The colors for the Color Challenge today on Splitcoast (CC743) are coral, olive & mint. I needed another Father’s Day card & I thought these colors would work for Ralph the Golfer & his plaid ugly pants.

After coloring & die cutting Ralph, I die cut the scene behind him then used a watercolor stamp inked w/ the Distress inks to stamp the sky behind the trees. 

Here’s the inside (it was computer generated) & below it are the Copics I used for Ralph.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Congrats to Cheryl, the newest Featured Stamper (FS640) on Splitcoast! She’s an avid scrapper & I admit, I know next to nothing about scrapping. Sooooo, I picked her Father’s Day layout to case. I kept the Father’s Day theme & used a frame collage that reminded me of a scrapbook layout. I used different images, colors & made mine a card.

This collection of frames gave me a lot of options to use a bunch of images or partial images & fill it in. Rather than mask the frames & stamp inside, I chose to cut out the centers of the frames. I knew I wanted the golfer kind of in & out of the frame so it was easier to do this by cutting out the insides of the frames. After coloring all the images, I arranged them inside the frames & stamped the greeting underneath. I had to cut around parts of  the golfer to fit him inside & outside the frame. 

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

Fun challenge on Splitcoast today! Make your own backgrounds (F4A85)!

The weekend is almost here and some of you are probably planning on a friendly golf game. The only golf I’ve ever played is miniature, but there are a lot of golfers in my family. So I think this would be the perfect masculine birthday card for one of them. All except my aunt Mary, that it is, lol. She LOVES to play golf. You could use it for other occasions, but I used the Above Par Birthday Greeting on the inside.

This golfer reminds me a little of my husband. A long time ago, in a city far, far way,  we lived in a partially finished subdivision and he was out in front practicing his swing. He used to hit balls across the several unfinished streets and pay neighbor kids to shag the balls. So he’s out there one day and my daughter and I are on the couch in the living room. All of a sudden, there is a big CRASH, my glasses fly off my face and this golf ball lands about 3 inches in front of the tv. I wish I had a picture of the look on his face. When he shanked that ball, it hit the curb across the street and bounced back through the front window of our house. I guess if he had hit it any harder, he’d have hit two birds w/ one ball. Me and the tv, lol.

All images are DRS Designs. For my self made backgrounds, I used a little stack of pigment inks that comes in coordinating colors to stamp the Golf word repeatedly. I also used it to make the narrow woven plaid strip. Golfer Duff was colored with markers and given a little out of the box treatment.The finished card is 4.25 x 5.5.

Thanks so much for looking!
