This week at 52CCT, the Design Team is looking at the way you colour your cards. I love using Copic Markers. It is amazing some of the things you can do with these markers. I am by no means an expert. For inspiration of what you can do with Copic markers, I would strongly advise you to check out Sandy Allnock. This lady can Rock Copic Markers!
For my card, I used an adorable Bird Brain digi stamp by From the Heart Stamps (unfortunately this company is closed). I coloured it with Copics and die cut it was a circle die by MFT. I folded a piece of blue cardstock 10″ x 5″ and cut the same size circle so I ended up with a card with a circle in the centre. Next, I glued the image into the inside of the card. For the final touch, I added a die cut from Find It Trading – Precious Marieke Die – Spirit of Christmas Snowflake Circle.

This week at CHNCCC we are looking for a project that uses patterned paper. I using one image from my favourite series from Bugaboo stamps called Christmas Ewe. Bugaboo makes these wonderful sheep stamps for every occasion! I coloured the little sheep with Derwent Inkintense Watercolour pencils. I cropped the image and layered him on various Christmas papers from my stash.

The C.R.A.F.T. Design Team says, “Let’s get active and involve Sports this week’s Card!” After making a Christmas card for our last challenge, I was still in the winter mood. I used Dr. Digi’s, Simple Snowman. I printed him out using my laser printer, then put him through my Minc machine using the shiny black foil. I filled him in with a bit of Copic Colouring then layered him on a die cut scenic background using Stampin Ups Christmas dies. The sentiments and snowballs are from Lawn Fawn. My sports are Sleigh riding and a snowball fight. Note: This cute little digi is available in B&W or Coloured.

The week the Design Team at 52CCT is looking for a punny holiday/funny holiday card. I have used this stamp in the past, but I just love Penny Black’s Snowy the snowman, and if you add a dog you get an extra bonus. I coloured the image with Copic markers. I cut out each scene using MFT stitched squares/rectangles. The sentiment is from SSS.

When CHCC Challenge was looking for plaid, I immediately thought of the stamp/dieset I purchased from PhotoPlay called O CANADA. I used their stamps, dies and cardstock from this release. Note: They have also released a Christmas version that I have on order. While this set was designed for Canada Day, it blends well for many occasions, especially if you are Canadian!. I coloured my characters with Copics, die cut them out, and pasted them on plaid paper from the same release.
