CHRISTMASSince it is the first of the month, this challenge is open to any stamp manufacturer!
Link your Christmas creation over at the Challenge blog to be eligible for the $10 gift certificate drawing.
The winner will be announced on the 15th.
I have a little inspiration to get you started. I did use a Stampsmith stamp on my Design Team project.
This image is from the Lucy Full Sheet available from The Stampsmith Shop. The image was stamped with black dye ink on glossy white CS. I layered the image with red and green CS from Ac Cardstock. The green and red DP is from K & Company, the silver glitter paper is from Anna Griffin. I punched the snowflakes from the silver glitter paper using a Stampin' Up punch.
Well, I thought they both looked like they weren't gettin' nothin' for Christmas. Remember on the I love Lucy show how Lucy and Ethel were always getting into some kind of mischief? Judging from the expressions on their faces, I think they were caught in some silly scheme again.
Here a couple close ups for you. There is a rectangle of the green DP under the main image. The circles were punched with a Mary punch from the K & Company DP. I layered the circles under the main image and placed a snowflake in the center of each circle. I computer generated the sentiment in Word and printed it out on white CS.
On the inside, I layered the green polka dot and striped papers. I punched one circle and one snowflake. The Sentiment is from Hampton Arts.
Okay, so lets see what you can come up. Remember, you can use any stamp for this challenge.
