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.

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 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.

Sorry I was a little late posting my card. For my card I using two adorable polar bears from MFT - BB Polar Bear Pals. I coloured the bears with Copics, then die cut them out using the matching MFT dies. I used papers from my stash, and the design was based off our current sketch challenge. Please join us!

For this month’s card, I have revealed exactly what Santa does while on his Vay-Kay! I love this series of Tropical Santa’s that Bugaboo Stamps Created. This one is called TropSantaSuntan. They have 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. Next I die cut a sun using the Sun and Moon Die-namics from MFT. The waves were created with a die from Marianne’s Designs called, “Eline’s Whale.” The final step was to assemble my card and stamp a sentiment from Penny Black’s Festive Snippets.
