For the Ways to Use It Challenge on Splitcoast (WT426), the topic is Discover! Use or try something new. For me, it was both…I used 2 new embossing folders AND I tried something new to me…embossing on duct tape.

I’ll bet most of you know or are related to someone described by this card. For me, it’s my brother in law. The guy lives for duct tape and bungee cords as a fix all for everything. He also has a lot of old cars. Not antiques…just old, and at least one should have been put out of its misery a long time ago. One year for Christmas, I gave him a new set of bungee cords. This was after my sis opened the hood of the old clunker (car, not brother in law, lol) and showed me how he had a bungee cord holding the accelerator cable. With raised eyebrows I just said “Really?” Then made sure sis was not the one driving the bungee mobile. When I found out he planed on doing some rewiring, I sent my hubby over (he actually KNOWS about wiring). I told him she is my only sis and I would not be happy if brother in law burned down their house.

The images are all from DRS Designs. So for my Man Thing card, I wanted to use duct tape, but could only find some dark almost black duct tape around here, so I used some foil tape (don’t know what it’s used for but it’s in the home improvement section) and stuck it to a piece of card stock and embossed it. I used some lg deckle scissors on the ends of the Man Thing part to look more like torn duct tape. The tool border was colored w/ Copics and I just happened to have a tool bg embossing folder to finish it off. The finished card is 4.25 x 5.50.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

ppy Tuesday!

For today’s Color Challenge on Splitcoast (CC425), the colors are Pink, another Pink & Gray…and also a dash of green w/ flowers for dessert. I have the 2 pinks, the dash of green & the flowers, but only a hint of gray in the colors of the window. I don’t have a gray embossing powder, so I used a black (for the stained glass window) and hope that’s acceptable.

The images are from Our Daily Bread designs. After embossing the stained glass window on designer paper, I added a few white accents w/ a white gel pen then added the coordinating die cut frame. The sentiment was stamped onto a ribbon banner and sponged inside w/ pink ink. I had a piece of a Cheery Lynn flourish already cut so I used it and some little punched flowers I had left over from another project. It’s all attached to another piece of designer paper and the finished card is 4.25 x 5.50.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a great day!

BEST OF 2013 

A big CONGRATS to Gayatri (Scrapawayg3), the Featured Stamper on Splitcoast (FS326)! What a wonderful little gallery she has and I chose her Just for You to case. I kept the layout, tag and lots of white space, but I used different images, different colors and added a few gems.

Julie Warner -

The images are from North Coast Creations, and are from a set called Crave the Rose. I stamped the large rose image across the front of my panel and a few extra on a scrap of white. After coloring w/ Copics, I cut out a few of the extras and stamped the quote on another piece of white. I used an ODBD/Spellbinders tag die to die cut it, but I lengthened it a bit using the Nestie Resizing Technique. I added a few gems in different colors and sizes for a little more visual interest. The finished card is 4.25 x 5.50.

Congrats again, Gayatri, enjoy your week! Thanks so much for stopping by!
