I made these for the Splitcoaststampers Fan Club August 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. You’ll need to be Fan Club member but that’s easy…just click the blue link to find out how.

To make my card, I put the X-Press It paper into my Misti, stamped the Polar Bears & colored them w/ Copics. I masked them, then stamped the 2 step Watercolor Forest w/ the Memento summer sky & bamboo leaves behind the bears. I used a torn piece of paper to lightly sponge in the snow using the Distress tumbled glass ink. To die cut the panel, I first used the largest of the stitched rectangles dies to cut the entire scene, then used a die 2 sizes smaller to cut the center. Both were attached to slightly larger layers of red glitter paper before attaching to the card. I also added a thin layer of fun foam behind the center panel to raise it up a tad. Stickles was added to the snow & trees. 

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

This is also for the Featured Stamper challenge (FS594). I chose THIS  card of Shannon’s to case.  I kept the layout but her sleigh turned into my camper, her Christmas tree became my palm tree & I made a summer card instead of a Christmas card.

I think this looks like a real summer vacation, doesn’t it? I don’t know that I’d park that cute camper so close to the water, but it had to fit on my card, lol. Since the images are rather large, this is all on one layer. I added a narrow burlap printed layer behind it but everything else was stamped, masked, colored & sponged on the one piece of card stock. I used a circle mask for the sun then sponged it, the sky & the water in. Everything else was colored w/ Copics. With the camper colors & beach front, I’m thinking this is in Florida.

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

This is a fairly quick card for today’s Free for All Challenge (F4A426) & yesterday’s Ways to Use It Challenge (WT684) on Splitcoast. The first challenge has us fussy cutting & the second has us including bugs.

To make my card, I stamped the brick wall w/ gray ink then colored it w/ gray Copics.  The sky was sponged w/ a self made cloud stencil. I decided it was easier to just stamp Mr. Frog on a separate piece, color him & fussy cut him than try to mask out the wall & the original log the frog sits on.  I made a slit along the top of the wall to insert him & make it look like he was leaning on it. The little grass sprigs & ladybug were also fussy cut & added. The greeting was added on a thought/speech bubble along w/ some dragonflies

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