Happy New Year & welcome to 2020! I made this for the Splitcoaststampers Fan Club January Christmas Challenge. We have a brand new year of 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. 
For my card, I started w/ a die cut piece of tan c/s, then took a wide, flat paintbrush & dry brushed a combo of white, white glimmer & gold glimmer acrylic paints vertically down the panel. When it dried, I put it into my Misti & stamped the wood bg first w/ the desert sand ink then again using Brilliance lightning black.  The ivory circle has the greeting gold embossed on it & edged w/ a gold leaf pen. The dk green circle was stamped w/ the lovely wreath image (& was a little hard to see the black ink on the dk green bg!) & colored w/ Prismacolor Pencils. I love the gold Prisma pencil on the dk green! I cut around a few of the gold berries & lifted them on top of the greeting circle. A couple of die cut holly were added under the circles. I thought the white card front looked a little too bright so I sponged it w/ Distress antique linen before attaching everything.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Such lovely ribbons on the Inspiration Site, Renaissance Ribbons! I was inspired by THIS ribbon. 

I’ve been on a Prismacolor Pencil streak lately & since the Misti came out, I’ve been rediscovering how lovely the pencils are to use. For quite a while, I avoided them because the fine details sometimes were lost when using pencils. Now I can just stamp again after I’ve finished coloring, to bring them back. I really love how they look on different colors of card. This is a dark charcoal grey looks on the blue side here, but IRL, it looks much more grey to me. After coloring the flowers, I die cut using my out of the box technique. 

The horizontal band was stamped w/ a distressed circles bg using the Distress oxide ink. At first, I thought the spun sugar would be the color to match, but after trying it & several others, I discovered the Victorian velvet was perfect on this color c/s. That’s one of the reasons I always try to save a few scraps of c/s I can do test runs of colors on them. If I don’t have a scrap, then I’ll use the back side of the piece I’m going to use. one will ever see the other side 😉 On the greeting circle, I used the Misti again, to stamp it first w/ the oxide ink then shifted it slightly, & stamped it again in black. It’s subtle, but gives it a nice shadow.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a Happy New Year!

For the Color Challenge (CC765) on Splitcoast, the colors are a dk red, dk green & a lt green. I thought these colors were perfect for these cute elf shoes.

My card is fairly CAS, the only thing slightly tricky I did was to rearrange the feet a bit on the center one. I made a mask first & put them where I wanted, removed the right one & stamped the left. It left some blanks where I wanted them. Then I stamped the left one. The other pairs of shoes were stamped on either side then everything was colored. 

The top envelope flap shaped panel was die cut along w/ a red patterned paper border, then I stamped part of the fairly large greeting (there is more on top & underneath, but I masked these off w/ scotch tape).

Here are the Copics I used.
