For the Splitcoast Inspiration Challenge (IC733), we’re headed to Birch Lane. After much browsing, I chose THIS picture for my inspiration. I loved the shiny silver starfish & thought stars would be great for a New Year’s card.

Only 5 more days until Christmas! Are you ready? I will be as soon as the last few gifts I ordered arrive. Seems like there are always a few stragglers. When you order, it says ‘will ship tomorrow!’. Then a few days later, it’s still sitting there. The tracking number they email shows “carrier awaiting receipt” or something. I don’t call that ‘on it’s way’. That sounds kind of like Pre-K. Not kindergarten yet, but not nursery school. So I’m gathering it’s not really shipped yet. Bummer!

So while my packages are in Pre-K, I have a New Year’s card to share. I don’t make a lot of cards just for New Year’s..since I feel the wishes are already included in the Christmas card. But like the tags I made last week, I’m making one this year. The big greeting was silver embossed on a circle die cut. Then I made a couple of star cut outs on the white panel. Die cut smaller stars out of white & silver to have sit inside. The front & stars are elevated a bit w/ some fun foam & I added some silver cord to hang the stars. 

I saw a question on a FB group last week where someone asked if anyone still had a paper crimper & if they still use it. I said I did, so I guess I had to prove it by using it on the metallic silver band & circle.  I think you can see a little of the shine of the silver on the pic below. The last little outline star was left over after cutting the stars, so I silver embossed it & added it.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a very Merry Christmas!

A big Congrats to Mayapple, the newest Featured Stamper (FS452) on Splitcoast! She has a really cute gallery & I chose THIS to case. I kept the basic layout & green/white combo, but I also added some holly, did a little into the window w/ the reindeer & made mine a Christmas card.

I used the matting basics dies to first cut the large white panel, stamped & colored the reindeer & North Pole, then did the into the window to cut out the inside w/ a smaller die.  I cut the inside down even smaller, stamped the greeting, then added light blue snowflakes to both white panels. A larger green layer was added behind & the fussy cut holly added in the corner. A stitched rectangle die was cut into the card front to add the stitched frame.
These are the Copics I used.

For today’s Ways to Use It Challenge (WT551), use greenery, and Hope You Can Cling To (HYCCT1501C), split the difference (have greeting split the image).

The top image on my card actually comes this way…with the greeting splitting the greenery & I added the ornament under it. After placing the greeting image in my Misti, I stamped it w/ Memento, colored with Copics,  over stamped w/ Versafine, then die cut w/ a pierced rectangle die. I didn’t want the piercing to include the band where the actual greeting is, so after using the outside die on the entire panel, I added the piercing die but only placed the upper cutting plate as far as the lower greeting band & applied pressure. I turned the image around & placed the upper cutting plate only as far as the top band. I like how it almost looks like a separate band, but it’s all one piece. The ornament was stamped the same way as the greeting, but I masked it & stamped the big starburst inside before coloring & over stamping. It was fussy cut & added to the panel.

These are the Copics I used.
