DT Badge

This week at 52CCTC, our Design Team is asking you to create a Christmas Card using only Black, White and one other colour. I chose Red. Penny Black’s – Snowy is my favourite Christmas Stamp. Last year they came out with the matching die with 2 snowflakes. I added colour to the stamped image with Copic markers and cardstock from my stash.

52 Christmas Card Throwdown – Challenge 52CCT34-18 – Sketch

DT Badge

This week’s challenge at 52CCT is to design a card based on a sketch designed by Lucinda. I was not sure what I was going to do until I looked at all the tickers I still had on my desk from last week’s Stash Challenge. To make my card, I simply used paper and stickers from my stash. I turned the sketch on its side and created my card -Eazy Peazy!

52 Christmas Card Throwdown – July 28th, 2018 – Stash – Sticker(s)

This is my final week of picking the 52CCT Challenges. I am asking you to “shop your stash” and use some Christmas stickers in your card making. I always buy lots of stickers at the end of each season. These were purchased at Dollar Tree. My stamp to called Snow Family and it is by Penny Black Stamps. I coloured the family with Copic Markers, added the snowflake and sentiment stickers from my stash, and made my card from grey cardstock.

52 Christmas Card Throwdown – July 21st, 2018 – Theme – Non Traditional Christmas Card

I am in charge of picking the challenges for July for the 52CCT Design team. When I thought of this challenge, I was thinking of ways to stretch my stamps and dies by using non-Christmas dies to make a Christmas card. For my first card, I used papers, stamps and dies from Photo Play designed specifically for Canada Day to make a Christmas card.

This month I am in charge of selecting all the challenges. For the colour challenge, I have chosen Black and either Gold or Silver! I made a simple card using die-cuts and dry embossing. I started with die-cutting out the Christmas tree. This die is by Creative Expressions Festive Collection – Christmas Tree Greetings Die Set by Sue Wilson CED3017. I cut it out from gold foil paper. Next, I die cut an oval from the leftover foiled paper and put that through my Big Shot using a Tim Holtz Snowflake texture fade embossing folder. Using the same embossing folder, I debossed the front of my card. The final set was to glue everything together.
