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.

Congrats to Susan, the newest Featured Stamper (FS673) on Splitcoast! She has a fab gallery & I chose THIS card as my inspiration. I kept the blues & oval but used different images & dies & turned the layout.

I thought a little winter card would be nice. I put thank you on the inside but it could just as well be a winter birthday card. Had to take the pictures flat because this navy bg is one of those colors that defy picture taking. I have a couple of colors that the camera just goes haywire trying to capture the color & this is one. Flat like this, it comes out fine & hopefully you can see the silver snowflakes & silver embossed greeting, too. The snowflakes were stamped w/ the silver ink, but I didn’t emboss them..just heat set them. For the ice skates,  I stamped them on the lighter blue/gray c/s & used Prismacolor Pencils on them. I have really enjoyed using the pencils on different colors of c/s lately & this color seemed to work out well for the skates. A few silver punched snowflakes were added to finish.

Here’s the inside:
