There is no 'deadline' to completing your Christmas cards for March,
February is such a short month but this month we have an extra 3 days yes! I thought we should have extra time to think about the stamps, background paper, designer paper, etc. that have not been used or not used enough.
My challenge is to have a good look at your Christmas stash and seek out these items and find a fun way to craft with them. I found "It's a Stretch" stamp set from SU! I may have to make a couple of these, it was fun.
Everyone has such beautiful cards. I am having so much fun this year with the challenge. I have actually been able to get some posted. I have January & February finished and can't wait to get started on March.
These cards are all about the lost being found. First of all, the card in the middle was an old card I had started but never completed. While I was organizing my craftroom and cleaning out drawers I found my Victoria Case stamps. So I decided to use the Nestabilities that I reciently got back from my mom who borrowed them last year, to cut out the image. When I was coloring the Snowman, I wanted to somehow add a little bling to his hat and wasn't sure at first how to do that. Glitter!!!! Haven't used glitter in forever.... Well you get the idea
OK got March done yesterday while it was cold here in TX and I was staying inside where it was warm The challenge was to check our stash and find something we had not used....I found the stamp set "Stitched Stockings" bought this set and the punch and have hardly used them, also found some embossed snowflake pieces I had stashed away, each card is a little different but I'm happy with the outcome...TFL
Ok, Susan; I'm almost ready to take on your challenge...today's update. I cleaned out the cupboard and all the paper is in color families, even in the scrap box..... And I want you to know you are the blame for all this activity...I can't very well rise to the challenge if I don't know what I have or where it's at...but now I do...so game on!!!
Here are my five cards for the March Christmas Card Challenge. I am sorry I am not following your 'theme' but I have made so many cards already this year, that I decided to just post my five and be done with it. Thanks for all you do for us.
I love the challenge you've posted, Susan! This one isn't for it but I will definitely do some this month by searching through my stash! There are Christmas dps at the bottom of the drawer and stamps I've forgotten to use for ages!
If anyone needs more inspiration, check out the weekly Merry Monday challenges on lionsmane's Always Playing with Paper blog. I did this card for it.
For CCC March card 1, the stash I used was the tiny little snow flake punch I've had for years. It's a Tonic Punch, and I've never used it until now.
For CCC March card 2, the stash I used was the Graphic 45 DP paper and the Happy Holidays ribbon I've had for a long time. Nice to be using up these supplies!
For CCC March card 3, the stash I used were the copper brads I've had for a long time. I also used some sponge sticks I've had for a couple of years to color in the Santa. I like the way it looks soft and aged.
