52 Christmas Card Throwdown – January 2018 Theme – Fairies

Andreja came up with a wonderful theme for this week’s 52CCT challenge! I really had to put on my thinking cap, As I do not have any Christmas fairy stamps, I made due with my Lawn Fawn – Fairy Friends Stamp. I started with stamp the Christmas Tree from the On the Town Clear Stamp set. I stamped the fairies separately, coloured them with Copic Markers and die cut them out with the matching dies. Next, I added gems to the tree, placed the fairies, then added gems to their hands to make it appear they decorated the tree, The background coloured were created with the new Oxide Distress Inks.

CHNC blog button DT

For this week’s Crafty Hazelnut’s Christmas Challenge we want you to use a sentiment as a feature of your card. For my image, I used a retired Bugaboo Stamp featuring a Reindeer. I coloured him with Copics and fussy cut him out and glued him to the card front. For the sentiment I chose a large die cut from Paper Smooches simply titled Season’s Greetings.

For this week’s challenge, we are asking you to “Feature a Creature”! Even the challenge name sounds fun! For my card, I used a combination of a digi stamp from Silly Dilly Bean’s Stamps called Penguin Framed, a Polaroid die cut frame and a clear stamp from a die/stamp set by Lawn Fawn called Say Cheese. I coloured the images using my Copic markers. I added the images to some patterned paper from my stash!

52 Christmas Card Throwdown Challenge – January 13 – Colours


For our Colour challenge, we are challenging you to make a card using only Brown, Red, and Cream! For this card I used a deer and snowflake die, various snowflakes dies, Peace die, and snowflake wooden buttons. I used a birch veneer, white, cream, and black cardstock with a patterned brown paper to make up the card. The final touch was the red pearl I used for the deer’s nose. I also rounded the corners.
