Archive for the ‘Sponging’ Category

Welcome to December! I made this for 2 Splitcoast Challenges..the Splitcoaststampers Fan Club December Christmas Challenge & the Featured Stamper (FS669) where the FS is my friend Kia! I chose THIS card as my inspiration. I loved the layout & framing so I kept those, but I used different images/dies & opted to use an embossed & sponged frame instead of stenciling. As for the Christmas Challenge, 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 card, I used some deckle rectangle dies to make 2 sizes of frames. On the white one, I sponged the inside & outside edges to give it some contrast & on the larger one, I ran it thru w/ an embossing folder then lightly sponged over the top of the embossing. The ornament branch was colored & die cut w/ its matching die & I used fun foam to pop it & the frame up a bit. A couple of die cut cardinals were added for a little pop of red.

The greeting was stamped & I used my out of the box die cutting technique on it. It works the same way as it does when using an image…just make your cuts right on the black lines where they go inside the die.
Here are the Copics I used.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

For the Splitcoast Inspiration Challenge (IC729), we’re headed to a wonderful Christmas site called Bronner’s Christmas Wonderland. After much window shopping, I chose THIS item as my inspiration. I just rec’d this cute little Owl image & I knew it would be perfect.

After stamping & coloring this cute owl & his sleigh, I die cut them w/ their matching dies & attached them to one I cut out of white cardboard..it gives the image a little lift & sturdiness. For the bg panel, I die cut the frame w/ curves die & snipped out the topmost curve. I put the lower sections back into the frame because I thought they resembled hills of snow. The blue bg has a snowflake frame embossed on it & I sponged it & splattered it w/ water. A partial line of trees was tucked into one side & a lamppost added to the other side.

Here are the Copics I used to color everything.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Congrats to Karen, the newest Featured Stamper on Splitcoast! She has a lovely little gallery & I chose THIS card to case. I liked the wreath on the brick wall, so I kept that. But I used different stamps, dies & colors & used a stencil for my brick instead of an embossing folder.

On my bg, I sponged Brilliance gold & lightning black inks thru the brick wall stencil. While the stencil was still in place, I stamped the splatter bg using the same inks to give the bricks a little texture. IRL, it’s very gold & shimmery! The wreath was stamped, colored & I used my out of the box die cutting technique & a circle die to cut it. Large script greeting fit perfectly inside the wreath & I stamped it in black first, then again in the lightning black so it has a nice shimmer, too. A gold circle layer was added & done!

Here are the Copics I used for the wreath:
