It’s my pleasure to host this week & a big congrats to Crystal, the newest Featured Stamper (FS615)! She has a big, beautiful gallery & there were many I wanted to case, but I kept coming back to THIS. I kept pretty much everything..the layout, the Christmas theme..but I used different images & made my own backgrounds (except for the music oval).

After stamping & fussy cutting the bells, I stamped different Christmas words in cranberry onto the red layer & holly & snowflakes on the green w/ the oxide ink. The gold star was ciimped after die cutting & I added part of an oval of music behind the bells. I also added some looped gold thread behind the bells.

Here’s a look at the inside.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Welcome to the Nov #1 Blog Hop
 for Serendipity Stamps

You have through Sunday Nov 11 to leave comments on the blogs for a chance to win. Mary will announce a winner on Nov 12 on her Blog. On the first & third Wednesdays of every month, we’ll be celebrating with a Blog Hop! The Special this month is the Covered Bridge stamp & Merry Christmas die – 50% off! 

For my very wintry scene, I placed the image into my Misti, stamped & colored the bridge scene, then masked it & the ground area. Since the trees are basically solid lines, I didn’t worry about masking them. The right side of the sky was sponged w/ the pink Distress inks & blue on the left. Then I spritzed it w/ mixture of very thin white acrylic paint & water. I mixed it about 3 or 4 to 1, (water to paint) in a mini mister. I’ve had this mix in this mister for at least a couple of years & so far it hasn’t clogged. I just shake it well before using each time. After removing the mask,  I used a white gel pen to add snow to the trees & rocks then stamped over the image again. The vellum overlay was embossed w/ a snowflake frame folder & I fussy cut out the center before sandwiching it between the cut out card front & a stitched frame, then I attached the bridge scene underneath. I also added a few snowflakes I punched out of white glitter paper. This is also for the Splitcoast Featured Stamper Challenge (FS614) & I chose THIS to case. 

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

I made this for the Splitcoaststampers Fan Club November Christmas Challenge! I’ve been having so much fun being a part of the challenge this year & the bonus is I’ll have a bunch of Christmas cards finished in plenty of time for Christmas this year. You’ll need to be Fan Club member but that’s easy…just click the blue link to find out how. 

To make my cute little Christmas camper, I started by stamping, coloring, then masking it in order to stamp the tree on top. Originally this camper had a folding beach chair in front of it, but wiped the ink off of it before stamping, then added the fussy cut package in its place. I stamped the greeting then some snowflakes & dots in the bg then added a little stickles. I also drew the twine around the tree & added some torn, inked strips at the bottom for snow.

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