My friend, Jean, on the Splitcoast Technique Lovers Challenge team, asked me to make a sample for today’s TLC877 Challenge. She picked a technique I did a tutorial for 10 years ago! You can see the tutorial HERE on Splitcoast, & I even made a video for it HERE. (You can also view a tutorial I did on my blog HERE.)

This time I did a winter theme & used snowflakes for the bg. I forgot my own advice about using small stamps but was happy to see a white Posca paint pen took care of the few little oversteps.

I will mention, I die cut the stitched back panel first then measured to know where to score the “tiles”. The panel measures 4″x 5.25″ so I scored the lines 1 5/16″ apart. The first time I scored them, I used a Scor-Buddy but found the lines weren’t as deep as when I used a Scor-It board. You want to be sure to use the indented side of the scored bg for your front side.

The teddy was stamped, colored & die cut, popped up a bit on the center panel. The deckle frame was sponged w/ the same set of blue inks I used on the bg & I added a few glitter snowflakes. Here are the Copics I used:

A big congrats to Amy, the newest Featured Stamper (FS774) on Splitcoast! She has a wonderful gallery & I chose THIS card to case. I kept the dog/doghouse Christmas theme, but used all dies & a different layout & colors on mine. I’m also combining this w/ the Splitcoaststampers Fan Club December Christmas Challenge!  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. Hint..I’m really loving the new theme for this year.

For my doggy Christmas card, I die cut all the pieces for the dog, house, & little Christmas items out of scraps of different colored card stock & put them all together. I added a snowy roofline & chimney w/ smoke to the roof & perched a little bird on there, as well. Only 1 side of a lg scallop die was used for the green trim down the side of the narrow red panel. The dog & house are popped up a bit w/ foam.

For the Splitcoast Inspiration Challenge (IC820), we’re headed to Nordic Wall Decor & their Pinterest Board where I found THIS group of pictures.

Everything on my card was die cut & the bg was done using 2 stencils. I put all the van pieces together, added the waves, seagulls & palm trees. The palms were lightly scored w/ a piercing tool to give them some detail & I sponged a large circle w/ the same Color Fuse inks I used on the sun rays & added it on top.
