Archive for the ‘Splitcoaststampers Weekly Favorite’ Category


For the Splitcoast Inspiration Challenge (IC791) we’re headed to Shindigz (a party supply place) where I found THIS picture for my inspiration. I loved the color on the birches.

For my card, after die cutting the lt blue panel, I stamped it w/ the white ink using the dot bg. The birches were die cut & I used B66 & B32 Copics to shade the edges. The leaves on the bg were stamped using a couple of the blue ink & the ones on top were die cut & shaded w/ the same Copics.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

As a knitter, I love the Studio Knit Pinterest Board Stacy chose. I’m pretty sure I’ll be going back there to check out the patterns in closer detail. For my card, I was inspired by THIS. I loved the color & texture.

I started by inking the knitted embossing folder w/ a dark blue & med. turquoise inks then embossed it onto white. The paper was lightly spritzed w/ water to help the inking & embossing process. Love how that turned out! Then I die cut the snowman & accessories & instead of adding the die cut scarf, I knitted a little scarf w/ some small needles. Since it was so small, I didn’t try to do anything fancy…just a garter stitch border & stockinette body. I made a frame & stamped the snowflakes w/ a lt blue then put it all together. I did used a C2 & BG000 to add a little shading to the snowman.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Welcome to November!  And it’s time for the Splitcoaststampers Fan Club Nov 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. AND..it’s also time for the Featured Stamper Challenge (FS717) so I’m combining both challenges for this card plus I have another card for just the FS.

On my first card, I cased THIS card of Mary’s. I kept the sunrise/sunset scene w/ the silhouette image, but I used die cuts instead of a stencil, made mine a slimline Christmas card & used slightly different colors.

After die cutting the deer & tree out of black, I die cut the white slimline ticket shaped panel & a few more bottom sections out of white. I used a stitched hill die to cut those extra bottoms into snowbanks. I used a large circle die to cut a reverse mask out of copy paper & used it to sponge in the sun. For the sky, I used the negative part of the slimline cloud die to add some cloud like shapes to the sky. The deer & tree were popped up slightly using cardboard die cut w/the same dies. White acrylic paint & a paintbrush was used to splatter the falling snow then I used some stickles in areas for a little sparkle.

Supplies for this card:

Stamps:Rubbernecker Stamps: Christmas Phrases Lg/Sm
Paper:  Staples 110# white, black
Ink:  Rubbernecker Color Fuse inks: set #1, set #2 & set #7, Versaclair nocturne

My second card is a little different & I chose THIS card of Mary’s to case. I kept the Christmas theme & making a poinsettia out of a leaf image, but I also used a real leaf to “print” the larger petals & only made one large poinsettia instead of many smaller ones.

I started w/ my die cut white panel & some real leaves I picked off one our Crape Myrtle trees. The shape reminded me of poinsettia petal, but these are a lot sturdier & easy to print. Here’s a pic of the leaves as they looked when I picked them.

I inked a leaf by rubbing the crimson inked over the leaf, placing it ink side down on the panel, then gently rubbing over the backside w/ a paper towel. If you press or rub too hard, you lose the vein detail, so be gentle if you try this.

This is how it looked after I printed the leaf 5 times. I’m not worried about the ink smudges because I’d already planned on using a splatter stamp to add some interest. With the base layer of petals done, I inked part of another leaf w/ the moss ink, masked the red petal w/ the actual leaf, & printed the green leaves. Then I took a leaf rubber stamp, inked it w/ the crimson & stamped it for the smaller, top layer of petals.

The splatter was stamped once w/ scarlet & again w/ gold ink & heat embossed w/ gold powder.  I used a gold leaf Krylon pen around the edges, added the greeting & some gold gems in the center of my poinsettia.
