I made this for the Splitcoaststampers Fan Club May 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. It’s a lot of fun & I hope you’ll head on over & join us. You’ll need to be Fan Club member but that’s easy…just click the blue link to find out how.

For my CAS Christmas card, I put a piece of sand colored card stock into my Misti then stamped the image. The holly & greeting are all one image, so it’s easy to use. First I colored the holly w/ Copics then did a Prismacolor pencil overlay & added some white inside the lines above & below the greeting. Here’s where the Misti is invaluable..lines tend to disappear when you use Prismas, so I stamped it again to bring them back. I masked the holly greeting & stamped the snowflakes w/ white pigment ink & heat set to dry. A few snowflakes were punched out of white glitter paper to add some sparkle.

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


Thanks so much for stopping by!

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!

I made this for 2 Splitcoast Challenges today…the Technique (TLC675) acetate inking, and the Clean & Simple (CAS466) to have/use something clear. 

For the TLC, I used DOX (Distress oxide ink) on a piece of acetate to make the piece I used behind the window.  For the CAS (something clear) I used a portion of a window die (clear window) & put my Santa puppy on the ledge looking out. The white front was stamped w/ the snowflakes & embossed w/ the bricked folder & I added the greeting (half die cut, half stamped) & a few punched snowflakes. 

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