Hello Everyone, Myrna here! As a member of the Design Team for 52 CCT Challenge, we all get to select a month of Challenges. For our Theme Challenge, I selected Polar Bear(s). I love all kinds of bears from Teddy Bears to Polar Bears, thus my choice for this month’s theme. For my card I used dies. The bear die is from Marianne Design Cutting Dies & Clear Stamp – Eline’s Polar Bear COL1370. I created the card using various cardstock colours, stamp from Mama Elephant, and Stickles.
I look forward to seeing your Bear(s)
Hello Everyone. For the month of February, I am in charge of the challenges for the52 Christmas Card Throwdown. The sketch above is just a guideline, but you are welcome to modify it to suit your card design. While the sketch shows a design for an A2 card in landscape format, you can make your card any size or shape. In my example, I used a square vs an oval, snowflakes vs stars, and patterned papers vs solid papers.
For the main image, I used a digital stamp by Delicious Doodles called, A Robin’s Christmas. I coloured it with Copic markers. I used 3 snowflakes dies from Tim Holtz’s Snowflake Thinlites. The sentiment is from Sweet n Sassy, Cardinal Christmas. The cardstock and gems are from my stash.
Hope you will join us.
For our final 52 Christmas Card Throwdown Challenge for January, we challenge you to use paper piecing on your card. For my card, I die cut my background using My Favorite Things - Die-namics Quilt Square Cover-Up. I cut it out multiple times then paper pieced it together using different colours and patterns.Next, I stamped two of the adorable Yetis from MFT - BB Beast Friends. I coloured them with Momento markers and blended the colours using my waterbrush. The sentiment is from the same stamp set.
Please join us!
Andreja came up with a wonderful theme for this week’s 52CCT challenge! I really had to put on my thinking cap, As I do not have any Christmas fairy stamps, I made due with my Lawn Fawn – Fairy Friends Stamp. I started with stamp the Christmas Tree from the On the Town Clear Stamp set. I stamped the fairies separately, coloured them with Copic Markers and die cut them out with the matching dies. Next, I added gems to the tree, placed the fairies, then added gems to their hands to make it appear they decorated the tree, The background coloured were created with the new Oxide Distress Inks.
