Caffeinated Christmas Card Challenge #18 - Christmas Happens

It's time for a new challenge over at the Caffeinated Christmas Card Challenge blog!  This month our sponsor is Rubbernecker Stamps and the theme is Christmas, Coffee, and Masculine!  We have an awesome prize for one random winner too!

Link up for your chance to win!  Head over to the Caffeinated Christmas Card blog for all of the details!

I have two cards for you today because I'm on the CCCC design team and the Rubbernecker Stamps design team, so I made one for each!

I used that adorable owl coffee set, Words Can't Espresso for both and added some Christmas to the sentiments from the set with some creative masking (and I may or may not have cut apart some because I'm probably going to do this again!)

For this one, I created the background using the Plaid layered stencil set and used blues and greens and a bit of yellow for a more masculine feel.

For this one, I used a plaid background die.  I also added santa hats to both from another cute owl set in the shop.

I have links to all of the products I used at the end of this post as well as links to all of the other caffeinated items available in the Rubbernecker shop!  (There are a lot!)

I'm playing along with the Double Trouble Challenge Blog Masculine challenge and I added plaid for the twist.  I also added blue for a third item from the Festive Friday Challenge Inspiration Graphic to play along over there too!

Be sure to check out both and play along!

Now head on over to the Caffeinated Christmas Card Challenge blog for more inspiration and to link up!  Huge thank you to Rubbernecker Stamps for being our sponsor!


Here are links to all of the Rubbernecker caffeinated products:

Hi-land Cows - Miss Ink Stamps

Have you seen the new Highland Cows stamp set from Miss Ink Stamps??

It's adorable with lots of equally adorable punny sentiments!  But I used it here with the Hi from the Hi Swirl Frame set for a simple Hello.

I random stamped some of the sunflowers and colored them for the background of my Hi... TBH I meant for it to be the upper level, but messed up when I die cut it... but I actually like it for the edges with the darker center... so I went with it!

Thanks so much for stopping!  Be sure to check out the new release!

Crafty Elves Countdown to Christmas - May 2023 Edition

Merry Christmas!  JK!  It's not Christmas, but it is the 25th of the the month and time for the Crafty Elves to share the Christmas cards we made this month!  I've got one card here and then you can head on over to my fellow Crafty Elves places, Debra, Michael, Misty and we have a special guest joining us this month, AJ!

I'm away this week so I only had time to make one card this month!  I made a quick design using some products from Uniko and papers from my latest Your Paper Insider box!

I used the Uniko Christmas Folk Snowflake Stencil for my background with some Transfer Gel Duo and I applied some gold foil while it was still tacky, but I didn't want a solid foil so I let the gel sit a little bit longer and added the foil lightly with just pressure from my hand.  Then that awesome Sparkling Snowflake from that gorgeous gold paper popped up on the top and a sentiment from Uniko's Season of Beauty stamp set embossed in gold on more of the beautiful Shimmery blue cardstock.

That's me for today!  AND I have a picked a winner from last month's post.  I'm giving away a pack of new and gently used stamps and dies from my stash and I picked one winner from my posts here and on Instagram!  Maria Patrick is the winner!  I'll announce it over on Instagram too.

Thanks so much to everyone for all of the love!  

Now don't forget to visit my fellow elves to see what they have for you today!
