Welcome to April & to the Splitcoaststampers Fan Club April Christmas Challenge! I’m part of the challenge team again this year & the bonus is I’ll have a bunch of Christmas cards finished in plenty of time for Christmas this year. 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.

For my Christmas Wishes card, I used an embossing folder on the white bg, then paper pieced some strips for a faux woven bg. I used part of a box of Christmas cards I bought that are supposed to have a picture inserted so the entire back is 5×7 piece of this heavy weight Christmas print w/ little red foil accents. After I glued them, I embossed it all again.  The rest was just die cutting the holly out of green glitter card, the Wishes & backing oval out of red glitter card, then attaching a red foil frame over the bg. 

Here’s the inside.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Stamps: Rubbernecker Stamps: Have Yourself

A big congrats to Rochelle, the newest Featured Stamper (FS557)! She has a sweet gallery & after browsing, I chose THIS to case. I kept the Christmas snow globe but left off the shaker & used different images & dies.


I love this big snow globe and the Christmas Village images fit perfectly inside it. Just had to decide which ones to use. Finally decided on the lovely Gazebo &  Lamp Post & added a couple more trees for balance. After stamping the globe, I die cut a circle almost the same size out of copy paper & used the left over as a reverse mask to stamp the images inside & keep them from going out of the edges.

After coloring everything, I used a white gel pen to add snow where I wanted it &  then some stickles for sparkle. The Triple Holly was fussy cut &  added & the greeting was stamped on the red & I used the white gel pen to highlight the letters. 

Here’s a look at the inside & below it are the Copics I used.

For  Lee’s VSN Challenge (VSNDEC14N) on Splitcoast, I made this fun Christmas card. Aren’t these reindeer cute? it seems a perfect time for them to load up on their magic grain. We don’t want them to fall out of the sky on their Christmas eve ride!  I stamped the middle one, masked him then stamped the other two beside him. I knew I wanted to make him into Rudolph so I put him out front. After coloring them & the background, I stamped the snow bg using sky blue ink. The Merry Christmaswas stamped in red and I cut an arced banner & attached two fussy cut holly bunches on either side. I used a stamp-a-ma-jig to place the From All greeting and made the two lines a bit closer together then colored in the letters. A single holly berry was stamped & fussy cut to make Rudolph’s nose then I added a little red stickles to it and star dust stickles to the magic grain.

The finished card is 5.50 x 4.25 and these are the Copics I used.
