For my Christmas card this week I used an adorable digi stamp by Little Miss Muffet - Bunny with Stocking. I coloured him with Copics markers and decorated the card with fun stickers I purchased last year at the Dollar Tree.

C.R.A.F.T. – Challenge 474 – 28th of June – Thank You!

This week the CRAFT Design Team challenges you to make a Thank You card. I used a simple technique of die layering. First I found a beautiful background paper then I created the word “Thank” using my large die letters. I taped them together with masking tape, positioned them on my paper and die cut them out. I moved the letters and set them aside. Next, I glued the background paper and the middle of the letter A onto the card backing. I cut out a second set of letters from black foam. I removed the letters and glue them in place on the card. Finally, I glued the die letters I had from the paper on top of the foam. This gives you a dimensional look. I added another die cut You and a purple butterfly. This is a very pretty look with minimal work involved.

52 Christmas Card Throwdown – June 23rd – Stash – Wood Background

DT Badge


This week at 52 Christmas Card Throwdown Challenge we invite you to dig through your stash for something wood to add to your card. I made a very simple card. First I found a perfect background paper from Kaisercraft and cut it to fit an A2 card. Next, I found a wooden plaque made by Prima called Victorian Christmas Wooden Icon and used it as my sentiment. My card took less than 5 minutes to construct.

Crafty Hazelnut’s Christmas Challenge 391 – Use some washi tape

CHNC blog button DT

This week at CHNCC. we are challenging you to use washi tape on your project. I have to admit, I never use washi tape, I hoard it, but never use it. I purchased a box of tapes from Micheal by Crate Paper called Falala and used every tape at least once. The snowman is by Dilly Beans Stamps – Framed Snowman 2. I coloured the snowman with Copic Markers.

C.R.A.F.T. – Challenge 473 – 21st of June – Summer

This week the CRAFT Design Team challenges you to make a card for Summer! I started my quest looking for a summer paper and found a perfect one in my Couture Creations – Sea Breeze 6 x 6 paper pack. Next, I stamped an Impression Obsession image called Blue Booby. I think he and the sentiment (from the same set) were perfect. I coloured him with Copics. I fussy cut him out and inked the edge of the cardstock with a black marker.
