For the Splitcoast Ways to Use It Challenge (WT725) the theme is Going Dotty. I have a lot of little dots of Stickles so I think that will work. 

And while it’s been reeeeaaaaalllly cold here & we’ve had some ice & snow, I know all of you in the upper midwest have had a brutal time of it, so this for you!  I’m guessing the people attached to these mittens live in those areas. Sheesh! I don’t even own any mittens. I did just finish knitting myself a pair of fingerless mitts.. I figure that’s about all I’m going to need. My hands are almost always cold, but I need to use my fingers. Hence the fingerless part. To make my snowy card, I stamped the mitten part of the image once fully, then partially on each side, masking off the the greeting part. After coloring, I die cut the top edge (to resemble a hill of snow) & added the lt blue bg on which I stamped the Snow Bg w/ blue ink. I added a lime green frame to help give it some interest, added some snowflakes & a little stickles for sparkle.

Here’s a look at the inside & also the Copics I used.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Such a fashionable site for the Inspiration Challenge! After much browsing, I went w/ THIS simple green & white dress. 

After I made last week’s Stained Glass Christmas card, I had the inside of the window frame left over so that’s the part I used for this card. And I added a similar fussy cut greeting & put a piece of white glitter paper behind it. I used an embossing folder on the white layer to dress it up then added the colored & fussy cut greeting. This would also be perfect for those cards you didn’t have time to send before Christmas. Or change the inside greeting to a Thank You when sending those thanks for the presents cards.  

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

A big congrats to Melody, the newest Featured Stamper on Splitcoast! She has such a wonderful gallery & she’s such a sweet lady! I chose THIS to case. I kept the stained glass window but used different images & dies & made mine a Christmas card.

I first stamped & colored the candles at the bottom, then I dropped pools of rubbing alcohol on the top & added drops of Copic refills in blues & lavenders. I let the colors pool & mingle but kept them mostly away from the candles by not wetting that area. Then I added the arched window frame & stamped, colored & fussy cut the holly greeting oval.  Here’s a look at the inside & also the Copics I used.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
