For the Splitcoast Inspiration Challenge (IC781), we’re headed to Hello Lucky, where I found THIS cute picture.

My frosty friends were stamped, starting w/ Santa, then masked as I went to stamp them in the pyramid. There are matching dies, I just didn’t use them this time. The string of lights & cute little tree & present were added, then everything was colored & I added some stitched snow banks at the bottom. A little stickles was added for sparkle.

Here are the Copics I used:

It’s my honor to host the Splitcoast Featured Stamper Challenge (FS719) & a big congrats to Dacia, the newest Featured Stamper! She has a beautiful gallery & I chose THIS card to case. I kept the Christmas theme & inked/embossed bg but used different images & dies & inked a die (instead of an embossing folder) & embossed it.

For my slimline card, I used these beautiful layering stamps & Color Fuse inks to stamp the pinecones, berries & leaves then die cut them. I attached them to a red rectangle frame on top of a green rectangle. On the long bg, I inked the die w/ gray ink then embossed it instead of cutting it. I really like the pattern it left.

Here’s how I inked it. Pretty easy..just tap the ink pad to the die, like you would for a stamp. I wouldn’t rub it because the the metal can tear up your ink pad.

Then place the inked die onto your card stock, being careful not to move or shift it, & emboss it like you would a texture plate. 

I used gray ink & this is how it looks afterwards.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

For the Inspiration Challenge (IC780), we’re headed to Cute Tape. They have lots of cute washi tapes, & I chose THIS for my inspiration. The grid pattern reminded me of the stamp I used for the background so I built my card around it.

The large bg image was put into my Misti & inked first w/ a combination of the lt blue & lt teal inks. Then I wiped that ink off, & dabbed white pigment on in spots & stamped again. It was coated w/ a clear, sparkly powder & heat embossed. For the greeting circle, I stamped it w/ a dk blue pigment ink & the circle frame around it, I used a teal pigment ink. Both were heat embossed w/ the same powder. For the line of trees, after die cutting, I took the white ink & smooshed it over the trees & heat embossed. I die cut a bunch of the stitched hills & the colored up gnomes then put it all together.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
