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!

It’s my pleasure to host the Splitcoast Inspiration Challenge (IC739) this week!  We have a really fun site for all you color lovers..CRAYOLA! And since it’s Feb 1, time for the Splitcoaststampers Fan Club February 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. 

From the Crayola Pinterest Board, I saw THIS picture & thought the floral would be perfect for my combo IC & Christmas card. After coloring this new floral bouquet image in shades of pinks & greens,  I die cut it using my out of the box technique to keep from cutting off the leaves. I liked it arranged in the corner & it also gave me room for the greeting. The center panel is up on fun foam & I added a  narrow die cut frame behind it on the large pink layer.

Here are the Copics I used & I also used a few Prismacolor Pencils to deepen the shadows:

Happy New Year & welcome to 2020! I made this for the Splitcoaststampers Fan Club January 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. 
For my card, I started w/ a die cut piece of tan c/s, then took a wide, flat paintbrush & dry brushed a combo of white, white glimmer & gold glimmer acrylic paints vertically down the panel. When it dried, I put it into my Misti & stamped the wood bg first w/ the desert sand ink then again using Brilliance lightning black.  The ivory circle has the greeting gold embossed on it & edged w/ a gold leaf pen. The dk green circle was stamped w/ the lovely wreath image (& yes..it was a little hard to see the black ink on the dk green bg!) & colored w/ Prismacolor Pencils. I love the gold Prisma pencil on the dk green! I cut around a few of the gold berries & lifted them on top of the greeting circle. A couple of die cut holly were added under the circles. I thought the white card front looked a little too bright so I sponged it w/ Distress antique linen before attaching everything.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
