For my second week as a Guest Designer on the Color Challenge (CC774), the colors are a lt blue, dk blue & white. Very clean, crisp colors! I don’t have the exact colors so I came as close as I could.

I love this tall coneflower die & I thought it would be great in white, so I die cut a circular window behind it, framed it w/ a stitched circle then created a blue bg to put in the window. Using a lt blue, dk blue & white acrylic paint, I dry brushed them across the card stock, then sprinkled on some glitter before some of it had dried. Acrylic paint dries so fast that it only took in some streaks which I think looks great IRL. The greeting was heat embossed in white on the dk blue strip & I added a few clear sequins.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

It’s my pleasure to host the Splitcoast Inspiration Challenge this week & we’re headed to a lovely site that also has an awesome Pinterest Board..Mackenzie-Childs. For my card, I was inspired by THIS wreath.
I really loved the gorgeous wreath so I went for a totally silver & white combo. I wanted a bigger wreath circle than the one in the wreath set, so I used a couple of circle dies for my wreath base. I die cut all the ‘greenery’ & sm. snowflake out of metallic silver &/or silver glitter papers. The poinsettias were die cut out of white glitter paper & the 3 little cardinals out of silver mirror paper. I used some thin silver cord to twine around the wreath & made a loopy bow for the top of the wreath. The greeting is from a large frame greeting, but I didn’t ink the frame part. Since my wreath is good size, the card is also. It measures 6.5 x 5 so it fits in an A7 envelope. The white bg also is larger than the A2 sized rectangle die so I had to use my die resizing/extending technique to make it larger. I thought the sides looked a little bare so I added a couple of strips of silver mirror paper to each side.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

A big congrats to Krista, the newest Featured Stamper (FS668) on Splitcoast! She has a wonderful gallery & there are many I wanted to chose, but I kept coming back to THIS card. I like the plaid, the trees & the layout, so I kept those, but I used different stamps, different dies & different papers.

After die cutting the base layers, I used an older Christmas pad of papers for the trio of trees & die cut them. There are actually 3 sizes of these trees, but I only used the largest & 2 of the middle size. To make the gold glitter backing layers, I die cut 2 for each tree & cut one down the middle, spread it to either side of the top tree, then used the second one for the lower section. I attached these trees to die cut pieces of card board for lift & strength. The gold glitter paper is from a roll of wrapping paper. For the snowflakes, I glued more of the wrapping paper to card stock before die cutting them. The greeting was white embossed on the faintly patterned red paper. 

Thanks so much for stopping by!
