The Color Challenge on Splitcoast (CC745) is red, white & blue w/ a dessert option of Patriotic. Since it’s almost the 4th of July, it sounded perfect. 

My card is pretty simple..I colored & fussy cut the patriotic heart & blue layer behind it. Stamped the greeting on the die cut white front. I also die cut the band of stars down the left & replaced the outline w/ a blue one.

Here’s the inside & below it are the Copics I used.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

A big congrats to Julee, the newest Featured Stamper  (FS646) on Splitcoast! She has a gorgeous gallery & I picked several I wanted to case, but kept coming back to THIS card. I kept the coffee theme & layout, but used different images, different dies & made my own background paper.

For my card, I stamped the bg text a bunch of times w/ the truffle ink onto cream c/s, masking the edge so they wouldn’t run over each other, then stamped the splats & Coffee words & inked the edges. The 2 coffee go cups were sponged in the two different colors & die cut branches were added. The greeting is 2 put together on a die cut circle w/ the edges sponges. I forgot about the ribbon until after I had already glued the panel to the card, so I just frayed the left edge instead of trying to tuck it under.

Here’s a look at the inside.

The Splitcoast Inspiration Challenge (IC707) is a fabric site full of colors & patterns. I was inspired by THIS fabric for the bright colors. From the thumbnail, it looked floral to me so that’s the direction I went.

Instead of embossing resist, I did the reverse on my background. I sponged on the Distress inks, dried it w/ a heat gun then used my embossing buddy over to make sure it was really dry. (It probably would have been easier to emboss, then sponge, but sometimes it’s hard to get all of ink off of the embossing & I wanted it to be really crisp & white.) Then the azaleas were white embossed on top. The white front was die cut twice w/ a stitched curve die to make the split thru the center. After adding the greeting, I die cut some tiny flowers out of leftover background pieces & attached them.

Here’s a look at the inside. The azalea image is a 2 part stamp & while I only used the outline on the front, I used both here on the inside. There’s also a matching die for it, if you’re interested. 

Thanks so much for stopping by!
