Posts Tagged ‘Sponging’


Welcome to March!  And it’s time for the Splitcoaststampers Fan Club March  Christmas Challenge! We have a year of new 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. Hint..I’m really loving the new theme for this year.

For my card, I die cut the wonderful deer in the circle out of cobalt blue & again out of white & stacked them a little offset. I die cut a larger circle & sponged the color onto it, then placed it behind the deer. The lg white background was stamped  w/ the snowflake frame in the blueberry ink & heat embossed w/ a sparkly, transparent powder. The greeting was embossed in white onto the narrow cobalt strip.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

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.

It’s my honor to host the Splitcoast Featured Stamper Challenge (FS733) so a big congrats to Dawn, the newest FS! She has such a fab gallery & after a lot of browsing, I chose THIS card to case. I kept the Easter theme w/ bunnies & eggs, but I used different images & dies, stamped bunnies instead of die cut & changed the layout a bit.

For my little Easter card, after stamping & die cutting the little bunnies, I stamped & colored in some grass for them to sit on, on the top panel. I die cut a lg oval out of it & attached it on top of a sponged bg w/ the Easter eggs stamped on top. Prismacolor pencils were used to add a little extra color, then I thought it looked too bright, so I covered it w/ a piece of vellum before attaching it under the oval. A stitched oval frame was added over the opening after the greeting strip was added but before the bunnies were attached. 

Here are the Copics I used for the bunnies.(the chicks are another set, but I used all the same Copics for both sets, so that’s why they’re in the pic)

Thanks so much for stopping by!
