I made these for the Splitcoaststampers Fan Club June Christmas Challenge! I’ve been having so much fun being a part of the challenge 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.
This was a lot of fun to make. It took a little engineering w/ the light string image but I think it accurately represents what has surely happened to us all at one time or another. And if I could have gotten away w/ it, I would have totally left them like this & called it a day. This tangled mess of lights is one reason my tree is now one of those that comes w/ lights already on it, lol. I used a stamp a ma jig to position the light string into the chaotic mess it is then colored it & added the plug on the side. I stamped just a few pine branches & 1 ornament to give the impression of the unlit tree off to the side. The greeting was made up of little die cut letters. A while back, I saw one of those hand drawn joke cards w/ this idea & thought I could create something similar. 

Here are the Copics I used.

Supplies:

Stamps: DRS DesignsChristmas Light String, Pine Bough, Ornaments Galore
Paper: Staples 110# white, pine green
Ink: Memento tuxedo black
Accessories: Copic markers, Lil’ Inker Stitched Rectangles dies, Sizzix celebration words dies, Copic mulitliner pen


And just because I bought this set on clearance over a year ago & have never used it…I made a second card. Very easy since the stamps & matching dies pretty much do all the work. Stamped the whole image on the sand card stock, then again several more times on white, colored them, die cut them & popped the layers up on the original. 

Supplies:

Stamps: Sizzix Tree Blueprint (stamp/die combo)
Paper: Staples 110# white, sand
Ink: Memento tuxedo black
Accessories: Copic markers, MFT diagonal stitched rectangle dies

The Sketch Challenge (SC697), is so clean & simple..basically just a slash coming in from the lower side. So for that slash, I have a partial pencil. I did flip the sketch & lay it horizontally & somehow the downward slash became an upward one. Oh well. 

This is definitely one of, if not THE simplist cards I’ve ever made. A lot of open white space tends to make me nervous.  This Pencil image is technically, supposed to go on the back of the card, but I couldn’t get this idea out of my head to put it on the front. To me, it looks made to go w/ the Dropping a Line, greeting. 

To make it, I die cut the white panel, then stamped the greeting & part of the pencil then colored them. I added some coloring under the greeting to make it slightly dimensional looking. Then I embossed the left side w/ part of an embossing folder. Lucky for me I had the pencil border folder & even luckier, I could find it! After embossing, I lightly rubbed a turquoise Prismacolor pencil over the raised lines.

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

I was able to combine 2 Splitcoast challenges with this card…the Technique (TLC690 -make a doodled frame) & the Clean & Simple (CAS481 – teacher or grad card). 

While I was pondering the doodled frame, I thought hmmm..I could make the greeting look like a chalkboard & white emboss the greeting. Then doodle a frame on it & around it.

After I white embossed the greeting & die cut it, I used the white pen to doodle the inside frame & the black pen to doodle the frame outside. The teacher tools were colored & fussy cut. The white hearts are part of the greeting on the inside & I inked just them & stamped them. I didn’t want to heat emboss them, so I used the white paint pen to make them stand out more.

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