It’s time for the Splitcoast Dare to Get Dirty Challenge, the Pandemic edition,  & I made this for my challenge. You can find all the details for the challenges HERE. You’ll need to be a Fan Club Member, so click the blue link & find out how.

For my card, I used one of my favorite floral images. It’s stamped & colored w/ Copics, then I traced the outline of a square die around the image & did a little doodling before filling in the bg w/ a black Copic. It really makes those colors on the flower pop, doesn’t it? I had to use my out of the box die cutting technique when I ran it thru the die machine to keep from cutting off the leaves & petals.

The greeting was white embossed on black & I used a stitched tag die to cut it, but only used one end. I placed the die around the greeting, cut to the midway point, then flipped the die to other side & cut to the midway point from the other direction. A piece of black & white dp was added for the bg & the main image is popped up on fun foam.

Here are the Copics I used (one of the very few times I actually used that black Copic!):

This is for Splitcoast Featured Stamper Challenge (FS707) & a big congrats to Angela! She has a fabulous gallery with so much to love there. I chose THIS card to case. I kept the opposing florals w/ a greeting in between, but I used different images, colors & dies & made mine a slimline Christmas card. I’m also including this in my friend Kittie’s Dare to Get Dirty Challenge.You can find all the details for the challenges HERE.

For my card, I stamped (masking along the way) the pinecone images & branches using the Color Fuse inks. I added the berries & a couple of them were die cut & added after the fact. I used a dot bg to add just a bit of splatter, then tucked the oval die cut greeting under one of the berry branches. After die cutting the slimline postage shape I attached it to a dk red card & added a few gems.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

For the Splitcoast Inspiration Challenge (IC768), we have Charish Pinterest Board. There is so much to see, I got lost for a while. I finally chose two…THIS & THIS. I liked the fall tree in the first, & the divided panels in the second.

I used this beautiful 2 part stamp set & some fall colors of Color Fuse inks to stamp the foliage part of the tree & black for the trunk. From the beginning, I knew I wanted to do a reflection scene, so I left plenty of room below the main image. It didn’t start out to be a slimline card, but I quickly realized it would have to be to get the reflection part in. For the reflection, I inked the trunk part of the image really well, then rolled a rubber brayer over it. I positioned the brayer below the main image & rolled it away from the main image to create the reflection. For the foliage part, I used the inks & a paintbrush to fill it in then sponged in the colors of the ground & water.

A few white highlights were added on the water then I used the stitched slimline dies to cut the image into 3 panels & backed it w/ rust.  (Check out the tutorial HERE. It works the same way, just in opposite..making the panels narrower instead of wider. Just be sure to match up the stitch lines when moving the die over.)The two leaves were stamped onto a separate piece I inked w/ more of the fall colors & die cut w/ the matching dies.
