Posts Tagged ‘Lil’ Inker’

For the Splitcoast Inspiration Challenge (IC733), we’re headed to Birch Lane. After much browsing, I chose THIS picture for my inspiration. I loved the shiny silver starfish & thought stars would be great for a New Year’s card.

Only 5 more days until Christmas! Are you ready? I will be as soon as the last few gifts I ordered arrive. Seems like there are always a few stragglers. When you order, it says ‘will ship tomorrow!’. Then a few days later, it’s still sitting there. The tracking number they email shows “carrier awaiting receipt” or something. I don’t call that ‘on it’s way’. That sounds kind of like Pre-K. Not kindergarten yet, but not nursery school. So I’m gathering it’s not really shipped yet. Bummer!

So while my packages are in Pre-K, I have a New Year’s card to share. I don’t make a lot of cards just for New Year’s..since I feel the wishes are already included in the Christmas card. But like the tags I made last week, I’m making one this year. The big greeting was silver embossed on a circle die cut. Then I made a couple of star cut outs on the white panel. Die cut smaller stars out of white & silver to have sit inside. The front & stars are elevated a bit w/ some fun foam & I added some silver cord to hang the stars. 

I saw a question on a FB group last week where someone asked if anyone still had a paper crimper & if they still use it. I said I did, so I guess I had to prove it by using it on the metallic silver band & circle.  I think you can see a little of the shine of the silver on the pic below. The last little outline star was left over after cutting the stars, so I silver embossed it & added it.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a very Merry Christmas!

I’ve fallen a little behind on my posting & here are 2 cards I made for Dare to Get Dirty Challenges & also the Inspiration & Featured Stamper Challenges. For all the details of the DTGD challenges, go HERE…but you’ll need to be a Fan Club member.  

This first one was for the Inspiration Challenge (IC662) &.THIS & THIS were my inspirations. I loved the palm trees in the first, and the colors in the second. And, I used a technique from TLC698, gel plate impressionism. Basically, you put a gel plate into your Misti, ink it up w/ Distress oxide inks, mist w/ alcohol (the rubbing kind, lol), stamp your image on top w/ dye ink, then place your card stock on top of the gel plate. So that’s what I did. The colors move around & mix a bit & the silhouette isn’t quite as sharp as it would be, but the overall look is pretty nice. After it dried, I added the seagulls & a little white highlighting on the palms. Here’s the inside.

Supplies:

Stamps: DRS Designs –  Palm Tree Line Seaside Dock Sending Sunshine (inside: Sun Shine On You )
Paper: Staples 110# white 
Ink: Distress oxide inks  peacock feathers, squeezed lemonade, worn lipstick, cracked pistachio, Memento tuxedo black 
Accessories:  Misti, Lil’ Inker stitched rectangle dies, Gelli plate, white gel pen


This card was for the Featured Stamper Challenge (FS601). I chose THIS to case. I kept the cactus in the desert theme, but I used different images, different colors & added a greeting. I also got a kick out of Beth’s description of her card.

To make my desert scene, I stamped the Cowboy Cactus, masked it, then stamped the Broken Flower Fence around it. Makes it kind of look like the cowboys are out fixing the fence & left a hat & rope on the cactus. After coloring everything, I die cut it w/ a wonky stitched rectangle then added some clouds & a sunflower for the sun rays. The greeting is part of the Western Word Square & I used a wonky circle die to cut it. Here’s the inside & next to it are the Copics I used.

A big congrats to Jill, the newest Featured Stamper (FS598) on Splitcoast! She has such a wonderful gallery & I chose THIS to case. I kept the sneakers theme but used different images, different colors & a different layout.

For my card, I put the row of chucks image into my Misti, stamped, colored then over stamped. I die cut it then put together 2 words from 2 different greetings to make my greeting. I stamped just the stars of the moon border onto opposite corners of the white bg & colored them in. Then I split the panel & added a black graph pattern paper behind it.

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