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 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.

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.

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

Julie Warner –

 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.
