Today’s Color Challenge (CC644) on Splitcoaststampers, is red, green & white with the dessert option of making a Christmas card. Got it covered! I’m also adding this to yesterday’s CAS438 Challenge (Christmas in July). 

To make my Christmas card, I had a little piece of die cut linen card stock that fit this little berry tree perfectly, so I used it to stamp & color the image. On the larger white layer, I stamped the little flourish image all over using the greens of a Kaleidacolor ink pad then added the green layer. For the greeting, I stamped just the word Christmas by using a green marker then added the red die cut Merry. 

Here’s the inside & below it are the Copic I used.

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!

I really like the colors in today’s Color Challenge (CC622) on Splitcoast…watermelon, navy & mint. And while at first, they brought to mind flowers or summer, I thought they would also be terrific for a winter card. The dessert option was to use designer paper. Well…I made my designer paper; by stamping the winter words on the mint first using white pigment ink, then stamping them again, slightly offset in the pistachio ink. On the watermelon strip, I stamped them first w/ the coral ink, then in w/white ink.
The mittens were die cut 4 times: once in white, and again in the watermelon, mint & navy colors then paper pieced together. The white snowflake centerpiece was added w/ just one word of the greeting in navy on a leftover circle of white linen c/s. 


Here’s a look at the inside, w/ the entire greeting.
