Posts Tagged ‘out of the box’

A big congrats to Betty, the newest Featured Stamper (FS686) on Splitcoast! She has a lovely gallery & after much browsing, I chose THIS card to case. I kept most of the layout & flower theme, but used different images, dies & colors, & moved the greeting a bit.

After coloring the pretty flowers, I decided against fussy cutting them entirely & instead used my out of the box die cutting technique. A black pinstripe paper was added down the left side & I tucked in a few die cut green branches. On the greeting, I stamped it on a narrow piece then used just one scallop of  the largest pierced scallop circle die to cut the ends. A couple of black mini brads were put on the ends.

Here are the Copics I used:

A big Congrats to Monique, the newest Featured Stamper (FS680) on Splitcoast! She has a fabulous gallery & it was hard to pick, but I finally decided on THIS card to case. I kept the blue flowers theme & intricate bg cut out, but I used different images & dies & left off a few layers.

After coloring the blue daisies, I die cut them w/ a rounded stitched rectangle die. I used my out of the box die cutting technique to keep from cutting off the petals on the left side.  On the white bg, I die cut the left side w/ a circle lattice die & added just a few of the centers back in then backed it w/ navy blue. The butterfly was colored w/ the same colors & die cut w/ its matching die & I split the greeting..white embossing half on navy & stamping the rest on the white bg. I used a word window punch on the “Happy” part.

Here are the Copics I used. (I also used a few Prismacolor Pencils in similar colors on top.)

It’s my pleasure to host the Splitcoast Inspiration Challenge (IC739) this week!  We have a really fun site for all you color lovers..CRAYOLA! And since it’s Feb 1, time for the Splitcoaststampers Fan Club February Christmas Challenge. ! We have a brand new year of Christmas Challenges!  You’ll need to be Fan Club member but that’s easy…just click the blue link to find out how. Bet you’re wondering what the challenge theme is..I’d love to tell you but you’ll have to go see for yourself. 

From the Crayola Pinterest Board, I saw THIS picture & thought the floral would be perfect for my combo IC & Christmas card. After coloring this new floral bouquet image in shades of pinks & greens,  I die cut it using my out of the box technique to keep from cutting off the leaves. I liked it arranged in the corner & it also gave me room for the greeting. The center panel is up on fun foam & I added a  narrow die cut frame behind it on the large pink layer.

Here are the Copics I used & I also used a few Prismacolor Pencils to deepen the shadows:
