Crafty Hazelnut’s Christmas Challenge 415 – Use some gems or pearls

CHNC blog button DT

This week, Craftyhazelnut’s Christmas Challenge is to Add Gems or Pearls. I started by selecting a wonderful little digi by Bugaboo Stamps, called Scene it – Snowmen fun. I coloured the digi using Copic markers. I cut down the image to fit the width of my card and added pearls. The paper to from my stash.

This week the CHNCC Design Team is looking for the addition of a sticker or two. I used two Christmas stickers that were included in a Christmas paper pack from Kaisercraft – the border sticker and the sentiment one. The snowmen are by Mama Elephant. There is a wonderful series of multiple characters. I have a bunch of bunnies and a pack of pooches too! I added a little colour with my Copic markers

For this week’s challenge, the CHNCCC Design Team is looking for a project that you have created the pattern paper. I used a wonderful stamp/die set (retired) from MFT called BB Cool Day. With the set, there are two polar bears, and iceberg, sign, and extras – mittens, cup, heart, snowflake. Using the latter, I randomly stamped them on a blank card front, then coloured them with my Copics. Next, I stamped, coloured, and diecut the bears, ice and sign. I cut a smaller piece of blank neehan solar white cardstock and arranged the bears, sign on the ice. Voila.

Crafty Hazelnut’s Christmas Challenge 412 – Something beginning with the letter H

The Design Team at CHNCCC is looking for something that begins with H. Being from Canada I immediately took of Hookey, then realized that I don’t have any hockey stamps/dies. Next, I thought of HOOK, as in a Christmas ornament hook to hang on the tree, but that is really hard to find. Then Bugaboo stamps came to the rescue! I used this adorable Stocking Santa ornament digi. I used my Derwent Inktense Watercolour pencils to colour him. The sentiment is from MFT.

This week at Craftyhazelnut’s Christmas Challenges we are looking for the added feature of buttons. I used a darling Fergus – Polar Bear Stamp from Hobby Art Ltd. I coloured him with Copics, fussy cut him out, added him the paper from my stash, and embellished the card using 3 white snowflake buttons. The sentiment is a paper sticker from Kaisercraft.
