For my first project, I’m using the fabulous new St. Patrick’s Day set. I was in a real gold embossing mood, and I used a lot of gold embossing powder on both of my cards. But I just love gold embossing with the spring greens on a St. Patrick’s Day card. Since as a general rule, embossing powder & Copics don’t play together well, I stamped the frame first with Memento cantaloupe ink, figuring that the color would blend in with the gold. I added the greens in the frame with Copics, then used a stamp positioner to line up the frame again, stamp it with gold pigment ink, then heat embossed w/ the gold powder. The Irish Blessing was gold embossed inside the frame, die cut, then added to a green fancy die cut.

For the largest green & gold layer, I gold embossed the Vintage Pattern Mini 2 then sponged on two green inks & die cut w/ the largest of the Flourished Star Pattern dies. The metallic gold rectangle was die cut using the same die, but I had to resize it to make it smaller. I also did the clover image the same way as the frame, cut it the added it under the frame. The finished card is 4.25 x 5.50 and these are the Copics I used (the violets were used on the clover flowers, but are very hard to see).

Gold Easter Eggs cu 05750
My second card uses several new ODBD sets…Floral Egg, Blessed Easter &  Basket of Blessings sets. I started by making a large water color background with Twinkling H2O’s in pastel colors. It’s almost impossible to capture the subtle shimmer, but it adds a lot in real life. I then gold embossed the Floral Egg & smaller eggs; die cut the smaller eggs & fussy cut the large egg. The grass was die cut using the fabulous Grass Border die and I made a frame out of the left over background & gold embossed the greeting on it.

The pink gingham (from the gorgeous new ODBD Shabby Rose paper collection) was die cut using the Flourished Star Pattern die (do you think I LOVE this die?) & the remaining twinkling background was added underneath. I used some leftover eggs and pieces for the inside.

Blue Dragonfly DTGD09  3011 final

The Splitcoaststampers Dirty Dozen/Dirty Dozen Alumni have been working really hard to put together 3 days of fantastic challenges. My friend and “roomie” on the Dirty Dozen, Jami (sgtstamper) asked me to make a sample for her challenge on Saturday, July 25.

These are a couple of views of my card, Blue Dragonfly. You’ll need to visit the DTGD09 challenge for details on the challenge, and you’ll need to be a Fan Club member to view it and join in. These great challenges are just one of the wonderful perks you receive for joining the Fan Club.

The dragonflies were stamped and colored w/ Twinkling H2o’s and cut out. I did a second one that I used to attach on top w/ foam tape for a little dimension. The layer they’re on was cut w/ a Spellbinders Labels 3 set. I left the die on top after cutting/embossing and sponged on some lt blue ink. The layer under it was a leftover piece from another project that I painted some H2O’s over the top.

The first blue layer was bugged w/ the Swiss Dots folder. The sentiment was cut out and attached to another piece of the painted bg c/s which was cut w/ the smallest Nestie ovals, just a little off center.

Rhinestones were added to the branch, ribbon across the bottom and the dragonfly charm was attached w/ a rhinestone brad.
Hope to see you in the DTGD challenges! Thanks for stopping by!
