52 Christmas Card Challenge – 52CCT24-19 – June 23rd – Technique: Pop-Up

This week’s the 52CCT challenge is to make a Popup card. There are numerous types of popup cards, but I chose to make a box card. I used my Cricut and the basic rounded edge box card by Simply Crafty SVGs. (Note: If you Google box card template there are a number of sites with free downloads and instructions), I started by creating the bo, then I filled it with a Santa, embellishments from my stash, and snowflakes diecuts. The Santa is by Marianne Designs, snowflakes by Penny Black and SSS, Mittens by Memory Box.

This week at 52CCT our challenge is Shabby or Vintage. I tried for a little of both. I used a fabulous stamp by Stampendous called, Snowy Postcard, I paired it with some vintage Christmas paper from my stash and added some embellishments.

52 Christmas Card Challenge – 52CCT22-19 – June 8th – Colour: Grey white pink kraft

I have been having fun using my Cricut Explore Air and some of the fabulous SVG files available. That non-traditional Christmas image is called Christmas Bus Card, by  Jamie and Jann. I used different shapes of grey, pink, white/black, and kraft papers to create my scene.

52 Christmas Card Challenge – 52CCT21-19 – June 1st – Sketch

This week at 52CCT, Design Team member, Fabolia designed the Sketch. I love these challenges because they give you the card design aspect, and I especially love everyone’s interpretation of it. I used a cute stamp from Penny Black, Jolly Christmas Friends. I used Copics to colour my image, a sentiment from MFT, and paper from my stash to layer.

52 Christmas Card Challenge – 52CCT20-19 – May 25th – Technique: Eraser

This week we at 52 CCTC are trying a whole new technique to me. It is called Eraser Technique. For examples of this technique and the instruction check out the Eraser technique (herehere and here). So I started with a blank A2 card and MFT’s Snow Flurry Stencil. I secured the stencil on my craft matt using masking tape. Next, I took a piece of sandpaper and brushed an HB pencil across it making lead dust. I used a clean distress ink sponge tool by Tim Holtz and picked up the dustings and ran the tool across the stencil leaving leaded snowflakes across the card. I stamped Penny Black’s, Snowy on the card. I then erased any snowflakes that showed on the stamped area. The final step was to colour the little snowman with Tombow markers in grey tones. The only colour I used was on his cheeks. The sentiment is from SSS.
