This week, the Design Team at CHNCC, is looking for a Quick and Easy card. I have a number of pre-coloured images. (I like to do a number of stamped images, then colour them while I watch television) I picked Copic coloured digi stamp image from Delicious Doodles called, A Robin’s Christmas. Next, I grabbed some Christmas cardstock scraps from my stash and layered the card, The sentiment was a pre-printed one.

52 Christmas Card Throwdown – CCT5-19 – Sketch

This week, Allison from our Design Team, drew up this Sketch, as the inspiration for your card. It is a very simple design that you can make anywhere from CAS to Complex. I opted for the CAS. I have a number of images that I have stamped and coloured with Copics while watching TV, so I grabbed a line of snowmen, and a line of fancy dotted cardstock and created my card. The sentiment is from MFT and the digi stamp is called, 3 snowmen blocks by Silly Dilly Beans Stamps (retired).

52 Christmas Card Throwdown – CCT4-19 – Technique – Heat Embossing

This week’s challenge at 52 Christmas Card Challenge is to make a card using heat embossing. I selected two stamps by Hero Arts. I started with white embossing the trees in white Hero Arts Embossing powder. Next using various blue shades of Oxide Ink, I sponged the Neenah Solar cardstock background in various tones. I cleaned the ink off the embossed image with a baby wipe. I added the sentiment in Versafine Black and finished the project by layered the image on white and blue cardstock. I decided to flick water into the card for the effect.

This week’s challenge at CHCC, we are looking for a card without a sentiment. I chose to use a stamp by Stampendous called, Christmas Cottage. I started by embossing the image with white embossing powder. Nxt using Oxide Distress Inks I coloured the card front using yellow, oranges and reds. I cleaned the ink off the embossing, layered the card on card front then flicked water droplets over the front for effect.
