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!

Today’s CAS Challenge (CAS537) is all about June weddings. So I have a really quick wedding card.

The wedding couple, greeting, & candles in the corner were all white embossed on turquoise felt card stock. It’s not really made of felt, but it has that same textural look to it. It’s backed w/ a WFD (wrinkle free distress) background I made w/ Distress oxide inks. the flourish across the top was cut out of the same paper & I added a few pearls on it.

Here’s the inside. I flipped over the negative of the die cut for the front & used it as a stencil on the inside.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Congrats to Wanda, the newest Featured Stamper (FS644)! I’ve long been a fan of Wanda’s & I probably could have cased her all week long. I was inspired by THIS card for my fishy birthday card. I kept the layout & underwater theme, but used different images, different colors & added a couple of layers.

After stamping, coloring & fussy cutting all the fish, I dug thru my pile of backgrounds & came up w/ this shaving cream bg. I wanted something w/ some watery colors but not so intense or busy that it detracted from the little fish. For those stripes on the little angel fish I had to use a yellow gel pen to get inside the lines. I added some bubbles & a piece of striped washi tape. Then came the hunt for a greeting. Turns out the one I used was just about perfect. I inked up the top & bottom lines, then used a narrow piece of scotch tape to cover the original A (in Fantastic), stamped, then reversed the process w/ the tape & stamped an I in the A’s place. Some of those clear acrylic doohickies (forgot the name, lol) finished it off.

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