Today’s Color Challenge (CC605) on Splitcoaststampers, is a collection of wonderful fall colors w/ the dessert of using a leaf or two.
I used a bunch of left over pieces of white linen & plain white card stock. On the small linen rectangle, I used a rainbow pad (that happened to have the right colors) to ink the greeting (sneak peek of a new item!) & stamped it. I used the same ink pad to brayer the partial panel on the left & the large frame bg then arranged all the panels together. I die cut the solid leaves out of more brayered bg & the vein overlay out of more white linen. All in all, pretty quick..especially for me!

Here’s the inside w/ another new greeting to be released soon!
Thanks so much for stopping by!

I Love Snowmen 08147
Since the challenge is stripes, I thought a stripe embossing folder on the white & the Beaded Strings Bg on top of the brayered layer would be perfect. After I stamped the cute Umbrella Snowman w/ Memento & colored with Copics, I overstamped w/ Versafine (it was still in my Misti), then die cut w/ a little out of the box to keep from cutting the umbrella. I then die cut it again using the next smallest die, brayered the cut off frame then put it back. The stripes on the front were embossed on an angle & just on the one corner for a little interest. The partial I Love Snow greeting was stamped onto a pennant which was colored around the edges w/ Copics & the die cut Snow was added below. The extra snowflakes were die cut from the Snow die.

Here’s the inside & below it are the Copics I used.

A big congrats to Pat, the newest Featured Stamper (FS464) on Splitcoast! She has such a beautiful gallery & I chose THIS to case. I kept the technique of the brayered embossing folder & layout, but I used different colors, a different embossing folder & different flower dies.

To make my card, I brayered the inside of the embossing folder w/ the fresh greens ink pad then embossed the large white panel. Then I die cut it w/ the largest Flourished Star Pattern die to get the tiny pierced edges. The Asters, Posies & Leaves were all die cut out of white & I sponged a little yellow & orange ink (from the melon melody ink pad) in the centers. The butterflies were stamped w/ the same yellow/orange ink & die cut.

The greeting was stamped & die cut w/ a Mini Tag then all the flowers were assembled & attached. I added a bunch of die cut circles (from the Asters dies) to the centers of the embossed rings for a little extra punch. 

Here’s a look at the inside.
