Don’t you love this Candy Jar? Wonderful image & so fun to color. After stamping, coloring & die cutting, I added foam layer to pop it up before attaching to the red layer. I found some peppermint paper in the right colors for the background & added the greeting on a stitched circle die cut. I colored & fussy cut some holly (from Bells w/ Holly) to go behind the circle.

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  😉

Welcome to the Nov #1 Blog Hop
 for Serendipity Stamps

The Prize – One $20 gift code will go to one random commenter from the blogs. So be sure  to visit all the blogs because you don’t know which one the winner will be drawn from. You have through Sunday Nov 11 to leave comments on the blogs for a chance to win. Mary will announce a winner on Nov 12 on her Blog. On the first & third Wednesdays of every month, we’ll be celebrating with a Blog Hop! The Special this month is the Covered Bridge stamp & Merry Christmas die – 50% off! 

For my very wintry scene, I placed the image into my Misti, stamped & colored the bridge scene, then masked it & the ground area. Since the trees are basically solid lines, I didn’t worry about masking them. The right side of the sky was sponged w/ the pink Distress inks & blue on the left. Then I spritzed it w/ mixture of very thin white acrylic paint & water. I mixed it about 3 or 4 to 1, (water to paint) in a mini mister. I’ve had this mix in this mister for at least a couple of years & so far it hasn’t clogged. I just shake it well before using each time. After removing the mask,  I used a white gel pen to add snow to the trees & rocks then stamped over the image again. The vellum overlay was embossed w/ a snowflake frame folder & I fussy cut out the center before sandwiching it between the cut out card front & a stitched frame, then I attached the bridge scene underneath. I also added a few snowflakes I punched out of white glitter paper. This is also for the Splitcoast Featured Stamper Challenge (FS614) & I chose THIS to case. 

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