This challenge will last for the whole month of October 2017 – anything goes as long as it’s Christmas – it doesn’t have to be a card, you can link any project as long as it’s Christmas!

Once again this year, all of these monthly challenges are being generously sponsored by Bugaboo Stamps - a winner will be randomly chosen using random.

Bugaboo Stamps are proud to sponsor this challenge – they are offering 4 digital stamps to the randomly selected winner.

I started by stamping the little girl by MFT, called, “Doodle Garden, You’re the Coolest.” I stamped then coloured her with Copic. Next I cut her out and rounded the corners. The final step was to assemble my card and stamp a sentiment from Penny Black’s Festive Snippets, and add some snowflake sequins and pom poms from my stash.

52 {Christmas} Card Throwdown – Theme Challenge

 CCT - Design For Badge

When I saw the Theme of this challenge, I thought of the skating bear from MFT – Polar Bear Pals. The stamps also show the joys of ice fishing and playing outdoors.

One Stamp-Eighteen Cards – Featuring BB Polar Bear Pals by MFT

I was asked to create 18 Personal Christmas Cards that depicted “Canada”. I immediately thought of Polar Bears, and My Favorite Things –  BB Polar Bear Pals stamps and dies were Perfect! Well you know me, I can’t create the same card twice (well I can, but this is way more fun) so I created 18 different cards using the same stamp set. Here is the results!

When creating the cards, I used Copics, Derwent Inktense Pencils, Distress Inks to colour. I also used various dies, stamps, and punches from Memory Box, MFT Dienamics, Stampin’ Up, Spellbinders, Lawn Fawn dies, SSS, and Penny Black. Plus: papers, card stock, gems, sequins, stickers, ribbon and twine for my stash. If you have specific questions about the products I used feel free to contact me.

For this month’s card, I selected another Tropical Santa called “Surfing Santa. Unfortunately Bugaboo has since retired the series, and that is why you need to keep checking their website. As new stamps are created, they retire the old ones-heavy sigh.

I started by colouring him bright, festive colours with my Copics. Once done, I fussy cut him out and set him aside. The stamped sentiment is from Paper Smooches. I layered him on Rainbow paper for added colour.

52 {Christmas} Card Throwdown – Colour Challenge

 CCT - Design For Badge

Foe this Colour Challenge I decided to use my new Sizzix Santa Thinlites Die. I cut the image out three times in white, then added the colours using my Copic Markers. I layered the hat and mustache for dimension. I also used a piece of pre-embossed Reflections card stock for my background, and added a fun Christmas bow.

I love MFT whole Pure Innocent’s stamp and die lineup. I have over 30 of  their stamps. This stamp is called, “Snow Day.” I coloured her with Copic markers, cut her out, then rounded the corners with my We R Memory Keepers Corner Chomper. I die cut several snowflakes using Tim Holtz’s, “Paper Snowflakes, Minis.” The sentiment stamp/die is from Papertry Ink.

Fun with Snow
