For the Splitcoast Inspiration Challenge we’re visiting Grandin Road & their Pinterest Board where I found THIS lovely clock image.

My card, I used a new clock stencil & sponged the reds & greens thru it. I used black soot to sponge the clock hands on it. After die cutting it twice w/ a pair of circle dies, I coasted the outer ring w/ gold ink & gold heat embossed it before putting it back. The greeting was also gold embossed using two greetings I put together. The pine green panel the greeting is on was die cut & I made it narrower by moving one side of the die in & cutting that side again. It’s bordered w/ narrow strips of mirror gold on either side.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

It’s my pleasure to host this week’s challenge & a big congrats to Mary Beth, the newest Featured Stamper (FS772) on Splitcoast! She has a lovely gallery & I chose THIS card to case. I kept the Christmas theme & color palette, but used different dies, a stencil & turned mine vertical.

My Christmas card started w/ a Green alcohol ink bg I made I don’t even know how long ago. I used a stained glass stencil, but since I only wanted the lines (the stencil fills in the centers), I tacked it down on a piece of white & sponged the metallic gold ink all over it as you’d normally do. Carefully, I lifted the stencil & turned it inked side down on top of my AI bg & used a brayer to go over it. That left me w/ just the lines & I quickly heat embossed it w/ mirror gold powder. The large brushed gold layer was cut w/ a stitched rect die then I die cut it again w/ the candle circle. The flame parts were cut out of 2 different shades of gold, as well as the stitched frame. These were attached on top of the green bg & the greeting was also gold embossed on a narrow dk green strip. The entire candle layer is popped up on a foam layer to give it a little dimension.

so much for stopping by!

For the Splitcoast Inspiration Challenge (IC832), we’re visiting Putti Fine Furnishings & their Pinterest Board. I chose THIS for my inspiration.

I started my card by die cutting the stitched lattice bg out of metallic silver & also a piece of fun foam & attaching them together. On the white bg piece, I sponged a combo of Brilliance platinum & Ultimate metallic silver inks thru a new Snowflake stencil. I sprinkled just a bit of silver embossing powder here & there & heat embossed it. The layered flowers were stamped using the two sets of pink/red inks & die cut w/ their coordinating dies. The greeting was also silver embossed & attached to a silver scalloped oval.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
