Card Candy Challenge
Share a Holiday Card! This month, instead of sending out sampler kits to my VIP stampers from last month, I have decided to open up the challenge to all who wish to participate.
Simply create your card. You are welcome to use any paper crafting product you have in your collection.
Then snap a photo and email it to me at firstname.lastname@example.org
I will share your card here on the blog and every entry has the opportunity of being in the end of the month drawing for FREE SHIPPING!
I hope you are all enjoying your paper crafts this holiday season. Thanks for sharing my stampin’ year with me, and I look forward to sharing more with all of you in 2020!
Holiday Card Created by You…
This card come from Grace in Florida. I love all the lines on the Shimmer White cardstock. Some embossed with a textured embossing folder and others from the die cut. Then the flower with all the red sparkle added to the edges is just wonderful.
This card was created by Carol in Connecticut. I love the black and red theme! From the Buffalo check background to the layered die cut trees. That great big sentiment is just great as well. Big sentiments can sometimes make the card! I love the little red glimmer enamel dot for the holly berry too.
This card also come from a Connecticut stamper, Lynne. I love the cut swirly circle on the foil for the wreath base. Then the added flourish of the die cut stems and bows. Add in the embossed sentiment in the center at the bottom, plus the edge of foil down the side. This is a very cherry card sample. It reminds me of the song “Silver & Gold”.
This card come from the neighboring town here in New York, and was created by Pam. This suite of products Christmas Gleaming with the ornament punches and foil gilded designer series papers, was definitely a favorite of mine and other this year. This sample is really stunning. I’m glad we will get to stamp with it again next year.
This card is from Susanne, from Connecticut. I really like the neutral colors and calming feel to this card. It is very relaxing and a unique creation for the holiday season. The design is clean and simple, but has added texture with the ribbon and sentiment tag. Plus the snowflake with the pearl center. Very, very nice.
This card comes from another Connecticut stamper, Terri. Here we have our traditional holiday tree. I love the knitted texture of the background on the Cherry Cobbler, paired with die cut sentiment of PEACE. Nice lines and a elegant card layout.
Here we have a card created by one of my first Stampin’ students, Andy, all the way from Oregon. I just adore the layers and sparkle of this handmade card.
Here Anne, a stamper from CT, has created a gold glimmer tree for her Joy card. The texture and sparkle a just lovely.
Carolyn, a stampin’ friend from OR, created this holiday card with last month’s Card Candy sampler. It’s never too late to send in a photo of your card creations. I like the way all the red coordinates so evenly.
Here we have Joan’s November Card Candy Challenge card. Her’s was a Garden Green version of the Toile Tidings DSP. I love the swirly embossing folder in the background.
Here is another creation by Joan. This is using last years snowman set. I love all the color and simplicity of the layout. It really just frames the image nicely and let’s the stamping really be showcased.
Here we have a Brightly Gleaming holiday card, also created by Joan. She says she CASED the idea from Pinterest. Which is certainly allowed.
Here we have a card created by Lori in CT. The snowflake embossing folder she used it stunning. And I always love the use of large sentiments.
This card was crafted by Nancy, another CT stamper, and my previous neighbor. I just love the way she used the paper punches to create her wreath for this card project. The Gold ribbon and gold embossed sentiment really are lovely as well.
This card is from Sandy in CT. I have to say this is quite a card creation. Al the detail is really lovely. I like all the shimmer silver and white paper. The oval DSP scene behind the leaping deer is fantastic and really showcases the deer.
This card came in from Laurie Rzasa, a stamper from CT. I love this design, I did this one a few years back at a party that I hosted. It take a bit of work to cut all the DSP sample pieces, but then it really does create a wonderful spectrum of trim for the background. The wood cut deer is a wonderful embellishment.
Random Act of Kindness Holiday Cards
Here Cynthia used the Cup of Christmas set with the coordinating Cup of Cheers dies to create this card. I really like the layout with all the layers and shapes being pulled together. And not typical holiday colors either. But a very nice card indeed.
Here Jennifer used elements of the Let It Snow suite from the holiday catalog. Those snowmen were just too cute to resist! I did end up adding them to last order. The very festive designer series paper reminds of my mud room after Henry has been outside playing in the snow!
Debi has created this card with the Cardinal from Toile Tidings in the current holiday catalog. The decorative frame comes from the Feels Like Frost Suite as well. I love all the gold detail in this card. In person, it really stands out.
Kaylin sent me this beautiful card. I don’t know that these are Stampin’ Up! products, but that is okay. Both my card challenges allow for anything in your collection. That is also the open rule for the Joy of Sets FB group as well. We celebrate stamped art of all forms. This card is heat embossed and then shaded with ink over the top.
Nancy made this beautiful card with the Christmas Rose bundle that was introduced in November of 2019. The detail and coloring of this creation is really wonderful.
Vicki created this card with the God’s Peace stamp set. Here she has embossed the image with gold emboss powder and heat set it. The colored with the Blend Markers. Those markers really have a glow to them once they are dry. It is really a wonderful sample of just that effect.
