My friend, Jean, on the Splitcoast Technique Lovers Challenge team, asked me to make a sample for today’s TLC877 Challenge. She picked a technique I did a tutorial for 10 years ago! You can see the tutorial HERE on Splitcoast, & I even made a video for it HERE. (You can also view a tutorial I did on my blog HERE.)

This time I did a winter theme & used snowflakes for the bg. I forgot my own advice about using small stamps but was happy to see a white Posca paint pen took care of the few little oversteps.

I will mention, I die cut the stitched back panel first then measured to know where to score the “tiles”. The panel measures 4″x 5.25″ so I scored the lines 1 5/16″ apart. The first time I scored them, I used a Scor-Buddy but found the lines weren’t as deep as when I used a Scor-It board. You want to be sure to use the indented side of the scored bg for your front side.

The teddy was stamped, colored & die cut, popped up a bit on the center panel. The deckle frame was sponged w/ the same set of blue inks I used on the bg & I added a few glitter snowflakes. Here are the Copics I used:

A big congrats to embee, the newest Featured Stamper(FS775)! She has a lovely gallery & I chose THIS to case. I kept the layout but changed most everything else. I went from rainbow colors to just red & green, birthday to Christmas, & A2 to slimline.

For my card, I stamped, colored & cut out the elf shoes & also a long white panel. I used my resizing tech to make the panel a little bit longer than it normally would be. I used the same tech to cut the red & green sections I attached to the white panel. These were some papers I had spritzed w/ bleach a long time ago & I thought it added a bit of visual texture to the plain colors. After they were attached, I dry embossed across the top w/ a snowflake border folder. The greeting was stamped & a few glittery die cut snowflakes were added. Some of the elf shoes were popped up a bit before attaching.

Here are the Copics I used:

For the Splitcoast Inspiration Challenge (IC832), we’re visiting Putti Fine Furnishings & their Pinterest Board. I chose THIS for my inspiration.

I started my card by die cutting the stitched lattice bg out of metallic silver & also a piece of fun foam & attaching them together. On the white bg piece, I sponged a combo of Brilliance platinum & Ultimate metallic silver inks thru a new Snowflake stencil. I sprinkled just a bit of silver embossing powder here & there & heat embossed it. The layered flowers were stamped using the two sets of pink/red inks & die cut w/ their coordinating dies. The greeting was also silver embossed & attached to a silver scalloped oval.
