Welcome to 2021!  Are you as happy to say adios to 2020 as I am? Seriously, all I can say to 2020 is don’t let the door hit you on the way out. And it’s time for the Splitcoaststampers Fan Club Jan 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.

My card is pretty easy…I stamped the piggy w/ presents onto kraft & colored it in using Prismacolor pencils. I really love the look of Prismas on kraft & especially when paired w/ a bit of white. The snowflakes were stamped on the large kraft layer using Distress picket fence ink then I added a white layer behind piggy & a scalloped edge down the left.
Here’s the inside. I figured the greetings would work well for Christmas, New Year’s or any winter holiday.


Thanks so much for stopping by!

A big congrats to Kath, the newest Featured Stamper (FS723) on Splitcoast! She has a beautiful gallery & I chose THIS to case.  I kept the central greeting surrounded by greenery & spritzed color, but I used different images, dies & added a few layers.

For my card, I got out a stencil & used some shimmery gold, pale red & pale green sprays. I wasn’t really in love w/ the way it looked but I noticed I still had quite a bit of the shimmery spray on the stencil, so I put it face down on another piece of white card stock. Then I spritzed it a little more & used just the gold on a couple of the smaller layers. On the diamond part of the layer, I added some of the pale red spray. The pinecones, holly & berries were colored & die cut to add on the corners.

Here are the Copic I used on the images:

Congrats to Gayle, the newest Featured Stamper (FS722)! She has a lovely gallery & I chose THIS to case. I mainly went w/ the one on the left, keeping the cardinal & greenery, but I used different images & dies & used a different layout.

I stamped the lantern & colored it w/ Copics. Did a little out of the box to keep from cutting off the top of the lantern & the tip of the cardinal’s tail (trust me..birds do not like you messing w/ their tails).

On the kraft layer, I stamped the new pinecone all over w/ the Distress oxide ink but a left a space for the greeting. The pine green circle was dry embossed & I rubbed some gold rub n buff type paste over the top of it. A white gel pen was used to add some highlights to the greeting.

Here are the Copics I used:
