For the Splitcoast Inspiration Challenge (IC784), we are headed to Bathhouse Soapery. They have some lovely things & I was inspired by THIS. I loved the elf legs poking out of the sugar scrub.

I’m not sure how I arrived at my card, exactly…I tried an elf shoes image, but it was too big to have them sticking out of something. So I used this cute gnome & a very large cup of cocoa. And I had to split the gnome in half to have his head show above the cup, so he’s obviously the tall gnome in his family. When I started putting it together, it looked a little blank, so I added a window & put a piece of patterned paper behind it, & some little presents below it.

Here are the Copics I used:

A big congrats to Leslie, the newest Featured Stamper (FS720) on Splitcoast! She has such a wonderful gallery & I chose THIS card to case. I kept the snowman & snowflakes but I used different images & dies & made a special window opening for my snowman. I also added a greeting.

For my snowman, after coloring & cutting him out, I wanted to try a little something extra for the window I wanted to put him into. I took a smallish rectangle die but cut it on an angle & not all the way to the bottom (see the pics below for step by step).


I wanted a stitched & curved border so this is how I did that.

And the back side. The die is placed UNDER the sides so it won’t cut those.


That worked really well! I cut another small piece of stitched hill & attached it behind this one. Then I had the (not so) brilliant idea to add the little zigzag frame. I like it, but you can’t really tell what I did w/ the angled cut now. Oh well! And then I dropped the BG10 marker on the frame, so I colored the whole thing w/ it. That part actually worked…now it shows up better. The snowman was popped up a bit & a small piece of snowflake paper was added behind him. Then the greeting was added & the snowflakes were stamped w/ the pale aqua ink.



Here are the Copics I used on Mr. Snowman.

For the Splitcoast Inspiration Challenge (IC781), we’re headed to Hello Lucky, where I found THIS cute picture.

My frosty friends were stamped, starting w/ Santa, then masked as I went to stamp them in the pyramid. There are matching dies, I just didn’t use them this time. The string of lights & cute little tree & present were added, then everything was colored & I added some stitched snow banks at the bottom. A little stickles was added for sparkle.
