Congrats to Nancy, the newest Featured Stamper (FS670) on Splitcoast! She has a wonderful gallery & after much browsing, I chose THIS card to case. I kept the angular layout w/ the decoration but I used different images, dies, colors & made mine a Christmas card. 

My card is pretty simple & didn’t take much time. I put the winter words bg into my Misti, then stamped w/ white ink & white embossed it. Then you know, put it back into the Misti & rinse, repeat as the shampoo instructions go. (Do we really NEED instructions on shampoo??) Anyway, the top white layer was die cut & I turned a double stitch rectangle on an angle & cut out the V. Die cut all the poinsettia petals, glued them together & added half of the greeting.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

It’s my pleasure to host the Splitcoast Inspiration Challenge this week & we’re headed to a lovely site that also has an awesome Pinterest Board..Mackenzie-Childs. For my card, I was inspired by THIS wreath.
I really loved the gorgeous wreath so I went for a totally silver & white combo. I wanted a bigger wreath circle than the one in the wreath set, so I used a couple of circle dies for my wreath base. I die cut all the ‘greenery’ & sm. snowflake out of metallic silver &/or silver glitter papers. The poinsettias were die cut out of white glitter paper & the 3 little cardinals out of silver mirror paper. I used some thin silver cord to twine around the wreath & made a loopy bow for the top of the wreath. The greeting is from a large frame greeting, but I didn’t ink the frame part. Since my wreath is good size, the card is also. It measures 6.5 x 5 so it fits in an A7 envelope. The white bg also is larger than the A2 sized rectangle die so I had to use my die resizing/extending technique to make it larger. I thought the sides looked a little bare so I added a couple of strips of silver mirror paper to each side.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

It’s my pleasure to host the Splitcoast Featured Stamper Challenge (FS660) this week! A big congrats to Rebekah as the newest Featured Stamper! I chose THIS card to case. I  kept the Christmas theme & layout, but I used different stamps, different dies & left off an embossed layer.

Except for the greeting, my card is all die cuts. I used white glitter paper for the roof of the cabin, the snow hills & little round snowflakes. After I cut the snow hills, I stuck them together & cut them in the shape of the white oval layer. The trees were cut w/ a couple of greens & I added stickles to them. For the largest layer & scallop oval layer, I used some old Cricut Christmas paper. The poinsettia was die cut out of watercolor paper & I used Brushes & a paintbrush to add the color to the petals & leaves.

Thanks so much for stopping by.
