I made this for the Splitcoaststampers Fan Club April 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.
I really love these Birdbrain images & I really miss From the Heart Stamps. And I’m so thankful I bought some of these digi stamps while they were still available. After I put the digital image in a word doc, I typed the greeting & printed it out on Neenah. The little holly sprig & Christmas lights were stamped using some old clear stamps from Studio G. Then I colored everything & added a little glitter to the glass rims. The background was stamped using a retired ODBD image. Distress oxide cracked pistachio was stamped onto pine green c/s so the pattern of the image is actually the lighter color.

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

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Today’s Color Challenge on Splitcoast (CC673) is a trio of soft colors I rarely use together..wisteria, sky & wasabi. This was the first image I had that came to mind to use w/ these. As you probably can tell from the name of the image, I left off the cheese part of the image so I wouldn’t have to worry about sneaking another color in there.

The image was stamped, masking the left side (w/ the cheese) & colored. I didn’t like the way the border looked so I die cut a double stitched frame & attached it on top. The wisteria layer & narrow frame were leftovers so I used them. I had to rearrange the greeting & leave out the “quick” part in order to fit it in.

Here are the Copics I used.

Does this image make you thirsty, lol? It’s been a 5 O’Clock kind of week around here. And I just love images w/ colorful, tasty beverages in them. After coloring them I die cut them & added some equally colorful layers of papers behind them. I thought the Relax die would fit in perfectly w/ the image.

I added some stickles here & there for a little sparkle. 

I’ve shown this on other posts, but I’m always amazed at how much sharper the image looks after over stamping w/ Versafine. Below.. left is just w/ Memento & Copics..right is after stamping again w/ Versafine (click any picture to enlarge).
