Posts Tagged ‘Embossing/Dry or Heat’

 Welcome to August!  And it’s time for the Splitcoaststampers Fan Club Aug Christmas Challenge! We have a year of new Christmas Challenges!  You’ll need to be Fan Club member but that’s easy…just click the blue link to find out how. Bet you’re wondering what the challenge theme is..I’d love to tell you but you’ll have to go see for yourself. I’m also combing this w/ the Inspiration Challenge (IC765) & THIS was my inspiration.

I struggled w/ this card. I had an idea in my head but this didn’t really turn out like that…isn’t that always the case? Anyway, I gold embossed the big ornament. It was so big I only used half of it. I sponged some yellow inks on it & also on a large bg. On the bg, I also sponged a little Brilliance galaxy gold to give it a nice shimmer. Then the wrapped string was heat embossed w/ clear/gold sparkle powder & I die cut out the mid section, inserted the white layer (w/ the embossed greeting) & put it back on the rest of the bg.

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!

It’s my pleasure to host the first Inspiration Challenge of June (IC757)! And such an inspiring site we have w/ Design Pool & their Pinterest Boards. THIS is the picture that inspired my card. 

I have a card today w/ most of the fish going one way & the one fish going the other. Doesn’t seem to bother him…he’s smiling! I think that’s probably me, lol. My mom always said I have a mind of my own & growing up, in order to get me to do something, she had to make me think it was my idea. Anyway, for my scene, I stamped the background fish w/ teal ink onto some turquoise paper that had been spritzed w/ a little bleach. I added just a touch of color to the fish. The main character was was stamped on white & fussy cut. I added a little stickles to him & to the stamped bubbles. The porthole was die cut (yay! I found a die that fit!). On the teal bg, I embossed it w/ a wave folder & some of it cracked, revealing the white core. So I just went w/ it & sanded off some of the high points to reveal the white. 

The greeting was split w/ half on the front & the rest inside. Below it are the Copics I used.
