C.R.A.F.T. Challenge 485 – 4th of October – Sketch

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.

Crafty Hazelnut’s Christmas Challenge 405 – Something beginning with the letter S

CHNC blog button DT

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.

52 Christmas Card Throwdown – Challenge 52CCT33-18 Colouring

DT Badge

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.

C.R.A.F.T. Challenge 483 – 20th of September – Sports

Click here to go to challenge blog

The C.R.A.F.T. Design Team says, “Let’s get active and involve Sports this week’s Card!” After making a Christmas card for our last challenge, I was still in the winter mood. I used Dr. Digi’s, Simple Snowman. I printed him out using my laser printer, then put him through my Minc machine using the shiny black foil. I filled him in with a bit of Copic Colouring then layered him on a die cut scenic background using Stampin Ups Christmas dies. The sentiments and snowballs are from Lawn Fawn. My sports are Sleigh riding and a snowball fight. Note: This cute little digi is available in B&W or Coloured.
