Welcome to October!  And it’s time for the Splitcoaststampers Fan Club Oct Christmas Challenge! We have a year of new 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.

I admit I had a little trouble with this. I started w/ a piece of black card stock & inked the inside of the embossing folder w/ Versamark & first dry embossed it then heat embossed w/ a clear, sparkly powder. To me, the words didn’t really show up enough, so I inked over the raised letters w/ white pigment ink & heat embossed it again w/ white powder. It’s still really sparkly & it has a snowy, distressed look. The smaller black panel was die cut & dry embossed w/ the same folder. The ornaments were die cut once out of silver glitter paper & again in black. I pieced the two together then used a black Wink of Stella on the black pieces. The Noel was also die cut out of the silver glitter paper.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Today instead of making a tag, I put a tag on my ornament on my Christmas card. I really love this big, ornate ornament die so I cut it & the bow out of a metallic gold card stock, then backed the ornament w/ a white circle die cut.  The little tag was die cut then I gold embossed the small Christmas on it & edged it w/ a gold Krylon pen.

The paper on the left was die cut using one of the smaller matting basics then I used a pierced rectangle on it. The rectangles were not the same size so I had to move it around & do 2 sides at a time to get the piercing on it. I added a couple of strips of metallic gold on either side & then strip of another pattern of the same paper on the right of them. The large white bg was die cut w/ the largest pierced rectangle & I gold embossed the Merry Merry down the side. 

Here’s the inside using some left over pieces. The Merry Merry was stamped repeatedly on the white piece using Brilliance gold.

Joy Ornaments cu 07120 Today’s Free for All Challenge (F4A304) is to use just one word. Got it! Actually, I started this card a long time ago for the SC553 sketch challenge & since the parts were already colored & cut out, I just went ahead & finished it. Not a moment too soon, either. I still have a week until Christmas & I don’t want to rush into anything, lol.

After stamping & coloring the Triple Ornaments, I stamped the center & right ones again on another piece, colored & fussy cut. The blue one is elevated a little, and the red one a little bit more. The Joy  was stamped & the original image has a cute little mouse sitting in the lower crook of the J so I wiped the ink off that part & used a black Micron pen to finish off the letter. It was colored & fussy cut to add on top of the black bar. The sketch had a semi circle element above the top line, so I used a silver half circle.

I added a silver die cut strip on top of the angled red piece on the left . The finished card is 4.25 x 5.50 & here are the Copics I used.
