Today’s challenges on Splitcoast, TLC677 & CAS468 were combined for this card. The Technique was use a paper towel roll as a painting tool & the Clean & Simple was to have a bird.

So for the technique challenge, I took the cardboard center of a paper towel roll & cut a piece off then cut it up the middle & used only about half of it. After rolling this piece much tighter (for a smaller circumference) I taped it the slit the bottom as per the technique. After stamping w/ the different colors of paint, I let it dry. It wasn’t quite as pretty as I hoped it would be, so I just a section of it behind the toucan. The toucan was colored w/ Copics & die cut. 

Here are the Copics I used for the toucan.

I made this for the monthly Christmas Challenge for Fan Club members at Splitcoast & if you’re a Fan Club member, you can check out all the details HERE.


For my Christmas card, I couldn’t wait to color this wonderful image. Since I was in the middle of moving, I didn’t have a chance to make as many Christmas cards as I wanted so this challenge is perfect. After I colored Santa, I used the smallest of the Grand Labels 1 die to cut a frame out of the blue layer. I thought it needed something, so I die cut a decorative labels 1 out of black & used the largest of the Labels 1 to cut out the middle of it & make a double frame for Santa.

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

Aren’t these birds adorable? I love the stitch lines & patterns on them. While I was unpacking some crafty stuff (after our recent move), I came across some backgrounds I made ages ago. I used a portion of the blue/green wax paper resist Cuttlebug bg on this card. To me, it looked similar to the Floral Cuts Bg die, so I thought they’d work well together. I colored the little birds using colors from the bg piece, then fussy cut them. The Hello die was cut once out of white & once out of teal & stacked, a little offset.

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