A big congrats to Pat, the newest Featured Stamper (FS826) on Splitcoast. She has a wonderful gallery & I chose THIS card to case. I kept the layout w/ the split panel, but used different dies, slightly different colors & instead of a split negative I elected to add a gray shadow layer under the white on the white panel.

On my card, I used a piece of dk grey designer paper w/ little images instead of the black panel Pat used. I die cut the tree & snow out of white then added a grey shadow layer under the white on the white side panel. The random dots were stamped w/ a lt grey ink & I added a cardinal & 2 ornaments on the tree. The die cut Joy was added above the rest of the stamped greeting. all in all, a fairly quick CAS Christmas card.

Thanks so much for stopping  by!

It’s my pleasure to host the Splitcoast Inspiration Challenge (IC887) this week & we’re visiting Paper Heart Design & their Pinterest Boards where I was inspired by THIS color palette.

For my mini slimline card, I die cut a piece of the winter paper w/ a stitched mini slimline die & added a narrow red layer behind it. The wreath was built using die cuts from part of a wreath set, mistletoe, branches & poinsettias. Since it looked a little busy w/ the paper showing thru the wreath center, so I put back the white center from the wreath ring. The  Merry w/ shadow was popped up a bit & I used a paper crimper to crimp the red wreath hanger. Gold stickles was added on the wreath & poinsettias.

A big congrats to Mer, the newest Featured Stamper on Splitcoast! She has a lovely gallery and I chose THIS card to case. I kept the cute fox but used different images & dies, different colors & made mine an A2.

After stamping, coloring & die cutting the cute fox, I hunted for something to imitate the curving trees w/ opening in the center. I came up w/ the idea to use this mosaic cover die, then use an oval to cut out the center. To cover this cut, I die cut a blue oval ring using 2 sizes of oval dies. I popped it up just a bit on top of the mosaic. The little fox & greeting were added on a smaller, stitched oval which popped up a bit more.

Here are the Copics I used:
