A big congrats to Jacqueline, the newest Featured Stamper (FS713) on Splitcoast! She has a fab gallery & after much browsing, I chose THIS card to case. I kept the circle & trees but used some stamps instead of all dies, different dies & made mine a Christmas card.

For my Christmas card, I colored & die cut the cute little critters then die cut a large white panel. I used a stitched hill die to cut it in half, then sponged the upper half & splattered w/ water. I also stamped a random dot image w/ Picket Fence ink & used a white Posca pen to add some bright white snow dots, then I put the panel back together. The circle w/ the trees was die cut once out of pine green & once out of white, again stamping the dots w/ white onto the green version & stacked them a little off. I added a  white stitched frame on top of the green one then attached it to my panel & added the animals.  I saw I had enough room for a greeting & thankfully was able to add it this late in the process by using my Misti.

Here are the Copics I used:

Welcome to October!  And it’s time for the Splitcoaststampers Fan Club Oct 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.

I admit I had a little trouble with this. I started w/ a piece of black card stock & inked the inside of the embossing folder w/ Versamark & first dry embossed it then heat embossed w/ a clear, sparkly powder. To me, the words didn’t really show up enough, so I inked over the raised letters w/ white pigment ink & heat embossed it again w/ white powder. It’s still really sparkly & it has a snowy, distressed look. The smaller black panel was die cut & dry embossed w/ the same folder. The ornaments were die cut once out of silver glitter paper & again in black. I pieced the two together then used a black Wink of Stella on the black pieces. The Noel was also die cut out of the silver glitter paper.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

There’s a new challenge in town on Splitcoast..just started up this summer. It’s the Watercolor Wednesday Challenge & today the challenge (WCW015) is watercolored die cuts. I think the aim to watercolor on die cuts. I went about it in the opposite direction, but I hope that will still count.

This skyline die is brand new & is only pre-order right now, but will start shipping soon. I had it in my mind to make a city scene at Christmas so I rather randomly painted a piece of watercolor paper w/ greens & reds. I used Brushos & mixed the powders in a plastic palette before dropping them, wet into wet, onto the w/c paper. I used a heat gun to quickly dry it & this stopped the color from totally blending out & gave me some hard edges & the splotches I was looking for. After it was dry, I die cut it. I also die cut a piece of scratch paper & used the negative top part as a mask & sponged in the background buildings before popping the die cut version up w/ fun foam & attaching it. Before I put it all on the slimline card front, I splattered it w/ white acrylic paint, then stamped the greeting (new & also soon to be released!). A narrow stitched hill was attached on top to represent snow on the ground. I dotted some of the snow w/ stickles for a little sparkle.

Thank so much for stopping by!
