Congrats to Karen, the newest Featured Stamper on Splitcoast! She has a lovely little gallery & I chose THIS card to case. I liked the wreath on the brick wall, so I kept that. But I used different stamps, dies & colors & used a stencil for my brick instead of an embossing folder.

On my bg, I sponged Brilliance gold & lightning black inks thru the brick wall stencil. While the stencil was still in place, I stamped the splatter bg using the same inks to give the bricks a little texture. IRL, it’s very gold & shimmery! The wreath was stamped, colored & I used my out of the box die cutting technique & a circle die to cut it. Large script greeting fit perfectly inside the wreath & I stamped it in black first, then again in the lightning black so it has a nice shimmer, too. A gold circle layer was added & done!

Here are the Copics I used for the wreath:

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Congrats to Jan, the newest Featured Stamper (FS659) on Splitcoast! She has one fab gallery & it was really hard to pick just one. But THIS card really stayed w/ me so I picked it to case. I kept the big, patterned die cut letters & most of the colors, but I used different stamps, different dies & turned it into a Christmas card. 

For my version, after coloring the many moose (mooses? meeses? I know the plural is the same as the singular..it just looks weird, kwim?), they were die cut w/ the matching dies. The bg was sponged w/ Distress inks & splattered w/ water. On the Merry letters, I sponged the Brilliance ink onto red c/s using several new Rubbernecker stencils, spritzed it w/ shimmer spray,  then die cut them. I added some Washi tape toward the top & a couple of stitched snow hills at the bottom before adding the moose herd. The Christmas was white embossed on black & tucked under the washi tape.

Here are the Copics I used.

For the Splitcoast Inspiration Challenge (IC720), we are going to Burton & Burton. There were a lot of things I wanted to use for inspiration, but I kept coming back to THIS picture. 

After I die cut the trees, deer & a white front, I sponged the Distress inks down another white panel, then splattered it w/ some picket fence Distress stain.  The die cuts were attached (I used a black Prismacolor pencil on the birch trees) & the little scene was spritzed w/ a shimmer spray.  

After I decided how tall to make my little scene, I used my Resizing Technique to divide the top white panel in two, then shorten them (this technique works for making die cuts smaller as well as larger!). I had some corrugated white cardboard saved from a light bulb pkg, so I used it to pop up the 2 white panel a bit. Stickles was used on the white snowflake & a few clear sequins for additional sparkle. Thanks so much for stopping by!
