Blog Winner, Christmas cards, Tutorial, Ornaments, Mini Album & Sparkle Challenge

Hi Everyone,  I loved reading all your comments on what you love to create most, so I'm posting new & past cards, ornaments and mini albums today.

I have a random.org winner for the $50.00 Giveaway,  #64  Donna from TN who said her favorite things to make are wall hanging trimmed with beads or pendants. I’m so happy Donna won as I’ve seen her post comments for years.
 Look at this fabulous Christmas card DT Member Linda Duke created and she has a video tutorial here on her blog showing how she made it using 2 copies of an image from CD #2 with Spellbinders dies.

DT Leader Vicki Chrisman used our on sale Born to Fly Stamp Set to make Christmas Fairies and paper pieced their outfits and hats with papers from CD #1.  You can see the other cute fairy card and details here on Vicki's Blog

DT Member Julie Campbell also has some cute fairies here on her blog she created and used our Altered Fairy Scraps for one.  I also came across this pretty Christmas card Julie made last year using an image from our Christmas Booklet and on sale Seasons Greetings Stamp set

I also came across this Christmas album past DT Member Flo Teixara created and she designed so many spectacular mini albums you can see here in our Gallery. I couldn't find this Christmas album on her blog but I did see this cool Country Farm Album she made using Farm theme Stamps & Scraps

The tiny gift bag, present, wreath, stocking and cinnamon stick logs are those little details that make her albums so special.

Here is a cute tree decorating idea that I came across from a few years ago when past DT Member Lisa Zappa got a great deal on a bunch of old Bingo cards and decided to decorate her tree with them.  She used our on sale Vintage Christmas Stamp Set

                                     Snowbunnies on sale stamps used on this one

Here is Lisa's tree decorated with all the bingo cards she did as well as from friends she sent bingo card to decorate and mail back.

This is a cute ornament idea by DT Member Heidi Blankenship to use wire, punched snowflakes and buttons you can buy in bulk, glued around images from our Christmas Scraps.

I spotted this very cute cheese ball snowman with a recipe on Julie's blog; Less than a Perfect Life of Bliss and had to share her fun idea.

I'm hosting the challenge over at Splitcoast Stampers this week to create something with SPARKLE using any of our products - you can even use any of our free printables like this Printable Vintage Santa on my last post, 

or the Retro Santa from last year, or Christmas Angels from year before - but it doesn't have to have a Christmas theme. You can add sparkle with gems, paints, pens and any glitter products such as German Glass Glitter, Stickles, etc.  I will get random.org to pick a  $50.00 winner next Monday, Dec 12/11. 
 Use Code:  CSSC200

Tomorrow I will be posting some Quick Christmas Card Printable Tutorials sheets using our Christmas Creative Scraps as so many of you have ordered them lately!

PS - If you are wondering why we are having the BIG SALE on all our Clear Stamps and many of our other products you can scroll back and read previous blog posts or read HERE
