It’s my pleasure to host the Splitcoast Featured Stamper challenge this week, so a big congrats to France, the newest Featured Stamper (FS724)! I chose THIS card to case. I loved the mirror reflection so I kept that, but I used different images & dies & made mine a Christmas card.

For my card, I stamped, colored & die cut the cute snowman, then stamped him again, using masking tape to cover up the areas inside of his outline. I wanted it to look like I was viewing him from the back as he gazes in the mirror. The mirror was die cut out of mirror silver card & put into a white frame then surrounded by a red glitter scallop frame.

The split background is made of a leftover piece of red glitter embossed diagonal stripe & on the top half, I stamped red snowflakes.

Here are the Copics I used:

Thanks so much for stopping by!

 

 

Supplies:

Stamps: Rubbernecker Stamps: Snowmen w/ Presents, Diagonal Stripes
Paper:  Staples 110# white, silver mirror board, red glitter

Accessories:  Rubbernecker Stamps: Nested Scallop w Holes Snowmen w/ Presents, Oval Stitch, Oval Scallop w/ Pierce  dies, Crossover II, Copic Sketch Markers, MISTI, red glitter embossing powder

As a knitter, I love the Studio Knit Pinterest Board Stacy chose. I’m pretty sure I’ll be going back there to check out the patterns in closer detail. For my card, I was inspired by THIS. I loved the color & texture.

I started by inking the knitted embossing folder w/ a dark blue & med. turquoise inks then embossed it onto white. The paper was lightly spritzed w/ water to help the inking & embossing process. Love how that turned out! Then I die cut the snowman & accessories & instead of adding the die cut scarf, I knitted a little scarf w/ some small needles. Since it was so small, I didn’t try to do anything fancy…just a garter stitch border & stockinette body. I made a frame & stamped the snowflakes w/ a lt blue then put it all together. I did used a C2 & BG000 to add a little shading to the snowman.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

A big congrats to Leslie, the newest Featured Stamper (FS720) on Splitcoast! She has such a wonderful gallery & I chose THIS card to case. I kept the snowman & snowflakes but I used different images & dies & made a special window opening for my snowman. I also added a greeting.

For my snowman, after coloring & cutting him out, I wanted to try a little something extra for the window I wanted to put him into. I took a smallish rectangle die but cut it on an angle & not all the way to the bottom (see the pics below for step by step).


I wanted a stitched & curved border so this is how I did that.

And the back side. The die is placed UNDER the sides so it won’t cut those.


That worked really well! I cut another small piece of stitched hill & attached it behind this one. Then I had the (not so) brilliant idea to add the little zigzag frame. I like it, but you can’t really tell what I did w/ the angled cut now. Oh well! And then I dropped the BG10 marker on the frame, so I colored the whole thing w/ it. That part actually worked…now it shows up better. The snowman was popped up a bit & a small piece of snowflake paper was added behind him. Then the greeting was added & the snowflakes were stamped w/ the pale aqua ink.



Here are the Copics I used on Mr. Snowman.
