{Mixed Media Tutorial} Dreams Take Flight ATC Set by Sanna

Hello everyone, it's Sanna here today with this months mixed media tutorial. Today I'd like to share a Artist Trading Card set and the steps, how I created them, with you. Here is what I made:

December Challenge - Theme and Sketch

Happy Friday, crafty friends! It's the first Friday of the month, which means it's the start of our Theme and Sketch Challenge! We had a colorful and color-filled November gallery -- thank you so much for playing with us last month! Check back on December 10 for the November Winners post.

The girls are back and for December, we're doing STAMPS & BIG WORDS. We'd like to see big, bold sentiments in your projects. Or you can go with the sketch. You can also combine both in your project -- we dig that ;-)

If you play, make sure you include the graphic(s) in your post and link back to this challenge post in order to qualify for our prizes :o) Please also read our simple rules, which you'll find toward the end of this post.

And here's the sketch:

Have a look at the STAMPlorations girls' projects inspired by this month's theme and/or sketch!

Hello, Winter! FREE Holiday/Winter-Themed Digital Stamps -- Download Today!

Hey STAMPlorations friends! Christmas is a mere 19 days away...can you believe it? It isn't officially winter yet but the lower temps and rains here in the central valley are telling me that autumn is so yesterday ;o) So in what looks like something that I'm going to be doing whenever the season changes, I'm making three new winter/holiday-themed digital stamps available to download for free. Enjoy! :o)

{Spotlight Project} Maria Combines Spotlight Ink Blending With DIY Stencils

Happy December, STAMP friends! I was playing with my Christmas Icons dies to make my own stencils and a couple more Christmas cards for my stash. I decided to add some spotlight ink blending to the mix too. And then I thought, why not on patterned paper? So I gave 'em all a try.

December CAS Challenge

Hello friends! Thank you for stopping by to join us for the launch of our December CAS challenge. Hope you are having a great day! The creativity and talent you showed in our November CAS gallery certainly brightened our dark November. We can't wait to see what you will create this month. As usual, we have an optional color twist which this month is green.

If you play, make sure you include the graphic below in your post and link back to this challenge post in order to qualify for our prizes :o) Please also read our simple rules, which you'll find toward the end of this post.

As you can see, the design team has really embraced that warm and fuzzy Christmas feeling this month. Or is it more the red panic of realising how many more Christmas cards we still need? If you (too) are in the throws of creating your last minute Christmas cards, going CAS is a great way to create quick cards which are easy to reproduce in large numbers. But don't feel restricted by the upcoming holidays. As always, you are free to link up anything that inspires you. The only thing we ask is that you create a CAS card. Please also make sure you adhere to our other rules at the end of the post - we would hate for you to miss out on one of the prizes!

{Spotlight Project} Monika Makes A Skinny Card

Hello STAMPlorations Friends! Today I'm taking you through the process of how I made a one-layer skinny card with matching envelope. I don't know about you, but I like skinny cards yet don't make them often enough.

I like their elegant look, and the new Positive Vibes stamp club set is perfect for this particular card format.
