Each month, I challenge the members of my Stampin' Clubs to create a project for a contest and submit it to me. I assign a theme for them each month.
The theme for July was Christmas in July. They could create any kind of project they wanted as long as it had a Christmas theme.
Voting was really, really tight! Only one vote separated the first place project from the second place one and several others were close behind.
The first place project was submitted by Alayne Kerbert. Alayne created this pretty stair-step card:
Uses Snow Swirled Set (retired) plus Old Olive Classic Stampin' Pad, Rich Razzleberry Classic Stampin' Pad, Old Olive Card Stock, Very Vanilla Card Stock, Dashing Designer Series Paper (retired), Sponge Daubers, Pearl Basic Jewels, Rich Razzleberry 3/8" Taffeta Ribbon (retired), SNAIL Adhesive, Sticky Strip, Stampin' Trimmer, Paper Snips, Craft Scissors, and Extra-Large Oval Punch.
The second place card was created by Shannon and is a fun, snowman card:
Uses Snow Much Fun Set (retired) plus Pumpkin Pie Classic Stampin' Pad, Basic Black Classic Stampin' Pad, Smoky Slate Classic Stampin' Pad, Pool Party Classic Stampin' Pad, Night of Navy Classic Stampin' Pad, Lucky Limeade Classic Stampin' Pad (retired), Whisper White Card Stock, Pool Party Card Stock, Night of Navy Card Stock, Blender Pens, Vintage Faceted Designer Buttons, Whisper White Baker's Twine, SNAIL Adhesive, Glue Dots, Stampin' Trimmer, Craft Scissors, Big Shot Die-Cutting Machine, Multipurpose Platform, Standard Cutting Pads, and Northern Flurry Embossing Folder.
Alayne and Shannon each get $5 off their next order. Congratulations, ladies, they are wonderful cards!
