Gosh, Christmas and Valentine’s Day just passed, and Mother’s Day and Easter are fast approaching! Our challenge this week is the create a Mother’s Day Card. I decided to dust off my Cricut machine and using a fabulous Cascade Card design from Dreaming Tree, I created a Mother’s Day card. This card design would also be lovely for a birthday, wedding, anniversary, and more. The sentiment is from Simon Says Stamps.

52 Christmas Card Throwdown – technique/stash – Recycling 52CCT8-19

Each month a member of the 52CCC Design Team chooses the challenges for the month. This month Allison chose the challenges. Her pick this month was Recycling. I had a piece of Christmas paper in my stash that I thought I could add my own twist to. Where the paper actually had a few poinsettias, I used an older Spellbinder Poinsettias Die and cut out the flowers from some old red and green envelopes I had in my stash. For the flower centres, I used some half pearls from an old card that I had kicking around. The sentiment was from SSS.

This week the Design Team at Crafty Hazelnut’s Christmas Challenge is looking for some Gold. I made another quick and easy card using up some scraps and loose embellishments (Kaisercraft) on my desktop and counter. (I really need to clean up my craft room!)

Crafty Hazelnut’s Christmas Challenge 425 – use some green

For Crafty Hazelnut’s Christmas Challenge we are looking for some Green! I made a very quick and simple card using some paper and embellishment I had sitting on my desk. I started with a piece of paper that was shy of A2 card front. It measured 5.5 x 3.75. So I got inventive. I cut down my card base to fit, then found 4 Christmas balls and a round sentiment by Kaisercraft. The top ball I let hang over the top edge. (It fits perfectly in an A2 envelop)

52 Christmas Card Throwdown – 52CCT7-19 – Theme – Winter Trees

Allison from the 52CCC Design Team has chosen Winter Trees as the Theme Challenge this month. I used a new stamp from Penny Black called, Snowy Village 40-558. I started by stamping the image using MFT Black ink. Next, I coloured the building with Copic markers. Using blue toned Oxide Distress Inks I sponged the background. For the finishing touch, I flicked water droplets over the image to produce the oxide effect.
