For today’s Color Challenge (CC759) on Splitcoast, the colors are mango, rose & pear. To be honest, these colors are not on my go to list & I don’t have these colors, so I came as close as I could. 

For my card, I first inked a craft sheet w/ distress oxide inks, misted then pressed my paper to it. After I dried it, the leaves were stamped, masking as I went. I pressed some mini Distress inks to a solid version of the leaf, spritzed it then stamped it inside the outline leaves. It still didn’t look right, so I used a paintbrush & some embossing ink & painted inside the leaves & clear embossed them to make them stand out a bit more. The green pear top layer was die cut & the window was cut using my resizing technique to make it longer than a std rect. The 3 little leaves are from a couple of small punches. The fall part of the greeting was stamped & the hello is a double stacked die cut.

It’s my pleasure to host the Splitcoast Featured Stamper Challenge (FS658) this week, so a big congrats to Laura! After much browsing, I chose THIS card to case. I kept the layout, but flipped it & used die cuts instead of stamps on mine.

For my autumn card, I die cut all the scarecrow pieces out of different colors, added a bit of shading w/ some Prismacolor pencils & put them all together. I added a fence & some corn stalks. The greeting was stamped onto a shortened stitched pennant.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Congrats to Rebecca, the newest Featured Stamper (FS657) on Splitcoast! She has a lovely gallery & I chose THIS card to case. I kept the fall leaf theme w/ the  big central leaf, but I used different images, different colors & a different technique.

For my fall card, I started by die cutting a large leaf shape & using the negative as a mask to sponge Distress inks in the fall colors. Then I stamped the Single Fall Tree in Distress oxide ink in ground espresso. I used a water brush & more of the distress inks to add a little splatter. 

For the larger bg, I used the woodgrain bg, but not in the conventional sense. I used a technique I learned probably 15 yrs ago but I don’t see it used these days. I wanted the bg to look a little more solid, so I used a hair dryer to slightly heat a piece of fun foam then pressed it to the woodgrain bg. What I got was a solid version of the woodgrain. (See pic below.) The green block is made of fun foam & I inked it so you could see it better. This works w/ any stamp, it just looks better w/ some. I will caution you, do not use a heat gun..it’s just too hot & will melt the foam into a solid hard mess. I have an old, not very powerful hair dryer I kept just for things like this 😀 . I used my solid foam “stamp” & Distress inks in vintage photo & walnut stain for the bg.

Here’s the inside.
