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!

For today’s Ways to Use It Challenge (WT398), we are to use some sort of embossing! I use this distressed stripe embossing folder quite a bit…it just looks like siding or a fence or even wood grain to me.

The images are all from DRS Designs. I used the ef on the black bg after stamping the white spider web first. I added a die cut window w/ some drippy goo and a couple of cut out ghosts. Looks like they’re having a fun party in there! I added some stickles to the goo and a punched spider. The finished card is 5.50 x 4.25.

Thanks so much for looking! Be sure to check out the DRS Thursday Challenge...this week..Autumn Greetings! Just link up your creation on the challenge post and you’ll be entered to win (DRS image are not required).

Today’s Technique Lovers Challenge on Splitcoast (TLC400), is to Cut it Up! Stamp a background then cut it up. My images are all from Our Daily Bread designs. I white embossed my big background on red card stock then cut it apart. In the end, I only used 2 of the rectangles and one narrow strip. Adding the other 2 just made it look too crowded to me, so I left them off. I also white embossed the wreath and the holly element. The wreath was die cut w/ a scallop circle and I die cut 2 ornaments, leaving the dies in place and sponged and stamped inside them. Then I put it all together on my 5.50 x 4.25 card.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
