TGIF! It is our Stamp Off Challenge Day. This time we decided to share our personal Christmas Cards. I know it is not really a challenge but it is still fun to see what each of us made.
I actually made two Christmas Cards this year. I usually make a bunch of the same but decided after making 20 of one card, I wanted to do something different. There were so many wonderful Christmas stamp sets in the Holiday Catalog that I had a hard time choosing. The first card I made used the stamp set called Star Of Light. This set has matching Thinlits called Starlight. I think this set is so elegant.
The second card I made was more cute than elegant. I used the stamp set called Santa’s Sleigh and the matching Thinlits (also called Santa’s Sleigh). The sentiment is from Merriest Wishes and the Designer Series Paper is called This Christmas.
I would like to wish everyone a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.
Now, let’s go see what Jackie and Buffy made for their Christmas cards.
Today’s Stamp Off Challenge was a hard one for me (even though it was my idea). We are supposed to use our favorite things from the Holiday Catalog. The problem I ran into was I like so many things from this catalog that it was hard to choose.
Here is my card:
I ended up choosing the Star of Light Stamp Set with the matching Thinlits called Starlight Thinlits (you can save 10% by purchasing both in a Bundle). I love this set because it has so many things you can do with it. The set of Thinlits is amazing and everything coordinates perfectly. This set even makes a 3D star.
One thing I knew I had to also use was the Copper Foil Sheets. This picture does not do it justice. These foil sheets are just gorgeous. They are a beautiful rich color and they shine amazingly. As always, Stampin’ Up! offers other matching products to go together. I used the Copper Embossing Powder for the sentiment and you can also get Copper Metallic Thread.
I cut the star our of Whisper White cardstock and used the negative piece for the card. I put Dimensionals on the back of it so it would be raised. Originally I added a bunch of stars and other things but decided I liked the simplicity of this better.
Now, let’s go see what Buffy and Jackie made. It is so much fun to not show each other our creations ahead of time.
Star of Light is a new stamp set that is in the 2016 Stampin’ Up! Holiday Catalog. It has a matching set of Thinlits (that are awesome!!) and you can save 10% by purchasing both in a Bundle. I think this is going to be super popular because it is so elegant.
We made this last night at our monthly club meeting. I used the new Copper Foil Sheets that are also in the Holiday Catalog. These are just gorgeous. I think they are my favorite Foil Sheets. The color is so rich and beautiful. We embossed the sentiment in the new Copper Embossing Powder to match.
The three layers of the star are all shapes from the set of Thinlits. One of the Thinlits makes a 3D star that is beautiful too.
