52 {Christmas} Card Throwdown – Stash Challenge

CCT - Design For Badge

For our current challenge we ask you to design a card using wood or canvas in your card. For my card I used a wooden snowflake that I purchased at Michael’s. I also used a wood patterned card stock as the card background. The bear is from MFT – BB Polar Pals, coloured with Copics. The sentiment die cut is by SSS.

52 {Christmas} Card Throwdown – Theme Challenge

When I saw the Theme of this challenge, I thought of the skating bear from MFT – Polar Bear Pals. The stamps also show the joys of ice fishing and playing outdoors.

One Stamp-Eighteen Cards – Featuring BB Polar Bear Pals by MFT

I was asked to create 18 Personal Christmas Cards that depicted “Canada”. I immediately thought of Polar Bears, and My Favorite Things –  BB Polar Bear Pals stamps and dies were Perfect! Well you know me, I can’t create the same card twice (well I can, but this is way more fun) so I created 18 different cards using the same stamp set. Here is the results!

When creating the cards, I used Copics, Derwent Inktense Pencils, Distress Inks to colour. I also used various dies, stamps, and punches from Memory Box, MFT Dienamics, Stampin’ Up, Spellbinders, Lawn Fawn dies, SSS, and Penny Black. Plus: papers, card stock, gems, sequins, stickers, ribbon and twine for my stash. If you have specific questions about the products I used feel free to contact me.

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.

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,
