We Need a Little Holiday/Christmas...NOW!!!

Ok it's hardly the weather to be thinking of that Jolly Fat Man in the RED suit...BUT, it's just too darn HOT outside and all of us at S2G thought ALL OF YOU could use a little something to "COOL" yourselves off...So without further ado let's introduce the S2G Holiday Stamps!

Please join us over the next 3 weeks as our Twisted Thursdays will be all about the Holidays. Each Design Team member is about to get ALL RED, GREEN and JOLLY with all of you! The Design Team will take you on a week by week tour thru the S2G Holiday/Christmas line and share lots and lots of creative projects with you!

Are you ready for the first week of the Holidays/Christmas in July??? Grab your hat and mittens and lets take a stroll in the winter wonderland of Twisted Thursday #1 for Holiday/Christmas in July! As with each Twisted Thursday, we'll give you an incredible sketch along with an added Twist but this time we ask you to think Holiday/Christmas and use a Holiday/Christmas style stamp. No need to worry if you don't have a S2G one, you can still play along and we encourage you to. Read on to see how you can WIN some fun stuff from S2g!Starting July 2nd you can go HERE and download DIGI stamps and papers for your very own Twisted Thursday project! So are your ready to think snow, think jolly and think red/green??!!

Ok, here's the sketch for this week along with the TWIST. The TWIST is to add distressing to your card.

Here's mine as a little inspiration to get you going! I used the S2G stamp called "Not a Creature was Stirring Cat" (SG H9) and some new digi paper from S2G. I distressed the edges of my green layer, the white edges and the red back piece. I love using my distressor! I cut out the star and that cute little can placed them on pop dots to give my card some dimension. I love glitter and sparkle and you can't have the holidays without a little of that so I added some rhinestone stars to add some sparkle and shine! Hope you like it!

Wanna know how to WIN some stuff??? Oh Yeah SANTA BABY...Post your piece to Mr Linky HERE and leave a little holiday love on the S2G Challenge blog. Sounds pretty simply, huh??!!! Ok need some more inspiration....Check out these ladies with Holiday Attitudes...

Great Great job on this one, love the green background that you colored and those 3 little ribbons. I originally had set out to do the same thing but isn't it funny how sometimes the project has a mind of it's own?

This is so colorful and perfect. It made me look at that image twice. What color marker did you use for the cat? It looks good on him.

Appearing now! said...
