For the Splitcoast Inspiration Challenge (IC781), we’re headed to Hello Lucky, where I found THIS cute picture.

My frosty friends were stamped, starting w/ Santa, then masked as I went to stamp them in the pyramid. There are matching dies, I just didn’t use them this time. The string of lights & cute little tree & present were added, then everything was colored & I added some stitched snow banks at the bottom. A little stickles was added for sparkle.

Here are the Copics I used:

Welcome to July & to the Splitcoaststampers Fan Club July Christmas Challenge! 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 little Penguin Carolers (& 1 reindeer wannabe), I colored them & die cut w/ the matching die. I also die cut the antlers (from a deer die) to place on the center penguin. From the look he’s getting from the penguin on the left, I don’t think he’s buying the reindeer transformation, lol. After die cutting the circle out of the top of the front panel, I stamped the ornament branch on top of the circle & also on a separate circle. I masked the tiny ornament & sponged some streaks of Distress ink over it. 

Here are the Copics I used. (Sorry..I forgot to take a pic of the inside.)

Such a wonderful inspiration site Stacy chose! I’m sure a lot of people are familiar w/ Shutterstock..they have so many fabulous photos & clip art. I was inspired by THIS picture. I started w/ a new set from North Coast Creations w/ cute little critters & my card just evolved into what you see.

After stamping & coloring the polar bear family, I added a stitched circle frame then a stitched rectangle frame w/ a smaller stitched rectangle window on top of it. I die cut some white & snowflake paper hills, added them to the bottom & then attached my little fussy cut penguin. The greeting was die cut & colored w/ Copics as well as the narrow blue frame around everything.

Here’s a look at the inside & below it are the Copics I used. For the snowflakes, I punched some different sized snowflakes in a piece of scrap paper & used it as a stencil to sponge on the ink
