For the Inspiration Challenge we’re headed across the pond to a lovely site. I chose THIS for my inspiration.

My card today took way longer that I planned on spending but that’s how it goes sometimes. I wanted a twig wreath w/ stars on it but I wanted them to be a silver/gold mix & look a little rustic. The stars were pretty easy. I die cut them then covered them w/ a mix of silver ink on the inside & gold ink around the edges then sprinkled on 2 different embossing powders. One is a gilded gold (mostly clear w/ gold flecks) & the other was a stardust powder (mostly clear w/ little sparkles & a hint of silver). I did the same for the grosgrain ribbon die & bow die cut. On the wreath, I die cut it out of brown then used the same gold ep just in places here & there. Then part that took too long happened because I thought w/ the open area in the center, why not make it a shaker? But the sequins looked too bright & shiny. So I did the embossing again on a piece of ivory & die cut the sequins using a sequin die. Big trouble! Most the embossing flaked right off. So….I had piece sticker paper w/ most of the stickers gone & just the borders left. I peeled it off & stuck my sequins to the sticky side & embossed them again. That worked. I should have thought of that first! Then I put it all together & stamped half of the greeting on the front w/ Versa Clair nocturne & sprinkle the gilded gold powder on it & embossed it. You can see it in the close up but head on, it just looks black.

Here’s the inside.

Welcome to October & to the Splitcoaststampers Fan Club October Christmas Challenge! 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.

My card is all on one layer, so there was a little masking going on. I started by stamping & coloring Leonard, then I masked him & stamped the pine bough to resemble a little Charlie Brown Christmas tree & added a few ornaments. I die cut the window then used a reverse mask of it to stamp the North Pole & reindeer. The snow bg was stamped w/ the tumbled glass. I thought it needed something so I stamped part of the light string on the top of the window then added stickles to the lightbulbs & snowflakes. I did a little cutting around the top of Leonard in order to insert the corner of the window frame underneath him.

Here are the Copics I used.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

It’s my pleasure to host the Splitcoast Featured Stamper Challenge (FS660) this week! A big congrats to Rebekah as the newest Featured Stamper! I chose THIS card to case. I  kept the Christmas theme & layout, but I used different stamps, different dies & left off an embossed layer.

Except for the greeting, my card is all die cuts. I used white glitter paper for the roof of the cabin, the snow hills & little round snowflakes. After I cut the snow hills, I stuck them together & cut them in the shape of the white oval layer. The trees were cut w/ a couple of greens & I added stickles to them. For the largest layer & scallop oval layer, I used some old Cricut Christmas paper. The poinsettia was die cut out of watercolor paper & I used Brushes & a paintbrush to add the color to the petals & leaves.

Thanks so much for stopping by.
