Such wonderful fence murals we have to chose from for the Splitcoast Inspiration Challenge (IC767)! I chose THIS fence for the lovely fall colors.

I also have a couple of extra pics to show you how I did this & a little hint on how to make it easier.

Before I made this card, I made a copy paper version of it in order to work out the logistics. I die cut the 2 layers out of paper & used temporary adhesive to stick them together. Then I put this sandwich into my Misti & inked the different layers of leaf stems w/ the Color Fuse inks. Each branch was stamped twice..once w/ the top layer in place, then I removed the smaller top layer & stamped it again. To make this easy to match up the layers, I drew a small corner reference on the lower right corner below the top layer w/ a pencil. So when I put it back to stamp the next branch, I could line it up easily. The reason I stamped the bottom layer as well as the top is so I wouldn’t have any blank spots showing thru when I popped up the top layer.

These are the 2 layers broken apart. I could also see that I would have to stamp the greeting first & mask it so the last 2 stems wouldn’t overlap it.

Since I had worked it all out on a paper version, the real version went very fast & no mistakes! I added a rust layer under the top part & elevated it w/ fun foam.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Congrats to Debby, the newest Featured Stamper (FS703) on Splitcoast! She has an incredible gallery & I chose THIS card to case. I kept the three leaves w/ the gold embossing, but I used different images & dies, different colors & made mine a slimline card.

For my card, I used a piece of alcohol ink bg to stamp & gold emboss my 3 leaves, then die cut them. The card front was die cut & I added a brushed gold layer behind it & a slightly smaller circle die to cut out the centers so the white would show thru. The greeting was gold embossed & I popped the leaves up a bit w/ fun foam.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

For today’s Color Challenge (CC759) on Splitcoast, the colors are mango, rose & pear. To be honest, these colors are not on my go to list & I don’t have these colors, so I came as close as I could. 

For my card, I first inked a craft sheet w/ distress oxide inks, misted then pressed my paper to it. After I dried it, the leaves were stamped, masking as I went. I pressed some mini Distress inks to a solid version of the leaf, spritzed it then stamped it inside the outline leaves. It still didn’t look right, so I used a paintbrush & some embossing ink & painted inside the leaves & clear embossed them to make them stand out a bit more. The green pear top layer was die cut & the window was cut using my resizing technique to make it longer than a std rect. The 3 little leaves are from a couple of small punches. The fall part of the greeting was stamped & the hello is a double stacked die cut.
