The CAS Challenge (CAS520) features repetitive stamping. And since it’s still technically winter, I have a quick snowman card.

I stamped Mr. Flakey onto white, colored him then die cut. The greeting & snowflakes were stamped directly onto the card front. A turquoise frame was added along w/ a little stickles for sparkle. I can’t believe I stamped the greeting on the card front & it wasn’t a disaster. I hardly ever do that because..it’s just asking for trouble where I’m concerned.

Here’s the inside & the Copics I used.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

It’s my turn to host the Splitcoast Inspiration Challenge (IC678) & I chose Joss & Main for the site. They have some fab Holiday decorations & ideas. I was inspired by THIS set of canapé plates. I really love the winter images & plaid.

After stamping & coloring my holiday snowman, I stamped the plaid background onto light red cardstock w/ black ink then used a few darker red Copics to add a little tone variation. I die cut both panels then used a curved border die to cut the bottom of the snowman panel. A couple of die cut buttons were added w/ a little glossy dimensional glaze added on top of them. The greeting was a little too large, so I stamped it w/ Stazon on the front of a piece of shrink plastic, die cut it w/ a circle die & most importantly, punched the hole at the top before shrinking it w/ a heat gun. I used a G02 to color the backside before I shrunk it. It was barely even noticeable but look how much darker it became when shrunk. A little Stickles was added to the snow & icicles.

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

It’s my turn to host today’s Inspirations Challenge (IC631) on Splitcoast!  I was inspired by THIS & THIS so I combined the two. 

I have a winter card using this fun, fun, fun Winter Wonder Words bg. When my unmounted stamp arrived, it still had a line across the top (from the edge of the plate) & I left it. I don’t always ink it, but I did this time. I thought it made the perfect division between the upper & lower part. I inked it w/ the stormy sky ink & stamped it multiple times, but only used the line across the top.  The Warm Wishes was stamped in the upper area w/ the majestic blue ink to make it a little more prominent than the lower bg. 

I came across a piece of royal blue c/s that I had embossed all over w/ a sparkly powder. I don’t know why I did this or when, but I thought it might look good for a big frosty snowman. After I die cut him, I left the die in place & went over some parts w/ a white marker & the others w/ a cobalt blue Copic. Then I added a die cut piece of thin foam behind him to elevate him a bit. The larger blue mittens were punched & added. A narrow strip of blue glitter paper was added down the left & some punched snowflakes here & there.

 
Here’s a look a the inside. I went over the greeting & mittens w/ a blue Wink of Stella.
