CCC Week #11: Scallops

Happy Sunday! It’s time for a new Christmas Card Challenge, and this week, we’re inspired by scallops!

I chose to feature Your Next Stamp’s “Winter Smiles Robin” image on my card this week:

Other supplies: paper pad (“Christmas Wish” – My Mind’s Eye), sentiment stamp (“Signature Christmas” – PaperTrey Ink), twine (“Holly” – Trendy Twine), button, foam tape, Spellbinders dies (circle and scalloped circle), Copic markers, opaque white marker, glitter brads (Imaginisce)
Remember, all of our challenges are optional…the only “real” rule is that you must create a new Christmas, Holiday or Hannukah card, then link it up on our blog so we can stop by and say hi!

It’s not necessary that you use a Sparkle Creations Rubber Stamp on your card, but we sure love it when you do!

Don’t forget to visit the rest of the CCC team to take a peek at the fun and festive cards they’ve created this week: AlannaCorinneJennifer, JovitaKarenKatieLeesaLorieMargoMichelePatStephanie…and our guest designer Juliane!

Christmas Card Challenges – Week #8

Happy Sunday! It’s time for a new Christmas Card Challenge, and this week, we’re inspiring you with a sketch!

Here’s my card, featuring Sparkle Creations Rubber Stamps’ “Rin and Snowman“:


And here’s the sketch that inspired my card! Instead of one single accent on the right side, I chose a more noticeable sentiment on the left, and added rhinestones to the right.

I designed this week’s sketch…I hope you enjoy creating with it!



Remember, all of our challenges are optional…the only “real” rule is that you must create a new Christmas, Holiday or Hannukah card, then link it up on our blog so we can stop by and say hi!

It’s not necessary that you use a Sparkle Creations Rubber Stamp on your card, but we sure love it when you do!

CCC Week #3 – Doilies

Hello crafty friends! It’s time for a new Christmas Card Challenge, and this week, we’re digging DOILIES!

The only doilies I have on hand are heart-shaped ones, but I do have a doily stamp set, so I used it to accentuate the focal image on my card:
Other supplies: twine (Trendy Twine), watermark ink (VersaMark), clear and white embossing powder, glitter tape (American Crafts), doily stamp (My Mind’s Eye), paper (October Afternoon – blue; My Mind’s Eye – red dot), kraft card stock, snowflake accent – Imaginisce, Copic markers.
Except for the doily stamp, the other stamps I used are from Your Next Stamp (snowflake and snowman stamps – Holiday Snow Globe set; sentiment – Winter Smiles Robin set). The little hat topper was created with Liquid Applique.
All of our challenges are optional…the only “real” rule is that you must create a new Christmas, Holiday or Hannukah card, then link it up on our blog so we can stop by and say hi!

It’s not necessary that you use a Sparkle Creations Rubber Stamp on your card, but we sure love it when you do!

Christmas Card Challenges: Week 50 (Snowmen)!

Happy Sunday! I’m popping in today to share my card for this week’s Christmas Card Challenge…snowmen!

I got this little guy as part of a Pink Paislee wood accent set I found on clearance. I inked him with white pigment ink, after masking off his hat to color in later with a Copic marker. I sealed the ink with Glossy Accents, and wrapped some strands of twine around his neck for a scarf.


Other supplies: patterned paper (Memory Box), sentiment (Papertrey Ink), enamel dots (My Mind’s Eye), lace trim (My Mind’s Eye), twine (Trendy Twine), ink (Brilliance Graphite Black), kraft card stock.

Although all of our challenges are optional…the only “real” rule is that you must create a new Christmas, Holiday or Hannukah card, then link it up on the CCC blog so we can stop by and leave you some lovely comments!


We also don’t require that you use Sparkle Creations Rubber Stamps on your cards, but if you have them, we’d love to see you ink them up when you play along!

Don’t forget to visit the rest of the CCC team to take a peek at the beautiful cards they’ve created this week: AlannaBrigitteCandaceCorinneDeeKatieLeesaMargoMichelePat, and Stephanie!

Thanks so much for stopping by! If you’re in the United States, I hope you have a safe Veteran’s Day weekend. I appreciate all that our military veterans (like my husband and my Dad) do and have done for our country. Please take time to remember our veterans this weekend.

I’m hoping to get a few random challenge cards done today so I have something to share with you before our next Your Next Stamp challenge on Thursday! Don’t forget to link your entry on the Christmas Card Challenges blog! See you there!
