It’s my turn to host the Splitcoaststampers Inspiration Challenge (IC635) & I chose Theme Rooms for our site. Since we recently moved, I find I’m always on the look out for ideas for our new place. The pictures are also pretty inspiring for creating cards & I was inspired by THIS picture.


I had a lot of fun making this one. I used the greeting as background & stamped it over & over in white then heat embossed it in white powder. I know a lot of people will use clear ink/white or black powder or else white or black ink & clear powder, but in my experience, I get a much better, clearer result (especially when using black) if I use the same color ink & powder. Just my 2 cents…well, w/ inflation it’s probably a dollar now. 

So after it was all embossed, I sponged on inks from a Kaleidacolor rainbow ink pad called Cappuccino over most of it. Then I stamped the coffee cup on a separate piece of white & sponged it w/ the same colors. The band was done again, masking it & stamping w/ the argyle pattern then cut & attached on top. Since the greeting was all over the bg, I made a little flag w/ just the die cut letters Coffee on it.

Here’s a look at the inside.

I made this for the monthly Christmas Challenge for Fan Club members at Splitcoast & if you’re a Fan Club member, you can check out all the details HERE.


For my Christmas card, I couldn’t wait to color this wonderful image. Since I was in the middle of moving, I didn’t have a chance to make as many Christmas cards as I wanted so this challenge is perfect. After I colored Santa, I used the smallest of the Grand Labels 1 die to cut a frame out of the blue layer. I thought it needed something, so I die cut a decorative labels 1 out of black & used the largest of the Labels 1 to cut out the middle of it & make a double frame for Santa.

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

I made this for 2 Splitcoast Challenges today…the Technique (TLC675) acetate inking, and the Clean & Simple (CAS466) to have/use something clear. 

For the TLC, I used DOX (Distress oxide ink) on a piece of acetate to make the piece I used behind the window.  For the CAS (something clear) I used a portion of a window die (clear window) & put my Santa puppy on the ledge looking out. The white front was stamped w/ the snowflakes & embossed w/ the bricked folder & I added the greeting (half die cut, half stamped) & a few punched snowflakes. 

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