Curtain Call: Christmas Countdown

It's time for a new challenge at Curtain Call.  Could it get any better than a Christmas countdown??

Actually, it could get better.  Our sponsor for this challenge is Sweet Stamp Shop and they are offering a $15 gift certificate to the winner of this challenge!


I got to play along with my Sweet Stamp Shop goodies and used a number of sets.  Here's the card...

SSS Tis the Season

I used a Sizzix embossing folder to get the countdown.  From the Sweet Stamp Shop, I knew that I had to use the reindeer from Speedy Greetings - he is so...hmmm...sweet!!  I used a retired sentiment and, with my apologies, it is gone from the clearance section. The little sparkles are a weakness of mine.  Sweet Stamp Shop's Happy Hour set is really cute and a little quirky, and would be perfect for New Year's or any drinking occasion.  But I got the whole set for the sparkle stamps.  There are a number of sparkles so it was a good purchase...right??!

Be sure to head over to the Curtain Call blog for lots of design team inspiration!  You do not have to use Sweet Stamp Shop's stamps on your card - but you do get a chance to win some.  Create a card based on the inspiration and link up!  I would love to see you play along.
  • Stamps: Sweet Stamp Shop Speedy Greetings, Happy Hour, Holiday Sentiments (retired)
  • Paper: Papertrey Ink Kraft
  • Ink: Memento Black, Copics, Stampin' Up Green Galore, Real Red
