It’s my turn to host the Splicoaststampers Featured Stamper Challenge (FS507) so I want to give a big Congrats to Bev, better known as guneaxdesigns! I chose THIS card to CASE. I kept the layout & Christmas theme, but I used stamps instead of a napkin, added a window arch & used an embossing folder. 
I’m using a brand new Pinecone image for my centerpiece. The pinecone was stamped, colored w/ Copics & fussy cut. Then I die cut a large white panel, cut out the arched window & cut another arch (using 2 sizes of the same die set) to make a frame. I stamped the Merry Christmas Arc on the frame (I cut the image apart to make it easier). On the leftover inside arched piece & also on the leftover large frame, I used the Woven Plaid stamp (the cut apart version), & the 3 colors of Distress inks. I went back I embossed the white layer w/ a snowfall folder before I put it all together & I also added a little die cut holly for the hanging part of the pinecone.

Here’s a look at the inside & below it are the Copics I used.
Thanks so much for stopping by!

  • Very nice. Your pinecone looks so real.

  • Rita:

    Lovely design … as always Julie!! I wonder if you could explain more about your Woven Plaid stamp that you’ve cut apart? I have that stamp and just love it and am always excited to see it used on a project. What portion of the image did you cut away and did you cut the stamp apart to make it more versatile? Thanks for any information you can supply!
