Night Gazebo cu 07899
Today’s Color Challenge (CC560) on Splitcoast is navy & lt blue. I love navy & white for Christmas/winter cards & adding a little lt blue seemed perfect. 
Night Gazebo 07898
This was a fairly simple card..a little white embossing of the greeting 
snowflakes on the navy background, a little dry embossed snow hill, an into the window gazebo w/ a couple of lamp posts and some more white embossing on the bottom of the frame. Nothing too hard or time consuming. I really like the look of white embossing on navy…to me it just looks sharp & clean. I also added a little tree inside the gazebo from the Christmas Village 4 in 1 & added some red ornament dots on it. The white frame is elevated just a bit from the lt blue layer.

Thanks so much for stopping by! If you haven’t, head on over and check out the DRS Thursday Challenge…this week, Tags! Make a tag or have one on your project. DRS images are not required & there’s a nice prize up for grabs.

A big congrats to Jo, the newest Featured Stamper (FS458) on Splitcoast! She has such a lovely gallery & I chose THIS to case. I kept the colors & fall theme, but I used different images, a little different layout. 
Autumn Tree 07814
To make my clean & fairly simple card, instead of having a long greeting flag across the bottom like Jo has, I used a layout I’ve used many times because I just love the narrow panel. Usually I’ll inset it, like a window, but this time I thought I’d change it up & have it on top. I cut all the panels first & attached the narrow one w/ temporary adhesive, then stamped the tree. I removed the long narrow panel & stamped the leaves (using the splatter bg) w/ the four colors of distress ink. The pile of leaves was stamped at the bottom & colored w/the same inks & I added the greeting. Then I added a piece of card board behind the narrow panel & put it back.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Fall Scarecrow on Wall cu07583
The Sketch Challenge (SC565) on Splitcoast is an easy one. I did tweak it a bit by flipping it upside down & using the long rock fence in place of a separate horizontal band. So while the sketch is easy, my card was a bit more difficult due to all the masking I had to do. This is also for Kathleen’s HYCCT1512, Make it Tasty. Plenty of tasty pumpkins on my card!
Fall Scarecrow on Wall 07582
This fall scene is all on one layer but the rock fence, the scarecrow, the pumpkins & the crow on the branch are all separate images. The scarecrow & pumpkins were stamped first, masked, then the wall was stamped. I had to do the wall twice because the wall image has a gate but I wanted to leave that part out. Then the crow was stamped. I used a reverse circle mask & sponged in the sun & colored everything else with Copics. Two little fussy cut leaves were added along w/ the greeting.

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