A big congrats to Mandi, the newest Featured Stamper (FS496) on Splitcoast! She has such a lovely gallery & I chose THIS to case. I kept the layout & color combo, but used different images, different dies & made mine a summer card instead of Christmas. This is also for Kathleen’s Dare to Get Dirty Challenge. We’d love for you to join in so for all the details go to the Dare to Get Dirty Forum ..but you’ll need to be a Fan Club member. It’s sooooo easy!

To make my popsicle card, I started w/ a piece of embossing folder stamped background & used part of it for my bottom section. Instead of inking the embossing folder, I sprayed it w/ several colors of shine sprays then closed the folder on a piece of white card stock. It wasn’t embossed, so it’s still flat. I used a curved border to cut the top section. After I put the two sections together they were embossed w/ progressively smaller sizes of the set of pierced rectangles dies. Only the largest layer was actually die cut..all the smaller ones were only embossed.

The popsicle was stamped, colored w/ Copics, over stamped w/ Versafine (to bring back the details) then fussy cut. I added some Wink of Stella on it for a little sparkle. The fuchsia borders were colored w/ Copics to match because I didn’t have any card stock to match. The greeting was stamped using the lilac posies ink.

Here are the Copics I used to color everything.NCC BLue Raspberry Popsicle copics 09645
