A big CONGRATS to Janine (aka nines), the Featured Stamper this week on Splitcoast (FS299)! What a wonderful gallery she has! I spent a long time strolling thru her gallery but kept coming back to her Read All About It card. I really liked the two color combo and text background. I kept the Christmas theme, text bg and two color combo, but I had to change the layout to fit. And I used different images, made my own background and used different colors. I had so much fun with this that I made it in 3 different colors. On two I stamped the backgrounds the same as the image and on the blue version I stamped the background in white on blue.
The main image is an oldie but goodie from Personal Stamp Exchange (PSX). I sure miss them and I adore their images. This one is such a lovely image, I elected to just stamp it in one color and add stickles for the snow instead of coloring it all in. I used a snowflake border (Recollections) and a large Tis the Season sentiment (TPC) to stamp the backgrounds on a diagonal.
Since my image was so large, I had to go horizontal and leave off a couple of the strips Janine had on her card. So mine are a little different but I think they’ll do. And this is 3 more for my Christmas card stash. Yay!
I know which color I prefer…but which color do you favor? If you can guess my fave, let me know by leaving a comment and I’ll pick a name from the correct guessers for a little BLOG CANDY! Can you say COPIC? Can you say DISTRESS INK?? Sounds pretty tasty!!
Congrats again, Janine! Enjoy your week!
Thanks so much for stopping by!

This is the first of 3 challenges I made samples for today in Splitcoast’s Dare to Get Dirty week! I made this one for Ardyth’s challenge. The scene was done w/ some masking and I used markers to color in the balloons and add a little color to the sky. I die cut the frame then brayered over it w/ a rainbow ink pad. Since the die embossed it, the ink really didn’t go into the indented part. The trees, bird and birdhouse were cut out and added on top and the sentiment was sponged with the die still in place. The finished card is 5-50 x 4.25.
Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope you have a chance to play in the Dare to Get Dirty Challenges this week. Lots of fun, inspiration, chatter and PRIZES!
