A big Congrats to Linda, the newest Featured Stamper (FS527) on Splitcoast! After strolling thru her sweet gallery, I chose THIS to case. I kept the CAS design & sponging, but used different colors, different images & made mine a Christmas card. 
I had the white piece already die cut so I used some Distress inks to sponge in some pink/reds from the upper left & some lime greens from the lower right. The pine bough was stamped a couple of times w/ a combo of the green Memento inks and the greeting was stamped w/ black. I added a narrow pine green layer & instead of using another white layer to use the embossing folder on, I embossed the front of the card. The trick w/ this is, because I only wanted the front embossed, I had to put the card front in upside down in the folder, so it needed to be a pattern that looked good going either direction. Anything else would just look upside down 🙂

I added a die cut paper bow to finish. Here’s a look at the inside. The embossed card front also gives a nice look to the top of the inside.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Today’s Free For All Challenge (F4A368) on Splitcoast wants us to use a food or a food related image/theme. So I’m going w/ a tasty cupcake!

The cupcake was stamped & colored, then I used parts of 2 greetings and die cut the word “wish” twice & stacked it. After lining it up on the cupcake, I matched the colors & lines so it would blend in. A single candle was fussy cut & I made a small slit to insert it. A dry embossed dk red panel, some stickles & sequins were added to finish.

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

Today’s Color Challenge (CC625) (gold, white, green) & yesterday’s Clean & Simple Challenge (CAS419) (Luck of the Irish),on Splitcoast, seem destined to go together. For my easy card, I used gold & emerald embossing powders to heat emboss the Good Luck circle onto mirror gold card stock.
These were all die cut using 2 sizes of circle dies & a couple of them were layered onto a larger, fancy edge circle die cut. I also gold embossed some of the clover centers of the image onto green c/s & used a small 4 leaf clover punch to punch them out. The punch wasn’t an exact match, but it was close enough. The white frame was die cut, the greeting added & I had a piece of dry embossed green c/s left over from something & since it had clovers & shamrocks on it, I put it behind the opening.

Here’s a look at the inside.

Thanks so much for stopping by! May the luck of the Irish be with you!
