Crafty Hazelnut’s Christmas Challenge 472 – Feature a Creature (any animal)

Please join my Facebook page

This week’s challenge at Crafty Hazelnut’s Christmas Challenge 472 – Feature a Creature (any animal). I decided to use a new die set called, “ALL INSIDE BY JULIE EBERSOLE, ESSENTIALS BY ELLEN Hudson DESIGNER DIES”. I used papers from my stash, die the little bear, added a die-cut sentiment from, “Sue Wilson for Creative Expressions Craft Dies” and layered it on my card front.

Crafty Hazelnut’s Christmas Challenge 471-Upcycle or Use Something Old

Please join my Facebook page

The first challenge of 2020 for Crafty Hazelnut’s Christmas Challenge is to make a card using something old or upcycling. I decided to recycle a card. I started first by stamping and colouring a digital image. I used a stamp from A Day for Daisies – A Sign I Give. I coloured the image with Copic markers, fussy cut him out and layered him on the card. I also added a real ribbon stripe to the left of the image.

Crafty Hazelnut’s Christmas Challenge 470 – any Christmas or New Year card

A new challenge every Saturday

For the final challenge of 2019, the Design Team at Crafty Hazelnut’s Christmas Challenge is looking for a Christmas card (the start of your 2020 stash) or a Happy New Year Card. I have been hoarding this stamp and the metal pins from Darcie’s, called POP FIZZ. I stamped the wine glasses in Versamark ink, then painted them using the pins as the colour schedule with my Derwent Inktense Watercolour pencils. I added the pins and some glitter dots of gold stickles.

Crafty Hazelnut’s Christmas Challenge 469 – use the word Christmas

Please join my Facebook page

This week at Crafty Hazelnut’s Christmas Challenge, we are looking for the word Christmas on your project. The little bear is from a local stamp maker called Frog’s Whiskers Ink. The stamp is called Scottish Teddy. I coloured him like a polar bear from that more “Christmasy” feel. I coloured him with Copic markers. The sentiment is a sticker from Kaisercraft.


I looked forward to seeing everyone’s Christmas cards.
