We are visiting The Spirit of Christmas for the Inspiration Challenge (IC888) where I found THIS cute ornament for my inspiration.

I really liked the 2 little ones peeking over the stairs at the Christmas tree, so I looked around to see what I could use to recreate the scene. I used 2 little peeking snowmen & constructed the staircase out of some strips of white & a fence die. The background is a diamond lattice die that I filled in part of the top w/ the designer paper. The red diamonds are the reverse side of the print. The tree was colored and fussy cut, the presents were all die cut along w/ the tiny ornaments & bows on the stair case.

These are the Copics I used:

A big congrats to Pat, the newest Featured Stamper (FS826) on Splitcoast. She has a wonderful gallery & I chose THIS card to case. I kept the layout w/ the split panel, but used different dies, slightly different colors & instead of a split negative I elected to add a gray shadow layer under the white on the white panel.

On my card, I used a piece of dk grey designer paper w/ little images instead of the black panel Pat used. I die cut the tree & snow out of white then added a grey shadow layer under the white on the white side panel. The random dots were stamped w/ a lt grey ink & I added a cardinal & 2 ornaments on the tree. The die cut Joy was added above the rest of the stamped greeting. all in all, a fairly quick CAS Christmas card.

This week’s inspiration site (& Pinterest Board)  is called Sugar & Cloth. I was inspired by THIS picture.

For my scene, I die cut the half tree out of kraft & used a couple of brown Copics. The branch w/ the tree swing was colored & die cut & I trimmed off a couple of branches from the tree in order to add the swing branch. Before I attached the tree & swing branch, I stamped the leaves in the bg w/ a couple of green inks. After I attached the tree, I added some tiny green leaves on top of the tree branches, added the grass & the greeting.

Here are the Copics I used on the tree & tree swing branch:
