Welcome to 2021!  Are you as happy to say adios to 2020 as I am? Seriously, all I can say to 2020 is don’t let the door hit you on the way out. And it’s time for the Splitcoaststampers Fan Club Jan 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.

My card is pretty easy…I stamped the piggy w/ presents onto kraft & colored it in using Prismacolor pencils. I really love the look of Prismas on kraft & especially when paired w/ a bit of white. The snowflakes were stamped on the large kraft layer using Distress picket fence ink then I added a white layer behind piggy & a scalloped edge down the left.
Here’s the inside. I figured the greetings would work well for Christmas, New Year’s or any winter holiday.


Thanks so much for stopping by!

A big congrats to Leslie, the newest Featured Stamper (FS720) on Splitcoast! She has such a wonderful gallery & I chose THIS card to case. I kept the snowman & snowflakes but I used different images & dies & made a special window opening for my snowman. I also added a greeting.

For my snowman, after coloring & cutting him out, I wanted to try a little something extra for the window I wanted to put him into. I took a smallish rectangle die but cut it on an angle & not all the way to the bottom (see the pics below for step by step).


I wanted a stitched & curved border so this is how I did that.

And the back side. The die is placed UNDER the sides so it won’t cut those.


That worked really well! I cut another small piece of stitched hill & attached it behind this one. Then I had the (not so) brilliant idea to add the little zigzag frame. I like it, but you can’t really tell what I did w/ the angled cut now. Oh well! And then I dropped the BG10 marker on the frame, so I colored the whole thing w/ it. That part actually worked…now it shows up better. The snowman was popped up a bit & a small piece of snowflake paper was added behind him. Then the greeting was added & the snowflakes were stamped w/ the pale aqua ink.



Here are the Copics I used on Mr. Snowman.

For my card, I die cut the new Slimline die in white. I die cut two of the cabin & fireplace dies..one in white & one in white glitter, along w/ the trees in white glitter. Then I put them all inside the little frames & stamped only a small part of the greeting on the frame.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
