Birthday Pottery cu 06117
Weekly-Favorite   Best of 2015 SCS
For today’s Color Challenge (CC525), we had a wide range of choices. I chose the far left row of colors (saffron, pistachio, sky, cantaloupe) for my card. The main reason I went with these colors was I came across a background I made a while back, using embossing folder stamping & some shine sprays (I sprayed the colors directly onto the embossing folder, then lightly pressed it to the paper).  The colors are almost exact matches, so that was that! Then I couldn’t figure out what to do with it, lol. I finally pulled out one of my favorite images, these pottery vases, colored them w/ Copics & fussy cut them.

I stamped them again on top of the background after I die cut it (no way was I going to cut out those skinny little branches), then attached them on top. An extra center vase was popped up. The greeting is combo of the actual stamp & a couple of die cut words w/ their first letters snipped off to replace the ones in the stamp. I used a stamp positioner to rearrange the rest of the greeting to fit where the die cut letters would be. A sky blue layer, some black sequins & a black Candi dot were added to finish. These are the Copics I used for the vases.

Sending Flowers cu 04347
Today’s Technique Challenge (TLC494) is all about embossed water color (it’s also a revisit of TLC168). Love water color and I thought these flower images and dies would be perfect for white embossing then water coloring.

On water color paper, I white embossed the big Flower Pops Background then used water brushes and Peerless water colors to add the color. I started out trying to use the colors from the CAS285 Challenge, but I’m not sure I can get away with calling this clean & simple…though it wasn’t complicated. For the die cut flowers & leaves, I white embossed the line versions, then painted the water colors directly on the solid versions and stamped over. I attached these to a white panel w/ a die cut border on which I stamped the greeting. The large background was attached underneath.

Just for fun, here’s the inside. Since I don’t use designer paper that often, I often either stamp or use leftover die cuts and images to add to the inside. These were leftover strips from die cutting the border. 

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Anchor 04218
For my first card, I stamped the wonderful Anchor scene, colored it with Copics then did a bit of my out of the box technique on the right side using a classic oval die. I kept the colors a little toned down to coordinate with the background paper I wanted to use. The larger black oval and wide black panel were done with the embossing folder stamping technique. I sprayed one side of an embossing folder w/ sparkly silver & gold sprays, then pressed a piece of black card stock inside. There is no texture since I didn’t emboss it…just sparkle! On the teal woodgrain patterned paper, I stamped the little anchor & compass rose with teal ink  & the fishing net background on the right side with gold ink. The two different braided ropes w/ shells were something I’ve had in stash for quite a while. The smaller one was glued around the oval and the larger one tied in a bow and added. The finished card is 5.50 x 4.25 & these are the Copics I used.

Better Flip Flops 04208
On my second card, I went with a fun tropical color combo and lots of sparkle. I had some pieces of striped paper w/ lines of sparkle already in it so I used a couple of rainbow ink pads to sponge in those colors on the stamped, die cut flip flops. I also used them to stamp the big sand dollar then stamped the greeting on top. It was die cut with one of the circle ornament dies and I used a scallop circle on the teal layer. The little teal border was die cut with an edge of a scalloped long rectangle die I used on both sides. I added a few gems and stickles in tropical colors to the flip flop straps. The finished card is 5.50 x 4.25.
