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!

For the Splitcoast Inspiration Challenge (IC733), we’re headed to Birch Lane. After much browsing, I chose THIS picture for my inspiration. I loved the shiny silver starfish & thought stars would be great for a New Year’s card.

Only 5 more days until Christmas! Are you ready? I will be as soon as the last few gifts I ordered arrive. Seems like there are always a few stragglers. When you order, it says ‘will ship tomorrow!’. Then a few days later, it’s still sitting there. The tracking number they email shows “carrier awaiting receipt” or something. I don’t call that ‘on it’s way’. That sounds kind of like Pre-K. Not kindergarten yet, but not nursery school. So I’m gathering it’s not really shipped yet. Bummer!

So while my packages are in Pre-K, I have a New Year’s card to share. I don’t make a lot of cards just for New Year’s..since I feel the wishes are already included in the Christmas card. But like the tags I made last week, I’m making one this year. The big greeting was silver embossed on a circle die cut. Then I made a couple of star cut outs on the white panel. Die cut smaller stars out of white & silver to have sit inside. The front & stars are elevated a bit w/ some fun foam & I added some silver cord to hang the stars. 

I saw a question on a FB group last week where someone asked if anyone still had a paper crimper & if they still use it. I said I did, so I guess I had to prove it by using it on the metallic silver band & circle.  I think you can see a little of the shine of the silver on the pic below. The last little outline star was left over after cutting the stars, so I silver embossed it & added it.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a very Merry Christmas!

It’s my pleasure to host the Splitcoast Featured Stamper Challenge (FS671), so a big congrats to Lisa! She has a wonderful gallery & I was inspired by THIS card. I kept the snowman & colors but made mine into a trio of gift tags instead of a card. I used a few other images, as well.

I hope you’re ready for the holidays! I’m about 95% there. Almost all of my presents have been sent, almost all of the cards mailed & I was actually early getting the tree & decorations up. Since I don’t need any more Christmas cards, I thought a few Christmas tags would be helpful. I love Christmas tags & every year I vow to make some, but hardly ever have the time. I also love Prismacolor Pencils on kraft so I’m combining those two. Tags are little quicker to make than cards but like potato chips, you can never have just one. So I picked three images that would fit on the tags, stamped & colored w/ the Prismas, then added a little detail die cutting on the bottom edges. It’s easy & to me, dresses them up a bit. Plus there’s plenty of room on the backside to write To & From.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
