One of the Splitcoast Creative Crew challenges this month is to take a frame and repurpose it with stuff from a guy’s garage. Funny – because my garage contains cars and stamps! I decided to play along and created this framed piece using stamps from Guy Greetings and the Typeset DSP. Here are some close ups –
I sponged the squares with Crumb Cake and added some Real Red to just a few places to highlight some of the details. You can play along too using the key word CCREW0115SF
Just in case you’re celebrating National Bathtub Day tomorrow, I thought I’d share a card! The challenge is to make a card for “another” holiday in December – and I chose this one. Using the Bokeh technique, I created a bubbly background with Island Indigo, Marina Mist and Pool Party inks. The sentiment is from Amazing Birthday. To make the bubbles on the tag, I used my Stampin Mist and Dazzling Details bottles as stamps. Then, since it was out, I added Dazzling Details to some of the bubbles.
The inside sentiment was created in My Digital Studio. To play along with the Creative Crew, upload your own “holiday” card using the keyword CCREW1214HF CreativeCrew SUO. To see all the projects for this month, head over to the Splicoast Creative Crew Gallery. Hugs, Fran
One of the December Creative Crew challenges on Splitcoast is to use Project Life in any kind of project. I used the Hello December Accessory Pack, the wooden embellishments to be exact, and created some ornaments or package tie ons. The first one used the “joy” embellishment. I painted it white, sprayed it with adhesive and rolled it in Dazzling Diamonds. When that was dry I attached a fishing line down the middle of the “O” and added a snowflake from the Frosted Sequins with a rhinestone in the center. Hang it from some Lost Lagoon ribbon with a jingle bell tied to the ribbon with silver ribbon.
I also made one with “Noel.” Hope you’ll play along with Creative Crew this month. Use the keyword CCREW1214SF, CreativeCrew, SUO or SUM. Hugs, Fran
The Creative Crew challenges on Splitcoast this month start with using non-traditional colors on a Christmas card. I used Melon Mambo, Black and Tempting Turquoise – that’s non-traditional! These pups from Hot Diggity Dog have just spotted the perfect tree! The sentiment was done in My Digital Studio2. Play along using the keyword CCREW1214DF, CreativeCrew, SUO
The fourth challenge this month for the Creative Crew at Splitcoast is packaging. I chose the Decorative Window Gift Box with a wreath over the opening. The “ribbon” is a strip of card stock wrapped all the way around. I didn’t want the box to collapse so I lined the bottom with Real Red and make a punched doughnut to cover the opening on the inside.
Stamp Sets – Wondrous Wreath, Merry Stars
Card stock – Real Red, Whisper White
Ink – Old Olive, Garden Green, Real Red
Etc – Decorative Windows Gift Box, Wondrous Wreath Framelits, 2 1/2 and 1 3/4 circle punches
Can’t wait to fill this box! Hugs, Fran
This card is for the Splitcoast September Creative Crew challenge to focus on the Typeset Designer Series paper. I embossed the Very Vanilla with the Beautifully Baroque embossing folder and sponged the edges with Crumb Cake, On the Typeset panel I sponged and added my sentiment (heat embossed) and flowers from Flower Shop. Then I splattered Espresso ink on the card by tapping an aqua painter against my bone folder.
