Posts Tagged ‘out of the box’


It’s my pleasure to host the Splitcoast Featured Stamper Challenge (FS737) this week, so a big congrats to Sandy! She has a wonderful gallery & after much browsing, I chose THIS card to case. I kept the floral in the oval & birthday theme, but used different stamps & dies, added a designer paper & turned the layout horizontal.

I’m using some new items..the clear stamp set & layered script You are to be released this coming week! After stamping & coloring the carnation, I used the out of the box technique & an oval die to cut it. The first part of the greeting was stamped & I masked of the rest & replaced it w/ the layered word die.

Here are the Copics I used. I went back in later & added a light shadow on the right side w/ C2 & C3 markers, so they aren’t shown below. 

Thanks so much for stopping by! I’ll get the link for the new Layered Script Word die up as soon as I get it.

For the Splitcoast Inspiration Challenge (IC797), we have a site of colorful rugs. I was inspired by THIS rug for the pretty blue poppies.

To make my card, I stamped the individual poppies, leaves & stems on the main panel then stamped a couple extra poppies. After coloring everything, I die cut the extra poppies w/ their matching dies & popped them up a bit. The main panel was die cut w/ a slimline rectangle & along w/ doing the out of the box on the outsides, I also moved the bottom of the die up & cut the panel shorter (aka resizing). I used regular stitched rectangle dies for the lime & cobalt panels, then cut them narrower to place behind the poppy panel. The greeting was die cut w/ a tag die & for this, I cut one end, turned the die around & cut the other end so both ends would be the same.

Here are the Copics I used for the poppies.

For the Inspiration Challenge, we are headed to Retro Stage, a vintage inspired clothing store. I was inspired by THIS dress. Ok..I changed the color from blues to purples & the snowflakes into hydrangea petals, but otherwise, they’re identical!

Since I had already stamped the hydrangeas together & colored them, I used my out of the box technique to die cut them. I took a few extra pics of this, & you can also click the green link to take you to the original tutorial.

First step, pick the die you want to use & determine which parts of your image will go “outside of the box” or circle, in this case. I used my craft knife to cut around those areas & lift them above the die (the stem is also cut out & on top of the die). Only the parts under the die will be cut when I run it thru the machine.

Here it is after I ran it thru the machine.

You can see, only the areas on the right which were under the die, were cut by the machine.
For the lg background, I sponged it using the purple inks, going from darker at the bottom & fading to the white on top. A little water was splattered on it to add the spots. The die cut hydrangea petals were sprinkled around & the greeting added along w/ some gems.
