For the Inspiration Challenge we’re headed across the pond to a lovely site. I chose THIS for my inspiration.

My card today took way longer that I planned on spending but that’s how it goes sometimes. I wanted a twig wreath w/ stars on it but I wanted them to be a silver/gold mix & look a little rustic. The stars were pretty easy. I die cut them then covered them w/ a mix of silver ink on the inside & gold ink around the edges then sprinkled on 2 different embossing powders. One is a gilded gold (mostly clear w/ gold flecks) & the other was a stardust powder (mostly clear w/ little sparkles & a hint of silver). I did the same for the grosgrain ribbon die & bow die cut. On the wreath, I die cut it out of brown then used the same gold ep just in places here & there. Then part that took too long happened because I thought w/ the open area in the center, why not make it a shaker? But the sequins looked too bright & shiny. So I did the embossing again on a piece of ivory & die cut the sequins using a sequin die. Big trouble! Most the embossing flaked right off. So….I had piece sticker paper w/ most of the stickers gone & just the borders left. I peeled it off & stuck my sequins to the sticky side & embossed them again. That worked. I should have thought of that first! Then I put it all together & stamped half of the greeting on the front w/ Versa Clair nocturne & sprinkle the gilded gold powder on it & embossed it. You can see it in the close up but head on, it just looks black.

Here’s the inside.

The Color Challenge on Splitcoast (CC745) is red, white & blue w/ a dessert option of Patriotic. Since it’s almost the 4th of July, it sounded perfect. 

My card is pretty simple..I colored & fussy cut the patriotic heart & blue layer behind it. Stamped the greeting on the die cut white front. I also die cut the band of stars down the left & replaced the outline w/ a blue one.

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

It’s my turn & my pleasure to host the Splitcoast Featured Stamper Challenge this week! So a big congrats to Catherine, the newest Featured Stamper. She has a lovely, fun gallery & I saw many I wanted to case..but I finally chose THIS. (I actually saw a lot of cards w/ stars!) I love the stars, so I kept those, but used a die instead of a stamp for the stars, used different colors & made mine a graduation card.

My card is pretty CAS, I had a bg…actually a lg white envelope that I kept under my card stock when I was sponging, spraying & what not, & it looked so pretty & glittery, I saved it. I die cut the Stars out of the front & added the bg behind it. I put the white outline back in place & used a silver Wink of Stella on some. It was really surprising to me how much sparkle it added in comparison to the clear I used on the capital letters of the greeting & a couple of the other white star frames. I added some diplomas & mortarboards in the left corner.

Here’s the inside.
