It’s my turn to host the Splitcoaststampers Featured Stamper Challenge (FS508) so a big congrats to Jeanne, aka Penny627! She has such a wonderful gallery & after much browsing, I chose THIS to case. I didn’t have a cute little Halloween girl, but I had a cute little Christmas girl. So I kept the basic layout & circle element, but I used different images, different colors & since there isn’t a die for this cutie, I did a complicated out of the box/into the window for her.

Sigh…I’m not gonna lie..it took me quite a while to color this lovely, then it took me longer to figure out how I was going to handle her, since she’s a bit bigger than I thought when I ordered her. To make the circle opening, after a lot of consideration, I traced around the smallest Grand circle die & used a craft knife to cut away the area around her that fell inside the circle. I used the same circle along w/ the largest of the regular circle dies to cut the silver glitter layer & put it behind her. The card started out to be 5.5″ square, but I just felt uneasy w/ it, so I cut it down to fit A2 & added just a touch of snowflake embossing on the lower corners & strips of the silver glitter on either side. It changed the look a bit, but I like the partial circle a lot better. I added a die cut Joy out of the silver glitter above the Happy Holidays that is part of the red designer paper I used to back the image.

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

It’s been a long road with many twists, turns and delays but I’m finally here. I’ve been out of town for a while so I don’t have any new cards to post yet. So, I’ll just start off with a tutorial on Watercolor Resist that I put together before I left.

Since I don’t have a new card to post just yet, I thought I’d start with the card in my header. The background of this card was made using the same watercolor technique as the Ombre Watercolor Resist technique, minus the resist part. Write the Other Way was made a few years ago and it was published in The Stamper’s Sampler in an issue that called for quotes or sayings. The stamps used were from Blockheads, Stampers Anonymous and Penny Black; the quote was computer generated onto vellum.
