My friend, Jean, on the Splitcoast Technique Lovers Challenge team, asked me to make a sample for today’s TLC877 Challenge. She picked a technique I did a tutorial for 10 years ago! You can see the tutorial HERE on Splitcoast, & I even made a video for it HERE. (You can also view a tutorial I did on my blog HERE.)

This time I did a winter theme & used snowflakes for the bg. I forgot my own advice about using small stamps but was happy to see a white Posca paint pen took care of the few little oversteps.

I will mention, I die cut the stitched back panel first then measured to know where to score the “tiles”. The panel measures 4″x 5.25″ so I scored the lines 1 5/16″ apart. The first time I scored them, I used a Scor-Buddy but found the lines weren’t as deep as when I used a Scor-It board. You want to be sure to use the indented side of the scored bg for your front side.

The teddy was stamped, colored & die cut, popped up a bit on the center panel. The deckle frame was sponged w/ the same set of blue inks I used on the bg & I added a few glitter snowflakes. Here are the Copics I used:

A big congrats to embee, the newest Featured Stamper(FS775)! She has a lovely gallery & I chose THIS to case. I kept the layout but changed most everything else. I went from rainbow colors to just red & green, birthday to Christmas, & A2 to slimline.

For my card, I stamped, colored & cut out the elf shoes & also a long white panel. I used my resizing tech to make the panel a little bit longer than it normally would be. I used the same tech to cut the red & green sections I attached to the white panel. These were some papers I had spritzed w/ bleach a long time ago & I thought it added a bit of visual texture to the plain colors. After they were attached, I dry embossed across the top w/ a snowflake border folder. The greeting was stamped & a few glittery die cut snowflakes were added. Some of the elf shoes were popped up a bit before attaching.

Here are the Copics I used:

A big congrats to Amy, the newest Featured Stamper (FS774) on Splitcoast! She has a wonderful gallery & I chose THIS card to case. I kept the dog/doghouse Christmas theme, but used all dies & a different layout & colors on mine. I’m also combining this w/ the Splitcoaststampers Fan Club December 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. Hint..I’m really loving the new theme for this year.

For my doggy Christmas card, I die cut all the pieces for the dog, house, & little Christmas items out of scraps of different colored card stock & put them all together. I added a snowy roofline & chimney w/ smoke to the roof & perched a little bird on there, as well. Only 1 side of a lg scallop die was used for the green trim down the side of the narrow red panel. The dog & house are popped up a bit w/ foam.


Thanks so much for stopping by!
