Merry Christmas Handmade Card

Share This!

ccl_availablenow Hello my friends!  I hope you had an amazing weekend!  The little girls and I went out for pizza with some friends, then came home and watched Napoleon Dynamite (have you ever watched it?  so weird and hilarious at the same time!) on Friday night and boy, was a I refreshed and recharged after that!

Our Stamp of Approval release was super fun and successful and within two days of ordering opening, stampers from across the country were receiving their collections.  Talk about lightening fast shipping!

Within about 9 hours, we were 50% sold out and now we are getting close to being totally sold out.  I expect in the next day or so, ordering will be closed for good.

The products from this collection will be available much later in 2017, but you won’t get the amazing value and the PDF Project Guide for free.  Click here to order yours now before they are gone!

Every quarter I hear from friends that missed out and that’s always a giant bummer!

There are a ton of card samples popping up on Facebook and StampNation and I can not believe all the creative ways stampers are using this collection…and I think Colleen sums it up perfectly:

colleen-testimonial I’m not done playing with the Candy Cane Lane Collection, so you’ll be seeing more handmade cards for the holidays….including my card today!

merry-christmas-card I can’t get over how adorable these swags are with the presents nestled in them!  And that Peppermint Stick Background peeking out the bottom?  And the sequins?  I just love it!

Merry Christmas Handmade Card

I’ve been a big, giant fan of non-traditional Christmas colors for a few years, but I think this year, the tables have turned and the traditional colors are stealing my heart!


Once I finished these, I didn’t stop.  Before I put these supplies away, I made FOUR more cards and a video tutorial showing the process behind making these cards.  There are so many different layouts to use with the same basic stamps, dies and ink colors!


Speaking of StampNation, our biggest, most exciting event of the year is coming up!

Over at StampNation, we celebrate World Card Making Day in a BIG way!  Since we are a worldwide community with card makers from more than 40 countries, it’s pretty appropriate, right?


This year, we’ll be having challenges all weekend long, beginning at 8 am eastern on Friday, September 30 and ending on Sunday evening, October 2.  We post a new challenge every few hours, but if you can’t get to them all this weekend, no worries!

Our challenges never close, so you can participate in them 2 years from now if you want!

We’ll have prizes (lots of great prizes!!!) and even Live Chats!  Can’t wait!

If you find the site’s not for you, a simple email to cancel and we’ll take care of you right away!  (but we think you’ll hang with us for a while ;)  )

Can’t wait to see you there, my friend!

    Super cute card!! I have my fingers crossed that the SOA boxes will last until Thursday. Then I can buy one if they are not sold out. I am glad things went well for the release and that you had a good weekend. My was very busy as I moved to a larger apartment, so my son could move in. Everything was done in three days, but then I got sick lol

    My CCL Collection arrived today. So happy. Not feeling well for last several weeks so I was in no hurry, but, happy to have it in my hands. Watched your vid today. LOVE all FIVE cards you made today. In my apartments post office a gal commented on my SOA pretty box. Wanted to know what’s in it. I told her about my craft, SOA, the stamps and dies. I opened the pretty box and showed her all the goodies. Her mouth dropped open and her eyes lit up. You just might have a new subscriber. I do my best!
