It’s my pleasure to host the Splitcoast Featured Stamper Challenge (FS671), so a big congrats to Lisa! She has a wonderful gallery & I was inspired by THIS card. I kept the snowman & colors but made mine into a trio of gift tags instead of a card. I used a few other images, as well.

I hope you’re ready for the holidays! I’m about 95% there. Almost all of my presents have been sent, almost all of the cards mailed & I was actually early getting the tree & decorations up. Since I don’t need any more Christmas cards, I thought a few Christmas tags would be helpful. I love Christmas tags & every year I vow to make some, but hardly ever have the time. I also love Prismacolor Pencils on kraft so I’m combining those two. Tags are little quicker to make than cards but like potato chips, you can never have just one. So I picked three images that would fit on the tags, stamped & colored w/ the Prismas, then added a little detail die cutting on the bottom edges. It’s easy & to me, dresses them up a bit. Plus there’s plenty of room on the backside to write To & From.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

A big Congrats to Lora, the newest Featured Stamper (FS666) on Splitcoast! She has sweet  gallery & there were a lot of different snowmen cards, but I was mostly influenced by THIS card. I kept the group of snowmen & similar horizontal layout, but I used different images & dies, different colors & moved the greeting.

After stamping, coloring & die cutting the snowmen, I also die cut a pine green frame to go on top & a red scallop frame to go underneath. The greeting is good size so I only used the top half, die cut it then cut a slit to insert the corner of the image inside. I just love that little bunny on the right, attempting to eat the carrot.

Here are the Copics I used.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

NCC Tommy Turkey 04862 On my first card, I’m using the adorable Tommy Turkey. This little guy just makes me smile 🙂 I know turkeys aren’t usually this colorful but I wanted him all decked out in his Thanksgiving finery. We have a flock of wild turkeys that come through our back yard pretty regularly and I can assure you they are nowhere near as cute & colorful as this little guy. After coloring, I did a little out of the box on the tips of his feathers and sponged a little color around the inside while he was still in the die. I added a rusty brown frame and a few layers behind him. The stamped, die cut leaves and greeting are from Our Daily Bread designs. The finished card is 5.50 x 4.25 and these are the Copics I used.
