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!

Congrats to Jan, the newest Featured Stamper (FS659) on Splitcoast! She has one fab gallery & it was really hard to pick just one. But THIS card really stayed w/ me so I picked it to case. I kept the big, patterned die cut letters & most of the colors, but I used different stamps, different dies & turned it into a Christmas card. 

For my version, after coloring the many moose (mooses? meeses? I know the plural is the same as the singular..it just looks weird, kwim?), they were die cut w/ the matching dies. The bg was sponged w/ Distress inks & splattered w/ water. On the Merry letters, I sponged the Brilliance ink onto red c/s using several new Rubbernecker stencils, spritzed it w/ shimmer spray,  then die cut them. I added some Washi tape toward the top & a couple of stitched snow hills at the bottom before adding the moose herd. The Christmas was white embossed on black & tucked under the washi tape.

Here are the Copics I used.

For the Splitcoast Inspiration Challenge (IC720), we are going to Burton & Burton. There were a lot of things I wanted to use for inspiration, but I kept coming back to THIS picture. 

After I die cut the trees, deer & a white front, I sponged the Distress inks down another white panel, then splattered it w/ some picket fence Distress stain.  The die cuts were attached (I used a black Prismacolor pencil on the birch trees) & the little scene was spritzed w/ a shimmer spray.  

After I decided how tall to make my little scene, I used my Resizing Technique to divide the top white panel in two, then shorten them (this technique works for making die cuts smaller as well as larger!). I had some corrugated white cardboard saved from a light bulb pkg, so I used it to pop up the 2 white panel a bit. Stickles was used on the white snowflake & a few clear sequins for additional sparkle. Thanks so much for stopping by!
