Posts Tagged ‘Embossing/Dry or Heat’

For the Inspiration Challenge (IC716) this week, we’re going to Corning Ware. I had no idea they had so many different patterns. As soon as I saw THIS bowl, I knew I had my inspiration.

The line up of cats reminded me of this fun Group of Cats image. After stamping & die cutting them, I added some pen work in red & black to make them look like the cats on the bowl. The gold frame was a leftover & when I put it around them, it looked to me like a portrait on the wall so I arranged the card around it. The cat w/ the bow tie was die cut along w/ a black shadow, slightly offset & added in front.  I had to use my Resizing Technique to make the white panel narrower than the die originally cuts. The greeting was white embossed on a triangular shape I had left from cutting some borders for another project & I liked how it looked like one side of a bow tie. Some narrow strips of striped dp were added down the sides.

These are the Copics I used. 

Thanks so much for stopping by!

It’s the last day of the Splitcoast Dare to Get Dirty Challenges & I made this to fit a couple of the challenges..Janine’s Challenge & Polly’s Challenge. For all the details go to the Dare to Get Dirty Forum..but you’ll need to be a Fan Club member (click the blue link to find out how).

This is probably one of the quickest cards I’ve made in a while. The bg & white frame were already made & had been hanging around in my stash for quite awhile. If I remember correctly, I brayered the inside of the embossing folder w/ a rainbow ink pad then embossed it. Party Pig is the only thing I had to do. Just colored & cut him out. His hat was the only thing that didn’t come out right. Let’s just say…beware of Copics w/ the wrong caps on them. People who have watched me color have asked why I’m so quick to put the caps back on when I’m using them. This is why. If I leave the caps off, I seem to always get them mixed up. Oh well! 

Here’s the inside & the Copics I used. (The green one was the culprit! Bad marker, bad marker!)

Thanks so much for stopping by!

It’s my pleasure & my turn to host the Splitcoast Inspiration Challenge (IC713)! And we’re headed off to Wool & Honey..mainly a yarn site but they also have some really cute gifts. I love to knit so this place really spoke to me. For my card, I was inspired by THIS magazine. I really love the white plants on the watercolor bg. 

Originally, I was going to mask the shape of the die cut, then watercolor the bg. But it just didn’t work out like I wanted so I went to Plan B where I watercolored the bg then added the die cuts on top. I misted the w/c paper lightly, sprinkled on 4 green & blue colors of Brushos crystals, then misted heavily. After I dried it, I stacked a white die cut slightly offset onto a matching black version to give it a little depth. The greeting was white embossed onto the black strip.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
