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 Challenge (F4A368) on Splitcoast wants us to use a food or a food related image/theme. So I’m going w/ a tasty cupcake!

The cupcake was stamped & colored, then I used parts of 2 greetings and die cut the word “wish” twice & stacked it. After lining it up on the cupcake, I matched the colors & lines so it would blend in. A single candle was fussy cut & I made a small slit to insert it. A dry embossed dk red panel, some stickles & sequins were added to finish.

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

Today’s Color Challenge (CC621) is black, white & red all over..w/ the dessert option of making a Valentine or Anniversary card. These are probably my favorite colors for a Valentine and I thought they would be perfect for this idea I had of having a city silhouette inside a large heart opening.
I kind of surprised myself..no stamping & no coloring! Just a whole bunch of die cuts. The city scene was cut out of black & die cut the silhouette behind it once out of white & then again out of the red. The red version was offset to add a little space between it & the bg paper. A white glitter moon was added along w/ a little heart on a stem as sort of a balloon floating out of one of the windows. 
The squiggly line was die cut to act as the “heartbeat” w/ a double stacked Love & another little heart. 

Here’s a look at the inside. Except for the 2 little heart flowers, it was computer printed. 

Thanks so much for stopping by!
