52 Christmas Card Throwdown – Challenge 52CCT47-18 – Pick a Previous Challenge from 2017

For the final challenge of 2018, it is a pick a previous challenge from 2017. Just to make things more complicated, I selected the May Theme Challenge 2012 – Nativity. I used the stamp and die set from Stampin Up (retired) called, Night in Bethlehem. I made everything monochromatic using black – grey - silver – white. Because the sentiment is in the inside, I included a photo of it as well.

52 Christmas Card Throwdown – Challenge 52CCT46-18 – Stash – Ribbon & Glitter

DT Badge

For our 52CCT Challenge, the design team is looking for a little glitz and glamour, so our Stash Challenge we want to see Ribbon and Glitter! I started with this adorable snowman from MFT (retired) Pure Innocence Happy Heart Snowman. I stamped and coloured him with Copics. Next, I put a small amount of white glue on my craft mat, added a drop of water, then using a small paint brush, brushed glue over the snowman. Before it dried, I dumped Ranger diamond dust glitter on it, lightly tapped the back and voila! The extra glitter which was on a dry sheet of paper was poured back into the bottle. I punched a large round hole into a wood textured paper, mounted the snowman behind the opening, add ribbon and assembled it on a blank A2 card.

52 Christmas Card Throwdown – Challenge 52CCT45-18 – Theme – Snowglobes

DT Badge

The 52CCT Theme Challenge is to make a card using a snowglobe. I created my snowglobe by die-cutting a snowglobe frame using Creative Expressions Craft Dies by Sue Wilson – Festive Collection – Snow Globe. Next, I printed a digi stamp by Heart Snowman by Dilly Beans Stamps. I coloured him with Copics, then using the same die, cut the image out to fit the centre of the globe. I die cut the bottom of the snowglobe and manually cut out the lacey band and glued it in light pearl silver onto the shiny silver base. I also diecut a circle of vellum to add over the snowman image to make it look like a snowglobe.

I coloured the gnomes in pinks, backed it in blues, add blue snowflakes, and pretty pastel ornament paper from Kaisercraft.

November Sketch Challenge

This week at 52CCC, we are looking for a Christmas based on the sketch above. For the large circle, I used a wonderful stamp by Hobby Art Stamps – Just a Bear. The sentiment tag and star are from my stash. I used a little Copic colour on the bear, fussy cut him out and assembled him on the card. This was a quick to make card taking less than 10 minutes.
