Welcome to January 2022!  And it’s time for the Splitcoaststampers Fan Club January Christmas Challenge! You’ll need to be Fan Club member but that’s easy…just click the blue link to find out how. Thank you, Stacy, my friend, for 10 yrs of wonderful challenges! We’re all sad to see you go, & since this will also be my last on this challenge, I wanted to make sure to honor you.

I chose a non-Christmas card to case..Big Blooms 4 by Twinshappy at Splitcoaststampers lovely card of yours. The angle is such a great detail, so I kept it. I did move the greeting to the main panel & left off the embossing. I used the Color Fuse inks to stamp some pinecones, greenery & berries in the lower left corner & a few extra that I die cut w/ the matching dies. I used the long edge of the stitched border die to cut the corner off then added a scallop edge underneath it. The extra images were popped up above the angled cut.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

For the Splitcoast Inspiration Challenge (IC837), we’re visiting Emerlyn Closet & their Pinterest Board, where I found THIS lovely image.

For my slimline card, I started w/ a panel of turquoise which I spritzed w/ bleach, then die cut. The pine boughs were stamped all down the left side & colored in w/ Copics. The pinecones, leaves & berries were stamped on white, colored & die cut w/ their matching dies. When I started to arrange them on top of the pine boughs, the narrow white outline around them seemed too bright. Instead of trimming them all, I took a Copic close to the bg color & went around the edges to make them blend in a little better. A fine line black marker was used to draw the branches to the berries. The cones, leaves & some of the berries were popped up a bit for dimension. I used a white Posca paint pen to add “snow” to the images. For the greeting, I used the same die as the turquoise panel to get the width, but moved the top & bottom in to make it much narrower, height-wise.

These are the Copics I used:

My friend, Jean, on the Splitcoast Technique Lovers Challenge team, asked me to make a sample for today’s TLC877 Challenge. She picked a technique I did a tutorial for 10 years ago! You can see the tutorial HERE on Splitcoast, & I even made a video for it HERE. (You can also view a tutorial I did on my blog HERE.)

This time I did a winter theme & used snowflakes for the bg. I forgot my own advice about using small stamps but was happy to see a white Posca paint pen took care of the few little oversteps.

I will mention, I die cut the stitched back panel first then measured to know where to score the “tiles”. The panel measures 4″x 5.25″ so I scored the lines 1 5/16″ apart. The first time I scored them, I used a Scor-Buddy but found the lines weren’t as deep as when I used a Scor-It board. You want to be sure to use the indented side of the scored bg for your front side.

The teddy was stamped, colored & die cut, popped up a bit on the center panel. The deckle frame was sponged w/ the same set of blue inks I used on the bg & I added a few glitter snowflakes. Here are the Copics I used:
