Welcome to February!  And it’s time for the Splitcoaststampers Fan Club Feb.  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 also combining this w/ the Inspiration Challenge & THIS was my inspiration.

For my Christmas card, I die cut the slimline scallop die, took the center pieces out, then put the frame part into my Misti & stamped the diagonal stripe w/ red ink. Then I die cut all the reindeer, birds & gnomes in different colors & put them all together. I added a red layer behind the candy stripe front & popped up the gnome couple & reindeer.

Here are the Copics I used on the reindeer. I forgot to stick in the G19 I used on the scarf of the reindeer on the left.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

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:

For the Inspiration Challenge (IC780), we’re headed to Cute Tape. They have lots of cute washi tapes, & I chose THIS for my inspiration. The grid pattern reminded me of the stamp I used for the background so I built my card around it.

The large bg image was put into my Misti & inked first w/ a combination of the lt blue & lt teal inks. Then I wiped that ink off, & dabbed white pigment on in spots & stamped again. It was coated w/ a clear, sparkly powder & heat embossed. For the greeting circle, I stamped it w/ a dk blue pigment ink & the circle frame around it, I used a teal pigment ink. Both were heat embossed w/ the same powder. For the line of trees, after die cutting, I took the white ink & smooshed it over the trees & heat embossed. I die cut a bunch of the stitched hills & the colored up gnomes then put it all together.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
