This week the C.R.A.F.T. Design Team is looking for a project that focuses on Outdoors Play. I selected an adorable digital stamp called, “Captain Owen” by Paper Nest Dolls. I made two versions of this stamp. I started by printing the image in two different sizes and coloured Owen with my Copic Markers. To embellish the card I used various papers, wooden pieces, die cuts from my stash.

52 Christmas Card Throwdown – Stash Challenge – Lace

DT Badge

This week at 52 Christmas Card Throwdown, our challenge is to use lace on our Christmas Card. Well, I have been hearing a lot about these new “Bow” cards and decided to check them out. Wow! they are simply gorgeous. Just Google bow cards for YouTube videos and numerous beautiful examples. I purchased the template from *. I also received written permission from Sandra to make and display my card on the 52CCT website. She sent me the bow card template as a PDF file that allows you to use scissors and a SVG file that you can use the various cutting machines. I used my Cricut. *Please note: there are numerous fabulous projects available to purchase at Sandra’s Scrap Shop. I used various Christmas papers, lace, gems, snowflake buttons from my stash to create my Christmas bow card. I used a heavy cardstock to make the actual card attached to the back of the bow, but I think I will also attach a small loop so the person receiving the card can also hang it as a decoration. I hope you like my first attempt. I will be making more!

For our weekly challenge at CHNCCC we are looking for silver. I purchased this little reindeer die by Tonic Studios called, Baby Rudolph. I cut him out twice, once with a shiny silver cardstock, then again with a matt silver. I ended up with two paper pieced deer cards. The paper and stickers are from my stash. I have included a close up of both versions of my reindeer.

Our challenge at 52CCT is to add a star(s). I used a fabulous polar bear stamp called, Peter the Polar Bear, by Hobby Art. I coloured him with Copic markers, added a punched gold star, and a sentiment made up from one of my Christmas paper sets from Kaiser crafts.
