Festive Pop-Up Card - September Christmas Challenge Stampathon 2018

I'm backkkkk!!!  Sorry I have been MIA, between my other Stampin' Up! commitments, day job and family I have fell behind in blogging and adding videos to my YouTube channel. You can still catch me live on my facebook group, Ladybug Stampin Spot, every Friday at 7pm central.  Also, on Periscope every Monday for "Make a Card Monday".

This will be a quick post for this months challenge.  Also, to remind you, this is the next to last project for the Christmas Challenge Stampathon 2018.

Here is the breakdown on why we started this challenge....

Do you find yourself scrambling to get your Christmas cards out in December?  Make creative tags for your packages?  Gift and Treat bags? Home Decor?

Well, a group of talented demonstrators and myself have decided to collaborate to help,all of us, not to feel rushed in December.  I have their links below, for you to view their projects as well.

It's called the Christmas Challenge Stampathon 2018!!!  There is even some prizes involved, yay!!!

Everyone is welcome to join in the Challenge, including demonstrators.  You are encouraged to share with your customers.

This is a collaboration between Stampin' Up! Demonstrators in the US, UK and Australia.

The Challenge is set on the 25th of the month on each of the organizers Facebook pages and will then have followup information on their blogs and YouTube channels.

The deadline for submission is 11pm on the 24th of the following month in your respective time zone.

And don't worry if you don't have any Christmas stamp set's yet, you can use just about any stamp set.

Here are my cards from the September challenge, we asked for 4 Pop-Up cards.  And please check out each of our projects as they are each a different take on the word "Pop-Up".
