52 {Christmas} Card Throwdown – Colour Challenge

 CCT - Design For Badge

Foe this Colour Challenge I decided to use my new Sizzix Santa Thinlites Die. I cut the image out three times in white, then added the colours using my Copic Markers. I layered the hat and mustache for dimension. I also used a piece of pre-embossed Reflections card stock for my background, and added a fun Christmas bow.

52 {Christmas} Card Throwdown – Sketch

Sorry I was a little late posting my card. For my card I using two adorable polar bears from MFT - BB Polar Bear Pals. I coloured the bears with Copics, then die cut them out using the matching MFT dies. I used papers from my stash, and the design was based off our current sketch challenge. Please join us!

I love Bugaboo Digital Stamps. One series they had (now retired) were the Tropical Santa series showing Santa relaxing by the pool, suntanning, or in the case of my card surfing. This stamp was called, “TropSantaSurf.” I brightly coloured him with my Copic Markers, I fussy cut him out and set him aside. Next I die cut a Sun from MFT – Sun and Moon, and die cut the water using Marianne’s Designs – Elina’s Whale. I look forward on your take(s) on the challenge,

When I saw our new challenge was rainbow, I immediately thought of the Framed Snowman digi stamp by Dilly Bean Stamps. I tried to make him as colorful as possible even using Copic Makersand a colourful Striped background. The sentiment is from Penny Black – Festive Snippets.

52 {Christmas} Card Throwdown – Sketch

I am sorry I was a little late posted our current challenge. This challenge is based on a Sketch. I used an adorable stamp from Lili of the Valley Stamps called, “Present Trio.” This stamp is really not a Christmas stamp, but I thought I would improvise. I started with colouring the little bears with my Copic markers. Next I fussy cut them out. The sentiment is from a Lawn fawn Christmas based 6 x 6 paper pad. Once I adhered the images and sentiment, I added some die cut snowflakes from Marianne Designs to give the card a more festive feel. The finally touches were adding clear Wink of Stella to the presents, glossy accents to the bears noses, and a few gems.
