Clearly Digi Stamps (Clear Dollar Stamps) is sponsoring the Twist of Faith Challenge #17 – White and Gold Only. So come over and play as the random prize winner will receive a $15 voucher for use at the Clearly Digi Stamps store.
I try to play along in challenges that CDS sponsors which sometimes is a challenge….as this one proved to be. I didn’t want to make a Christmas card so trying to fit white and gold only can be tricky. I do like that I was pushed out of my comfort zone because I like how the card turned out. I used The Deconstructed Sketch #81 which was a tag sketch that I modified to fit a card.
Hope you will come play with us.

My good friend Judy loves Angels and that is what her Christmas tree decorations are done in. So I wanted to make her a special card for her. The first card was made for her and she should be getting it this week. I had some supplies left over so I decided to make one of the ladies at the retirement home a Christmas card. She is dear to me and an angel in my life so I thought these images were also fitting for her.

So Linda made the theme easy this month….Anything Christmas!! I actually had product from last year when I tried to make a card and I didn’t end up liking the card that much. So I pulled out all the product I had cut or left over from it and decided to make new cards this year. So I came up with two different versions of the card. One uses a slightly bigger circle of Santa then the other.
And this stocking was also printed out last year but never made anything with it. So I decided to use it up and make a circle card.

Birthday, Clearly iStamp, Misc Cards, Thinking of you
CAS, crown, digital stamp, embossing, flower, negative space, pre-colored, princess, thinking of you
Finally it’s digital stamp release day at Clearly Digi Stamps (Clear Dollar Stamps)!! I couldn’t wait to show you what I got to play with and what I made. I was really happy with these cards. I guess taking a break and making scrapbook pages helped get the creative juices flowing again.
The first card I made was using the digital stamp Flower Garden – color version.
I printed the flowers and cut them out. Then I ran them through the Xyron “x” sticker maker. I embossed a line on the card and printed the sentiment right on the white piece. Place the “flower stickers” and the card was done! Easy peesy!! And I love how it turned out.
1) Dec Card Challenge @ scrapbook.com – sketch category.
2) CAS-ual Fridays Challenge #82 (CFC82) – Create a CAS project that features scoring… and no, the fold on your card does not count *wink*
The 2nd card I used the digital stamp Princesses – color version.
I can’t wait for more time to craft because I have several more ideals planned for this digital stamp set!! I used Mojo Monday #248 Sketch for my inspiration.

Christmas/Winter, For Fun Challenge
candy, christmas, gingerbread, home, house, Merry Christmas, winter
This was such a fun challenges for me because it was different! I’m not sure I have seen a Christmas Challenge before that required a “house” on the project. Which I have bought paper in the past to make a Christmas cards with a home on it but STILL haven’t made them. This one I made unexpected when a friend came over to “play” for a couple hours. She brought over a cute 6 x 6 paper pad and asked if I would want to make a card using some of the paper. This card came to me very quickly which doesn’t always happen so I was very excited. I cut up enough pieces so she could make one too! Thanks Judy for the paper!!
I hope you will take the challenge of having a “home” on your Christmas project and play with us at For Fun Challenges!!
