It’s my turn to host today’s Inspirations Challenge (IC631) on Splitcoast!  I was inspired by THIS & THIS so I combined the two. 

I have a winter card using this fun, fun, fun Winter Wonder Words bg. When my unmounted stamp arrived, it still had a line across the top (from the edge of the plate) & I left it. I don’t always ink it, but I did this time. I thought it made the perfect division between the upper & lower part. I inked it w/ the stormy sky ink & stamped it multiple times, but only used the line across the top.  The Warm Wishes was stamped in the upper area w/ the majestic blue ink to make it a little more prominent than the lower bg. 

I came across a piece of royal blue c/s that I had embossed all over w/ a sparkly powder. I don’t know why I did this or when, but I thought it might look good for a big frosty snowman. After I die cut him, I left the die in place & went over some parts w/ a white marker & the others w/ a cobalt blue Copic. Then I added a die cut piece of thin foam behind him to elevate him a bit. The larger blue mittens were punched & added. A narrow strip of blue glitter paper was added down the left & some punched snowflakes here & there.

 
Here’s a look a the inside. I went over the greeting & mittens w/ a blue Wink of Stella.

Since most of the country has been locked in the deep freeze, I thought this pair of Cardinals sitting on a snow covered branch would be the perfect image to use. I put them into my Misti, stamped, colored then overstamped them. They were stamped off to the left side a bit because I wanted room to add some snowflakes & I had already planned to draw a box frame around them. The cardinals were masked & the snowflakes stamped w/ the Distress ink then a layer of designer paper was added behind. 

Here’s a look at the inside…haven’t decided on a greeting yet. And below it are the Copics I used.

Today’s Inspiration Challenge (IC629) on Splitcoast is a fabulous site of Chrismtas ornaments! I was inspired by THIS. I adore Christmas ornaments & each year I try to find a new one to add to our tree. Since we were in the middle of moving, I didn’t get it done this year, but I do have a card featuring lots of colorful ornaments.
 

My card also features a couple of recycled objects…a piece of clear acetate packaging & a large green paint chip. I die cut the large piece of acetate & used an embossing folder on it. It’s backed w/ a very large green paint chip & for the header, I stamped, colored & fussy cut the ornaments & added the rectangle w/ the colored greeting on top. 

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

Thanks so much for stopping by & have a very Merry Christmas!
