A big Congrats to Cathie, the newest Featured Stamper on Splitcoast (FS561)! She has a beautiful, growing little gallery & I chose THIS to case. I kept the Thanksgiving theme & used similar colors, but I used a different layout, different images & used embossing resist as my technique.

My card is pretty quick & easy.  I started by stamping & embossing the two leaves in white across mostly the top & left side. I had to do just a little masking. Then I sponged on Distress oxide & regular inks & blended them toward the bottom. After die cutting, I turned the thin layer upside down & put it back then stamped the greeting w/ the Versafine. A single embossed, sponged & fussy cut leaf was added on top.

Here’s a look at the inside.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a great weekend!

To make my Christmas card, I started by making a brayered background using just the pink, purple & blue part of a Kaleidacolor rainbow pad.  The Bethlehem image was placed into my Misti & stamped several times (to get good coverage) onto the background. Since the image has a deckled look to the edges, I die cut it and the white frame layer inside using some long deckled rectangle dies. A larger black layer was attached behind then I attached the Leftover rainbow layer behind the black. The Noel was die cut once in black & once in white & stacked.

Here’s a look at the inside.

Isn’t this Kites Reverse die wonderful? I love that it’s all one piece & does the partial swirls as well. I die cut it into the Recollections heavy wt c/s…although it says it’s 110# it’s way heavier than the other 110# c/s. I wanted to be able to pull up the swirls slightly w/o worrying about it bending or tearing. I had a watercolor bg I made ages ago w/ blues & greens & a little iridescent medium (very sparkly IRL) & I loved the colors but wasn’t crazy about the overall look of it. So just using bits & pieces behind the kites was the perfect solution. I backed it w/ a very fine, smooth glitter c/s & let it show thru around the edges & under the kite tails. All that was left was to stamp the greeting & add a few sequins. 

Here’s a look at the inside using a few leftover glitter kite parts.
