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

52 Christmas Card Throwdown – Challenge 52CCT47-18 – Pick a Previous Challenge from 2017

For the final challenge of 2018, it is a pick a previous challenge from 2017. Just to make things more complicated, I selected the May Theme Challenge 2012 – Nativity. I used the stamp and die set from Stampin Up (retired) called, Night in Bethlehem. I made everything monochromatic using black – grey - silver – white. Because the sentiment is in the inside, I included a photo of it as well.

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.
