Default Let's talk about our CCC06 ideas!!

I'm starting this thread to let everyone just chat about their thoughts and ideas for future cards---what do you want to do? Where can you find embellishments? Need help in a stamping slump?

Let's try this and see what happens!!

I just figured out what to do for my March cards. I'm trying to use Heavenly Heralds on them all so not a lot of coloring. Maybe I can learn to use subtle coloring with pastels? Already tried the bleach technique and am always on the lookout for more.

I'm going to make a card similar to this one of mine:

Card Idea

I'm going to use Paint Prints instead of In Full Bloom, and I don't know if I'll do stitching or not. I also will make the pocket red instead of pink.

I'd like some ideas for a Christmasy layout using the Thank You make-n-take from the SU Leadership. I loved the red and the blue and the twill and hardware, now I need to figure out what stamp to use.

Any suggestions?

My last year's card was very simple and elegant
http:////www.splitcoaststampers.com/...0&ppuser=10991

This year's CCC06 challenge card (currently back in approval stage because I edited it to include "February")
http:////www.splitcoaststampers.com/...0&ppuser=10991

has been a really bulky card that I'll be hand-delivering to neighbors and co-workers (I make up 40 gift baskets and spread holiday cheer that way), but I still need 120 "real" Christmas cards for this year. I'm definitely not a cutesy person (as evidenced in my SCS gallery), and I do want to the use same layout as that Leadership make-n-take. Any suggestions would be most appreciated.

Thanks,
Kelly Rae

I have no idea what the Leadership make and take looks like, so I'm no help at all. Do you have a link to what it looks like?

There were two make-n-takes at the January SU! Leadership event and SU! offered kits for purchase. I guess they made more kits than were wanted at the event, so SU! offered them for purchase to the rest of the demos.

Here's a link to what was actually made at the Leadership event
http:////www.splitcoaststampers.com/...&si=leadership

Here's another take on that same layout with the same stamp set
http:////www.splitcoaststampers.com/...&si=leadership

This is an example using the papers and embellishments but a different stamp set
http:////www.splitcoaststampers.com/...&si=leadership

So my request for creative advice is to figure out what stamp sets to use but keeping the same papers and embellishments (but maybe change them around a bit).

Thanks for your help,
Kelly Rae

I'm not able to see the first card but...
Happiest of Holidays would fit the small layer with the matching wheels it would look great.
If you have Sweet holidays, the gingerbread would look good with the candy stamps for background.
If you have Sweet seasons, the winter scene would be good (maybe a bit big)
I'm not sure if the snowman from Tags and More is too small, but there is another.
I love Madonna and Child but the Dove might be too small and Mother and Child too big. It's a thought though.

Taryn,
That's a great idea. I already was using Happiest of Holidays and the matching wheel (holly) so maybe I'll use the star elements.
Thanks!

I'm torn between Loads of Love and the snowglobe layout shown by Little somethings for April. I'll probably do both at some point this year.

I liked the look of my whilte angel. I might use that in April's card but if I do I will definately emboss next time. I'm not exactly sure what to do with the rest of it. I might have to take a look at the sketch challenges. I want to use Heavenly Herald for all my cards this year so I won't have to rememver what I did for who in future years. It's just so big that it's rather limiting. I'm sure I'll end up doing a pocket card later.

When I click on the link for the July thread, I get a message saying it is an invalid link or something to that effect.

I'm so exited with the new catty. The Four Season's Double Sided Paper is PERFECT for a pocket card for the Heavenly Heralds. I've wanted to do a pocket card with the double sided paper but they just weren't Christmasy. There are also many great samples in the new catty to case.
