The Prize – One $20 gift code will go to one random commenter from the blogs. So be sure  to visit all the blogs because you don’t know which one the winner will be drawn from. You have through Sunday Jan 21 to leave comments on the blogs for a chance to win. Mary will announce a winner on Jan 22 on her Blog. On the first & third Wednesdays of every month, we’ll be celebrating with a Blog Hop! The Special is the Floral Alphabet stamps – 50% off!

Aren’t these birds adorable? I love the stitch lines & patterns on them. While I was unpacking some crafty stuff (after our recent move), I came across some backgrounds I made ages ago. I used a portion of the blue/green wax paper resist Cuttlebug bg on this card. To me, it looked similar to the Floral Cuts Bg die, so I thought they’d work well together. I colored the little birds using colors from the bg piece, then fussy cut them. The Hello die was cut once out of white & once out of teal & stacked, a little offset.

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

Next stop is Vickie’s Blog!  Please be sure to comment on all the DT Blogs..it will be so appreciated & also increase your chances of winning!

A big congrats to Lisa, the newest Featured Stamper (FS571) on Splitcoaststampers! She has a lovely little gallery & I chose THIS to case. I kept the circle for the central image, but turned mine vertical, left off the divided panel & made mine a sympathy card.

To make my sympathy card, I used a large circle as a reverse mask, a smaller circle as a mask for the moon/sun, and a straight edge piece of paper for a horizon mask then sponged the blues below & red/oranges above. I went back in w/ a white pencil & added some reflection lines then stamped the Silhouette Branch in black & highlighted them w/ a white gel pen. After adding the stitched circle frame, I stamped the greeting & one of the little corner flourishes in 3 corners. After I die cut the whole panel, I sponged on color on the little narrow layer & put it back around the white panel. 

Here’s a look at the inside.

It’s my turn to host today’s Inspirations Challenge (IC631) on Splitcoast!  I was inspired by THIS & THIS so I combined the two. 

I have a winter card using this fun, fun, fun Winter Wonder Words bg. When my unmounted stamp arrived, it still had a line across the top (from the edge of the plate) & I left it. I don’t always ink it, but I did this time. I thought it made the perfect division between the upper & lower part. I inked it w/ the stormy sky ink & stamped it multiple times, but only used the line across the top.  The Warm Wishes was stamped in the upper area w/ the majestic blue ink to make it a little more prominent than the lower bg. 

I came across a piece of royal blue c/s that I had embossed all over w/ a sparkly powder. I don’t know why I did this or when, but I thought it might look good for a big frosty snowman. After I die cut him, I left the die in place & went over some parts w/ a white marker & the others w/ a cobalt blue Copic. Then I added a die cut piece of thin foam behind him to elevate him a bit. The larger blue mittens were punched & added. A narrow strip of blue glitter paper was added down the left & some punched snowflakes here & there.

 
Here’s a look a the inside. I went over the greeting & mittens w/ a blue Wink of Stella.
