Weekly-Favorite For today’s Technique Challenge (TLC440) on Splitcoast, we are to pick one of the first 50 Technique Challenges. I chose TLC36, Keeping it Simple. So this is a very simple card. Especially since I already had the two long rectangles cut and just sitting there…even the little oval window was already cut.

The images are from DRS Designs and this cute little Big Mouth Bass is brand new! Isn’t he adorable? I thought if I paired him w/ one of the new Garden Bugs it would be perfect w/ the Caught a Bug greeting. I added a little dragonfly button I turned into a charm by going over it w/ a silver leafing pen and some stickles. After coloring the fish w/ Copics and cutting him out, I attached him to the card and drew a little water line and added some gems. The card is 5.50 x 4.25.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

It’s Dare to Get Dirty week on Splitcoast! I made this for Kittie’s fabulous challenge (DTGD13Kittie747). You’ll need to be a Splitcoast Fan Club Member to view the challenge.

For my card, I used images from Our Daily Bread designs. The background was made by using a brayer and rolling soft sand ink across the inside of the embossing folder then embossing a piece of white card stock. Since the ink only goes onto the raised surfaces of the folder, those areas become the recesses of the card stock. The brayer makes it a little more even, but I still had a few white areas, so I cheated a bit by filling those in w/ a Copic marker (Eggshell) that closely matched.

The butterflies were white embossed on vellum, the large one has a matching die, the small one was fussy cut. I attached only the centers of the butterflies to matching ivory shapes underneath. The sentiment was white embossed on vellum and backed w/ a sponged, die cut oval to make it stand out more. A Memory Box die cut frame was added on top w/ a few pearls. The finished card is 5.50 x 4.25.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

It’s Dare to Get Dirty week on Splitcoast and I made this for Cindy’s (DTGD13onehappystamper) fabulous challenge! You’ll need to be a Fan Club member to view the challenge, so check it out! Since I took my Copic certification classes from Cindy, I thought I’d better use them for her challenge! For my card, stamped the large sunflowers, colored them w/ Copics and fussy cut them. I added just a hint of sparkle in the flower centers w/ a Spica pen. They’re attached to white die cut layer.

I have 2 tutorials for doing this Monoprint Background…the first was for the Splitcoast Fan Club back in 2099 when I was on the Dirty Dozen team. If you’re aFan Club member, you can view it HERE. The second, is an updated tutorial from June 2013 with a few fun additions and you can view it HERE. This background is part of some I made using a chevron stencil and pigment ink. When I finished one background, I put the stencil (with all the ink still on it), ink side down on another sheet and brayered over it and this is what I got. It’s attached to a chevron embossed white background. The greeting was stamped on a die cut circle and attached to a stacked die cut pennant flag. The finished card is 5.50 x 4.25 and these are the Copics I used:
