It’s my pleasure to host this week & a big congrats to Crystal, the newest Featured Stamper (FS615)! She has a big, beautiful gallery & there were many I wanted to case, but I kept coming back to THIS. I kept pretty much everything..the layout, the Christmas theme..but I used different images & made my own backgrounds (except for the music oval).

After stamping & fussy cutting the bells, I stamped different Christmas words in cranberry onto the red layer & holly & snowflakes on the green w/ the oxide ink. The gold star was ciimped after die cutting & I added part of an oval of music behind the bells. I also added some looped gold thread behind the bells.

Here’s a look at the inside.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

A very fashionable site Stacy chose for the Inspiration Challenge (IC676). I had a hard time picking just one. But I kept coming back to THIS dress w/ the red top & splatter of red on the skirt. To me it looked like it looked perfect for a Christmas card.

For my fairly simple card, I die cut the white front & red topper then used an angled border die to cut off the bottom of the red piece. I stamped the white part w/ different size snowflakes & also a little splatter using the candy apple oxide ink. On the red topper, I stamped the same images w/ Versamark but didn’t think they showed up very well so I stamped a few of them w/ the frost white pigment ink. The greeting was added along w/ a single ornament then some sheer ribbon & some glitter white & red snowflakes.

Here’s a look at the inside.

I made this for today’s Color Challenge (CC713) on Splitcoast. I admit, I was a little hesitant about the colors..probably because I tend to stick to 2 or 3 colors & also because these seem like such summer colors to me. And I’m mostly working on Christmas cards now & these colors screamed floral instead of Christmas.  So I decided to embrace the berry color and all the others were used in very small doses. And I needed a baby girl card so I thought I could work it w/ these colors.

I stamped, colored & die cut the image & also a couple of layers behind it. The berry & polka dot berry (I don’t have the actual colors but I do have a small sample & this was as close as I could come 🙂 were die cut then I used a border die on the top berry layer & a very narrow white layer underneath it. After adding the star die cut down the side, I added a little stickles to the stars on the image.

Here’s a look at the inside…I was rushed to get this posted & didn’t have time to add an inside greeting. I’ll get it on there before I mail it  😉
