Hello friends! I’m back again today to share a couple more cards that I’ve made for the Splitcoaststampers “Dare to Get Dirty” event! They’ve released another batch of challenge over there today! There is certainly lots of crafty fun going on lately, isn’t there?!😀
My first card was made for a challenge from the lovely Lee:
This card was so much fun to create! I’ve used only purple shades to make this entire design! I started out with a white piece of cardstock using the MFT Rolling Clouds stencil and ink blended them in with several Stampin’ Up! inks that I’ve had in my stash for quite a while now! LOL! After I was done, I spritzed it with a water bottle.
I took the awesomely spooky Trick or Treat stamp set and used some SU! Elegant Eggplant ink to stamp the witch image, bat and the sentiment at the bottom. I used my MISTI to stamp several times to darken the ink up on them.
I cut out the panel with a stitched rectangle and then cut out an additional piece of Potion Cardstock with a stitched scallop rectangle die from MFT. I layered it over an A2 sized top folding Elegant Eggplant card base.
I then took a glitter brush pen to “color in” the inside of the moon around the witch that gave a really cool shimmer look to it. I then started noticing that it was taking away some of the purple ink while doing this, which was really awesome as it made the moon glow even more! (I just had to be careful around the witch because she was stamped with regular dye purple ink and I didn’t want to blur it.)
I finished the design with some Lilac Matte Sequins that I filled with some Violet Galaxy Crystal Nuvo Drops. It’s much more sparkly in person!
My next card was made for a challenge from the lovely Kelly:
This scene was really fun to put together! I fell in the love with the little house and gnomes from the Simon Says Stamp Gnome School. I thought it would make a nice “new home” type of card. I colored them up and cut them out with the coordinating dies to arrange over my scene.
The scene started with a piece of kraft that was ran over with the SSS Petal Plate die for the texture in the background. I cut out some clouds and a border of grass with dies and inked them up with some inks for shadows. I then took this panel and cut it all out with a stitched rectangle die and mounted it over a top folding A2 sized black card base. I also took a sentiment strip from the SSS Gnome School Sentiment Strips to place over the design while arranging the images over the scene.
For the sign on top of the “home”, I used one of the sentiments made for that spot and white heat embossed it over my coloring. Hard to tell in the photo, but I’ve also covered the heart on the gnome’s hat as well as the glasses on the gnome with a glitter brush pen. I also did the same for the windows on the home.
I hope you’ve enjoyed my creations for today and I sure appreciate you stopping in to check out all of the happenings that are going on! Hope you’re able to join in some of what’s going on too! See you soon!
