Svetlana created a bright and merry scene using our Holly Branch and Book Life sets for this creative holiday card. We love how Svetlana stretched her Book Life stamps to create a holliday card with this set!

Congratulations, Svetlana! Please email us at to claim your gift certificate.



Here are three additional projects that especially stood out to us:


Kristina’s created a beautiful holiday card using our layered Fresh Cut Anemones. We love the creative and artful way that she stretched her layered anemone stamps to create this floral holiday card.


Dana’s merry shaker card created with our Christmas Wreath Builder caught our eye for this holiday challenge.


Sayaka created a festive card using our Holiday Love Poinsettia. We love the pink color palette that she chose for this card!

For this month’s new challenge, we have a fun and seasonal Mood Board Challenge!


Create any type of paper crafting project inspired by our Mood Board. You may be inspired by images in the photos or by some of the colors you see in the images on the board. We leave it up to you in regards to what you choose to take away from this board. We cannot wait to see how you interpret our Mood Board for this month’s challenge! Scroll down to see some inspiration by our Guest Designer and design team members and how they have interpreted this month’s Challenge.
