Archive for the ‘Embossing/Dry or Heat’ Category

It’s my pleasure to host the first Inspiration Challenge of June (IC757)! And such an inspiring site we have w/ Design Pool & their Pinterest Boards. THIS is the picture that inspired my card. 

I have a card today w/ most of the fish going one way & the one fish going the other. Doesn’t seem to bother him…he’s smiling! I think that’s probably me, lol. My mom always said I have a mind of my own & growing up, in order to get me to do something, she had to make me think it was my idea. Anyway, for my scene, I stamped the background fish w/ teal ink onto some turquoise paper that had been spritzed w/ a little bleach. I added just a touch of color to the fish. The main character was was stamped on white & fussy cut. I added a little stickles to him & to the stamped bubbles. The porthole was die cut (yay! I found a die that fit!). On the teal bg, I embossed it w/ a wave folder & some of it cracked, revealing the white core. So I just went w/ it & sanded off some of the high points to reveal the white. 

The greeting was split w/ half on the front & the rest inside. Below it are the Copics I used.

Welcome to June!  And it’s time for the Splitcoaststampers Fan Club June Christmas Challenge! We have a year of new Christmas Challenges!  You’ll need to be Fan Club member but that’s easy…just click the blue link to find out how. Bet you’re wondering what the challenge theme is..I’d love to tell you but you’ll have to go see for yourself.

For my fairly CAS Christmas card, I put the stripe bg image into my Misti, inked it first w/ Versamark, then w/ the crimson dye ink. I knew I wanted to heat emboss it so using the Versamark under the dye ink gives it a little more open time. I used a very sparkly red tinsel powder & IRL this card is soooo sparkly! The stripes are actually horizontal on the image so I turned my panel to have them diagonal, then turned it again to stamp them going the other way.

The big greeting was also embossed in the same manner & layered onto a slightly larger, red scallop circle. The white top section was cut w/ a center angled die & I added a red scallop die cut border under it, but the lg greeting circle covered up most of it.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

It’s my pleasure to host the Splitcoast Featured Stamper Challenge (FS695) so a big congrats to Chrysi! She has a wonderful gallery & I chose THIS card to case. I kept the blues & watery looking bg but used different images, dies & swapped out a curved flower for the curved palm tree.

For my card, I made a watercolor bg which originally was going to be the feature of the card, but to my eyes, just wasn’t that impressive. So it’s now a background & I think it works better there. The flower image is a layered, multi part stamp & I used some different blues & greens to stamp it onto the circle. The partial greeting was white embossed onto the cobalt blue.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
