It’s my turn to host the Splitcoast Inspiration Challenge (IC678) & I chose Joss & Main for the site. They have some fab Holiday decorations & ideas. I was inspired by THIS set of canapé plates. I really love the winter images & plaid.

After stamping & coloring my holiday snowman, I stamped the plaid background onto light red cardstock w/ black ink then used a few darker red Copics to add a little tone variation. I die cut both panels then used a curved border die to cut the bottom of the snowman panel. A couple of die cut buttons were added w/ a little glossy dimensional glaze added on top of them. The greeting was a little too large, so I stamped it w/ Stazon on the front of a piece of shrink plastic, die cut it w/ a circle die & most importantly, punched the hole at the top before shrinking it w/ a heat gun. I used a G02 to color the backside before I shrunk it. It was barely even noticeable but look how much darker it became when shrunk. A little Stickles was added to the snow & icicles.

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

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Such a wonderful site for the Inspiration Challenge (IC677) this week! After much browsing, I chose THIS for my inspiration. I really like the half tree in the red frame.

I stamped my tree at the edge of the white card stock, colored it then added a larger white bg & red stitched frame on top. The presents were stamped separately & fussy cut. I used a tag die for the partial greeting, die cutting it halfway then turning the die around to cut the right half like the left. I really like this tag die set, the holes for it (1 round & 1 square) are separate so I can put it anywhere on the tag.

Here’s a look at the inside (with the rest of the greeting) & also the Copic I used.

Don’t you love this Candy Jar? Wonderful image & so fun to color. After stamping, coloring & die cutting, I added foam layer to pop it up before attaching to the red layer. I found some peppermint paper in the right colors for the background & added the greeting on a stitched circle die cut. I colored & fussy cut some holly (from Bells w/ Holly) to go behind the circle.

Here’s a look at the inside.
