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.

Congrats to Carolyn, the newest Featured Stamper  (FS521) on Splitcoast! She has a wonderful gallery & I really fell for THIS one. I liked the matching border & embossing folder but since I don’t have any like that, I used a different folder, different image & made mine monochromatic instead of rainbow colors.

My winter card has a white background embossed w/ a folder that has the dots on top & snowflakes below. The folder has a blank band in between the two, but it’s covered up by my image panel. The image was stamped w/ the navy blue ink onto a stitched panel & I added just strips of the dk blue card stock on top & bottom. Only the first part of the greeting was stamped on a white circle & backed w/ a dk blue stitched circle. Just a little stickles was added on the trees for some winter sparkle.

Here’s the inside…I must apologize for how blotchy it looks. I was anxious to get it in the mail & already wrote a message inside before I took the picture. The picture suffers some from photo editing to try to blot it out, lol.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Today’s Mixed Media Challenge (MIX209) asks us to Make it Frosty. While it may look a little simple, believe me, there’s a lot going on here.
First I brayered a really large acrylic block  using a blues rainbow pad, spritzed the block w/ water, then smushed it around w/ a water brush & stamped it onto the card stock. Sort of a variation on Wrinkle Free Distress. After it dried a little, I spritzed it w/ a spray I made w/ thinned white acrylic paint. Then the trees &  snowflakes were white embossed on top. Well…my Wrinkle Free Distress was wrinkle free until I heat embossed. 😉  I added a white die cut frame & half of the Snowy Days greeting on an oval. 

Here’s a look at the inside.
