It’s my pleasure to host the Splitcoast Featured Stamper Challenge (FS711) this week & a big congrats to Patti! She has a lovely gallery & I chose THIS card to case. I kept the fall them & multi colors, but I used different images & instead of emboss resist, I black embossed onto a shaving cream bg.

For my card, I used a shaving cream bg I made a while back & I thought the colors would be perfect for a fall card. I die cut it then put it into my Misti & stamped this wonderful, new veined leaves bg in black & black embossed it on top. I love the bit of shine & deep black the embossing gives to the image. It’s backed w/ a black, inside scallop die cut panel & I used a smaller white one to stamp the greeting on. I wanted it to stand out a bit more, so I used a couple of rectangle dies to cut a narrow black frame to put around the greeting.


Thanks so much for stopping by!

For the Splitcoast Inspiration Challenge (IC772), we’re headed to Soft Surroundings. They have a lot of really lovely items & for my card I was inspired by the colors in THIS dress.

I did some slightly tricky die cutting for the angled topper & since I’ve had questions about my resizing technique w/ dies, I took some extra pics to help explain it. The angled die I used on the edge is actually sized for an A2 card so I had to partially die cut the Fall Slimline image w/ the next largest size stitched slimline die. Then I had to cut the lower edge & extend the shorter length of the border die. This is how I did the first cut. (Click on any pic to make it larger)

You’ll see I only cut the top 3/4 of the die, not cutting the lower 1/4 at all.

I used the actual angled die & a ruler to extend the line where I want to cut. A red pencil was used to make it visible here.

I used the smaller top plate to make first cut.

You can see the first cut more clearly here. Only the right side is cut.

Now I line up the die along the remaining left side making sure to line up the stitch lines on the die.

Now it’s flipped back over & ready to cut.

All finished. Just have to erase the pencil & color it in.

You may notice that my colored in panel looks longer on the left than it did when I was cutting it. After I finished coloring & started to assemble my card, I realized it looked better a little longer, so I cut a bit more of the leftover, then stamped the acorn again & fussy cut it. This bg is so busy that w/ the acorn on top, you can’t even see where the cut was. I added a narrow white cut border under it, then attached it to my blue bg.
Here are the Copics I used.

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.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
