52 Christmas Card Challenge – 52CCT20-19 – May 25th – Technique: Eraser

This week we at 52 CCTC are trying a whole new technique to me. It is called Eraser Technique. For examples of this technique and the instruction check out the Eraser technique (herehere and here). So I started with a blank A2 card and MFT’s Snow Flurry Stencil. I secured the stencil on my craft matt using masking tape. Next, I took a piece of sandpaper and brushed an HB pencil across it making lead dust. I used a clean distress ink sponge tool by Tim Holtz and picked up the dustings and ran the tool across the stencil leaving leaded snowflakes across the card. I stamped Penny Black’s, Snowy on the card. I then erased any snowflakes that showed on the stamped area. The final step was to colour the little snowman with Tombow markers in grey tones. The only colour I used was on his cheeks. The sentiment is from SSS.

Crafty Hazelnut’s Christmas Challenge 439 – use some silver

CHNC blog button DT

This week at CHNCC the theme is to use some silver. I made a very simple card. I used a die by Memory Box called Dazzling Snowflake. It cuts a negative snowflake, and I backed it in silver foil paper. The joy sentiment is by SSS. While it is not apparently the white cardstock is actually pearlized and quite pretty.

52 Christmas Card Challenge – 52CCT19-19 – May 18th – Theme: Choral

This week’s 52 Christmas Card Challenge Throwdown is Choral. For my card, I started by downloading Free Printable music sheets (I did a Google search). Once downloaded, I printed them to fit an A2 card. Next I distressed the music using Distress Ink. I decided to cut the sheet down further, curl the edges and mount them offset on the page. I added a little choir boy Digi stamp from Pure Innocent. I coloured him with  Copic markers. For my final touch I added a few sequins.

52 Christmas Card Challenge – 52CCT18-19 – May 11th – Colours – Brown, Silver, Turquoise

I made my card that month using my Cricut Explore Air and a wonderful SVG files from A Little Scrap of Heaven called Jiggle Bell Friends. The files are sold as a bundle and I used the reindeer. All the papers are from my stash. I added highlights with a white gel pen and Copics. The snowflakes are stickers I purchased during Christmas from the Dollar Store. I added a pom-pom nose vs the SVG file one provided. The finished card is 5×7.
