JB38: happy hybrid holidays!

this week at ♥JINGLE BELLES♥ we are very excited to be trying something BRAND NEW (to us!) we're delving into the world of digital/hybrid for this prompt and inviting you to make a holiday card that utilizes at least one digital stamp or element. luckily, we have a very lovely and very generous sponsor... robyn's fetish digital stamps and more!

not only did those wonderful ladies give stef and i some very tasty digi-stuffs to use; they also sent along their very talented and incredibly friendly DT coordinator, susan paulson, to guest design with us; as well as sponsoring a rather awesome prize for one lucky cardmaker who links up with us this week; AND we are especially excited that they have provided a *FREE* image for ANY belle who'd like to use it!

yep... it's a JINGLE BELL!!! :) check out today's official post at for complete details on all of the above!

and now here's my card, i'm pretty pleased with it, actually:

(digital stamps: christmas twee and christmas presents by robyn's fetish digital stamps and more; patterned paper: ki memories, girls' paperie, prima, bo bunny, dcwv, love elsie, anna griffin, mme, basic grey; gems: recollections; inks: colorbox; adhesives: xyron, 3m foam tape, tombow monorunner; other: full sheet clear labels from staples, sewing machine)

you can see that i've done some old school paper piecing. what may be less obvious is the fact that again i've printed multiple copies of my two digi-stamps onto clear inkjet labels; in that way i can use up all my TINY scraps of patterned paper that wouldn't fit through my printer. also, i can print once and then go sit in the living room to make my card. because YEAH... sometimes my "process" is that scientific! :)

i hope you'll hop over to jingle belles and see the gorgeous cards made by miss stephanie and miss susan using images from robyn's fetish and that you'll be inspired to make a hybrid card of your very own this week for a shot at the FABULOUS prize! ♥


  1. When you said Hybrid Holiday I thought maybe it was something like Hanukstermas or Eastanzaa or Diwalikah. I think those would be ace holidays to celebrate although perhaps a bit tricksy to card for.

  2. wow! so LOVELY! LOVE the different papers you've chosen! perfect!

  3. Such a SWEET little scene you've created!

  4. Super adorable…I like the tree and the presents and the tree baubles :)

  5. Paper pieced goodness. I'm really feeling this challenge. I have been neglecting my digi stuff and we both know I have a butt ton of it!! This is amazing. I want this card!! :)

  6. I really love how you've used different papers on the tree. It's really cool!

  7. I love your colorful, detailed Christmas card. The recipient will be so thrilled to receive this.

  8. Love this card more each time I see it ... such a magical combination of papers.

  9. Ok, I love the colors on your tree. I love the red baubles. I adore the presents. Just the shape of those digis rock my world.
