Archive for the ‘Memorial Day/ July 4th/Military’ Category

Congrats to Joanne, the newest Featured Stamper (FS642) on Splitcoast! She has a wonderful gallery & I was inspired by THIS patriotic card. I kept the Freedom theme & flag,  but I used different stamps, different dies & changed the layout. And this Memorial Day, please take a moment to remember & give thanks to those that gave their lives to ensure our freedom. 

For my card, I stamped the patriotic wave, multiple times (to get good coverage). A Misti is really handy for solid images like this. Since the ink I used isn’t technically for use w/ Copics, I heat set it then carefully colored in the red stripe & fussy cut the top edge. I did the same for the big heart shaped flag image. The cityscape & USA were die cut & I had to link the letters because I ran out of room to stretch them out. The greeting is 2 put together & I used a corner rounder on the rectangle.

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

Thanks so much for stopping by!

I have this card for the Splitcoast Color Challenge (CC694)using Red, White & Blue in honor of Independence Day! I think my patriotic colored RV is also a great representation of a favorite summertime activity…camping. I’ll tell you though..this RV is waaayyy more comfy & stylish than any camping I’ve ever done.

To make my RV, I put the image into my Misti, stamped, colored, over stamped then fussy cut it. I wanted to give the impression of a big sun behind it & hills for it to drive over.  The blue edged hills were hand cut & sponged along the top edges. The greeting was added to the top portion of the Surprise Box insert die. 

Below is the inside & next to it are the Copics I used.

For today’s Free for All Challenge (F4A279), we are to make a card for July 4th. Mine is pretty quick & easy..after stamping, coloring and fussy cutting the Liberty Bell & USA letters, I added the letters to die cut red, white & blue banners. The white bg was die cut & embossed w/ a stripe pattern and the greeting was die cut & added to a larger die cut circle w/ the ring of stars on it. The finished card is 4.25 5.50 and these are the Copics I used.
