Some of the products I used include: Tim Holtz Sizzix Tattered Pinecone Dies, Tim Holtz Sizzix Die Mini Snowflake Rosettes, Tim Holtz Santa Sketch Christmas Stamp u2-1279, Rock Candy glaze, distress inks, Christmas tags, and more.

Crafty Hazelnut’s Christmas Challenge – 17 March 2018 – No patterned paper

CHNC blog button DT

Crafty Hazelnut’s Christmas Design Team’s challenge this week is to make a card using no patterned paper. I decided to create my own background door by using various rectangle cuts of card stock. Once the door was finished, I added a Christmas Wreath die by Tim Holtz and a brad for the doorknob. I even created a tag on the wreath using the vintage Santa stamp on Shrinky Dinky plastic. The inside of my card reads, “Merry Christmas from Our Home to Yours.”

C.R.A.F.T. Challenge 459 – 15th of March – Animals

The CRAFT Challenge this week is Animals. I used a “Must Have” stamp by DRS called, “Stained Glass.” DSR Designs actually make a number of variations of these stamps and that allow you to make a stained glass effect using them in combination with your other stamps. For more information, please check out their website and this fabulous tutorial. Also, you can run a search for DRS on my site to see other cards I have made.

For this card, I simply used the stained glass stamp to create a fun background for my deer die cuts. I coloured the background with Copic markers and added the deer, trees, frame, snowflakes, and sentiment.
