Posts Tagged ‘Memorial Day’

Congrats to Joanne, the newest Featured Stamper (FS642) on Splitcoast! She has a wonderful gallery & I was inspired by THIS patriotic card. I kept the Freedom theme & flag,  but I used different stamps, different dies & changed the layout. And this Memorial Day, please take a moment to remember & give thanks to those that gave their lives to ensure our freedom. 

For my card, I stamped the patriotic wave, multiple times (to get good coverage). A Misti is really handy for solid images like this. Since the ink I used isn’t technically for use w/ Copics, I heat set it then carefully colored in the red stripe & fussy cut the top edge. I did the same for the big heart shaped flag image. The cityscape & USA were die cut & I had to link the letters because I ran out of room to stretch them out. The greeting is 2 put together & I used a corner rounder on the rectangle.

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

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Supplies:

Stamps: DRS Designs: Patriotic Heart , Stars & Stripes Border ,(both new!) Let Freedom Ring, Simplify Christmas,(inside: Star WreathInterlocking Star Bg)

Welcome to the June Our Daily Bread Designs Release Blog Hop!

 On my first card, I stamped the soldier with red ink, masked him and stamped the old flag background with stonewashed ink. A piece of vellum was over laid and the greeting was stamped using a combination of the red/iris chalk inks. I also stamped 3 stars on the vellum and a bunch of the stars on white card stock. Some plain white stars were die cut then I used a star punch to punch out the stamped stars and attach them on top of the die cut stars down the left side. The eagle was stamped w/ the denim ink and fussy cut. I die cut a white frame to attach on top of the vellum panel before everything else was attached to my 4.25 x 5.50 card.

On my second card, I stamped the old flag bg on navy card stock using white chalk ink. The eagle was stamped w/ denim ink and a few areas were colored w/ a red Copic maker before I cut him out. I die cut 2 mega ovals to place under the eagle and added a few red dots around the first oval. Two fussy cut stars were added on either side of the ovals. The navy bg was attached to a white 5.50 x 4.25 card and I stamped the little designs around the edges using the red ink.

Congrats again to Marcie, the Featured Stamper this week on Splitcoast (FS298)! This time I chose her Tree Trimming Christmas to case. I kept the Christmas tree theme, colors and big circle but changed the layout, put my tree inside my circle to make a snow globe and added some trimmings w/ the die cut holly and cut out pine cones.

The images are from Our Daily Bread designs. I really wanted a big snow globe card and when I saw Marcie’s Christmas tree card, I thought I’d try putting my tree inside the globe. The music bg was stamped w/ the sand ink and I used deckle scissors to cut it out. I die cut the snow globe out of white and again out of metallic gold. I used 2 circle dies to cut out the gold rim for my globe (I needed a way to hold the acetate down). On the white one, I stamped the tree and presents, masked them then using a stamp positioner, I stamped the music so it would line up w/ the bg…as if you’re really seeing thru the glass globe. The the greeting was added and instead of worrying w/ loose glitter, I just smeared stickles on the tree and presents. After it dried, I added the acetate and gold rim and attached it to my card. The die cut holly and cut out pine cones were added for trimmings. The finished card is 4.25 x 5.50.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
