I made this for the Splitcoaststampers Fan Club December Christmas Challenge! I’ve been having so much fun being a part of the challenge this year & the bonus is I’ll have a bunch of Christmas cards finished in plenty of time for Christmas this year. You’ll need to be Fan Club member but that’s easy…just click the blue link to find out how. Since I had a little trouble w/ this month’s theme, I was helped out by the Inspiration Challeng (IC678)  & THIS is the picture that inspired me. 

For my card, I used only the wine glass image of the set & I used a black & gray Tombow markers to ink it. I used gray on the outlines that would be behind other glasses & black on the rest to stamp them. I didn’t bother masking since they were clear glass & are supposed to show through each other. After doing this 7 times, I added a little color w/ Copics to the glasses then stamped half of the greeting above them. I die cut a circle out of the top layer, then added a circle frame over the opening. The rest of the greeting, a single wine glass & a sprig of holly were stamped on this layer. For embellishment, I added a die cut & colored holly & used some clear dimensional glitter paint around the circle frame. You can’t really see it, but I also added some Wink of Stella to the wine in the glasses & on the holly leaves & berries.

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

Such a wonderful site for this week’s Inspiration Challenge (IC675) on Splitcoast! When I saw THIS pair of socks, I knew that’s what I wanted to make. Not the actual socks, lol, but my card version. Well, I do knit & I have made socks, so that’s totally possible in the future  😛 
This card was actually pretty easy. I lined up all the sections of the sweater like die and cut them out of navy card. Then I just picked other colors of card stock to go behind it. I finished w/ a stitched frame, the greeting circle & a pair of punched mittens. I added a bit of the trim from the cut outs of the die & used a white Prismacolor pencil to go around the edges.

Here’s a look at the inside, again using leftover trim from the face plate die. |

The Clean & Simple Challenge (CAS505) is Trick or Treat! I have a really quick card. The background was in my stash, so I was already half way home.

I saw a greeting similar to this & thought hmmm..I can do that! It took a little finagling w/ the letters from a couple of word set dies, but I did it.  Before I die cut the letters, I embossed them w/ a sparkly black powder. I did the same to part of the feather & the mask. The mask is actually a large mustache punch turned upside down, lol. I cut two holes for the eyes & it became a mask. I know..as if the skull wasn’t scary enough, now he’s got a mask. The black grid bg is a leftover from TLC235 Painted Grid where I took drywall mesh, put it on a brayer, rolled it thru white paint then onto the black card stock.

Here’s a look at the inside.
