It’s my turn to host the Splitcoast Inspiration Challenge (IC871), & we’re visiting Minted & their Pinterest Board. My inspiration came from THIS Christmas card.  I liked the white bg w/ just the accents of red & green.

My Christmas card is pretty easy. I die cut the Holly cover die out of white glitter card stock and a bunch of the holly & berries out of green & red glitter. The Merry was cut out of red glitter & the shadow out of white glitter, then stacked onto more layers to elevated it a bit. I had some big clear glitter embellishments that I colored w/ a red Copic & added them on top of the holly sprays on the side. I used a plaid piercing die on the plain white bg…subtle, but it adds a little texture to it.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

A big congrats to Sue, the newest Featured Stamper (FS804) on Splitcoast! She has a wonderful gallery & after much browsing I chose THIS card to case. I kept the colorful spiky elements but made mine a slimline & changed it from Christmas to birthday.

For my card, I die cut the white front w/ a large stitched slimline die then used the new quilted cover piercing die on it. I made a frame for it by using the same stitched die & die cutting it again w/ the next smaller size. On a separate piece of white, I used Copics to color bands of color then placed it behind the quilted piece. I knew I wanted the spiky flowers on some of the circles, so I used a couple of circle punches (for centers) then lined the holes up w/ the center of the flower & die cut them. I also colored them w/ the same makers then added colored gems to these centers for a little sparkle.

The Birthday word was die cut out of some leftover watercolor paper & the shadow layer was cut out of white. I stamped the small Happy above it & added a med blue layer behind the panel.

It’s my turn to host the Splitcoast Featured Stamper Challenge (FS802) & a big congrats to Maggie! She has a wonderful gallery & I chose THIS card to case. I kept the 3 windows & the sunny yellow & bright pink colors, but used different images & dies & made mine a slimline card w/ a stenciled bg.

For my summer card, I used a sunburst stencil & a couple of yellow inks to sponge in the sun rays. Since the stencil is a 6″square, I had to move it to cover the entire front. I used a reverse circle mask to sponge in the center of the sun. The penguins were stamped, colored & die cut then arranged on top of the blue waves I cut to go behind the yellow window frame. The greeting was stamped in the center window.

Here are the Copics I used:
