Lighthouse Scene cu 08963
It’s week 3 of my Guest Designer spot on the Splitcoast Color Challenge. The colors this week are gray, lagoon & honey w/ the dessert being a masculine card. So I thought it would be a good time to make a Father’s Day card.
Lighthouse Scene 08965
I love the look of Prismacolor pencils on toned card stock..usually I’ll pick kraft but since one of the colors is gray, I used it instead. After putting the lighthouse in my Misti, I stamped it w/ Memento, colored w/ Prismas, then overstamped w/ Versafine. Actually, no black pencils were used on the lighthouse..just very dark grays, lt grays & white. I finished off the scene by adding the water & seagulls then added a white mat on top. The greeting had to be split to fit the vertical pennant.

Here’s a look at the inside. Since my dad lives a handful of states away, I thought this greeting was perfect. But since he was in the Air Force, I hope he doesn’t think I moved him to the Navy.

The colors of Prismas I used are:
PC938 White, PC1077 Colorless Blender, PC917 Sunburst Yellow, PC1060 Cool Gray 20%, PC1061 Cool Gray 30%, PC1063 Cool Gray 50%, PC1067 Cool Gray 90%, PC1088 Muted Turquoise, PC1022 Mediterranean Blue, PC1027 Peacock

Congrats to Christyne, the newest Featured Stamper (FS394) on Splitcoast! She has a super gallery with lots of beautiful creations! I chose THIS card to case. I used a similar layout & colors, but I used different images, left off the ribbons & distressing and used fewer layers.

The anchor image was stamped with the chipped sapphire, die cut, edged w/ navy marker and attached to a white layer. The lighthouse was stamped with white onto a navy panel (it’s really navy IRL, don’t know why it looks royal blue in the pic), edged w/ a white marker and attached to a larger navy panel. I stamped the little anchor on a red ticking stripe dp and die cut it along w/ the greeting using a pennant die. I added a couple of red Candi dots in the lower right to balance it a bit. 

Congrats again, Christyne! Thanks so much for looking!

Anchor 04218
For my first card, I stamped the wonderful Anchor scene, colored it with Copics then did a bit of my out of the box technique on the right side using a classic oval die. I kept the colors a little toned down to coordinate with the background paper I wanted to use. The larger black oval and wide black panel were done with the embossing folder stamping technique. I sprayed one side of an embossing folder w/ sparkly silver & gold sprays, then pressed a piece of black card stock inside. There is no texture since I didn’t emboss it…just sparkle! On the teal woodgrain patterned paper, I stamped the little anchor & compass rose with teal ink  & the fishing net background on the right side with gold ink. The two different braided ropes w/ shells were something I’ve had in stash for quite a while. The smaller one was glued around the oval and the larger one tied in a bow and added. The finished card is 5.50 x 4.25 & these are the Copics I used.

Better Flip Flops 04208
On my second card, I went with a fun tropical color combo and lots of sparkle. I had some pieces of striped paper w/ lines of sparkle already in it so I used a couple of rainbow ink pads to sponge in those colors on the stamped, die cut flip flops. I also used them to stamp the big sand dollar then stamped the greeting on top. It was die cut with one of the circle ornament dies and I used a scallop circle on the teal layer. The little teal border was die cut with an edge of a scalloped long rectangle die I used on both sides. I added a few gems and stickles in tropical colors to the flip flop straps. The finished card is 5.50 x 4.25.
