Posts Tagged ‘into the window’

A big congrats to Patricia, the newest Featured Stamper (FS674) on Splitcoast! And a big welcome to Nancy, our newest Featured Stamper hostess! After much browsing, I chose THIS card to case. I love the bright flowers w/ the black & white so I kept that. I used different images & dies, & instead of the patterned paper, I used a stenciled panel & stamped the greeting on it. 

After coloring the brushed flower, I used my into the window technique to die cut an oval to the left side of it. Added a black frame inside the oval & stamped the greeting on a green stenciled bg. On the stenciled bg, I used a Kaleidacolor greens rainbow ink pad to sponge thru the stencil. It was actually something I didn’t use for another project & decided I liked how it looked inside the oval. A few sequins were added for a little sparkle.

Here are the Copics I used on the flower:

A big congrats to Jennifer, the newest Featured Stamper! She has a wonderful, fun gallery & I chose THIS to case. I kept the cat theme but used different images, different dies & made mine a birthday card.

The first time I saw this greeting, it cracked me up so I had to figure out a way to use it. When I saw Jennifer’s bunch of cats, it all came together for me. After I stamped the lady, I drew a cat ears headband on her & added a mask. I did a little into the window on the right side of her in order to make a frame. The group of cats were stamped & die cut w/ their matching die & added inside the window. Then I split the greeting in two & added it on the frame.

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

My card was pretty quick. I have a substantial stack of backgrounds made over the last few years & sometimes I go thru them when I’m making a card. The times when I would get stuck for an idea, I would just make backgrounds & file them away. Or when I’m trying out a technique, especially if it’s messy, I’ll make a bunch in different colors or designs. So this is one of those bgs. It’s on glossy paper & it uses alcohol inks. I like the flowing colors & thought it looked good behind this wonderful barn scene.
After I positioned the image in my Misti, I stamped it (minus the windmill) onto the bg. First time, it didn’t work because I used Memento ink. That ink wiped right off of the glossy bg. So I did it again using Ancient Page. That’s my go to ink for glossy surfaces when I don’t really want to use Stazon. I stamped just the windmill on the right of the white frame & did a little into the window on the left of the windmill & die cut the oval center. Added the greeting & a black layer & done!

Here’s the inside. I left it blank except for the barn image which is light enough to stamp or write over. I’ll probably send this to my hubby’s brother who is in the middle of building a barn. 

Please be sure to comment on all the blogs..it is much appreciated & also increases your chances of winning!
