A Christmas Card Challenge

Good morning everyone.  Today is another day for a new Stamp Off Challenge.  This time our challenge is to make a Christmas Card (or project).

Here is the front of my card.

I decided to make a Fun Fold Card so here is what happens when you open the next part of the card.

This is what it looks like when you open the last part of the card.

I used the stamp set called Timeless Tidings.  This is a great holiday sentiment set that is in the 2018 Holiday Catalog.  I really like the font and there are also three little images (the other two are a poinsettia and holly).  The Designer Series Paper  is called Festive Farmhouse.  I love this paper so much I actually used it on my personal Christmas cards I sent out.  I will show you that card in the next couple of weeks.  The colors I used are Gray Granite (one of my new favorite colors) and Cherry Cobbler (an old favorite).

Here are some of the dimensions of the cardstock I used.

4.25″ x 5.5″ Gray Granite cardstock (for the card base)

3″ x 11″ Whisper White cardstock scored at 5.5″

3″ x 5.5″ piece of Designer Series Paper

3.25″ x 5.5″ Cherry Cobbler cardstock

1″ x 5.5″ Cherry Cobbler cardstock (for the banner) scored at 4 1/8″.  I hand cut the points on the end.

Now let’s go see what Buffy and Jackie made.  It is alway such a pleasant surprise!

Product List

Holiday Catalog Products

The 2018 Stampin’ Up!® Holiday Catalog became available one September 1st.  It has so many awesome products in it that I could not possibly show them all to you.  Below are some great videos showing some of the products.

The first product I want to show you is the Take Your Pick Tool.  This is a must have tool if you use sequins or dots.  One end has putty that is sticky so you can easily pick up sequins and place them where you want them to be.  There are refills available when needed. The other end has two interchangeable double ended tips.  One is a mini spatula that you can use to pick up dots and a paper piercer.  The other ends have a small stylus and a large stylus. Here is a video by Stampin’ Up!® showing the tool.

There are also two kits included within this catalog.  One is called Timeless Tidings Project Kit where you can make 20 Christmas Cards.  It is a great way to get your cards done quickly and easily.  It goes with the stamp set also called Timeless Tidings.

The other kit called Sincerely Santa Project Kit.  This kits gives you all the supplies for 30 Christmas tags.  Who couldn’t use those!?!  The goes with the Sincerely Santa stamp set.

The links to order these kits and stamps plus the Take Your Pick Tool are below.
