Archive for the ‘Embossing/Dry or Heat’ Category

For the Inspiration Challenge we’re headed across the pond to a lovely site. I chose THIS for my inspiration.

My card today took way longer that I planned on spending but that’s how it goes sometimes. I wanted a twig wreath w/ stars on it but I wanted them to be a silver/gold mix & look a little rustic. The stars were pretty easy. I die cut them then covered them w/ a mix of silver ink on the inside & gold ink around the edges then sprinkled on 2 different embossing powders. One is a gilded gold (mostly clear w/ gold flecks) & the other was a stardust powder (mostly clear w/ little sparkles & a hint of silver). I did the same for the grosgrain ribbon die & bow die cut. On the wreath, I die cut it out of brown then used the same gold ep just in places here & there. Then part that took too long happened because I thought w/ the open area in the center, why not make it a shaker? But the sequins looked too bright & shiny. So I did the embossing again on a piece of ivory & die cut the sequins using a sequin die. Big trouble! Most the embossing flaked right off. So….I had piece sticker paper w/ most of the stickers gone & just the borders left. I peeled it off & stuck my sequins to the sticky side & embossed them again. That worked. I should have thought of that first! Then I put it all together & stamped half of the greeting on the front w/ Versa Clair nocturne & sprinkle the gilded gold powder on it & embossed it. You can see it in the close up but head on, it just looks black.

Here’s the inside.

For today’s Color Challenge (CC759) on Splitcoast, the colors are mango, rose & pear. To be honest, these colors are not on my go to list & I don’t have these colors, so I came as close as I could. 

For my card, I first inked a craft sheet w/ distress oxide inks, misted then pressed my paper to it. After I dried it, the leaves were stamped, masking as I went. I pressed some mini Distress inks to a solid version of the leaf, spritzed it then stamped it inside the outline leaves. It still didn’t look right, so I used a paintbrush & some embossing ink & painted inside the leaves & clear embossed them to make them stand out a bit more. The green pear top layer was die cut & the window was cut using my resizing technique to make it longer than a std rect. The 3 little leaves are from a couple of small punches. The fall part of the greeting was stamped & the hello is a double stacked die cut.

Congrats to Jan, the newest Featured Stamper (FS659) on Splitcoast! She has one fab gallery & it was really hard to pick just one. But THIS card really stayed w/ me so I picked it to case. I kept the big, patterned die cut letters & most of the colors, but I used different stamps, different dies & turned it into a Christmas card. 

For my version, after coloring the many moose (mooses? meeses? I know the plural is the same as the singular..it just looks weird, kwim?), they were die cut w/ the matching dies. The bg was sponged w/ Distress inks & splattered w/ water. On the Merry letters, I sponged the Brilliance ink onto red c/s using several new Rubbernecker stencils, spritzed it w/ shimmer spray,  then die cut them. I added some Washi tape toward the top & a couple of stitched snow hills at the bottom before adding the moose herd. The Christmas was white embossed on black & tucked under the washi tape.

Here are the Copics I used.
