It’s my pleasure to host the Splitcoast Featured Stamper Challenge (FS658) this week, so a big congrats to Laura! After much browsing, I chose THIS card to case. I kept the layout, but flipped it & used die cuts instead of stamps on mine.

For my autumn card, I die cut all the scarecrow pieces out of different colors, added a bit of shading w/ some Prismacolor pencils & put them all together. I added a fence & some corn stalks. The greeting was stamped onto a shortened stitched pennant.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Supplies:

Stamps: Rubbernecker Stamps:  Splatter Leaves
Paper:  Staples 110# white, scraps of brown, black, orange, yellow, dp (MME – Check Him Out)
Ink:  Versaclair nocturne (greeting)
Accessories:  Rubbernecker Stamps:Scarecrow,Corn Stalks, Circle Stitch, Rectangle Stitch, Picket Fence, Nested Banner Stitch dies, Prismacolor Pencils

For the Inspiration Challenge (IC719) on Splitcoast, we’re heading to Dormify. A fun site (especially for back to schoolers) & I was inspired by THIS poster. I really liked the orange/blue combo.

To make my beach scene, I masked off the water & sky area & sponged in some oranges for the ground/sand, added a little brown to the sides along w/ stamping a splatter image for a little texture. The mask was reversed for the water & sky & those were sponged. I used some Tombow markers to “ink” up the palm trees & stamped them on either side. Surfer boy Zeke was colored & fussy cut & the old woody was die cut. The greeting is partly another stamp combined w/ some die cut & colored letters. I added the white wavy polaroid type frame for a little separation & to make the greeting stand out.

Here is the inside & the Copics I used:

Congrats to Rebecca, the newest Featured Stamper (FS657) on Splitcoast! She has a lovely gallery & I chose THIS card to case. I kept the fall leaf theme w/ the  big central leaf, but I used different images, different colors & a different technique.

For my fall card, I started by die cutting a large leaf shape & using the negative as a mask to sponge Distress inks in the fall colors. Then I stamped the Single Fall Tree in Distress oxide ink in ground espresso. I used a water brush & more of the distress inks to add a little splatter. 

For the larger bg, I used the woodgrain bg, but not in the conventional sense. I used a technique I learned probably 15 yrs ago but I don’t see it used these days. I wanted the bg to look a little more solid, so I used a hair dryer to slightly heat a piece of fun foam then pressed it to the woodgrain bg. What I got was a solid version of the woodgrain. (See pic below.) The green block is made of fun foam & I inked it so you could see it better. This works w/ any stamp, it just looks better w/ some. I will caution you, do not use a heat gun..it’s just too hot & will melt the foam into a solid hard mess. I have an old, not very powerful hair dryer I kept just for things like this 😀 . I used my solid foam “stamp” & Distress inks in vintage photo & walnut stain for the bg.

Here’s the inside.
