made this for the Splitcoaststampers Fan Club February Christmas Challenge! I’m part of the challenge team again this year & the bonus is I’ll have a bunch of Christmas cards finished in plenty of time for Christmas this year. 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.
This stamp kind of takes the guess work out of placing the images. It’s all one big scene. All you have to decide is what colors to use. Since it has a lot of white snowy areas, I went w/ a fairly bright blue & red. After I colored it, I used a Versamark pen to go over some of the snow & heat embossed it w/ a clear, sparkly powder. For the blue layer, I colored it w/ the same blue Copics then stamped the snowy bg w/ white ink & heat embossed it w/ the same powder

Here’s the inside & Copic colors.

Such a fashionable site for the Inspiration Challenge! After much browsing, I went w/ THIS simple green & white dress. 

After I made last week’s Stained Glass Christmas card, I had the inside of the window frame left over so that’s the part I used for this card. And I added a similar fussy cut greeting & put a piece of white glitter paper behind it. I used an embossing folder on the white layer to dress it up then added the colored & fussy cut greeting. This would also be perfect for those cards you didn’t have time to send before Christmas. Or change the inside greeting to a Thank You when sending those thanks for the presents cards.  

Here’s the inside & below it are the Copics I used.

A big congrats to Melody, the newest Featured Stamper on Splitcoast! She has such a wonderful gallery & she’s such a sweet lady! I chose THIS to case. I kept the stained glass window but used different images & dies & made mine a Christmas card.

I first stamped & colored the candles at the bottom, then I dropped pools of rubbing alcohol on the top & added drops of Copic refills in blues & lavenders. I let the colors pool & mingle but kept them mostly away from the candles by not wetting that area. Then I added the arched window frame & stamped, colored & fussy cut the holly greeting oval.  Here’s a look at the inside & also the Copics I used.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
