Congrats to Karen, the newest Featured Stamper on Splitcoast! She has a lovely little gallery & I chose THIS card to case. I liked the wreath on the brick wall, so I kept that. But I used different stamps, dies & colors & used a stencil for my brick instead of an embossing folder.

On my bg, I sponged Brilliance gold & lightning black inks thru the brick wall stencil. While the stencil was still in place, I stamped the splatter bg using the same inks to give the bricks a little texture. IRL, it’s very gold & shimmery! The wreath was stamped, colored & I used my out of the box die cutting technique & a circle die to cut it. Large script greeting fit perfectly inside the wreath & I stamped it in black first, then again in the lightning black so it has a nice shimmer, too. A gold circle layer was added & done!

Here are the Copics I used for the wreath:

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.

I made this for the Splitcoast Inspiration Challenge (IC714) & also for Joanne’s Dare to Get Dirty 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 the IC, my inspiration was THIS. 

This wreath took me quite a while to make. If I had used paper for the leaves, it would have been easier but if you always take the easy route, you probably miss all the good scenery. Anyway, that’s my story & I’m sticking to it. So what did I use for the leaves? 

Some aluminum soda type cans! These were sparkling water cans & I’m here to tell you, they don’t make these cans like they used to. They are much thinner & very easy to cut & also to die cut. I turned over the can pieces & used the aluminum colored side. After die cutting, I was going to coat them w/ paint first, but I forgot. So I used alcohol inks to colors them. They’re really bright & shiny (but also sharp!). I used a woodgrain image on the backgrounds & added a sheer copper bow to finish it.

Here’s the inside.
