I really like the colors in today’s Color Challenge (CC622) on Splitcoast…watermelon, navy & mint. And while at first, they brought to mind flowers or summer, I thought they would also be terrific for a winter card. The dessert option was to use designer paper. Well…I made my designer paper; by stamping the winter words on the mint first using white pigment ink, then stamping them again, slightly offset in the pistachio ink. On the watermelon strip, I stamped them first w/ the coral ink, then in w/white ink.
The mittens were die cut 4 times: once in white, and again in the watermelon, mint & navy colors then paper pieced together. The white snowflake centerpiece was added w/ just one word of the greeting in navy on a leftover circle of white linen c/s. 


Here’s a look at the inside, w/ the entire greeting.

A big Congrats to Joyce Ann, the newest Featured Stamper (FS523) on Splitcoast! She has such a big, beautiful gallery & a lot of scrapbook pages! I chose THIS to case. I kept the sort of vintage humor theme & the layout but changed most everything else. Different images, different colors & different papers. I’m also adding this to the Ways to Use It Challenge (WT622), Spunky Old Broads because this trio of beach babes certainly qualify!

I stamped, colored then overstamped the babes on an already die cut white panel. After adding narrow black & turquoise layers, I found some paper that had glasses on it so I used it down the left. The greeting was tucked underneath the image panel & some die cut glasses were colored and added in the corner. This greeting just makes me chuckle…I can just hear the other two women agreeing w/ her..”Mmmhmmm..you know it, sweetie!”

Here are the Copics I used.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Today’s Free For All (F4A363) Challenge asks us to make a Valentine. My Valentine  greeting & Love Maze images are wonderful all by themselves…but I couldn’t resist putting a pink pig into the mix. Especially when it’s Cupig! I colored him a little more pinky so his colors wouldn’t clash w/ the very pinky reds I’d already used to color the other images. I’ll admit…there was a lot of fussy cutting going on here, but I really liked having a black bg & it was the only way to have the lighter images show up. 
After I die cut the black panel, I added all the fussy cut images. It’s a toss up which was harder..the teeny tiny arrow or the teeny tiny hearts. The inside of the O was tough, too. Inside curves are always hard but a little trick I figured out. If you’re going to attach it to black, just use a black marker around the inside (& outside edges) to cover any white that’s showing & it will disguise any imperfections in the cutting. By the way..there is a way thru the Love maze. I found it pretty easily but when I drew it w/ a red pen, it wasn’t very visible so I colored everything below the line. There may even be more than one way, but this is mine.

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