Red Christmas truck cu 08068
Best of 2015 SCS
A big congrats to Cheri, the newest Featured Stamper (FS463)! She has such colorful, vibrant gallery & I chose THIS to case. I kept the snowy winter scene & most of the layout, but I used different images, different colors and used a window instead of the snowflake border. This also uses the Sketch Challenge (SC571).
Red Christmas Truck 08067
I used a large image for my card, but I split it in two & put the top part inside the window & the truck below. Everything was colored with Copics & I had to do a little out of the box to keep from cutting off some of the branches & the front of the truck. The greeting circle was stamped, die cut & added on the upper right.

Here’s the inside & the Copics I used.

Joy Ornaments cu 07120 Today’s Free for All Challenge (F4A304) is to use just one word. Got it! Actually, I started this card a long time ago for the SC553 sketch challenge & since the parts were already colored & cut out, I just went ahead & finished it. Not a moment too soon, either. I still have a week until Christmas & I don’t want to rush into anything, lol.

After stamping & coloring the Triple Ornaments, I stamped the center & right ones again on another piece, colored & fussy cut. The blue one is elevated a little, and the red one a little bit more. The Joy  was stamped & the original image has a cute little mouse sitting in the lower crook of the J so I wiped the ink off that part & used a black Micron pen to finish off the letter. It was colored & fussy cut to add on top of the black bar. The sketch had a semi circle element above the top line, so I used a silver half circle.

I added a silver die cut strip on top of the angled red piece on the left . The finished card is 4.25 x 5.50 & here are the Copics I used.

Birthday Paints cu 08013
Weekly-Favorite
Today we are taking another look at the Our Daily Bread designs December release! Aren’t you over the moon with these beautiful images & fabulous dies? As a special treat, I’m including a little tutorial on how I did the double die cutting. The stitched circle around the horses is part of the white stitched frame. Tricky, huh? It’s actually a combination of out of the box & into the window. I will mention, I do both of these techniques on a regular basis so I don’t have a problem coloring my image first. If you’re trying this for the first time, you may want to color afterwards. That way if you have to try again, you won’t be out a lot of time & effort coloring it.
This is also for IC524 Inspiration Challenge & THIS was the button I was inspired by.

Birthday Paints 08015 After I stamped my image w/ Memento onto a 4.25 x 5.50 piece of X-Press It, I colored it w/ Copics. The horses were colored to resemble Indian Paints. I still had the image in my Misti, so I over stamped it w/ Versafine to really sharpen the details.  Now comes the Double Die Cutting how to…(click any picture to make it bigger.)

Birthday Paints cu 08013 To finish, I stamped the mill scene onto textured chocolate using the sepia ink twice then added the highlights w/ a white Prismacolor pencil. The leftover outer stitched circle frame was colored w/ a Copic & put back around the image. A punched fence was attached behind the image & the oval stitched greeting added on top. 

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