This week at CHNCCC, we are looking for a card that makes the sentiment the focal point of the card. I have loved this technique since seeing the very talented Jennifer McGuire demonstrate it. Vs me trying to explain the technique, I have attached a link to her blog on the how to’s. https://www.jennifermcguireink.com/2017/05/3-ways-alphabet-word-dies.html If you have never been to Jennifer’s blog before, check her out. She is one very talented lady! She is one of my favourites, and I also love her Online Card Classes.

This week at 52 CCT, the Design Team is looking for a Pet themed Christmas card. I purchased this adorable stamp last year but never used it. It is called W174 Patient Pup by Stampendous. I coloured him with my Copic markers, and then just simply layered him on the card front.

This week the C.R.A.F.T. Design Team is looking for the addition of something wooden. A year ago, I purchased 50 adorable wooden ladybugs and along with StarStampz - Spring Ladybug Digi Stamp I made a cute general Hello card. I printed the image using my laser printer, then ran the image through my Minc machine using shiny black foil. Next I added colour with my Copic markers. I used B&W dotted paper(MFT) a flourish, stitched circle die (MFT), and Hello sentiment (SSS).

For the CHNCC we are looking for the addition of a stocking. I purchased the MFT Die-namics Fireplace and never used it. So when I saw stocking(s) I had to use it. The diecut all the pieces in various colours and assembled it on my card front. Once done it was lacking something, so I went through my dies and stamps and came across Lawn Fawn’s, here we go a-waddling stamp set and it was perfect. I stamped it directly on the coloured paper, then coloured the image with Copics. I used a sentiment from the same stamp set.

The Colour challenge at 52CCT is to make a card using silver. I decided to make a card by stamping in Versamark on Black cardstock, then using silver embossing powder to add to the design elements of the image. I made two cards: one simple, and the other with a detailed silver frame. I used a Stampedous stamp called Our Doorstep.
