Welcome to June!  And it’s time for the Splitcoaststampers Fan Club June 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.

For my fairly CAS Christmas card, I put the stripe bg image into my Misti, inked it first w/ Versamark, then w/ the crimson dye ink. I knew I wanted to heat emboss it so using the Versamark under the dye ink gives it a little more open time. I used a very sparkly red tinsel powder & IRL this card is soooo sparkly! The stripes are actually horizontal on the image so I turned my panel to have them diagonal, then turned it again to stamp them going the other way.

The big greeting was also embossed in the same manner & layered onto a slightly larger, red scallop circle. The white top section was cut w/ a center angled die & I added a red scallop die cut border under it, but the lg greeting circle covered up most of it.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Welcome to May!  And it’s time for the Splitcoaststampers Fan Club May 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.

My card started w/ the little square of blue watercolor bg. I wish I had made more of it, but this was all I had left of this particular one. So I framed w/ a mirror gold square frame & added some die cut stars & moon on it. The gold glitter trees & deer were die cut out of some gold glitter wrapping paper. For the moon, I did cut one out of the gold glitter & another out of white. Then I placed the white one back in the die, moved over a bit, to trim a little more of it so the gold glitter would show around the edges. The greeting was gold embossed & I used gold leafing pen to edge the white panel before attaching it to the card.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

For my 3rd week as a Guest Designer for the Color Challenge (CC775), we have a lavender, purple & mint green color combo w/ the dessert option of making a winter card. Since it’s been below freezing all day here & lows in the mid teens, I think it feels pretty much like this poor bear & his little bird friend look. 

After coloring the bear in the tree, I added the cute little bird (from another winter image) on one of the branches. It was good thing the SU neutrals are allowed, because I made liberal use of the browns, grays & merlot colors! For the bg, I die cut some stitched hills out of scratch paper & used them to sponge in the snow hills & purple/lavender sky. 

After it was sponged, I dry embossed it w/ a snowfall folder & added stickles to the snow. I used the purple inks to sponge the greeting die cut.

Here are the Copics I used, You can see by all the different greens & blue greens, I had to work to get that mint color for the hat & scarf. The purple shades were used just on the bg of the image circle. I didn’t feel like cutting a mask, lol, so I just used the Copics to mimic the sponging I did on the lg background.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
