taking stock...

*CARDSTOCK* that is! and we cannot help but be awed and amazed by how creative our fellow JINGLE BELLES can be when limited in their supplies. "no designer paper? no problem!" seemed to be the response from one & all; and what a gorgeous crop of cards we saw this week! here are a few that interpreted jess' cardstock christmas prompt in especially clever ways:

jess says, "I love that Kirsty added so much texture and interest with layering cardstock punches. I also adore that Kirsty’s card has some untraditional colors but is still very festive!"

jess says,
"A card without patterned paper lends itself to the CAS style and Jennifer captures that perfectly here. I love that her sentiment is simple and fun which goes so perfectly with her card!"

jess says,
"I always admire individuals who can make fabulous creations with stamps. Kathe does an amazing job with this beautiful stamped scene. The thing that really got me about this card was the tiny touch of the blue bird which just makes the whole thing that much more beautiful and intriguing. !"

speaking of jessica moyer, who came up with this excellent and challenging idea that sparked us all to think in excellent new ways, we'd like to take this opportunity once again to thank her for being our lovely guest star this week! we hope you've bookmarked out her very cool, very inspiring blog, Basic Jess, and that you'll continue to visit her DT gigs, Just Imagine/Kreaxions and Die Cuttin' Divas, where even more brilliant ideas can be found!

so now you'll be wanting to know who's going to get the rub-on's miss jess has generously offered to bestow, right? let's consult to find out who the lucky cardmaker was this week... and the prize goes toooooooo... number 24:
