October 2017 Christmas Card Challenges
 
Here is the thread for the Christmas Card Challenge for October 2017!



October is here, the leaves are changing colors and we need to really get moving if we are behind on our cards!


I suggest we make our own backgrounds for our cards and place ornaments or candles on our lovely backgrounds!!


Use embossing, heat or dry, the ombre technique, northern lights technique, stamp a background, be creative and do your favorite thing for your background, but remember to use a candle or an ornament somewhere on your card!

Please leave us a link to your card and make sure to use CCC17OCT in the title and in the Keywords!

Reminder, this is just a suggestion to help get you motivated and start on your 2017 Christmas Cards!

There is no 'deadline' to completing your Christmas cards for October, post anytime!

It's never too late to join....

You can join anytime during the year! If you need to skip a month or two, that is perfectly fine!

Used the shaving cream technique twice for VSN and used it to make Christmas Cards which fit into making your own background, so it works here as well.

Here's my first card for my October quoto:

Christmas Tree Ornament

DiHere 08-01-2017 04:03 AM

My two cards for October done! Just November to do and then I'll have enough for this year. Although, might be no harm to double check that!

Snowy Owl
Partridge in a Pear Tree (or, non-specific bird in snowflake wreath!)

susanbri 08-07-2017 04:21 PM

I didn't make a background for this, but figured this card sort of qualifies for the theme as I made an ornament for my card:

DTGD17nwilliams6 From Cake to Card

susanbri 08-09-2017 04:15 PM

This is number 2 out of 10 for my monthly quota. I made my own background and sort of added an ornament:

DTGD17stamperrobin Festive

susanbri 08-31-2017 02:13 PM

Another ornament card (though the background is plain):

Three Antique Ornaments

This is 3 of 10 for this month.

Shirleysgirl 09-06-2017 11:52 AM

Used distress oxides on this background. Those suckers are kind of addictive!You just never know what you are gonna get!

Number 4 of 10, again with ornaments (but no special background):

Dini's Ornaments

PaperPassionGirl 10-01-2017 12:02 PM

Here's one for me. I heat embossed the ornament with glitter embossing powder. Pleas visit my blog for a closer look at all that shimmer! Christmas Shimmer

susanbri 10-06-2017 09:34 PM

Number 5 of 10 - and this time I made my own background and added an ornament:

Another ornament. Variation on spirelli I used previously, and I like how this came out.

LizBeth1976 10-13-2017 07:28 PM

I hope this card qualifies for the October Christmas card challenge...it is an ornament, and I did make the alcohol ink background for the ornament... :-)

Christmas Cardinals,CCC17OCT
Here is my card for the CCC17OCT, Christmas card monthly challenge.
I hope I did this right. It has been a while, since I loaded a card. I used all die cuts, and some frosted lace stickles, and traditional Christmas colors of cs. This was a fun easy card to make. tfs.

LizBeth1976 10-16-2017 06:46 PM

Another card for October...it DOES have a candle on it! And I made the background, for Ann's challenge for Falliday Fest!

Joy to the World, Ornament

stampingwriter 10-26-2017 03:23 PM

The FEst Challenge to make an acrylic block BG turned out to be perfect for this theme. I'l end up with at least three cards. .

JBgreendawn 10-28-2017 04:22 PM

I have made tons and tons of Christmas cards since ( when ever I last linked or keyword ed any) (will work on that, some never made it in the gallery yet either)

but, here is one from today that uses a background ( peeking through the die) that I did
