When I saw the technique challenge on Splitcoast (TLC676) was a fancy fold, the first thing I thought was “it’s gonna be trouble”. I was right. But at least I had resigned myself to that fact going in. And it was really only trouble for a few reasons…

1. I also decided I HAD to give the Gilded Faux Silk another try (first time was horrible). It made the sliding top really stiff & hard to fold.
2. My measurements were a little different so I had to reverse engineer it. Sheesh! Will I never learn?
3. I keep getting sucked into the bottomless pit of hubby’s plumbing reconfigurations. Not only has he acquired every plumbing tool known to man, he also constantly borrows MY crafting tools. Apparently, my tools are better than his tools, lol. And I have to help him reengineer the problem. (He’s NOT a plumber..he’s not even particularly mechanically inclined, lol.)

So..the gilded faux silk turned out better this time, probably because I needed snowflakes & blue & that looks good together. The fold finally cooperated. But then a fourth problem..silver & fancy folds are very HARD to photograph. It is what it is & here it is.

And here’s a look at the inside. I went simple since the front was an engineering feat!

A big congrats to Rochelle, the newest Featured Stamper (FS557)! She has a sweet gallery & after browsing, I chose THIS to case. I kept the Christmas snow globe but left off the shaker & used different images & dies.


I love this big snow globe and the Christmas Village images fit perfectly inside it. Just had to decide which ones to use. Finally decided on the lovely Gazebo &  Lamp Post & added a couple more trees for balance. After stamping the globe, I die cut a circle almost the same size out of copy paper & used the left over as a reverse mask to stamp the images inside & keep them from going out of the edges.

After coloring everything, I used a white gel pen to add snow where I wanted it &  then some stickles for sparkle. The Triple Holly was fussy cut &  added & the greeting was stamped on the red & I used the white gel pen to highlight the letters. 

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

This was also inspired by the Inspiration Challenge (IC678) & THIS is the picture/colors that inspired me.

To make my Wonderland card, I stamped the Winter Fence Line, masked off the bottom, put a circle mask for the moon & sponged in the pink & lilac for the sky. I used Copics to color the shadows on the snow then added snow in the sky & on the trees w/ a white gel pen. After die cutting the lilac & purple layers, the greeting was white embossed under the window.  I attached the scene behind the window then added the die cut snowflakes & a little stickles on the snow in the trees.

Here’s a look at the inside…more sponging & the same fence line was stamped w/ the lilac ink. Below it are the Copics I used.
