SW Birthday by Julie Warner

This is for the Splitcoast Inspiration Challenge (IC654) & Stacy chose the Vera Bradley site. Lovely colors & patterns there! I was inspired by THIS tote. I just love the colors & Southwest pattern.
  SW Birthday by Julie Warner
To make my SW background, I applied Distress oxide inks to the inside of the embossing folder (Embossing Folder Stamping) then placed my die cut piece of white card stock inside. I actually used what would normally be the back side because I wanted just the lines & not the inside of the pattern. Leaving the c/s just where it was, I added a little more ink here & there where needed. When satisfied, I went ahead & ran it thru the Big Shot to emboss it because I also wanted the texture. The big Happy was die cut then stamped & double stacked on another white piece to give it some depth. The coral pieces were leftovers that seemed to fit in.

Here’s a look at the inside.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

This was made for Lydia’s Dare To Get Dirty challenge on Splitcoast & we’d love for you to join in so for all the details go to the Dare to Get Dirty Forum ..but you’ll need to be a Fan Club member. It’s sooooo easy! You still have a little time to enter the challenges, but this is last challenge on the last day of DTGD16.

This card looks simple, but it was off the charts aggravating! I was having one of THOSE days. I dropped or lost most everything I touched. And for the life of me, I can’t figure out why my supplies want to hide. When I drop them in the middle of the floor, they will scoot or shoot half way across a room to get under a piece of furniture like they’re sliding into home! And this requires getting down on my knees w/ a flashlight & long stick (yes I have one just for this purpose) to retrieve them. Dies are the worst..they are the same color as the hardwood floor..& they require the magnet extension on my screwdriver. I had to carry around so many retrieval tools, I felt like a vacuum cleaner w/ full attachments.

Anyway, the scene was stamped across the blank spot in an Embossing Folder Stamped piece. I didn’t like the way the stamped embossing folder piece turned out so the white topper covered it all up, lol. I also stamped the scene on the white then added a little mitre cornered frame around it. The black zigzag was die cut, the greeting & sequins added.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

For my Create card, I started w/ a splat embossing folder, inked it w/ the different colors of distress inks, spritzed it w/ a little water, then placed my piece of white card stock inside & pressed. It wasn’t’s still flat. (There’s a tutorial for this showing how to do it w/ daubers, but ink pads work great, too.) I wanted just a bit more of the raspberry color, so I used the Ink Spots image to add some here & there. I placed a couple of frames on top of it & added my stacked Create die cut on top. The Mug of Art was stamped, colored w/ Copics & fussy cut along w/ the paintbrush. A few sequins were added for a little sparkle.

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