Archive for the ‘Sponging’ Category


It’s my pleasure to host the Splitcoast Inspiration Challenge (IC896) this week and I chose Running with Sisters & their Pinterest Board. THIS was my inspiration. I loved the flowers & bright orange color.

For my mini slimline card, I die cut the panel & sponged on the apricot & nectar inks for my background, only going about 3/4 of the way up. Then I stamped a bunch of the 3 sizes of daisies onto copy paper and die cut them all to use as masks. I had already decided to bleach the petals but I needed the masks to arrange where to stamp, then mask the ones that needed it.

After stamping the daises w/ Versafine Clair ink (I used this because Memento just doesn’t stand up to the bleach very well), I used a synthetic paint brush to bleach the petals. FYI..the paint bristles  need to be synthetic because bleach will totally destroy natural bristles, so go ahead & use a cheap synthetic one. Depending on the ink color, bleach will usually not take the paper back to white. Since I used a red-orange, after bleaching, I got an off white. I also stamped 3 more daisies onto white & die cut them. These 3 are popped up w/ fun foam.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

A big congrats to Melissa, the newest Featured Stamper (FS833)! She has a wonderful gallery & I chose THIS card to case. I kept the whale get well theme, but used different images, dies & colors, & since my greeting was bigger, I moved it to the stenciled background.

For my little whale card, after coloring & die cutting him, I added a couple of rounded rectangles under him & a section of die cut blue waves below him. The background was stenciled w/ different colors, then the greeting was split, above and below him. 

The white rounded square & whale were popped up a bit.

Here are the Copics I used. I colored the whole set but ended up using just the whale, so the blues & greys were used on him.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

For the Splitcoast Inspiration Challenge, we are headed to the Pinterest Board of Jodi McKee, where I found THIS picture for my inspiration.

My card started w/ a stamp, stencil & die combo. After stamping the outline, I used the multilayer stencil to sponge the greens, blue & purple inks onto the flower. I added a few highlights w/ a white Prismacolor pencil then used the coordinating die to cut it out.  For the pinwheel background, I die cut it out of dark purple & light purple, using the darker for the outside frame & the lighter for the inserts. It’s backed w/ a piece of designer paper. The greeting was stamped on the smallest size of the stitched rectangles set.

I used some fun foam to pop up the flower image.
