It’s my turn & my pleasure to host the Splitcoast Featured Stamper Challenge this week! So a big congrats to Catherine, the newest Featured Stamper. She has a lovely, fun gallery & I saw many I wanted to case..but I finally chose THIS. (I actually saw a lot of cards w/ stars!) I love the stars, so I kept those, but used a die instead of a stamp for the stars, used different colors & made mine a graduation card.

My card is pretty CAS, I had a bg…actually a lg white envelope that I kept under my card stock when I was sponging, spraying & what not, & it looked so pretty & glittery, I saved it. I die cut the Stars out of the front & added the bg behind it. I put the white outline back in place & used a silver Wink of Stella on some. It was really surprising to me how much sparkle it added in comparison to the clear I used on the capital letters of the greeting & a couple of the other white star frames. I added some diplomas & mortarboards in the left corner.

Here’s the inside.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Welcome to April & to the Splitcoaststampers Fan Club April Christmas Challenge! I’m part of the challenge team again this year & the bonus is I’ll have a bunch of Christmas cards finished in plenty of time for Christmas this year. 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 Christmas Wishes card, I used an embossing folder on the white bg, then paper pieced some strips for a faux woven bg. I used part of a box of Christmas cards I bought that are supposed to have a picture inserted so the entire back is 5×7 piece of this heavy weight Christmas print w/ little red foil accents. After I glued them, I embossed it all again.  The rest was just die cutting the holly out of green glitter card, the Wishes & backing oval out of red glitter card, then attaching a red foil frame over the bg. 

Here’s the inside.

Today’s Inspiration Challenge (IC629) on Splitcoast is a fabulous site of Chrismtas ornaments! I was inspired by THIS. I adore Christmas ornaments & each year I try to find a new one to add to our tree. Since we were in the middle of moving, I didn’t get it done this year, but I do have a card featuring lots of colorful ornaments.
 

My card also features a couple of recycled objects…a piece of clear acetate packaging & a large green paint chip. I die cut the large piece of acetate & used an embossing folder on it. It’s backed w/ a very large green paint chip & for the header, I stamped, colored & fussy cut the ornaments & added the rectangle w/ the colored greeting on top. 

Here’s a look at the inside & below it are the Copics I used.

Thanks so much for stopping by & have a very Merry Christmas!
