I made this for the Splitcoaststampers Fan Club April 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.
I really love these Birdbrain images & I really miss From the Heart Stamps. And I’m so thankful I bought some of these digi stamps while they were still available. After I put the digital image in a word doc, I typed the greeting & printed it out on Neenah. The little holly sprig & Christmas lights were stamped using some old clear stamps from Studio G. Then I colored everything & added a little glitter to the glass rims. The background was stamped using a retired ODBD image. Distress oxide cracked pistachio was stamped onto pine green c/s so the pattern of the image is actually the lighter color.

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

Thanks so much for stopping by!

For the Inspiration site (IC643) on Splitcoast, Anne chose Signals. I spent quite a bit of time browsing, but kept coming back to THIS. I just love the colors & cute little piggies. 
To make my little piggies card, I stamped little Miss Piggy on the right & then used the mirror image technique to stamp Mr. Piggy. After coloring, I fussy cut both & made little checked outfits for both. For the background, I put the Checkerboard Bg into my Misti & stamped the bottom 2 or 3 times to get it really dark, then moved the c/s & stamped the middle section a little lighter & the top section was stamped w/o reinking. The greeting was rearranged a bit to fit between the piggy pair.

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

Such a fun Technique Challenge (TLC683) today! And such a great idea from Sabrina…to trace & doodle your stencils, or make a stencil by using a die cut. After looking thru my stencils & not liking what I had for this technique, I remembered this wonderful Umbrella Man die that I have not used. I thought all the openness of the die would lend itself to doodling.

I die cut the umbrella man out of copy paper, traced it & then added all the doodled lines. I used just a few light colors of Copics here & there then added the greeting. A couple of layers & a few raindrops & done.
Here’s a look at the inside & below it are the Copics I used.
