It’s my turn to host the Splitcoast Featured Stamper Challenge (FS593) so a big Congrats to Jeri, the new Featured Stamper! She has such a cute, colorful gallery & after much browsing, I chose THIS to case. I kept the layout & cars w/ arrows, but I used different images, made my car out of die cuts & used fewer layers.

I really liked Jeri’s card w/ all the arrows & cute little cars. I had an arrow bg image but no cute little cars (must remedy that!). So I made my little red bug out of circle die cuts. After playing around w/ sizes & arrangements of the circles, I finally came to this & cut out the window part to add the blue behind it. More circles for the wheels. All the arrows were colored in for the bg then the greeting added and little puffs of smoke were drawn to finish it.

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

Rusty CHristmas truck 05189
For my Christmas card today, I went with more of a masculine theme. I love this old truck image and I thought it would look good in a rusty blue color. After coloring it with Copics, I stamped and fussy cut an extra wreath to add on top. The greeting was stamped underneath and I added some dimensional sparkly snow on the ground and stickles on the wreath. 

The two patterns of designer paper are actually one double sided piece I die cut using a curved border then flipped one side over. The cobalt blue layer was embossed using a snowflake frame and I used a white chalk marker to go over the raised areas. The snowflake was stamped with the blue ink and fussy cut. The finished card is 5.50 x 4.25 and these are the Copics I used.

A big congrats to Katlyn, the newest Featured Stamper (FS385) on Splitcoast! What a wonderful gallery, full of colorful creations! I needed a masculine card so I chose THIS card to case. I kept the car theme and black background but used different images, red instead of orange and left off the ribbon. 

I recently received this image and couldn’t wait to color it. And I found out, cars are HARD to color! So many surfaces and angles for light to hit, it’s really an exercise in light direction and shiny surfaces! It took quite a while to color and a number of red Copics. I did a little of my out of the box when I die cut it, then added more die cut layers of dp, red & white. I used a nested pennant for the greeting. The finished card is 5.50 x 4.25 and these are the Copics I used.
