For the Inspiration Challenge (IC736) on Splitcoast, we’re headed to a scrapbooking blog called Artsy Albums. There were a bunch I was inspired by but THIS one really stuck with me.

I knew I had a cute little Ferris wheel die & that it would be perfect! I die cut it in lt & dk grey sparkle c/s & the little buckets in several colors & put it all together. I used a tiny heart punch on all the many colored hearts. I had a left over piece of teal dp that I used for the lower layer behind the main panel & on the pink, I sponged a slightly darker pink ink thru a stencil for a little pattern. The cute little clouds were stamped & shaded slightly & the greeting was stamped w/ a dk grey ink.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Supplies:

Stamps: Rubbernecker Stamps: You Make Me Smile, Lift Off set
Paper:  Staples 110# white, pink, dp (Pebbles – Fun in the Sun)
Ink: Memento London fog, VersaClair morning mist
Accessories:  Rubbernecker Stamps:  Rectangle Stitch,Ferris Wheel dies, Fiskars tiny heart punch

Welcome to December! I made this for 2 Splitcoast Challenges..the Splitcoaststampers Fan Club December Christmas Challenge & the Featured Stamper (FS669) where the FS is my friend Kia! I chose THIS card as my inspiration. I loved the layout & framing so I kept those, but I used different images/dies & opted to use an embossed & sponged frame instead of stenciling. As for the Christmas Challenge, you’ll need to be Fan Club member but that’s easy…just click the blue link to find out how. Bet you’re wondering what the challenge theme is..I’d love to tell you but you’ll have to go see for yourself.

For my card, I used some deckle rectangle dies to make 2 sizes of frames. On the white one, I sponged the inside & outside edges to give it some contrast & on the larger one, I ran it thru w/ an embossing folder then lightly sponged over the top of the embossing. The ornament branch was colored & die cut w/ its matching die & I used fun foam to pop it & the frame up a bit. A couple of die cut cardinals were added for a little pop of red.

The greeting was stamped & I used my out of the box die cutting technique on it. It works the same way as it does when using an image…just make your cuts right on the black lines where they go inside the die.
Here are the Copics I used.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

For the Splitcoast Inspiration Challenge (IC729), we’re headed to a wonderful Christmas site called Bronner’s Christmas Wonderland. After much window shopping, I chose THIS item as my inspiration. I just rec’d this cute little Owl image & I knew it would be perfect.

After stamping & coloring this cute owl & his sleigh, I die cut them w/ their matching dies & attached them to one I cut out of white cardboard..it gives the image a little lift & sturdiness. For the bg panel, I die cut the frame w/ curves die & snipped out the topmost curve. I put the lower sections back into the frame because I thought they resembled hills of snow. The blue bg has a snowflake frame embossed on it & I sponged it & splattered it w/ water. A partial line of trees was tucked into one side & a lamppost added to the other side.

Here are the Copics I used to color everything.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
