It’s my turn to host the Featured Stamper Challenge on Splitcoast (FS563) so a big Congrats to Helen, the newest Featured Stamper! She has a really sweet gallery & I chose THIS to case. I really liked the color combo & mixed media look of the background so I kept those, but I used different images, a different layout & made mine a Christmas card.

To make my card, The strip in the middle is actually part of a large tag I made w/ Distress inks & a little platinum Brilliance for some sparkle. The aqua & lime sparkle layers were die cut w/ curved dies & the largest lime sparkle was embossed on both ends. Though the small manger image was meant to be a postage frame, I wanted to use it on my card so I added the large star from the wisemen image in the center of the postage frame. For the rest of the wisemen, I stamped them on the aqua layer & added some white Prismacolor pencil highlights.

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


Supplies:

Stamps: DRS Designs – Jesus Heart Postage, Three Wisemen, (inside: Simplify Christmas Greeting)
Paper: X-Press It white, lime sparkle, aqua, manilla tag
Ink: Memento tuxedo black, Versafine onyx, Distress inks in twisted citron, tumbled glass, peacock feathers, evergreen bough, Brilliance platinum planet
Accessories:  Copic markers, Spellbinders rectangles, curved borders dies, Sizzix embossing folder (Snowflakes & Flourish set), white Prismacolor pencil

And since it’s almost Thanksgiving, I also cased THIS card of Helen’s. I kept most of the layout, but used different colors, different images & turned mine horizontal.

This card was pretty quick & easy. I had a Wrinkle Free Distress background I made a while back that I stamped the leaves onto & fussy cut. The white rectangle with cut out hole was leftover from another project so I added the brown & gold layers then the greeting on a little word window tag.

Supplies:

Stamps: DRS Designs –  Open Leaf, Fall Leaf w/ Acorn, Happy Thanksgiving
Paper: Staples 110# white, watercolor, brown textured, harvest gold
Ink: Versafine vintage sepia,  Distress inks rusty hinge, mustard seed, spiced marmalade
Accessories:  Spellbinder A2 matting basics A & B dies, Quickutz nesting ovals, sequins

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!

It’s my turn to host the Splitcoaststampers Featured Stamper Challenge (FS560)! A big congrats to Jennie, the newest Featured Stamper! She has a big, beautiful gallery & after much browsing, I settled on THIS to case. I kept the pumpkin & Thanksgiving theme but used different images, a little different layout & only a strip of dry embossing instead of a full bg.
For my gold pumpkin card today, I gold embossed this lovely Filigree Pumpkin onto ivory c/s then die cut it & added a gold pierced circle layer behind it. The square panel behind them is a small bg I made w/ Distress oxide inks & stamped over it w/ gold ink using the Splatter Bg.  The larger ivory layer has the greeting gold embossed & I also added a little gold embossing all around the edges. The long rust color strip was a leftover that I dry embossed w/ an embossing folder.

Here’s a look at the inside.
