Archive for the ‘Splitcoaststampers Weekly Favorite’ Category

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!

Stamps: Rubbernecker Stamps: Summer Bloom, Wishes Your Way
Paper:  Staples 110# white, cobalt blue, watercolor

Such terrific nail art for the Splitcoast Inspiration Challenge (IC756)! WOW! There are really some jaw dropping nails on that Pinterest Board & I kept coming back to THIS picture. Those colors really got me going!

So what to do? I figured the only way I was going to get colors close to those was to bring out the Copic Fluorescent markers. They hardly ever get used & they were just chomping at the bit. After stamping & coloring the daisies (& a few extra), I die cut using my out of the box technique & fussy cut the other 3. On the narrow layer behind the daisies, I used a brayer & a melon rainbow pad to bring in a little more color.

For the split background, I white embossed the dots on the black & stamped the dots in black on the white, then white embossed the greeting on a little word window black strip.

Here are the Copics I used:

For the Color Challenge on Splitcoast (CC793) today, we have 2 blues & a red. Perfect colors for a Patriotic card! 

I’m using a new soldiers silhouette image. I know these will look great as a dark silhouette, but I wanted to see how they’d look if I used another (inked) image to ink them. It’s an old technique called “stamp kissing“. I used the stars & stripes border to ink the silhouettes (I put them in my Misti so I could do it more than once). I like how they turned out..as if they’re draped in the stars & stripes. I separated the greeting, above & below, & used the same inks to stamp them. The piece down the side is a piece of sticky back paper w/ red, white & blue narrow strips stuck to it. The lower section has stars stamped w/ white. Just to add a little something extra, I also punched some stars & added them to the soldiers & also a couple on the bg.

 

On the inside I stamped the stars & stripe border onto a sort of triangular piece & added it down the left side.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
