Simply Create Too – Challenge 143 – Make a Shaker Card

Simple Create Too

This month at Simply Create Too, we are looking for a shaker card. I started with Lili of the Valley’s, James – Snow Angel by Lily of the Valley. I coloured him with Copics, added a stamped sentiment from Lawn Fawn, used a stitched die set from MFT,  and paper/sequins from my stash.

C.R.A.F.T. Challenge 485 – 4th of October – Sketch

This week at C.R.A.F.T. we are having a Sketch Challenge. For this challenge, I am using an adorable digi from Bugaboo Stamps called Snow Friends Window. I coloured the image using Derwent Inkintense watercolour pencils. Using cardstock from my stash I assembled the card to resemble the sketch.

CHNC blog button DT

This week at Craftyhazelnut’s Christmas challenge we are looking for something that begins with S. I immediately thought of Santa, or snow/snowflake, but then I went with Snowman. I used a fabulous snowman stamp from MFT. I coloured him with Copic markers. I added him to some snowflake patterned paper and added the Let it snow diecut. I edged the right side of the card with the same silver foil paper as the diecut.

C.R.A.F.T. Challenge 484 – 27th of September – Autumn/Weather

Click here to go to challenge blog

Gosh, summer is over and now we are into my favourite season of all – Fall. The Design team at C.R.A.F.T. is looking for an Autumn or Weather card. I used a fabulous stamp from Eureka Stamps called Halloween Border. What says fall more than orange pumpkins! I love the glossy finish left for using my Minc machine, so I printed the image using my laser printer/Minc, coloured the image with my Copic markers, and added it to some Halloween paper from my stash.

52 Christmas Card Throwdown – Challenge 52CCT33-18 Colouring

DT Badge

This week at 52CCT, the Design Team is looking at the way you colour your cards. I love using Copic Markers. It is amazing some of the things you can do with these markers. I am by no means an expert. For inspiration of what you can do with Copic markers, I would strongly advise you to check out Sandy Allnock. This lady can Rock Copic Markers!

For my card, I used an adorable Bird Brain digi stamp by From the Heart Stamps (unfortunately this company is closed). I coloured it with Copics and die cut it was a circle die by MFT.  I folded a piece of blue cardstock 10″ x 5″ and cut the same size circle so I ended up with a card with a circle in the centre. Next, I glued the image into the inside of the card. For the final touch, I added a die cut from Find It Trading – Precious Marieke Die – Spirit of Christmas Snowflake Circle.
