Archive for the ‘Christmas/Holiday/Winter’ Category


Welcome to 2021!  Are you as happy to say adios to 2020 as I am? Seriously, all I can say to 2020 is don’t let the door hit you on the way out. And it’s time for the Splitcoaststampers Fan Club Jan 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. Hint..I’m really loving the new theme for this year.

My card is pretty easy…I stamped the piggy w/ presents onto kraft & colored it in using Prismacolor pencils. I really love the look of Prismas on kraft & especially when paired w/ a bit of white. The snowflakes were stamped on the large kraft layer using Distress picket fence ink then I added a white layer behind piggy & a scalloped edge down the left.
Here’s the inside. I figured the greetings would work well for Christmas, New Year’s or any winter holiday.


Thanks so much for stopping by!

It’s my pleasure to host the Splitcoast Featured Stamper challenge this week, so a big congrats to France, the newest Featured Stamper (FS724)! I chose THIS card to case. I loved the mirror reflection so I kept that, but I used different images & dies & made mine a Christmas card.

For my card, I stamped, colored & die cut the cute snowman, then stamped him again, using masking tape to cover up the areas inside of his outline. I wanted it to look like I was viewing him from the back as he gazes in the mirror. The mirror was die cut out of mirror silver card & put into a white frame then surrounded by a red glitter scallop frame.

The split background is made of a leftover piece of red glitter embossed diagonal stripe & on the top half, I stamped red snowflakes.

Here are the Copics I used:

As a knitter, I love the Studio Knit Pinterest Board Stacy chose. I’m pretty sure I’ll be going back there to check out the patterns in closer detail. For my card, I was inspired by THIS. I loved the color & texture.

I started by inking the knitted embossing folder w/ a dark blue & med. turquoise inks then embossed it onto white. The paper was lightly spritzed w/ water to help the inking & embossing process. Love how that turned out! Then I die cut the snowman & accessories & instead of adding the die cut scarf, I knitted a little scarf w/ some small needles. Since it was so small, I didn’t try to do anything fancy…just a garter stitch border & stockinette body. I made a frame & stamped the snowflakes w/ a lt blue then put it all together. I did used a C2 & BG000 to add a little shading to the snowman.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
