Today's SCS CAS challenge is to use snowflakes - perfect for making a Christmas card. Here's what I made for it:

Snowflake Ribbon

Posted my first 8/10 tonight on my blog. Haven't had a chance to upload to the gallery yet. Not sure any meet the challenge criteria, but I like them.

Here is my first design for January (before I saw the theme was "Peace" :-))

You don't need to follow the theme, Julie - it's just a suggestion. Filling your quota is the important thing!

I am finally able to get one of my January cards linked up. It's been done for about 5 days, but I had to play nurse-maid to my sick husband for a few days. So haven't had much time to get more stamping done.

I saw a cool sketch challenge so I used that to do another card for January for Christmas! Christmas Oval by muscrat - Cards and Paper Crafts at Splitcoaststampers

Ok here is my second design for the Peace theme:

I made 5 of these so I think this will be all I make for January. I really need to make some Birthday cards!

Here is card #7 for the January challenge of peace. Three more to go.

Peaceful Wishes

Jay_Bee 01-10-2014 09:25 AM

Here are my January cards with the theme of peace. Not quite the traditional dove or olive branch but peace none the less.

Hello Ladies: I am hoping someone can help me out. I can't find the name of the stamp set I used for this January challenge. The sticker came off. It's an old SU stamp set that has a small dove, a tree, a bell, and a word saying that says Peace Joy Love. Anyone know what this was called? And if I can't find it, any ideas how to enter my card? Thanks

Hi everyone - I hope you don't mind a gallery moderator popping in to answer Gayle's questions:

That sounds like the set Christmas Peace. Here's a link to it on eBay so you can see if it matches your set:
Christmas Peace Set of 4 Rubber Stamps Stampin Up 1995 | eBay

SU retired that stamp set before the SCS gallery existed, so no gallery category was set up for it here.

There's a special "Christmas Collection" category in the Gallery especially for Christmas cards that don't fit neatly into any of the stamp set categories or technique categories. All of you are always welcome to upload your Christmas Card Challenge creations there. On the upload page where it says "Select a main gallery", use the drop-down menu and choose "Events and Special Collections". That will activate the sub-gallery box on the right, where you can choose "Christmas Collection".

I don't make a habit of checking this thread (Kathy/Wrose alerted me to Gayle's question, so I stepped in to answer), so if any of you have any additional questions about uploading your CCC cards, please feel welcome to send me a PM.

I would join y'all in your challenges, but since I'm on a design team for an off-SCS Christmas card challenge blog, that keeps me busy enough with making Christmas cards throughout the year! ;) Thanks for giving the SCS gallery some variety, especially during the spring and summer!

Here's another card for January! I'm hoping to have mine all done before October! Christmas Skates CCC14 January by muscrat - Cards and Paper Crafts at Splitcoaststampers

gl1253 01-12-2014 05:22 PM

I'm really going to enjoy this challenge. I've decided to make tags, too cause I ran out last year.

Here's my first attempt.

gl1253 01-13-2014 07:28 PM

In the mood to stamp tonight, so I am way ahead of my goal! I made this card for January's challenge, although it doesn't say peace anywhere on the outside of the card. But making this brought me a lot of peace tonight:)

Thanks!!! I'll load it there, too.

Another card for January, but not theme oriented. That's 8 for January! I love making Christmas cards. Winter Wishes by muscrat - Cards and Paper Crafts at Splitcoaststampers

Here is my card for the January challenge. I'm hoping to do better this year!

I made these tags today while sitting at the allergist. Time well spent and at this pace, I'll have enough gift tags when Christmas comes again.

I'm envious that you can work on this while at the allergist! Just when I would get everything out, they'd be ready for me! LOL

So much for my plan to get back home after the holidays and use some of the Christmas card challenges to inspire me to get my CCC14 cards done on time this year. Dislocated my finger the Monday before New Year's Day and my hand/finger are still numb and bruised. THAT puts a damper on things!

By tonight, I just couldn't stand not being creative, so looked around my stamp table to see what I had laid there to play with and found some die cut trees my friend, Loll Thompson, had sent me before the holidays. Found an appropriate digi sentiment and was well on my way to making some cards. Feels soooooooooooooooo good to have done something creative!

Hopefully I'll figure out 2 more before the end of the month that won't require me to actually stamp.

Cards done! I'm not sure how well I kept to the challenge this month - I started off with great intentions and then the cards got away from me a bit. I've only to do three a month this year, rather than five the last couple of years, so I'm going to enjoy my lower limit this year. I'm trying to remember to make the cards flatter - most of mine last year would have needed extra postage so I tended to use those for people I was sending a package to anyway.

I did a blog post and got my final two for the month posted on my blog. Both use the challenge theme. I will upload them at some point, but I know we can't on Sundays.

Still working on cards with a peace theme. Here's another:

Dove on Scallops

Oddesigns 01-21-2014 09:24 AM

Here's my design for the month. "Peace" is my traditional holiday card sentiment, so this was an easy one for me.

I'm home with the flu and it's snowing like crazy, so I'm going to try to get my entire set done today.

Peaceful Tree.

Well, I did 8 cards for January, and when I first did them, I stamped a very pretty Peace on Earth in an oval for the greeting. I even made the cards. But it just didn't set right. Here's the card I CASEd. CTS57 Holly Jolly Sparkly Christmas by jillastamps - Cards and Paper Crafts at Splitcoaststampers
I did not have her greeting and punch, but I had the old versions! Anyway. I had these cards fitting the theme but the colors and circles scream SANTA at me. I had to change it, so I used Un-Do to pull up the Peace on Earth ovals, and made these, and am happy with it. I made 8 all the same. I haven't uploaded them to SCS yet.

I thought if I get a couple of Peace ones made, I'll post them. I did try! Oh well. These could go in a glitter month, I suppose. I'm just happy I got 8 cards made. lol

scootsv 01-21-2014 07:09 PM

I have so many ideas floating around in my mind! Here are my four cards for the month of January for CCC14.

January #1

January #2

January #3

January #4

Thanks for the work you do for this challenge! tfl

Oddesigns 01-22-2014 08:12 AM

Full set, with slightly alternate design:

Peaceful Tree

And with that, I'm done for January. :D

stiz2003 01-23-2014 03:04 PM

I finally did one for January.

susanbri 01-23-2014 03:19 PM

I took a break from peace-themed cards, and made two with poinsettias instead:

Poinsettia for Sharon

A Flower for GardenDiva

stiz2003 01-23-2014 03:45 PM

One more for today.
Drummer Boy Again

susanbri 01-25-2014 11:04 AM

A couple more for January. One for the online stencilling course I'm taking:

Misted Snowflake Stencil

and one for this week's SCS Ways to Use It and Free for All challenges:

Warm Colours in Just Ink

swldebbie 01-25-2014 02:56 PM

Another "stamp free" Christmas card for the January quota. Are trees peaceful? That's about as close to the Peace theme as I am likely to get this month.

Sparkly Christmas

swldebbie 01-25-2014 05:26 PM

Whoo hoo! The last of my 4 cards for January. And this one actually using a stamp. Felt good to get ink on my fingers again.

Merry Mistletoe

stiz2003 01-26-2014 11:53 AM

One more for January
