52 Christmas Card Throwdown – Feb 17, 2018 Theme – Polar Bear(s)

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.

CHNC blog button DT

Our Challenge at Crafty Hazelnut’s Christmas Challenge is to make sure you are using some GREEN in your project. I used a fun image from Lili of the Valley Stamp, called James Snow Angel. It is available in both a digital and rubber stamp. I stamped him on Neenah Solar White Cardstock and coloured him with Copic markers. I layered him on various papers from my stash.

This week at Crafty Hazelnut’s Christmas Challenge we are looking for something “CUTE”. The background paper inspired my card. I used an adorable digi image from Hambo Stamps called, “Bailey Christmas.” I coloured my little dog with Copic markers, fussy cut him out, and popped him up on the cardstock using Stampin’ Up Dimensionals. The “For you” sentiment is from Stampin’ Up and “Holiday Wishes” is from Stampin’ Up.

52 Christmas Card Throwdown – February 10, 2018 – Colour Challenge

Hello Everyone. This month I am in charge of selecting all the 52 Christmas Card Throwdown Challenges. Nothing says cold like the blues. I love monochrome cards and challenge you to try to make a card that focuses on using blue tones. Use as many or few as you want. You can use inks, watercolours, markers, pencils, colour stock etc. to show blue. For my card, I used a fun stamp by Whipper Snapper called, “A Polar Bear Party.” I stamped my image then coloured it with various Copic Blue/Blue Green markers. I also added a little Salty Ocean Oxide ink around the outside edge. I backed the image on white cardstock that I blended Salty Ocean, Broken China, and Peacock Feathers. I flicked on some water droplets for that little extra. \finally I backed the card front on blue cardstock. The sentiment is from Sweet n Sassy – A Cardinal’s Christmas.

I have this great Pug stamp from Clearly Besotted called, “BAH HUM-PUG!” I coloured my puppies with Copics, fussy cut them out and arranged on various cardstock from my stash. The sentiment is also from the same stamp set.
