A big Congrats to Linda, the newest Featured Stamper (FS527) on Splitcoast! After strolling thru her sweet gallery, I chose THIS to case. I kept the CAS design & sponging, but used different colors, different images & made mine a Christmas card. 
I had the white piece already die cut so I used some Distress inks to sponge in some pink/reds from the upper left & some lime greens from the lower right. The pine bough was stamped a couple of times w/ a combo of the green Memento inks and the greeting was stamped w/ black. I added a narrow pine green layer & instead of using another white layer to use the embossing folder on, I embossed the front of the card. The trick w/ this is, because I only wanted the front embossed, I had to put the card front in upside down in the folder, so it needed to be a pattern that looked good going either direction. Anything else would just look upside down 🙂

I added a die cut paper bow to finish. Here’s a look at the inside. The embossed card front also gives a nice look to the top of the inside.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Today’s Free for All (F4A357) is to create a nighttime or night before card. This is definitely the Night Before…it’s night outside the window & Santa is delivering his presents. I’m also adding it to yesterday’s Ways to Use It..windows, since there is a window looking out. This is such a wonderful scene & it took me a while to color it all..then a really bad thing happened & ruined it. So I started all over. Don’t you hate it when that happens? santa-00138
Since it’s pretty much a card covering scene, I stamped just the one line over the top & added two narrow layers. Below is a a look at the inside & underneath it are the Copics I used. Yep..a whole lotta colors going on here.

A big congrats to Mary, the newest Featured Stamper (FS514)! What a big wonderful gallery she has! Since she has such a large gallery, I just picked a couple of pages at random & selected THIS from those cards. I kept the deer & trees but added some blues and rearranged the layout a bit.

After die cutting the front white panel, I made an arched frame for the window in order to have the dk blue show thru. I stamped the splatter bg in the opening w/ the white ink then added some stickles for sparkle. The light string was stamped w/ gray & lightly colored & the greeting stamped in black below it. The die cut trees were added w/ a little more stickles.

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