Welcome to January 2022!  And it’s time for the Splitcoaststampers Fan Club January Christmas Challenge! You’ll need to be Fan Club member but that’s easy…just click the blue link to find out how. Thank you, Stacy, my friend, for 10 yrs of wonderful challenges! We’re all sad to see you go, & since this will also be my last on this challenge, I wanted to make sure to honor you.

I chose a non-Christmas card to case..Big Blooms 4 by Twinshappy at Splitcoaststampers lovely card of yours. The angle is such a great detail, so I kept it. I did move the greeting to the main panel & left off the embossing. I used the Color Fuse inks to stamp some pinecones, greenery & berries in the lower left corner & a few extra that I die cut w/ the matching dies. I used the long edge of the stitched border die to cut the corner off then added a scallop edge underneath it. The extra images were popped up above the angled cut.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

For the Splitcoast Inspiration Challenge (IC837), we’re visiting Emerlyn Closet & their Pinterest Board, where I found THIS lovely image.

For my slimline card, I started w/ a panel of turquoise which I spritzed w/ bleach, then die cut. The pine boughs were stamped all down the left side & colored in w/ Copics. The pinecones, leaves & berries were stamped on white, colored & die cut w/ their matching dies. When I started to arrange them on top of the pine boughs, the narrow white outline around them seemed too bright. Instead of trimming them all, I took a Copic close to the bg color & went around the edges to make them blend in a little better. A fine line black marker was used to draw the branches to the berries. The cones, leaves & some of the berries were popped up a bit for dimension. I used a white Posca paint pen to add “snow” to the images. For the greeting, I used the same die as the turquoise panel to get the width, but moved the top & bottom in to make it much narrower, height-wise.

These are the Copics I used:

A big congrats to embee, the newest Featured Stamper(FS775)! She has a lovely gallery & I chose THIS to case. I kept the layout but changed most everything else. I went from rainbow colors to just red & green, birthday to Christmas, & A2 to slimline.

For my card, I stamped, colored & cut out the elf shoes & also a long white panel. I used my resizing tech to make the panel a little bit longer than it normally would be. I used the same tech to cut the red & green sections I attached to the white panel. These were some papers I had spritzed w/ bleach a long time ago & I thought it added a bit of visual texture to the plain colors. After they were attached, I dry embossed across the top w/ a snowflake border folder. The greeting was stamped & a few glittery die cut snowflakes were added. Some of the elf shoes were popped up a bit before attaching.

Here are the Copics I used:
