Posts Tagged ‘out of the box’


Congrats to Jane, the newest Featured Stamper (FS718) on Splitcoast! Jane has a lovely gallery & I chose THIS card to case. I kept the most of the layout & the lattice element, but I used different stamps, dies & made mine a Christmas card.

For my card, I had this wreath colored quite a while ago, just waiting to be made into a card, so I die cut it, using my out of the box technique (yep.there were a lot of parts out of the box on this one!), & backed it w/ a dk green circle layer. On the lattice, I used a slimline sized die but I only cut it part way, to fill the space I had available on the stitched rectangle cut piece. I’ll let you in on a little secret…the bottom part actually went a little too far. So I glued a narrow strip behind the piece, put it back in the stitched rectangle die, & ran it thru again. The patch is invisible! So don’t despair if this happens to you. After putting it all together, I added some sequins to the lattice & backed it w/ the same dk green.

Here are the Copics I used on the wreath.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

It’s time for the Splitcoast Dare to Get Dirty Challenge, the Pandemic edition,  & I made this for my challenge. You can find all the details for the challenges HERE. You’ll need to be a Fan Club Member, so click the blue link & find out how.

For my card, I used one of my favorite floral images. It’s stamped & colored w/ Copics, then I traced the outline of a square die around the image & did a little doodling before filling in the bg w/ a black Copic. It really makes those colors on the flower pop, doesn’t it? I had to use my out of the box die cutting technique when I ran it thru the die machine to keep from cutting off the leaves & petals.

The greeting was white embossed on black & I used a stitched tag die to cut it, but only used one end. I placed the die around the greeting, cut to the midway point, then flipped the die to other side & cut to the midway point from the other direction. A piece of black & white dp was added for the bg & the main image is popped up on fun foam.

Here are the Copics I used (one of the very few times I actually used that black Copic!):

Congrats to Patty, the newest Featured Stamper (FS696) on Splitcoast! She has a beautiful gallery & after much browsing, I chose THIS card to case. I love the poppies in the circular window so I kept that. But I used different images & dies, sponged my circular opening & moved the greeting.

For my card, I used 2 different watercolor poppy images. These are 2 part images..the outline & the solid inside. I put the solid images into my Misti & stamped them several times using yellow, rose & dk red inks from the Color Fuse collections. Then the outlines were stamped on top & they were die cut. The white panel has a linen texture & after die cutting the circle, I sponged it & put it back. I arranged the poppies where I wanted them, attaching them to the stitched circle frame, trimming off the lower sections, then attached it over the circular bg. A few clear sequins & a greeting banner were added to finish.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
