Welcome to November!  And it’s time for the Splitcoaststampers Fan Club November Christmas Challenge! We have a year of new Christmas Challenges!  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. Hint..I’m really loving the new theme for this year. I’m a little bit early for the Christmas Challenge because I’m combining it w/ the Featured Stamper Challenge (FS769) & a big congrats to Jocelyn! She has a beautiful gallery & I chose THIS card to case. I kept the slimline Christmas design but used different images, dies & colors. I also used a stencil instead of designer paper.

For my card, I die cut the the white panels & used a new stencil on the smaller layer, with turquoise, lavender & lt blue inks. A narrow turquoise panel was added behind it & the gnome & gift box were colored & die cut w/ their matching dies. A craft knife was used to cut a slit at the top of the box so I could insert the gnome inside & I added fun foam behind to pop it up. The greeting was split above & below & I added 3 colored to match (they were clear & I used some of the same Copics to color them) gems on the top right & some iridescent stars sprinkled around the stenciling.

Here are the Copics I used:

For the Splitcoast Inspiration Challenge (IC803), we’re headed to Shop Sweet Lulu. They had quite a few things that caught my eye, but I kept coming back to THIS card. The hot pink hair & star shaped sunglasses really captured my attention.

For my card, I stamped, colored & die cut the Nala image, I die cut some stars for her sunglasses using gold & white glitter card. I had to practice that hot pink hair a couple of times on scrap to get the look I wanted. I popped up just a bit on a rounded corner rectangle & added a turquoise mat. It took me a while to figure out what to do about a bg to tie all the colors together. Then I found a piece I made a while back by spraying the inside of an embossing folder then running it thru the machine. It had the colors & kind of retro rock feel to it. After I put it all together, I added some stickles to the raised white lines on the bg. The greeting is part stamped, part die cut.

Here are the Copics I used:

A big congrats to Francine, the newest Featured Stamper (FS738)! She has a fab gallery & I chose THIS card to case. I kept the die word cut off at the bottom, but used different dies, different colors & made mine a birthday card.

I made a similar card, w/ the die cut bottom like this, a long time ago & liked the look, so I was immediately drawn to that in Francine’s card. For my version, I die cut the 2 white panels; on the smaller one, I also die cut the bottom using the shadow part of the word die, then put it back. On the larger bg, I sponged just a little color at the bottom, then used a spritzer tool & Copics to spray the color onto it. Not as smooth as an airbrush system, but it will do. Then the stars bg was stamped in some of the same hot pink colors over this bg. I also put a white Posca pen into the spritzer tool & misted it, too. I did the same on the die cut Birthday, using the blue Copics. I added a star border die cut & added some stickles to it for a little sparkle.

These are the Copics I used to spritz on the color.
