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.

Happy New Year!!

A big congrats to Tara, the newest Featured Stamper (FS517) on Splitcoast! She has a wonderful gallery and I chose THIS to case. I kept the pink & white colors & vertical layered layout, but I used different images, stamped the background instead of embossing, moved the embossing to the mittens & made mine a winter card.

I stamped the Winter Words repeatedly across the white panel w/ pink chalk ink then added a die cut pink layer behind it. The Warm Wishes was stamped on a stitched arch then I added just the bow from a die cut star die & punched two mittens out of pink, embossed them w/ a knit folder & used a white Permapaque marker over the top of the embossing. A few pink die cut snowflakes finished it.

Here’s a look at the inside w/ a new greeting. It may be hard to see, but I stamped the Interlocking Snow Bg all over it w/ pink Distress ink.
