December Swanky Stamper
<a href="http://simplystamping.blogspot.com/2013/11/christmas-trio.html" target="_blank"> Tricia Traxler December Swanky Stamper </a>

Our November TCP Tuesday Challenge was a "What's on your desk" challenge. That is, to stamp on card and then make two more cards from what is on your desk.

When these three cards using <a title="Vintage Holiday" href="http://thecatspajamasrs.com/TCP/product/vintage-holiday/" target="_blank">Vintage Holiday</a> by Tricia Traxler came across my desk I was just wowed. Her choice of papers are unexpected, yet stunning. Even though there is a vintage feel to the cards they are contemporary and beautiful.

They feel like the season. Homey, nostalgic and hopeful. Wonderful job Tricia!

There weren't a lot of entries for this challenge, but the ones that came in were stunning.

Like this one from <a href="http://indysdesigns.blogspot.com/2013/11/a-trio-of-holiday-cards.html">Debbie aka Indy</a>. Her cards are rich with textures, like the burlap in the left card that using the <a title="Away We Go" href="http://thecatspajamasrs.com/TCP/product/away-we-go/">Away We Go</a> stamp set. And, the middle one using the <a title="Merry Everything" href="http://thecatspajamasrs.com/TCP/product/merry-everything/">Merry Everything</a> set. The <a title="Birthday Bunny" href="http://thecatspajamasrs.com/TCP/product/birthday-bunny/">Birthday Bunny</a> set is just a perfect choice for a tag that just peeks out of the bag.

<a href="http://thecatspajamasrs.com/TCP/wp-content/uploads/Ashley3.jpg"><img class="aligncenter size-full wp-image-8719" alt="Ashley3" src="http://thecatspajamasrs.com/TCP/wp-content/uploads/Ashley3.jpg" width="330" height="400" /></a>

How about these three by <a href="http://hearthugsdesigns.blogspot.com/2013/11/tcp-tues-make-3-cards.html" target="_blank">Ashley Nguyen Newell </a>?

<a href="http://thecatspajamasrs.com/TCP/wp-content/uploads/Ashley2.jpg"><img class="aligncenter size-full wp-image-8718" alt="Ashley2" src="http://thecatspajamasrs.com/TCP/wp-content/uploads/Ashley2.jpg" width="330" height="400" /></a>

They are so simple, using the <a title="Mustaches CutUps" href="http://thecatspajamasrs.com/TCP/product/mustaches-cutups/" target="_blank">Mustaches</a> CutUps and the <a title="Simply Said" href="http://thecatspajamasrs.com/TCP/product/simply-said/" target="_blank">Simply Said </a>stamp set, but they are stunning in their simplicity.

<a href="http://thecatspajamasrs.com/TCP/wp-content/uploads/Ashley1.jpg"><img class="aligncenter size-full wp-image-8717" alt="Ashley1" src="http://thecatspajamasrs.com/TCP/wp-content/uploads/Ashley1.jpg" width="330" height="400" /></a>

These are just a couple of the entries for last month's challenge. Come back tomorrow for the December Challenge!
