Posts Tagged ‘out of the box’

We have a lovely site for the Splitcoast Inspiration Challenge (IC689) this week. And I was really taken with the items on THIS page. I really like the almost magical colors.

To make my fantasy scene, I stamped the different toadstools, masking a little here & there, then colored them. I did my out of the box along the top and added the panel w/ the colored tree slice behind it. The extra toadstool & little frog were fussy cut & added.  I thought a couple of dragonflies would fit in so I added those, as well.

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

Thanks so much for stopping by!

I made this for the Splitcoaststampers Fan Club October Christmas Challenge! I’ve been having so much fun being a part of the challenge this year & the bonus is I’ll have a bunch of Christmas cards finished in plenty of time for Christmas this year. You’ll need to be Fan Club member but that’s easy…just click the blue link to find out how. 

For my Christmas card, I stamped & white embossed the Snowflake Package. I used a reverse mask around it then sponged on the tumbled glass & peacock feathers inks. A lipstick orange Copic was used to carefully fill in the bow & ribbon then I added a little Wink of Stella on top of the red. When I die cut it I did a little out of the box to keep the bow intact.


The large background is also emboss resist & I used some of the many snowflake images from the large bg stamp. I just cut the lg image apart so I could use the ones I wanted more easily. Only the first part of the greeting was used below the present so I put the rest on the inside.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

This is also for the Featured Stamper (FS607) & I chose THIS to case.

For my CAS card, I stamped & colored the cute pumpkins then I used 2 colors of glittery embossing powder just on the tops..sort of a frost on the pumpkins look. I used my out of the box die cutting technique to keep the little flourishes intact. I also added a pair of embossed & fussy cut leaves to the orange pumpkin. On the wheat image, I stamped it w/ the acorn ink & embossed w/ the same powder I used on the orange pumpkin. I also swiped around the edge of the panel w/ the ink & embossed it, as well. The Autumn word was die cut in rust & lt blue & before stacking them, I inked & embossed just the top half of the rust colored one. 

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