Welcome to March! I made this for the Splitcoast Featured Stamper Challenge &  since it’s Mar 1, time for the Splitcoaststampers Fan Club March Christmas Challenge. ! We have a brand new year of 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

A big congrats to Maura, the newest Featured Stamper (FS682)! She has such a wonderful gallery & I chose THIS to case. I kept most of the layout & winter theme, but used different images, different dies & different colors.

For my green & gold Christmas card, I pulled out a green & gold alcohol ink background & stamped the Star Flower bg image w/ gold ink & gold embossed it. After die cutting it, I used part of a border die to cut the lower part into two sections. I embossed the greeting using a topiary tapestry embossing powder on the brushed gold layer then attached the green layers on top. Three sizes of brushed gold circles were die cut & I used the same topiary powder to emboss parts of the star flower onto them & popped them up on top.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

We have a wonderful Pinterest Board & Kia as a guest hostess for the Inspiration Challenge this week! So many lovely table settings & after much browsing, I chose THIS as my inspiration because I loved the flowers on top of the stripes.

After coloring the poppy bouquet, I colored an extra image & cut out the center 3 flowers & popped them up, rotated 45 degrees on the base image. The base layer was die cut w/ the center border & I added a coordinating border underneath it before attaching it to the green stripe paper. I couldn’t find any black & white stripe paper that I liked, but this green stripe fit the colors really well (it’s from an older box of blank Christmas cards!). 

Here are the Copics I used:

A big congrats to Shelly, the newest Featured Stamper (FS681) on Splitcoast! She has a big, beautiful gallery & I chose THIS card to case. I liked the cutout image on top of the stenciled bg so I kept those. But I used different images, different colors & a different stencil.

After stenciling the bg w/ the distress inks, I colored & fussy cut the lovely Laura image. She was attached on top of the greeting panel & that was pretty much it.

Here are the Copics I used: BG’s for shirt. E’s & R’s for skin & lips. YR for eyes.
