Christmas?! What?! Yes, the ABC Challenge Blog has branched out and has created a new challenge blog just for Christmas cards...it's called ABC Christmas Challenge. My store Stamp and Create will be sponsoring a few of the their challenges in the future.
I really love the idea...I need to get started on my Christmas cards NOW so that I have enough by the end of the year. Their challenges are every 2 weeks, so if I participate in every challenge, I should have 26 cards done by the end of the year!! Unfortunately, I missed the first 2 challenges, so I am already behind...oh well!
They are also having a Design Team call. So if you would like to play along, here are the details!
This week's challenge is C for Candy with an added challenge of "Pink".
This is also for the Stamp Something Challenge - Delightfully Delicious
And SCS SC265 Sketch.
I went through my stash of usable stamps (I have a ton of stamps for the store, but I can't open all of them now, can I?!) and I found this cute one from The Greeting Farm. Although it's not designed specifically for Christmas, I still think it works fine.
This is Lolli Anya from the Greeting Farm. I used some Cosmo Cricket DP for the "pink" element, plus it had more "candy" in it! I wanted to add in some green, so I went with a SU Always Artichoke mat and a Black card base.
Lolli Anya was embossed in black and watercolored with Twinkling H2Os....
I stamped around the image with one of the Whiff of Joy Christmas Swirls - which I just noticed that I never added to the store!! HA! That's why they weren't selling!! Doh!! Anyway, they are on there now. I love the look of the swirls around an image. And although this set was designed for the Holidays, it really is a versatile set - there's even an awesome hanging heart which would be perfect for Valentine's Day images!!
Well, I have to run...so much to do this week!! Wags 'n Whiskers will have a new release next friday, so have a lot of work to do to get ready. Plus Scrap and Stamp Saturday is having a blog hop this weekend!!
Oh, don't foget about my LOVE sale!!
Thanks for stopping by!! Happy Stamping!
