For this week’s Craftyhazelnut’s Christmas Challenge, we are asking you to design a Christmas for a child. Every kid loves animals and I thought the fun stamp designed by Kristina Werner from SSS called FURRY CHRISTMAS Friends Pets sss101204. I coloured it with Copics, added a little Stickles and glued it on Christmas cardstock from my stash.

52 Christmas Card Throwdown – Stash Challenge – April 28, 2018 – Knitting or Sewing

For this week’s card with 52 Christmas Card Challenge, I used a stamp called Winter Bears Foam Mounted Rubber stamp set designed by Sharon Bennett for Hobby Art Stamps. I coloured these adorable furry friends with Copic Markers. I used a “knitted” sweater patterned card stock, hand drew stitch lines around my two images, with a bear sporting a colourful knitted sweater.

This week at CRAFT, we challenge you to make a project using a charm. For my card, I used a sweet digi image called,”Spring Ladybug” by StarStampz. I coloured her using my Copic markers, cut the image out with a circle die from MFT, added a hello sentiment die cut from SSS, and finished it off adding two wooden ladybug charms from my stash.

This week at Crazy Hazelnut’s Christmas Challenge the theme is “Add a House or Two”. I decided to use an older Hero Arts stamp called Snowing Village CG396. Using my Misti, I stamped the images several times to ensure I got a black sky. I coloured the houses using Copic markers and added some ice stickles. I mounted the images on two different papers from my stash. The sentiment is from SSS.

52 Christmas Card Throwdown – Theme Challenge – April 21, 2018 – White Christmas

This week the 52CCT Design Team is challenging you to make a white on white Christmas card. I used two dies sets to create my round card. I started with cutting two circles, and the beautiful snowflake circular die cut using Snowflake Circle by Spirit of Christmas Precious Marieke. To add the bird I using the dies only from Hero Arts – Die and Clear Acrylic Stamp Set – Dimensional Bird. To attach the circles to form the card, I scored the inside (back) circle about 1/2 inch down and used Be Creative tape to glue the two together.
