For my 3rd week as a Guest Designer for the Color Challenge (CC775), we have a lavender, purple & mint green color combo w/ the dessert option of making a winter card. Since it’s been below freezing all day here & lows in the mid teens, I think it feels pretty much like this poor bear & his little bird friend look. 

After coloring the bear in the tree, I added the cute little bird (from another winter image) on one of the branches. It was good thing the SU neutrals are allowed, because I made liberal use of the browns, grays & merlot colors! For the bg, I die cut some stitched hills out of scratch paper & used them to sponge in the snow hills & purple/lavender sky. 

After it was sponged, I dry embossed it w/ a snowfall folder & added stickles to the snow. I used the purple inks to sponge the greeting die cut.

Here are the Copics I used, You can see by all the different greens & blue greens, I had to work to get that mint color for the hat & scarf. The purple shades were used just on the bg of the image circle. I didn’t feel like cutting a mask, lol, so I just used the Copics to mimic the sponging I did on the lg background.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Happy New Year & welcome to 2020! I made this for the Splitcoaststampers Fan Club January Christmas Challenge. We have a brand new year of 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 card, I started w/ a die cut piece of tan c/s, then took a wide, flat paintbrush & dry brushed a combo of white, white glimmer & gold glimmer acrylic paints vertically down the panel. When it dried, I put it into my Misti & stamped the wood bg first w/ the desert sand ink then again using Brilliance lightning black.  The ivory circle has the greeting gold embossed on it & edged w/ a gold leaf pen. The dk green circle was stamped w/ the lovely wreath image (& yes..it was a little hard to see the black ink on the dk green bg!) & colored w/ Prismacolor Pencils. I love the gold Prisma pencil on the dk green! I cut around a few of the gold berries & lifted them on top of the greeting circle. A couple of die cut holly were added under the circles. I thought the white card front looked a little too bright so I sponged it w/ Distress antique linen before attaching everything.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Congrats to Susan, the newest Featured Stamper (FS673) on Splitcoast! She has a fab gallery & I chose THIS card as my inspiration. I kept the blues & oval but used different images & dies & turned the layout.

I thought a little winter card would be nice. I put thank you on the inside but it could just as well be a winter birthday card. Had to take the pictures flat because this navy bg is one of those colors that defy picture taking. I have a couple of colors that the camera just goes haywire trying to capture the color & this is one. Flat like this, it comes out fine & hopefully you can see the silver snowflakes & silver embossed greeting, too. The snowflakes were stamped w/ the silver ink, but I didn’t emboss them..just heat set them. For the ice skates,  I stamped them on the lighter blue/gray c/s & used Prismacolor Pencils on them. I have really enjoyed using the pencils on different colors of c/s lately & this color seemed to work out well for the skates. A few silver punched snowflakes were added to finish.

Here’s the inside:
