It’s my pleasure to host the Splitcoast Featured Stamper Challenge (FS808) this week. So a big congrats to Kristin! She has a lovely, growing gallery & I chose THIS card to case. I kept the window scene, but used images instead of dies, different colors & made mine a Christmas card. 

After stamping & die cutting my images, I used a snow stencil & some arctic blue ink to sponge in the background. I also added a little of the same stencil inside the window then added some stickles to the snowflakes.

Here are the Copics I used:

Thanks so much for stopping by!

For the  Splitcoast Inspiration Challenge (IC869), we’re visiting Garden Collage where I found THIS picture. The palm trees got me started on my Christmas card, but I replaced the van w/ Santa.

For my mini slimline card, I colored & die cut Santa & all the palm trees. On the background, I picked an area for the water then used the 2 blue-green inks and a wavy stencil. To get a little variation, I also sponged on a bit of white ink thru the stencil. The stitched hills were die cut & sponged w/ mocha ink then added for the sand. The lt blue ink & a cloud stencil was used in the sky area. The greeting was stamped, all the pieces attached & I added a couple of seagulls to finish it.

Here are the Copics I used. The first one was for Santa & the second was the palm trees.

A big congrats to Faye, the newest Featured Stamper (FS800) on Splitcoast! She has a wonderful gallery & I chose THIS card to case. I kept the clean layout & purple flowers but used a stamp/stencil combo instead of a die cut & added a frame & an extra layer.

For my card, I put the image outline in my Misti & stamped it w/ black. Then used the coordinating layered stencil to sponge in the colors. The greeting was stamped along side & I used a clear Wink of Stella pen on some areas of the flowers. The main panel is popped up a bit & I used a black marker to add just a tiny edge around it.

Here are the inks I used (I forgot to put them in the topmost picture).
