Get Cracking on Christmas Challenge Hop



Every year, come Chrismas time I always scramble to make Christmas cards. I mean, I always have the good intention on getting ready early, but in reality that very rarely happen.

And, yep, I have quite a few cute holiday sets that I haven’t even had a chance to play with yet.

So, Jenn Shurkus was mentioning about this challenge she does with our crafty friends Chari and Cheiron. Basically they challenge each other to create at least one-holiday card a month. Well, ofr this month, she sent open invitation for us to join this hop. Since I need to do this to build up my Christmas card stash, of course I jump in at the chance.

You should arrive here from my dear friend, the super talented, Emily Midgett. In case you miss any stop, I have complete link of the hop participants at the end of the post.

So, for my card, I played with Pinkfresh Studio Happy Holidays set. I think this is a great set to use for mass produce as there's not way too many area to color.



To add some festive feeling to the card, I trace the Happy Holidays part with Copic Spica glitter pen. Below is pic of the card from different angle and you could see the shimmer on the sentiment and the trees.



GIVEAWAY
Now, how about a giveaway to make the hop more fun. Along the way, some of the hop participants will do giveaway. You will need to check each blog. For my blog, I am giving away this Pinkfresh Studio Joy & Cheer stamp & dies set.

I feel like I don’t get to use my Christmas stamps enough, I usually make 40 cards of one style so maybe I use a couple stamps on a set and the rest don’t get used. I like how you used so many of the stamps on one card!

I love how fun and busy this card is but it just works perfectly with the bold sentiment. It seems like it would be perfect for the cover of a children's picture book! :)

Lee Newton said...

Very very cute clean and simple cards -- but I love it too much to say it. The stamps are adorable, the use of the clean colors with them is just right.
