It’s my turn to host the Featured Stamper Challenge (FS529) on Splitcoast so a big congrats to Hideko Lagan, aka PapercraftBoutique! She has a really sweet gallery & I chose THIS to case. I liked the colors & the pieced strip bg so I kept that but I used different images, different dies & turned my horizontal. Hideko was brought to my attention by the very sweet Kia…thanks, Kia! 

To make my roller coaster card, after stamping & coloring the image, I used a double stitched die and my into the window technique. All of the strips in the background were die cut w/ one of the smaller sizes of the stitched long & skinny mats, then I arranged them & used scotch tape on the back to hold them together. I used a curved stitched die that closely followed the greeting curve, to cut the bottom of the strips then I attached them to the card front.  I attached a bunch of leftover pieces & strips to the back side of the framed image to give it a little lift. Some sequins were added for a little sparkle.

Here’s a look at the inside, using more strips & below it are the Copics I used to color the image.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Today’s Inspiration Challenge (IC563) is all about hats & since I chose THIS hat because I knew I had this cute Jack O’Lantern w/ a pointy hat image I could use. I’m also adding this to the WT601 Challenge to heat emboss (the greeting was).  starry-jack-09807
To begin, I stamped the Jack O’Lantern, colored w/ Copics, added a little Wink of Stella to the stars & buckle then fussy cut it. For the white panel, funny enough, but I already had it w/ the embossed greeting & the big star cut out of it. Seriously…I save everything! And more often than not, it pays off. I thought it made the perfect backdrop for Jack & the die cut stacked stars down the right when attached on top of a black layer. starry-jack-xcu-09813
The stacked stars were die cut out of black, gold glitter & coppery orange glitter card stock then paper pieced all together. In person, the coppery orange is a lot more orange but not so bright it overshadows the orange in the jack o’lantern. 
Below is the inside…I used a negative of the stacked stars as a mask & sponged the colors through it. And the Copics I used to color Jack are right underneath it.

Today’s Sketch Challenge (SC590) on Splitcoast is an easy one w/ lots of possibilities. I thought I’d use this fabulous Dresden Quilt die along w/ the poinsettias dies to get an early start on some Christmas cards.
Christmas Poinsettia Quilt 08907
I die cut the quilt 3 times..one in white, one in pine green & one in a sheet of the Cozy Quilt paper. After piecing them all together, I attached to a white base die cut w/ the Double Stitched Rectangles, then a larger pine green layer.

The poinsettia was die cut using the Peaceful Poinsettias & Merry Mosaics dies & I used a stylus to add a little shape to them before attaching in the center of my quilt. The die cut Merry was added underneath w/ the Christmas attached to a large bow & added below.

Here’s a look at the inside.
