Posts Tagged ‘July 4th’

It’s my pleasure to host the Splitcoast Inspiration Challenge (IC761) & as a special treat, the IC Team & the FS Team are putting on a “crossover event” & we’ll be joining forces for both challenges this weekend! For the IC Challenge, we’re headed to Color Shot &/or the Color Shot Pinterest Boards. Since it’s the 4th of July weekend, I picked THIS for my inspiration. 

To make my card, I used some Brushos & painted from both ends, letting it run & flow. I added a few splatters then die cut using a new slimline die. The fireworks dies were arranged at the top, cut & I added glitter paper behind them. All of the fireworks were die cut out of 3 colors of glitter paper, put together & added on top. I found a greeting that seemed to fit the theme & the space in the center of the fireworks & added it. 

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Supplies:

Stamps: Rubbernecker Stamps: Lift Off set  (greeting)
Paper:  Hammermill 100# white, DCWV- white glitter, red glitter, blue glitter

For the Color Challenge on Splitcoast (CC793) today, we have 2 blues & a red. Perfect colors for a Patriotic card! 

I’m using a new soldiers silhouette image. I know these will look great as a dark silhouette, but I wanted to see how they’d look if I used another (inked) image to ink them. It’s an old technique called “stamp kissing“. I used the stars & stripes border to ink the silhouettes (I put them in my Misti so I could do it more than once). I like how they turned out..as if they’re draped in the stars & stripes. I separated the greeting, above & below, & used the same inks to stamp them. The piece down the side is a piece of sticky back paper w/ red, white & blue narrow strips stuck to it. The lower section has stars stamped w/ white. Just to add a little something extra, I also punched some stars & added them to the soldiers & also a couple on the bg.

 

On the inside I stamped the stars & stripe border onto a sort of triangular piece & added it down the left side.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

The Color Challenge on Splitcoast (CC745) is red, white & blue w/ a dessert option of Patriotic. Since it’s almost the 4th of July, it sounded perfect. 

My card is pretty simple..I colored & fussy cut the patriotic heart & blue layer behind it. Stamped the greeting on the die cut white front. I also die cut the band of stars down the left & replaced the outline w/ a blue one.

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