For the Splitcoast Inspiration Challenge (IC733), we’re headed to Birch Lane. After much browsing, I chose THIS picture for my inspiration. I loved the shiny silver starfish & thought stars would be great for a New Year’s card.

Only 5 more days until Christmas! Are you ready? I will be as soon as the last few gifts I ordered arrive. Seems like there are always a few stragglers. When you order, it says ‘will ship tomorrow!’. Then a few days later, it’s still sitting there. The tracking number they email shows “carrier awaiting receipt” or something. I don’t call that ‘on it’s way’. That sounds kind of like Pre-K. Not kindergarten yet, but not nursery school. So I’m gathering it’s not really shipped yet. Bummer!

So while my packages are in Pre-K, I have a New Year’s card to share. I don’t make a lot of cards just for New Year’s..since I feel the wishes are already included in the Christmas card. But like the tags I made last week, I’m making one this year. The big greeting was silver embossed on a circle die cut. Then I made a couple of star cut outs on the white panel. Die cut smaller stars out of white & silver to have sit inside. The front & stars are elevated a bit w/ some fun foam & I added some silver cord to hang the stars. 

I saw a question on a FB group last week where someone asked if anyone still had a paper crimper & if they still use it. I said I did, so I guess I had to prove it by using it on the metallic silver band & circle.  I think you can see a little of the shine of the silver on the pic below. The last little outline star was left over after cutting the stars, so I silver embossed it & added it.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a very Merry Christmas!

Congrats to Kari, the newest Featured Stamper (FS661) on Splitcoast! She has lovely, growing gallery & I chose THIS card as my inspiration. I kept the western theme & framed boxes, but I used different images & colors, different layout & changed it from a cowgirl to a cowboy.

For my version, I made a western themed birthday card. Originally, the 3 squares were going to be in a line down one side. But in order to have this much of the images in the square, it made them too big to stack. So the Cowboy was moved to his own side &  put on top instead of inside a cut out square. 

With the layout having so much going on, I kept the color palette simple & stuck to 2 colors, since most guys don’t want things too fussy, anyway. I added a piece of a barbed wire die cut (hey, guys don’t really “get” ribbon & I’m pretty sure the butterflies like Kari used, would be wasted on them, lol) & put the greeting under the cowboy.

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

For the Color Challenge (CC746) on Splitcoast, we have a really bright pink, pale pink & apple green. I’ve had this stamped Foxglove image sitting around for a long time. I don’t have the exact colors but I think I came close. 

After coloring & die cutting the foxglove, I die cut a bunch of crochet borders out of the white, pinks & greens then colored just the very edges of some of them. I attached them to the card front, offsetting each row. To give the image a bit of separation from the bg, I added an embossed white panel behind it.

These are the Copics I used:
