Published by at 9 27 pm under Challenges,Copics,General Purpose Cards,MFT

MERRY CHRISTMAS, EVERYONE!!! I’m postingFriday’s Challenge abitearlier than normal tonight. The Stamp Simply Crew will be uploading their projects as they get done — some tonight and some tomorrow — so please check the links again later if you’re not seeing the challenge card tonight. Thanks!

Keyword ssnotime67 -There is no time limit. You can play this challenge and upload yourproject at Splitcoastand/or your Blog, anytime at all! You (and that means anyone and everyone, blogger or not!)can play as many times as you like!!! The point is to keep it simple, quick and have fun!!! Please link back here.

In the hopes that some of you may have gotten some new stamping supplies for Christmas, today’s challenge is to make a card using some of your NEW TOYS! If you didn’t get anything new for Christmas, just use the newest thing youhave — whether it be stamps, paper, tools, embellishments — whatever — just use your newest things!!! And be sure to tell us what you got new that you are using!!! No other rules – that’s it!!! Have fun, and keep it simple if you can!!!

Some great samples for the Stamp Simply Challenge today can be seen on these blogs:Julie, Janine, Jennifer, Tammy, Dee, Becky, AJ,and LeAnne.

You can see all Gallery Submissions here.

What wonderful samples!!! Thank you girls!!! Much appreciated!!!

Heres myproject for todays challenge:


The new item I used on this card is this adorable bathtub image, Chill Out, by Annie LaPointe, an MFT stamp, that I got from Stampers Dream (remember, I told you I got quite a few new stamps to share!!!) I just LOVE these adorable bathtub images!!! This is just a quick little card with the image being popped up for effect, and it’s popped up quite a bit with some thicker dimensional products. Not so good for mailing, but I do love the effect. It makes the little image appear more like a piece of art hanging on a wall!!!


Stamps: Chill Out by MFT from Stampers Dream

Paper: PTI White, SU Basic Gray, SU Uptown DP

Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, Copics, White Gelly Roll Pen

Accessories: White Satin Ribbon, Dimensional Products (unknown maker)

I know everyone is busy with family, children and holiday plans, but if you have time to play, we’d LOVE to have you join us and show us some of your NEW TOYS!!!

  1. Beautiful, Sharon! 🙂 I hope you are doing well and that you had a wonderful Christmas! 🙂 Take care! Hugs!

  2. Sharon, this is awesome! I love how clean and crisp your design is, and the colors! (I had loaned ALL my Annie LaPointe stamps to a friend, and got them back recently but with all the Christmas stuff lately I haven’t had time to use them again… this makes me want to go stamp some more before going to bed!)

    Totally adorable Sharon, I love the bathtub, it brings back memories of my gramma’s tub that I bathed in as a little girl. I loved that huge tub with feet . . . .LOL!

  7. Lois (clownmom) says:

    Cute card, Sharon. Isn’t fun to play with new toys the day after Christmas. Makes you feel like you did when you were a kid! Here’s my card, which is actually for three different challenges this morning —

    Here is my card using one of my new House Mouse stamps that my daughter got me for Christmas. Here is my Birthday Wishes:

    Thanks for giving me a challenge to use my new toys!

  13. Bev J. says:

    Hi Sharon, we had a really nice Christmas at my sisters and I am now ready to get back into regular mode.

    My sister got me the classic rectangle Nestabilities and the tan embossing mat for Christmas. I am planning to use them with my Cuttlebug when I find the instructions on how to use them. I looked in your Dry Embossing Archives but didn’t find what I was looking for. Do you know the address for info on using them in other machines besides the Wizard? I didn’t see anything on Spellbinders site unless I overlooked it. I will keep looking as I await your reply. Thanks so much for your help and really enjoy your blog!

  14. Dawn (stampinscotsgirl) says:

    Love the clean crisp lines of this Sharon! Very cute image! Here is my card for today’s challenge. Great challenge for me today to use my new toys, yeah!! I hope you and your family had a wondeful Christmas:)

  15. Deb Saaranen says:

    Yay– I actually got to stamp today! My hubby bought me a bunch of new stamping stuff–yes, I couldn’t believe it!!! My card has new Primas from him; this Sarah Kay image is new, as is the new Martha Stewart Picket Fence border punch.

    Thanks for checking it out!

  16. Carla (cmsuto) says:

    Thanks for the fun challenge, Sharon! Your card is so pretty! My stamping Christmas present hasn’t arrived yet, so I used the newest toy I have, Curved Rectangle Nesties, which finally came in last week! Here is my card:
    Hope you had a wonderful Christmas and have a great weekend!

    Thank you for getting me to use a set that I absolutely adore but have never used to create a card with until today!

  28. Jane says:

    Hi again! I managed to do another challenge where I CASE’d SCS Featured Stamper, Barbara. I used a new stamp set that I have never used before. Thanks again for getting me to use my unused sets!!

  30. SueB says:

    Happy New Year peeps! Here’s a sampling with snowflakes from my new toy, a QuicKutz Silhouette – whoo hoo!

  31. Tamara says:

    My dh bought me a Big Shot for Christmas, but it was delayed in shipping, so I just got it yesterday. I played all day today, and this is the card I came up with no stamping at all, so strange for me.

  32. SueB says:

    Another new toy over the holidays – I just picked up a few of Prima’s Clearly IOD scrapbooking tapes – here’s a card using my fav tape:

    Hope everyone had a t’riffic New Year!

  33. nancy littrell says:

    Whoo Hoo, I received my blog candy Obsession Impression, Charming Gardeners stamp set yesterday. Julie Koerber so generously had this stamp set as part of her blog candy during your 12 day Celebration. The set is the perfect flower set. I can’t wait to create more cards with this set. My 1st creation is Leslie’s Easy gift box and an ATC tag for Cambria, whose birthday is this week. The “pink” box is filled with fudge. We have our demo meeting tomorrow….Cami will love it 🙂 Enjoy, Nancy

    Box and tag:
