For the Splitcoast Inspiration Challenge we’re visiting Grandin Road & their Pinterest Board where I found THIS lovely clock image.

My card, I used a new clock stencil & sponged the reds & greens thru it. I used black soot to sponge the clock hands on it. After die cutting it twice w/ a pair of circle dies, I coasted the outer ring w/ gold ink & gold heat embossed it before putting it back. The greeting was also gold embossed using two greetings I put together. The pine green panel the greeting is on was die cut & I made it narrower by moving one side of the die in & cutting that side again. It’s bordered w/ narrow strips of mirror gold on either side.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

A big congrats to Amy, the newest Featured Stamper (FS774) on Splitcoast! She has a wonderful gallery & I chose THIS card to case. I kept the dog/doghouse Christmas theme, but used all dies & a different layout & colors on mine. I’m also combining this w/ the Splitcoaststampers Fan Club December Christmas Challenge!  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.

For my doggy Christmas card, I die cut all the pieces for the dog, house, & little Christmas items out of scraps of different colored card stock & put them all together. I added a snowy roofline & chimney w/ smoke to the roof & perched a little bird on there, as well. Only 1 side of a lg scallop die was used for the green trim down the side of the narrow red panel. The dog & house are popped up a bit w/ foam.

It’s my pleasure to host the Splitcoast Inspiration Challenge (IC835) this week  & we’re visiting Touch of Class & their Pinterest Board. THIS is the picture that inspired my card.

My southwest Christmas card is pretty easy to make. I die cut the sun out of pale yellow, the sandy hills out of tan, the mountains out of brown & the cactus out of a couple of shades of green. I sponged the edges to give them some depth then added the tiny Christmas lights to a couple of the cactus & used a gold gel pen to connect them. All of the scenery is attached to a pale grey bg.

so much for stopping by!
