For the Splitcoast Inspiration Challenge (IC868), we are visiting Brighton where I found THIS bead. I thought the colors would be perfect for a Christmas in July card.

On my mini slimline card, after die cutting the white layer & green polka dot layer, I die cut some extra small white pieces w/ the same mini rectangle (in order to have them the same width as the white panel), then cut the tops w/ some stitched hill dies. The snowflakes were stamped w/ a pale blue then stamped the greeting 3 times. The snowman was colored & die cut to add on top. Stickles was added for a little sparkle.

These are the Copics I used:

For the Splitcoast Inspiration Challenge (IC837), we’re visiting Emerlyn Closet & their Pinterest Board, where I found THIS lovely image.

For my slimline card, I started w/ a panel of turquoise which I spritzed w/ bleach, then die cut. The pine boughs were stamped all down the left side & colored in w/ Copics. The pinecones, leaves & berries were stamped on white, colored & die cut w/ their matching dies. When I started to arrange them on top of the pine boughs, the narrow white outline around them seemed too bright. Instead of trimming them all, I took a Copic close to the bg color & went around the edges to make them blend in a little better. A fine line black marker was used to draw the branches to the berries. The cones, leaves & some of the berries were popped up a bit for dimension. I used a white Posca paint pen to add “snow” to the images. For the greeting, I used the same die as the turquoise panel to get the width, but moved the top & bottom in to make it much narrower, height-wise.

A big congrats to Dagmar, the newest Featured Stamper (FS766) on Splitcoast! She has a wonderful gallery & uses so many great techniques. I chose THIS card to case. I kept the winter scene inside the masked shape but used different images & dies & made my scene a little bigger.

For my scenic Christmas card, I die cut the large scallop circle & used the reverse mask to cover all but the area where the scene would be. I used a curved mask to cover the sky area & sponged in the water, then used the reverse part to mask the water & sponged in the sky, leaving a white area between the two. I cut a bunch of masks for the rocks, since mine were all individual stamps, & stamped in the rocks. I covered the rocks & water & stamped the different size trees along the rocks. I used the scallop shaped mask to cover the scene, then stamped the snowflakes w/ white ink & embossed w/ holographic powder (it’s a little hard to see). A white Posca pen was used to add ‘snow’ dots to the sponged scene & also a little stickles for sparkle.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
