I made this for today’s Technique Challenge (TLC382) and the CAS Challenge (CAS175) using a pic of a bathing suit as inspiration. The dryer sheet flower is pretty obvious, but this really is a quick and simple card. The dryer sheet flower was pretty quick because I cut the layers 6 at a time w/ a scalloped circle die. I didn’t do the spray ink thing because if I’d taken the time to find those, it wouldn’t have been quick. So I just brayered over them real quick and slapped them together w/ a lg brad and attached to a stamped crochet edge circle. Then I added a little stickles.

The images are all from Our Daily Bread designs and the quote was die cut and the only reason it’s on a separated panel from the frame is because I stamped it a little crooked so I had to add another layer. Oh well. The crochet border was stamped a few times at the bottom and put my 5.50 x 4.25 card together.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

And Happy Sunday!

I made this quick and easy Father’s Day card yesterday but didn’t have a chance to post it until today.  I love these little scenic images from Stampendous and recently acquired several of them This one, I think, makes a terrific Dad card and it was so easy to quickly color in with markers.  This is also for one of the Splitcoast VSN (Virtual Stamp Night) challenges, JUN12VSNG, Journey of the Seas.

The card is 5.50 x 4.25 and I wanted a cool font for the sentiment but found I only have a few Father’s Day greetings in my collection, so I computer generated it, trimmed it to size and used a long rectangle die to cut the window.  I used a dot border embossing folder and a stylus to add the raised dots at the bottom.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a great Father’s Day!

A big CONGRATS to Emily, the Featured Stamper this week on Splitcoast (FS280)! Emily has been a regular in the challenges and she has such a wonderful gallery. I chose her God’s Love Sympathy card. I kept the half tree type image, but changed most everything else. Really, I did case her card! But like everything I’ve worked on this last week, it took a left turn. Sometimes that happens and you just gotta go with it.

The images are a sneak peek from DRS Designs. Love this lazy leopard but I bet you never thought you’d see a pink leopard. Pink Panther, maybe. But hey, I found this really neat pink ribbon w/ leopard spots and I just had to use it.  So I planned on using the same layout Emily did, but when I was looking for some black card stock, I found this cute little black oval frame and that was all she wrote. I decided I needed to use it and I did a quick little out of the box cutting on my image to fit the oval.

By the way, I think I’ll also add this to Saturday’s IC341 because I saw this really cool leopard necklace that made me think of this leopard image to begin with. And while I’m working on challenges, I’ll add it to the Fan Club gallery, cause she’s a fancy pink leopard w/ a pink diamond brad on her pink leopard ribbon!

The background is an embossing folder. It took me longer to figure out how to color it like I wanted than anything else on this card. I arrived at this final result by sponging on the pink ink (not too carefully…there’s a lot of background so go for it!). Then I rubbed the soft sand ink pad across the high points and lastly, tapped the black ink (with a light touch) on the high points, kind of hit and miss.  I think it goes with the ribbon really well now. The finished card is 4.25 x 5.50.

Thanks so much for looking!
