For the Splitcoast Inspiration Challenge (IC784), we are headed to Bathhouse Soapery. They have some lovely things & I was inspired by THIS. I loved the elf legs poking out of the sugar scrub.

I’m not sure how I arrived at my card, exactly…I tried an elf shoes image, but it was too big to have them sticking out of something. So I used this cute gnome & a very large cup of cocoa. And I had to split the gnome in half to have his head show above the cup, so he’s obviously the tall gnome in his family. When I started putting it together, it looked a little blank, so I added a window & put a piece of patterned paper behind it, & some little presents below it.

Here are the Copics I used:

It’s my pleasure to host the Splitcoast Featured Stamper Challenge (FS702) this week, so a big congrats to Debra! She has a really fun & colorful gallery & I chose THIS card to case. I liked the row of images & bright colors so I kept those. I used dies instead of nutcrackers, changed it to a slimline layout & used different colors.

After die cutting the margarita/daiquiri glasses, I used a colorful shaving cream background for the actual drinks inside the glasses. I added some stickles for the salt/sugar around the rims & added them to the die cut layers. 

Thanks so much for stopping by!

I made this for the Splitcoaststampers Fan Club December Christmas Challenge! I’ve been having so much fun being a part of the challenge 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. Since I had a little trouble w/ this month’s theme, I was helped out by the Inspiration Challeng (IC678)  & THIS is the picture that inspired me. 

For my card, I used only the wine glass image of the set & I used a black & gray Tombow markers to ink it. I used gray on the outlines that would be behind other glasses & black on the rest to stamp them. I didn’t bother masking since they were clear glass & are supposed to show through each other. After doing this 7 times, I added a little color w/ Copics to the glasses then stamped half of the greeting above them. I die cut a circle out of the top layer, then added a circle frame over the opening. The rest of the greeting, a single wine glass & a sprig of holly were stamped on this layer. For embellishment, I added a die cut & colored holly & used some clear dimensional glitter paint around the circle frame. You can’t really see it, but I also added some Wink of Stella to the wine in the glasses & on the holly leaves & berries.

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