For the Splitcoast Inspiration Challenge (IC890), we’re visiting the Puzzle Shop & their Pinterest Board. I chose THIS puzzle for my inspiration.

On my poinsettia card, I used a big, build a poinsettia set & stamped, colored & die cut 2 of them. One of them I cut apart, & the other full poinsettia, I used a craft knife to cut around a few petals, lift them up & insert the cut apart leaves underneath. A few were tucked under the big poinsettia. It’s attached to a white layer where I stamped the greeting, then added a green scallop edge frame on top before adding the poinsettia.

The designer paper is a beautiful holly print in a new Rubbernecker paper pad.

These are the Copics I used: (note: on the full set, there are holly leaves which is where I used the greens. I didn’t add them to the card so only the reds were used.)

so much for stopping by!

It’s my pleasure to host the Splitcoast Inspiration Challenge (IC887) this week & we’re visiting Paper Heart Design & their Pinterest Boards where I was inspired by THIS color palette.

For my mini slimline card, I die cut a piece of the winter paper w/ a stitched mini slimline die & added a narrow red layer behind it. The wreath was built using die cuts from part of a wreath set, mistletoe, branches & poinsettias. Since it looked a little busy w/ the paper showing thru the wreath center, so I put back the white center from the wreath ring. The  Merry w/ shadow was popped up a bit & I used a paper crimper to crimp the red wreath hanger. Gold stickles was added on the wreath & poinsettias.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

A big congrats to Sue, the newest Featured Stamper (FS773) on Splitcoast! She has a lovely gallery & I chose THIS card to case. I loved the bright poinsettias & gold embossing so I kept those, but I used different images, dies & turned mine horizontal.

My cheerful Christmas card was done by stamping the holly berries all around the white bg then coloring them in w/ Copics. I used a pale green strip for the band across it & I had to do this in two steps: first I put it into my Misti, stamped w/ black, then colored in the leaves & holly. Since it was still in my Misti, I stamped it again using the gold ink, then coated w/ gold powder & heat embossed it. The greeting was also gold embossed. I used the smallest poinsettia die to cut my flowers, using a darker red for the bottom & slightly lighter for the top.

Here are the Copics I used:
