Weekly-FavoriteA big CONGRATS to Susan (One4Joy), the newest Featured Stamper (FS354) on Splitcoast! I’ve been a fan of Susan’s for a long time and I love her wonderful thoughtfulness and quirky style. While I love her projects, it was hard for me to case her. I chose THIS beautiful card to case. So my attempt is close..I kept the same layout and big circle element, but I used different images, different embossing folder and added a bow instead of the felt snowflake border. 

I embossed the lovely ornament w/ a sparkly black/green powder onto a shimmery mint green card stock and die cut it w/ the coordinating die. The shimmery dark green card stock was embossed w/ a multi image folder, but I only used one section and moved it around to selectively emboss the same snowflake line three times. I added two die cut mint green borders on top and bottom w/ the greeting stamped on the lower one. The ribbon for the bow was colored w/ Copics to match and the finished card is 4.25 x 5.50. 

Congrats again, Susan, enjoy your week! Thanks so much for stopping by!

For today’s Inspiration Challenge (IC415) on Splitcoast, I chose THIS as the inspiration for my card. And I incorporated a miniature as this little cardinal image is actually a miniature of a much larger image.  I’m using the new little cardinal mage (coming soon!)  and pairing it with the Nativity Noel (minus the nativity scene inside the O). I masked out the nativity when I stamped the Noel and also stamped an extra O. I used a reverse mask and stamped the pine bough inside it. The little cardinal was stamped, colored w/ Copics and fussy cut. After they were attached to the Noel, I added a scallop edge pine green panel behind it, some punched greenery and a few red sequins. The finished card is 5.50 x 4.25 and these are the Copics I used.

Well the MIX challenge on Splitcoast sounded really interesting so I thought I’d give it a go. I totally messed up the first little Merry I did because I was impatient w/ the stylus part. Apparently patience is not my strong suit. On the second try, I bypassed the stylus part entirely. After die cutting 3 sets of the MERRY letters and gluing them together then onto a strip of c/s I sprayed it w/ adhesive and put my foil over it.

Here’s the fun part…I put it on my embossing mat and ran it thru the Sizzix. That’s a real time saver! And it worked better than me w/ the stylus. Instead of paint, I used some red Copics to color around the letters. Then I sprayed another piece of c/s, attached another piece of foil and die cut it w/ the viney background. Feels funny to not have used any stamps or inks 🙂
