Every year, Christmas in July gets a little more popular, and we're always so excited to see everyone joining in and getting a jump on their holiday cards. Here are just a few "Blingy" masterpieces which especially caught our eye:
And now let's see who will be receiving that fun little Bling-centric prize pack? The Random Number Generator has chosen...
which means that
is our lucky winner!
Congratulations, Karen, please email Lauren at llaurenb @ hotmail.com
and we'll get that right out to you!
Many thanks to the ladies of the Double Trouble Challenge, we enjoyed teaming up for this fun Christmas in July event; remember they post a brand new challenge on the first and third Monday of every month and there's a special challenge any time a fifth Monday rolls around (...so there might just be one in August...). A special shout out to everyone who played along this time, we loved seeing every single card. We'll be back at midnight with a brand new prompt, and we don't think anyone could possibly feel blue about that... :)

Yes, that's right, we're still "Blinging on the Holidays" for our special crafty crossover challenge with the lovely ladies on the Double Trouble Challenge Blog. Which means you can make ONE (new, blingy, holiday) CARD and link it up at both sites... with a chance of a fun little prize at each!
Scroll down to our original "Bling on the Holidays" post to link up your card for a chance to win our wonderful blingy prize package AND don't forget to also link up at the Double Trouble Challenge Blog.

This fortnight we Jingle Belles are happy to be partnering with the lovely ladies of the Double Trouble Challenge for exponentially more fun AND a chance at some cool prizes! First, we should mention that our part of this event is called, "Bling On the Holidays" and we'd like to see your brand new holiday cards that include jewels, gems, pearls, sequins, glitter or pretty much anything sparkly!
For the Double Trouble Challenge, it's "Christmas in July", and basically any holiday card will qualify; so if you make a card to link up with us here at Jingle Belles, we hope you'll also link it with them to be included in their drawing! Then be sure to check back every fortnight or so, because they have a new challenge every other week and it's a great way to find some new challenges and loads of inspiration!
If you're new to us here at Jingle Belles, welcome! We make holiday cards from January through November, and we reveal a brand new prompt every other Friday, with a reminder post in between. We're mostly a "just for fun" challenge blog, but we do include a little prize on special occasions, which this definitely is, so we hope you'll scroll down for that.
But first... here's how we were inspired to use Bling on our cards:
Now here's a little prize pack we'll award to one randomly selected holiday cardmaker who links up with us this fortnight; featuring super-cute Pebbles clear stamps, sparkly chipboard snowflakes, colorful stickers and sequins, and of course some BLING!
Link your Bling-centric creations right here by 6pm (Eastern) on Wednesday, July27th. Then be sure to head over to Double Trouble too!

There were plenty of cool ideas for adding stars and/or stripes to our holiday cards and we loved seeing ALL of them. Here are three that especially caught our eye:

We're still celebrating Stars OR Stripes at Jingle Belles, or if you're really into it, you can make a holiday card that has BOTH! Scroll down to the original post to link your cards.
Meanwhile, here's what we made this week (both of us using stars AND stripes):

Since this week in the USA is Independence Day, we're asking you to incorporate either stars or stripes into your card design. You needn't use red, white or blue; just stars or stripes (or both if you're feeling up to an extra challenge!) in any medium you choose.
Here's what we created this week:
Link your starry and/or stripey masterpieces right here by 6pm (Eastern) on Wednesday, July 13th. Keyword for galleries and Flickr is JB-22-14.
