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.

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.

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.
Please join every week!
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.

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.
