Julie Warner-justwritedesigns-The Write Stuff

Congrats to Debbie, the Featured Stamper this week on Splitcoast (FS283)! Such a wonderful gallery! I chose her CAS Sympathy to case. I kept the colors and layout and sympathy card but I changed the papers, images and used a punched butterfly instead of a stamped one.

The image are from Our Daily Bread designs. Sadly, I needed a sympathy card and I thought Debbie’s layout and serene colors would be perfect. The images are new from Our Daily Bread designs.

I first white embossed the lily image on the green, but I didn’t really think it looked the way I wanted. So I stamped it in black on another piece of the green, bleached the lilies then added color w/ markers and cut it out. I attached it a little down on the white embossed one so a little of the white would show. I also painted a little bleach on some of the corner elements in the border image. The sentiment was stamped directly on the designer paper and the double layer butterfly was added below. The finished card is 4.25 x 5.50.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Happy Friday! For today’s Free for All Challenge (F4A124), we are to use something ‘wood”, image or actual…whatever! So I’m using a “wooden ship” image. It’s new from Our Daily Bread designs and my new fave image.

The ship scene was stamped on white, water colored w/ markers, trimmed closely and attached to a piece of vanilla c/s that I die cut and resized to fit the image. The sentiment was stamped on a piece of the dp w/ the indigo ink and the compass was stamped w/ the tea dye ink.

The rest is all dp from a big 12×12 pad but the only name I can see on it is ATD but I liked the colors and textured papers and thought they went well w/ my vintage looking image. On the green section, I stamped the compass repeatedly with the bamboo ink then cut it in half so I could have the bands of color across the top and bottom. I hid the seam behind a striped band of dp, layered on the cranberry and a piece of gold (it’s the reverse side of the green).  The finished card is 5.50 x 4.25.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Stamps:ODBD – Surging Sea, Smooth Sailing
Paper: Neenah white, vanilla, cranberry, dp (ATD)

Welcome to the Our Daily Bread designs July Release Blog Hop! 

I can’t tell you how much I love this new ship image! I’ve been wanting a great looking ship for so long and when Kelley showed us this Surging Sea set, I was over the moon! There’s just something about old sailing ships and nautical images that just float my boat, lol.  And it’s perfect for masculine cards.

For my card, I sponged on the rainbow of blues from a couple of Kaliedacolor ink pads, then stamped the image in permanent black ink. It was die cut using a rectangle die I resized to fit the image. These are some of my favorite colors and they work so well for a seafaring image. Since the Kpads are dye ink, they are highly bleachable. I used a tiny acrylic paintbrush to paint the bleach onto the ship and compass rose. After it dried, I added a little yellow to the flags. You have to wait until it’s completely dry before adding color w/ water based markers, or else it will just continue to bleach. You can help it along w/ a heat tool, but back away a little.

The single compass rose was stamped on the vertical white strip and some netting from a bag of lemons was stretched over it (it looked like fish net to me). I used a circle punch for the little blue circles under the eyelets. The  greeting (from Smooth Sailing set) was die cut, but not embossed, using the Spellbinders nested pennant set. I cut to the half way point, then turned the die around and cut the flag point again on the opposite end.  The edge came about because I bent one corner of my 5.50 x 4.25 card and it looked funny. So I took one of the larger Labels 8 and cut the card edge and added some die cut strips of left over background.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
