It’s my pleasure to host the Splitcoast Inspiration Challenge (IC822) this week.  We’re headed to Not on the High Street & their Pinterest Boards where I found THIS picture. 

For my card, I die cut a narrow gold circle then used a smaller one to cut out the inside. The 2 different holly dies were used w/ 2 different colors of metallic gold card stock. Some gold cord was wrapped around the circle, tied in a bow & the loose ends wound around the outside of the circle. The greeting was gold embossed below then the holly added on the simple wreath.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Congrats to Jane, the newest Featured Stamper (FS718) on Splitcoast! Jane has a lovely gallery & I chose THIS card to case. I kept the most of the layout & the lattice element, but I used different stamps, dies & made mine a Christmas card.

For my card, I had this wreath colored quite a while ago, just waiting to be made into a card, so I die cut it, using my out of the box technique (yep.there were a lot of parts out of the box on this one!), & backed it w/ a dk green circle layer. On the lattice, I used a slimline sized die but I only cut it part way, to fill the space I had available on the stitched rectangle cut piece. I’ll let you in on a little secret…the bottom part actually went a little too far. So I glued a narrow strip behind the piece, put it back in the stitched rectangle die, & ran it thru again. The patch is invisible! So don’t despair if this happens to you. After putting it all together, I added some sequins to the lattice & backed it w/ the same dk green.

Here are the Copics I used on the wreath.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

For the Splitcoast Inspiration Challenge (IC777), we are headed to Riverbend Home where I found THIS set of cute towels.

After coloring & die cutting the cute gnomes, I die cut the slimline card front & used some smaller circles to cut out the centers of a red layer behind it. The little wreaths were die cut & I added stickles to the berries & also the tiny circles surrounding the 3 large circle openings. The little gnomes were popped up a bit before I attached them to the card front. I used a Misti to stamp the greeting a couple of times to get it nice & dark.

Here are the Copics I used for the gnomes:
