camping. I’ll tell you though..this RV is waaayyy more comfy & stylish than any camping I’ve ever done.

To make my RV, I put the image into my Misti, stamped, colored, over stamped then fussy cut it. I wanted to give the impression of a big sun behind it & hills for it to drive over.  The blue edged hills were hand cut & sponged along the top edges. The greeting was added to the top portion of the Surprise Box insert die. 

Below is the inside & next to it are the Copics I used.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Happy 4th of July!

To make my summer lighthouse card, I used a small piece of a Brushos watercolor background I had in my stash. After die cutting the white rectangle, I also die cut a large oval & placed the watercolor bg behind it. The Lighthouse was die cut once out of white & once out of royal blue & pieced together. The little windows were colored w/ a couple of yellow Copics. The Summer & lower part of the hello tag were also die cut twice each & stacked. I used the clouds from the Hot Air Balloon Reverse die & also a larger cloud on top of the Hello. I had the die cut frame leftover from something else, so I sponged on similar colors & added it behind the white layer.

Here’s a look at the inside. I left it blank for now, until I decide who it’s going to.

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
