Happy December, everyone! ‘Tis the season for holiday cheer…and a new monthly contest too!
During December, we’re challenging you to create card sets, which of course make wonderful holiday gifts! We also have a sketch challenge, with three sketch options that you can find HERE. And finally, our featured technique for the month is pocket cards — be sure to check out Shari’s fabulous new technique article for one idea that will get those creative juices flowing. Complete details on dates, prizes, and more can be found over on the contest page. We can’t wait to see what you create! The hustle and bustle of the holiday season can be a bit overwhelming, and what better way to relax than by getting a little inky? Enjoy!
Next, it’s time to announce our second group of of November contest winners. Hooray! Our Flickr pool was flooded with gorgeous entries for the contest and as always, selecting winners was a real challenge. Thanks to everyone who entered! Here we go now with our November2011B selections…
First up, our Fresh Face who proves that orange can be a FAB holiday color too! littlemrsp has created this fun tag card with one of our Christmas Reindeer stamps. We love her clean and simple design and she’s added the perfect amount of bling. Such fun!
Firstly, michellesielman, who created a number of incredible entries for this month’s challenge! This stunning Christmas card blew us away with its fabulous use of color, bling and glitter. We love everything about it. And check out her adorable peek-a-boo gingerbread man tag too… so cute!
Nancyljk has made this bright and cheery wooden Christmas tag, with stamps from our Tree-Mendous set. All the little details added to this colorful and bright tag really make it shine. Gorgeous work, Nancy!
This beautiful card by Wteresa15 was inspired by this button tree card by our own Shari. We love the addition of the window, and the wonderfully original choice of lavender for a holiday card. And just look at all that BLING! Yum!
And finally, moonpie creations (Lisa A.). Her fun embellished tag features both a vintage Hero Arts stamp - Needles and Cones - and a new one - Holiday Background, and her embossing is simply beautiful! She even toned down the shininess of her charms with a marker pen to add to the vintage feel…what fabulous attention to detail!
