All Us Reindeer 05049
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.

Holiday Red cu 05296
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.

Julie Warner -

A big CONGRATS to Allison, the Featured Stamper (FS303) on Splitcoast this week! What a super gallery she has! After much browsing, I kept coming back to her Celebrate the Season card. I kept the Christmas theme, the plaid and layout but I used different images, made my own plaid background (instead of using designer paper) and used a different die cut for my frame.

The images are all from DRS Designs. I stamped the main image twice on white card stock, colored them w/ Copics and cut out the just the holly leaves on one to attach on top of the matching area on the base image. After die cutting my frame, I used a Copic marker to add some color inbetween the two dies on the raised area.

I used the plaid maker stamps and inks and a red Tombow marker to make my plaid background.  The cut out image was attached on top of my frame w/ a die cut fancy lattice behind it and a dark red piece of card stock behind it. A few punched snowflakes were added in opposite corners and my 5.50 x 4.25 card was finished.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
