Here are some cards that I've made that are a bit more modern and different from the traditional cards:
Happy Hanukkah
Generic Holiday Card
Hanukkah Card
Hanukkah Day 7
More Chanukah Cards
Another One
An Old One

I hope these give you some ideas. I used patterned papers to help me get out of the traditional mode.

Thank you very much, Harriet! And it looks like I stumpled onto your blog over 2 years ago! I won't lose that bookmark again.

Thank you, Joni. That is indeed beautiful and unique. I like the script, too.

Kristen - thank you! I have (yet another) set of stamps on its way to my humble abode! I really like that set.

You are just FULL Of ideas! Thank you!

OMG, I have these same issues!

Zim Gali Gali stamps has some different images. I bought their beautiful Rosh Hashana stamps, but now that everyone in my family received them, I'm out of options. I just finished a "andy warhol-ish" apple card for this year. Really hard coming up with new ways to show the same traditional images.

Not to toot my own horn, but I had a burst of new ideas last year:
For my niece in college, I came up with this last Hanukkah - - Peace, Love, Latkes. I had to use a birds nest die to create the look of a latke.

I also did a window card that was cut out so the menorah was actually on the inside ...
Hanukkah Window by mshatzma - Cards and Paper Crafts at Splitcoaststampers

Used the medallion from SU set Jewish celebrations
Hanukkah Gatefold by mshatzma - Cards and Paper Crafts at Splitcoaststampers

Love that medallion, but i think they will all remember it if i use it again!

I look to online card sources for inspiration, and see how i can 'lift' the idea with what i have. I will definitely be checking all the links/ideas everyone has posted. We should have a stamp swap! My beautiful Rosh Hashana stamp was definitely a one time use, unless I hold it another 10 years until they forget it

I don't do separate Chanukah cards. I'm Jewish, and my late husband was Catholic, and I have friends of all sorts of religious persuasions (and none!) so I try to do a nondenominational "season's greetings" type card in December. On the other hard, I do send Rosh Hashana (Jewish New Year) cards to my Jewish family and friends, and I am often dismayed to see how few options are available for those cards. I agree that there are plenty of menorahs and dreidls, but few shofars or other High Holy Days images, especially given that this, not Chanukah, is the traditional card-sending season for us. I have a couple of New Year cards in my gallery, and this year's will be uploaded soon.

[I] Kind of off-topic, but I was really excited to see Anna Griffin include some Hanukkah images and sentiments in her annual Christmas cardmaking box this year. I like to get it and mix and match her stuff with my own handmade stuff and when I saw that she included things for Hanukkah, I was over the moon!


Where did you see this? I went to her website and it wasnt there-Xmas in general was not there yet.

What a terrific batch of cards! Lots of ideas! Thanks!

Joniworx-I saw them a long time ago but I like that set! Thanks!!! It's hard to keep up with the all the companies!

I purchased some unmounted stamps from Ruth's Jewish Stamps a couple of years ago, and was extremely disappointed in their quality! They were on blue rubber and very, very thin so they didn't stamp well or cleanly. I haven't used them since. Besides that, I was bombarded by advertising by Dave K. Will not purchase from them again, but some of the other sites that are posted in this forum look really interesting. Thanks for all the input.

Sorry that top part should have been a quote from Ambelleina. I must have hit the wrong thing.

here is card i did for my 22 yr old son last year. Was not perfect, but like the idea. I just had to eat some of the chocolate coins & save the foil. I used the thick foam dots behind the foils, but they still wrinkled. I had to use the computer for the saying (found free font called DS Sholom for word 'gelt'). While the saying is kind of snarky, i wrote something more heartfelt inside.

2 years ago, I found nice die's for Hanukkah ... CherryLynn Star of David trio

and Papertrey Ink Menorah Medley

Prior to these last 2 years, it was menorahs and dreidels every year! BTW, if you do Jewish New Year Cards, just found this beautiful stamp set at Rubber Cafe - love the pomegranate's for Rosh Hashana. Can't wait to emboss them in Ranger Cranberry EP next year...

Papertrey came out with some new sets this year that might freshen up your collections? There is a simple sentiment set (Keep it Simple Hanukah) and an image / sentiment set called Festival of Lights.

(scroll halfway down to see Nichole's samples)

and Laura Bassen's beautiful creations:
