It’s my pleasure to host the Splitcoast Inspiration Challenge this week & we’re headed to a lovely site that also has an awesome Pinterest Board..Mackenzie-Childs. For my card, I was inspired by THIS wreath.
I really loved the gorgeous wreath so I went for a totally silver & white combo. I wanted a bigger wreath circle than the one in the wreath set, so I used a couple of circle dies for my wreath base. I die cut all the ‘greenery’ & sm. snowflake out of metallic silver &/or silver glitter papers. The poinsettias were die cut out of white glitter paper & the 3 little cardinals out of silver mirror paper. I used some thin silver cord to twine around the wreath & made a loopy bow for the top of the wreath. The greeting is from a large frame greeting, but I didn’t ink the frame part. Since my wreath is good size, the card is also. It measures 6.5 x 5 so it fits in an A7 envelope. The white bg also is larger than the A2 sized rectangle die so I had to use my die resizing/extending technique to make it larger. I thought the sides looked a little bare so I added a couple of strips of silver mirror paper to each side.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

A big congrats to Krista, the newest Featured Stamper (FS668) on Splitcoast! She has a wonderful gallery & there are many I wanted to chose, but I kept coming back to THIS card. I like the plaid, the trees & the layout, so I kept those, but I used different stamps, different dies & different papers.

After die cutting the base layers, I used an older Christmas pad of papers for the trio of trees & die cut them. There are actually 3 sizes of these trees, but I only used the largest & 2 of the middle size. To make the gold glitter backing layers, I die cut 2 for each tree & cut one down the middle, spread it to either side of the top tree, then used the second one for the lower section. I attached these trees to die cut pieces of card board for lift & strength. The gold glitter paper is from a roll of wrapping paper. For the snowflakes, I glued more of the wrapping paper to card stock before die cutting them. The greeting was white embossed on the faintly patterned red paper. 

Thanks so much for stopping by!

It’s my pleasure to host the Splitcoast Featured Stamper Challenge this week, so a big Congrats to Susan, the newest Featured Stamper! She has a bunch of adorable gnome cards in her gallery & I chose THIS card to case. I kept the gnome & shaker elements, but used different images & dies, different colors & moved my greeting to the inside of the shaker window.

For my card, I colored & die cut the cute gnome (yay!there are now matching dies!), then I die cut the white bg & also cut the circle into it. I stacked 2 of these fronts together to give it some depth for the shaker behind it. Then I used 2 sizes of stitched circle dies to make the frame around the opening.

A couple of stitched snow hills were added at the bottom w/ a line of stickles for a little sparkle. The shaker pouch is actually a clear bag that something came in & I used my fuse tool to seal it all around before attaching it under the top layers. The circular greeting was stamped directly onto the card front & I used my Misti to stamp it in sections w/ different colored ink &/or markers.

Here are the Copics I used for the gnome.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
