Snowflake Ornament cu07014
Today’s Ways to Use It Challenge (WT544) is all about the left hand side. So my ornament image is on the left side of the card & so is the greeting.
Snowflake Ornament 07016
After stamping the ornament with Memento, I colored it w/ Copics then over stamped w/ Versafine (using my Misti).  The ornament was reverse masked in order to stamp the snowflakes inside, then masked completely to stamp the bare branches & sponge in the background. I used a splatter image to add the snowflakes w/ white ink & I also white embossed them. I added a sparkle flecked gray layer behind the ornament & also behind the fancy die cut on the other side. A little stickles was added for sparkle & a little gray bow.

I didn’t take a pic of the Copics because they were all cool grays…C0, C2, C4, C5, C7.

Thanks so much for stopping by! This is also for the DRS Thursday Challenge today…You Left Me Hanging! (have something hanging or dangling)..DRS images are not required & there’s a nice prize up for grabs.

Black Tie Wedding Anniversary 07072
Since anything goes is the challenge, this is my anything. Hubby & I have an anniversary at the end of this month & since we both love birds, I thought I would make a “love bird anniversary” card using the sweet new Bird dies. I decided to dress them as a black tie wedding couple. I did stamp one of the Flower Pop images w/ white ink on the black “dress” of the birdy bride & added a tulle veil under her hat. More tulle was added between the solid heart & the scroll heart above them. The Love die cut was double stacked and added below them.

Here’s a look at the inside.

NCC Lime Sherbet cu 07091
Today’s Color Challenge (CC543) on Splitcoast is lime, Bermuda Bay & gray. I don’t have much gray card stock on hand, so I dug around in my dp and found a dark charcoal & a gray/white print.
NCC Lime Sherbet07092
I thought the lime & Bermuda colors would work nicely for a lime sherbet float in a blue/green glass. After putting the image in my Misti, I stamped the ice cream float image first with Memento, colored with Copics then over stamped w/ Versafine. It was die cut with an ODBD stitched oval (w/ a little out of the box on the straw). The Bermuda layer was die cut w/ the ODBD oval dies & I used the A2 matting basics for the the next 2 layers. The greeting was already part of the charcoal dp & the colors were perfect so I used it. I added a ribbon, colored to match & some die cut patterned clouds.

Here’s a look at the inside & also the Copics I used.
