It’s my turn to host the Splitcoast Inspiration Challenge (IC674) & I chose Christmas Central as the site. Christmas will be here before you know it so better get busy! I was inspired by THIS cute plate. I just love the cute penguins.

For my penguin carolers, after stamping, coloring & die cutting them, I hunted around for some paper to go behind them. Nothing looked quite right until I found this box of patterned Christmas cards. It was one of those that had different printed patterns but still blank. I bought them on clearance a long time ago & mostly just to use the card fronts & envelopes. After I die cut it & a white layer, I used a new angled border die to cut the white panel. Originally, I had the black snowflake pattern at the bottom, but decided I liked it better the other way around. The greeting was stamped on a circle along w/ some little snowflakes then I put it all together.

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

The Clean & Simple Challenge (CAS505) is Trick or Treat! I have a really quick card. The background was in my stash, so I was already half way home.

I saw a greeting similar to this & thought hmmm..I can do that! It took a little finagling w/ the letters from a couple of word set dies, but I did it.  Before I die cut the letters, I embossed them w/ a sparkly black powder. I did the same to part of the feather & the mask. The mask is actually a large mustache punch turned upside down, lol. I cut two holes for the eyes & it became a mask. I know..as if the skull wasn’t scary enough, now he’s got a mask. The black grid bg is a leftover from TLC235 Painted Grid where I took drywall mesh, put it on a brayer, rolled it thru white paint then onto the black card stock.

Here’s a look at the inside.

A big congrats to Adriana, the newest Featured Stamper (FS612) on Splitcoast! She has a really cute, fun gallery & I chose THIS to case. I kept most of the colors & coffee theme, but I used different images & dies & turned my layout vertical.

After stamping & coloring the image, I added the greeting & a little stickles to the whipped cream. The rust panel was stamped w/ the lower part of a calendar grid & a little color added randomly. Just a narrow strip of teal was added under the top layer to help tie the colors together.

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