Welcome to April!  And it’s time for the Splitcoaststampers Fan Club April Christmas Challenge! We have a year of new Christmas Challenges!  You’ll need to be Fan Club member but that’s easy…just click the blue link to find out how. Bet you’re wondering what the challenge theme is..I’d love to tell you but you’ll have to go see for yourself.

For my Christmas card, I silver embossed the pine bough image across the brushed silver paper then die cut it and a dk gray/sparkle paper. The greeting was also silver embossed on a smaller piece of the dk gray.

The bells image was colored w/ Copics & pretty much all of the cool gray Prismacolor pencils then fussy cut. I kept the greenery on the gray side of green so it wouldn’t stand out so much.

Here are the Copics I used:

The CAS Challenge on Splitcoast today is bunnies or chicks. I love these cute little peeps & they should qualify as bunnies. I saw a t-shirt ad that had this greeting & some sunglass wearing peeps & thought it was a cute idea. 

For my card, I stamped the 3 peeps, added the sunglasses & then used a few Copics to draw the patterns on them. They were fussy cut & then I thought to add the bow & bow ties so I fussy cut those, too. I had to use a few greetings put together to get what you see & I used a marker to add the IN’ to the end of Peep. The frames & angled piece were some that didn’t get used on another project & I liked how they looked here.

This is going to my dad & stepmom so I wiped the ink off of the “one” & wrote in “two”.

A big congrats to Faith, the newest Featured Stamper on Splitcoast! She has a lovely gallery & I chose THIS to case. I kept the all over floral bg, but used different images, dies & colors & moved the greeting to its own layer.

I used a new multistep stamp set for my card & new Color Fuse ink pad sets in graduated colors. I like that this set also had an outline to go w/ because instead of stamping it in the darkest of the colors, I used black for more contrast. The flowers were stamped w/ the different layers of images in the 4 sets of ink colors. After I finished the bg, I cut it into 2 layers & stuck a narrow black layer between them & elevated the top one a bit. The greeting (from a new Spanish set!) was white embossed onto black & also popped up along w/ the leaves. Turned out pretty colorful for not doing any coloring at all!
