Archive for the ‘Sponging’ Category


It’s my honor to host the Splitcoast Featured Stamper Challenge (FS715) & a big congrats to Marianne! She has a lovely gallery & I chose THIS card to case. I kept the overall floral w/ the greeting on top, but I used different images & colors & instead of coloring the flowers, I colored the bg & bleached the flowers.

I started by sponging a white bg, with greens from the top down & pinks from the bottom up. When I’m using two opposite colors like this, I usually leave a very pale to mostly white area in the middle so I don’t end up w/ an ugly color. After stamping the floral bg image on top, I used a tiny, synthetic paint brush & bleach to remove color from the flowers & few of the leaves. If you try this, make sure your brush is synthetic because bleach will totally destroy natural hair brushes. It was die cut twice, using the largest & next smaller stitched rectangle dies. The white half scallop layer was inserted in between, then attached to the card front. The 4 part layered rose was stamped w/ the same pink & green inks & die cut. The rose & greeting are popped up on fun foam.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

For the Splitcoast Inspiration Challenge (IC776), we are headed to Halloween Costumes. Some really spooky stuff there & I was inspired by THIS picture.

For my spooky scene, I die cut the grey bg & all the crows, bats, tree & owl out of black. The moon is just a largish yellow circle & I sponged some orange ink around the edges. The white fence & tombstones were die cut & I wrote RIP on a few of them & added cracks to others (these are all part of the Spooky House die) . I had a sponged piece of yellow/orange & die cut the pumpkin out of it. For the clouds at the top, I sponged on some picket fence Distress ink on the edges in order to have them show up a little more. Then it was just a matter of piecing everything all together. The only stamping on this was the greeting & I sponged the edges of it, too. The eyes were added on the crows & bats using a white Posca paint pen.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

For the Splitcoast Inspiration Challenge (IC775), we’re headed to the Eyelet Outlet. They have a lot of fun stuff & I chose THIS for my inspiration. Love all the coffee go cups!

I adore these new coffee cats from Rubbernecker. There’s also a matching die, but I didn’t use it for this. So cute! And the new background images are right up my alley because I love making my own backgrounds. For this card, I used the yellow, orange & cinnamon Color Fuse inks to sponge the gradient color down a white panel. Since it had so much ink on it, I used a heat gun to help dry it before putting it in my Misti & stamping the bg w/ the acorn Versaclair. The cute little coffee cat was also stamped w/ the acorn ink & I water colored it & added a ground line so it wouldn’t look like he was floating.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
