Crafty Hazelnut’s Christmas Challenge 443 – use some washi tape

CHNC blog button DT

For this week’s Crafty Hazelnut’s Christmas Challenge we are looking for a project using washi tape. I looked at the card I made for last week’s challenge (see below) and thought, why not make the tree using washi tape, so that is exactly what I did.  I used a fabulous SVG file called, Blue Christmas (I swapped out washi tape for the tree) by A Little Scrap of Heaven. I also changed the card setup,

52 Christmas Card Challenge – 52CCT24-19 – June 23rd – Technique: Pop-Up

This week’s the 52CCT challenge is to make a Popup card. There are numerous types of popup cards, but I chose to make a box card. I used my Cricut and the basic rounded edge box card by Simply Crafty SVGs. (Note: If you Google box card template there are a number of sites with free downloads and instructions), I started by creating the bo, then I filled it with a Santa, embellishments from my stash, and snowflakes diecuts. The Santa is by Marianne Designs, snowflakes by Penny Black and SSS, Mittens by Memory Box.

Crafty Hazelnut’s Christmas Challenge 442 – non-traditional Christmas

CHNC blog button DT

Normally when you think of Christmas colours, you automatically think red and green, gold and silver.  I have made some pretty wild Christmas cards but today I was thinking soft pink. I used a fabulous SVG file called, Blue Christmas (I swapped out pink paper for blue) by A Little Scrap of Heaven. I add some detail to the snow, I embossed the snow banks and snowman with a snowflake embossing folder from my collection.

This week at 52CCT our challenge is Shabby or Vintage. I tried for a little of both. I used a fabulous stamp by Stampendous called, Snowy Postcard, I paired it with some vintage Christmas paper from my stash and added some embellishments.

52 Christmas Card Challenge – 52CCT22-19 – June 8th – Colour: Grey white pink kraft

I have been having fun using my Cricut Explore Air and some of the fabulous SVG files available. That non-traditional Christmas image is called Christmas Bus Card, by  Jamie and Jann. I used different shapes of grey, pink, white/black, and kraft papers to create my scene.
