52CCT and Christmas Stamping All Year Long

Christmas Stamping All Year Long has mini cards as a challenge this week and the prize is 7 free digis from Bugaboo stamps. Now I am definitely NOT a fan of digital stamps, but I would make an exception for Bugaboo - they are just too much fun! So I checked on this challenge and there were 3 hours left! No problem - speed is my specialty!

I had this negative die cut laying around form a previous challenge and it needed to be used, so I quickly threw this together:



The die cut is from Memory Box - Scribble Tree, the sentiment is Paper Smooches - Christmas sampler. Some enamel dots and the card is finished!

and who knows, may be I'll be the lucky one and get the luck of the draw;)

And since I used some left overs I am also going to link this card up with the Pixies Crafty Snippets Playground, what fun!

And here is something else - a new discovery of mine:

X-mas on Tuesday
I am not sure about the rules - maybe none? If I find out, I'll let you know...

Ahhh, we were supposed to pick a previous challenge for this weeks theme at 52CCT....



 

So I settled for sketch #&....and then I read, after may card was finished, that we were supposed to also combine a color with the sketch... :(

I browsed through the color choices and look, what I found - blue red and green - and do you see those golden (yellow) accents on those  ornaments? Just perfect for my colors choices  :)

So here is my card:


Perhaps it qualifies.... if not, I have a cute card to send to someone for Christmas!

Two great cards! Love that you used the negative of the tree! Such a great idea and a really cool look. the "ornaments" hanging off the branches are cool, too. Thanks for playing with CSAYL.

Oh,ist mir gar nicht aufgefallen dass wir zwei ältere Challenges kombinieren sollten. Da hab ich mal wieder zu oberflächlich gelesen...
Zwei wunderschöne Karten hast du gebastelt, vor allem die erste, die gefällt mir besonders gut in ihrer schlichten Einfachheit!!
