A big Congrats to Mayapple, the newest Featured Stamper (FS452) on Splitcoast! She has a really cute gallery & I chose THIS to case. I kept the basic layout & green/white combo, but I also added some holly, did a little into the window w/ the reindeer & made mine a Christmas card.
I used the matting basics dies to first cut the large white panel, stamped & colored the reindeer & North Pole, then did the into the window to cut out the inside w/ a smaller die. I cut the inside down even smaller, stamped the greeting, then added light blue snowflakes to both white panels. A larger green layer was added behind & the fussy cut holly added in the corner. A stitched rectangle die was cut into the card front to add the stitched frame.
These are the Copics I used.

For today’s Ways to Use It Challenge (WT551), use greenery, and Hope You Can Cling To (HYCCT1501C), split the difference (have greeting split the image).
The top image on my card actually comes this way…with the greeting splitting the greenery & I added the ornament under it. After placing the greeting image in my Misti, I stamped it w/ Memento, colored with Copics, over stamped w/ Versafine, then die cut w/ a pierced rectangle die. I didn’t want the piercing to include the band where the actual greeting is, so after using the outside die on the entire panel, I added the piercing die but only placed the upper cutting plate as far as the lower greeting band & applied pressure. I turned the image around & placed the upper cutting plate only as far as the top band. I like how it almost looks like a separate band, but it’s all one piece. The ornament was stamped the same way as the greeting, but I masked it & stamped the big starburst inside before coloring & over stamping. It was fussy cut & added to the panel.
These are the Copics I used.
Thanks so much for stopping by! Please be sure to check out the DRS Thursday Challenge …Heavy Metal (use something metallic). DRS images are not required & there’s a nice prize up for grabs.

A big Congrats to Myrna, the newest Featured Stamper (FS411)!What a wonderful gallery she has! After much browsing, I chose THIS to case. I kept the winter theme w/ the little house, but I used different images, different colors, made my scene cover the whole front, and used a different die cut topper.
After stamping the silhouette couple, trees and cabin, I extended the snow lines a bit with a Micron pen then colored in the cabin, masked off the snow and sponged in the pink & blue for the sky. I colored in the cabin and added some stickles for the sparkle on the snow. After I die cut the blue frame, I added a black die cut curved border for the top and used some left over narrow black strips to “edge” the inside of the blue frame. The finished card is 5.50 x 4.25 and these are the Copics I used.
