Welcome to June!  And it’s time for the Splitcoaststampers Fan Club June  Christmas Challenge! We have a year of new 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. Hint..I’m really loving the new theme for this year.

On my CAS Christmas card, Santa & the other images were stamped, colored & die cut w/ their matching dies. Santa & the small circle greeting were popped up a bit & since the bottom looked too empty to me, I added a couple of snow hills w/ a little stickles across the tops.

Here are the Copics I used. I also used BG01 for the blue/green elements, but it somehow didn’t make it into the pic.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

For the Splitcoast Inspiration Challenge (IC808) we’re headed to a Picture Frame place where I found THIS picture. I loved the eagle & thought it would be a great patriotic card.

For my card, I stamped the screaming eagle. This is a 2 part stamp set & the second part is a watercolor type bg that adds color in places to the eagle. Before I stamped the 2nd part, I used some Copics to color in the eagle then used some yellow, red & blue inks on the watercolor part of the stamp & stamped over it. The eagle was loosely fussy cut then I used a watercolor splatter image to add more of the same colors to a white bg. The eagle was popped up on top of the then I added a white deckle frame w/ the USA stamped in red. The stars were all leftovers & I attached them on top of the left side of the frame.

Here are the Copics I used:

A big congrats to Pat, the newest Featured Stamper (FS744) on Splitcoast! She has a lovely gallery & there were many I wanted to pick, but I went w/ THIS card for my case. I kept the CAS layout & split die cut, but used different stamps & dies & used a colorful panel & narrow frames behind & around my die cuts.

For my card, I used an inside slimline die for my linear panel, but instead of cutting from both ends, I cut 2 slits & inserted the die under it. I took a couple of pics to show you. On this pic, I penciled in a little wider than the die & used a Kraft knife to cut the 2 horizontal slits.

Now I positioned the die on top of the first section of the card, but under the band I created, then on top of the bottom section, as shown.

Instead of a solid color, I used a colorful leftover strip I made by using drops of dye reinkers on glossy paper then blowing thru a straw to make the inks move. I added partial cobalt blue frames around the die cuts because I thought it looked more finished this way.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
