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.

Congrats to Carolyn, the newest Featured Stamper  (FS521) on Splitcoast! She has a wonderful gallery & I really fell for THIS one. I liked the matching border & embossing folder but since I don’t have any like that, I used a different folder, different image & made mine monochromatic instead of rainbow colors.

My winter card has a white background embossed w/ a folder that has the dots on top & snowflakes below. The folder has a blank band in between the two, but it’s covered up by my image panel. The image was stamped w/ the navy blue ink onto a stitched panel & I added just strips of the dk blue card stock on top & bottom. Only the first part of the greeting was stamped on a white circle & backed w/ a dk blue stitched circle. Just a little stickles was added on the trees for some winter sparkle.

Here’s the inside…I must apologize for how blotchy it looks. I was anxious to get it in the mail & already wrote a message inside before I took the picture. The picture suffers some from photo editing to try to blot it out, lol.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
