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

A big congrats to Maura, the newest Featured Stamper (FS682)! She has such a wonderful gallery & I chose THIS to case. I kept most of the layout & winter theme, but used different images, different dies & different colors.

For my green & gold Christmas card, I pulled out a green & gold alcohol ink background & stamped the Star Flower bg image w/ gold ink & gold embossed it. After die cutting it, I used part of a border die to cut the lower part into two sections. I embossed the greeting using a topiary tapestry embossing powder on the brushed gold layer then attached the green layers on top. Three sizes of brushed gold circles were die cut & I used the same topiary powder to emboss parts of the star flower onto them & popped them up on top.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

It’s my pleasure to host the Splitcoast Inspiration Challenge (IC739) this week!  We have a really fun site for all you color lovers..CRAYOLA! And since it’s Feb 1, time for the Splitcoaststampers Fan Club February 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. 

From the Crayola Pinterest Board, I saw THIS picture & thought the floral would be perfect for my combo IC & Christmas card. After coloring this new floral bouquet image in shades of pinks & greens,  I die cut it using my out of the box technique to keep from cutting off the leaves. I liked it arranged in the corner & it also gave me room for the greeting. The center panel is up on fun foam & I added a  narrow die cut frame behind it on the large pink layer.

Here are the Copics I used & I also used a few Prismacolor Pencils to deepen the shadows:

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!
