X2!

It’s my pleasure to host the Splitcoast Featured Stamper Challenge (FS663) this week, so a big Congrats to Claudette! I chose THIS card to case. I kept the four pane window design, but I used different stamps & dies & made mine a Christmas card.

My card started w/ the die cut 4 pane window frame. I used it to pencil in the position of the gnomes on a piece of X-Press It then stamped & colored them. For the 2 gnomes who have feet &/or hands out of the box, I made a couple extra & fussy cut those parts to add on top. I placed the 4 pane die onto the gnomes & cut them so they’d have the stitching, too. When it was all put together, I added a piece of thin fun foam behind the whole panel to pop it up a bit, then added the die cut holly.

Here are the Copics I used.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Supplies:

Stamps: Rubbernecker Stamps: Andre Winter Gnome, Michael Winter Gnome, Thomas Winter Gnome, William Winter Gnome
Paper:  Staples 110# white, green, red, X-Press It, dp (Essential Prints)
Ink: Memento tuxedo black
Accessories:  Rubbernecker Stamps: Rectangle Stitch, Window Stitch, Holly #1 dies, Copic Sketch Markers

For the Inspiration Challenge (IC721), we have Flags on a Stick. They have some really fun, really nice flags & for my card, I was inspired by THIS Halloween flag. I thought the decorated birdhouses were really cute.

For my Halloween card, I die cut the houses & ghosts out of white, the tree, crows & fence out of black & the tiny pumpkin out of orange. To me it seemed simpler to cut the houses in white & color them instead of cutting a bunch out of different colored paper. The die I used for the birdhouses is actually one multilevel roofline spooky house. I cut it out twice then cut apart the house to make my 3 birdhouses. On the yellow one, I colored the stars thru a stencil.  I used a 3/8″ circle punch for the holes, colored them black & put them back in. Then I just put all the pieces together on a white front where I had already stamped the greeting frame.

Here are the Copics (& 1 orange Tombow) I used. This may be the first time I’ve used that black Copic!

It’s my pleasure & my turn to host the Splitcoast Inspiration Challenge (IC718) & we’re headed to Piper Classics. They have a lot of lovely items & I was inspired by the colors in THIS picture.

I saw a similar card, a very long time ago but I can’t find it for anything, now that I’m looking for it. I think it was probably by Michelle Zindorf, but I’m not certain. Doesn’t it always happen that way? Anyway, it stuck in my head & I thought this would be a great way to use this Single Fall Tree image.

After I masked off the water area & sponged in the ground & bg tree line, I reversed the mask & sponged in the water. I used a few yellow & orange Copics to add the trees/bushes in the distance, then I put the tree image into my Misti & stamped it w/ Distress oxide inks in walnut & espresso. First one was stamped, then I moved the panel to stamp it again, & again, & again. I turned it upside down, lined the trees up, & stamped them in tea dye for the reflection trees. After all the trees were stamped, I added some white lines w/ a gel pen in the water & sponged a little walnut around the edges.

Here’s the inside.
