52 Christmas Card Throwdown – 52CCT7-19 – Theme – Winter Trees

Allison from the 52CCC Design Team has chosen Winter Trees as the Theme Challenge this month. I used a new stamp from Penny Black called, Snowy Village 40-558. I started by stamping the image using MFT Black ink. Next, I coloured the building with Copic markers. Using blue toned Oxide Distress Inks I sponged the background. For the finishing touch, I flicked water droplets over the image to produce the oxide effect.

52 Christmas Card Throwdown – 52CCT6-19 – Colours – Green and Silver

This week’s challenge at 52CCC is a Colour Challenge. We are looking for a card with Green and Silver. Crafting friends of mine have started their own Canadian Crafting Company. Currently, their own uniquely designed dies are limited editions and are sold to friends and family only. I purchased a number of their dies and they are all fabulous. This one is simply called Celtic Christmas Tree. Note: The die is a wonderful large die fitting perfect on my A2 card.

52 Christmas Card Throwdown – CCT5-19 – Sketch

This week, Allison from our Design Team, drew up this Sketch, as the inspiration for your card. It is a very simple design that you can make anywhere from CAS to Complex. I opted for the CAS. I have a number of images that I have stamped and coloured with Copics while watching TV, so I grabbed a line of snowmen, and a line of fancy dotted cardstock and created my card. The sentiment is from MFT and the digi stamp is called, 3 snowmen blocks by Silly Dilly Beans Stamps (retired).

52 Christmas Card Throwdown – CCT4-19 – Technique – Heat Embossing

This week’s challenge at 52 Christmas Card Challenge is to make a card using heat embossing. I selected two stamps by Hero Arts. I started with white embossing the trees in white Hero Arts Embossing powder. Next using various blue shades of Oxide Ink, I sponged the Neenah Solar cardstock background in various tones. I cleaned the ink off the embossed image with a baby wipe. I added the sentiment in Versafine Black and finished the project by layered the image on white and blue cardstock. I decided to flick water into the card for the effect.

52 Christmas Card Throwdown – CCT3-19

 

Our theme this week is Silent Night. I have a wonderful paper with the music of Silent Night but in my messy craft room I was not successful in finding it…insert sad face! So I made do with what I could find. I used an older Hero Arts stamp called Snowing Village CG396. Using my Misti, I stamped the images several times to ensure I got a black sky. I coloured the houses using Copic markers and added glitter mist to the full card front. The sentiment is recycled from a Christmas card.
