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!

We have a fun Ornament Pinterest Board for the Splitcoast Inspiration Challenge (IC730) this week. I was inspired by THIS cute snowman ornament.

After coloring my snowman, I used my out of the box technique & a stitched square die to cut him out. After I added a piece of green dp, I attached the double stacked die cut J, Y & snowflake down the side. A white scallop frame & a pair of die cut cardinals were added along w/ a red crystal in the center of the snowflake.

Here are the Copics I used:

It’s my pleasure to host the Splitcoast Inspiration Challenge (IC726) this week & we’re going to Acorn. They have a lot of lovely things & I was inspired by THIS top. I like the red w/ the white snowflakes & cute little Santas at the bottom. 

For my version, I used 3 of these cute little gnomes…stamped (masking the center one), colored then die cut them. I fussy cut the top part away so I could put them on top of a red panel where I heat embossed the snowflake frame. I used white ink & a sparkly white powder.  The greeting was also embossed onto a piece of black & added underneath.

Here are the Copics I used.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
