Welcome to November!  And it’s time for the Splitcoaststampers Fan Club November 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. Hint..I’m really loving the new theme for this year. I’m a little bit early for the Christmas Challenge because I’m combining it w/ the Featured Stamper Challenge (FS769) & a big congrats to Jocelyn! She has a beautiful gallery & I chose THIS card to case. I kept the slimline Christmas design but used different images, dies & colors. I also used a stencil instead of designer paper.


For my card, I die cut the the white panels & used a new stencil on the smaller layer, with turquoise, lavender & lt blue inks. A narrow turquoise panel was added behind it & the gnome & gift box were colored & die cut w/ their matching dies. A craft knife was used to cut a slit at the top of the box so I could insert the gnome inside & I added fun foam behind to pop it up. The greeting was split above & below & I added 3 colored to match (they were clear & I used some of the same Copics to color them) gems on the top right & some iridescent stars sprinkled around the stenciling.

Here are the Copics I used:

A big congrats to Sherri, the newest Featured Stamper (FS768) on Splitcoast! She has a wonderful gallery & I chose THIS card to case. I kept the pair of gnomes & most of the colors, but used different images & dies, turned mine horizontal & made it a Christmas card.

For my card, after coloring & die cutting the gnomes & presents, & also cut some fun foam using the same dies to pop them up. The Happy die cut word was layered twice & the red shadow was also backed w/ fun foam. I put an extra piece of foam behind the sign the gnome on the left is holding.

Welcome to October!  And it’s time for the Splitcoaststampers Fan Club October 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. Hint..I’m really loving the new theme for this year.

For my cute gnome card, I colored & die cut the gnome & stamped the box onto another piece & colored it. I decided to cut a slit in the box to insert the gnome rather than masking & stamping the gnome inside the box. Here are a couple of pics showing the process.

I used a craft knife to cut along the lines on the top of the box.

You can see the opening I created.

The gnome is now inside the box!

On the rectangle on the right, I stamped the snowflakes w/ silver ink & heat embossed w/ a clear, sparkly powder. Both rectangles were backed by narrow layers of red & green. The clear star gems were added & I used a red Copic to color the center one.
