Red Ornament cu 07008
CAS-Favorite   Weekly-Favorite
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). 
Red Ornament 07009
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.

A big Congrats to Myrna, the newest Featured Stamper (FS411)!What a wonderful gallery she has! After much browsing, I chose THIS to case. I kept the winter theme w/ the little house, but I used different images, different colors, made my scene cover the whole front, and used a different die cut topper. 

After stamping the silhouette couple, trees and cabin, I extended the snow lines a bit with a Micron pen then colored in the cabin, masked off the snow and sponged in the pink & blue for the sky. I colored in the cabin and added some stickles for the sparkle on the snow. After I die cut the blue frame, I added a black die cut curved border for the top and used some left over narrow black strips to “edge” the inside of the blue frame. The finished card is 5.50 x 4.25 and these are the Copics I used.

Holiday Red cu 05296
Weekly-Favorite
Today’s Inspiration Challenge (IC471) is for one of my favorite sites…Pendleton! We order from them frequently. For my first card, I chose THIS for inspiration. And since I really needed a couple of quick cards my hubby could send for business, both are clean & simple, using mostly (or all) die cuts. 

Holiday Red 05294
After die cutting then assembling the oval, rectangle & crochet border, the greeting was die cut out of white & added on top. The holly on the two corners is the only stamped, colored & fussy cut addition. The finished card is 5.50 x 4.25 and these are the Copics I used for the holly.

Holiday Trees 05269
This card was inspired by THIS Pendleton item and took only about half an hour to make 🙂 No stamping…it’s entirely die cuts. The red/white polka dot is from a box of blank Christmas cards and the tree paper is from a 6×6 paper pad. I backed the die cut words w/ a scrap of textured white I had so they would show up better.

I’m adding one more card to this post for a challenge today for Virtual Stamp Night on Splitcoast. This is for Sabrina’s VSNDEC14E Get Your Skates On!

Let it Snow 04170
This ice skates image is such a pretty one. On winter cards, I always look for ways to use it because I like it so much. And I think with the iced over pond in this image, they fit perfectly. I added some tops of pine trees in front of it so it would look like you’re seeing it through a window. And one of my favorite things…a pink winter sky. A few snowflakes, some sparkly stickles and the fun greeting finish it all. The card is 4.25 x 5.50 and these are the Copics I used.
