52 Christmas Card Throwdown – Challenge 52CCT34-18 – Sketch

DT Badge

This week’s challenge at 52CCT is to design a card based on a sketch designed by Lucinda. I was not sure what I was going to do until I looked at all the tickers I still had on my desk from last week’s Stash Challenge. To make my card, I simply used paper and stickers from my stash. I turned the sketch on its side and created my card -Eazy Peazy!

Simply Create Too – Challenge #141 – 8/3 to /8/31 – Create a Bookmark

1 Simply Create 2 DT

 

Our monthly challenge at Simply Create Too! is to create a bookmark. Well, I couldn’t just make a bookmark, I had to make a card with a bookmark, then a separate bookmark to match the same theme. For my project, I used stamps from Honey Bee Stamps - UNDER THE SEA and ZEN OCEAN. I started by stamping the Zen Sea with Versamark Ink, adding black embossing powder then colouring it with TH Oxide Inks. The mermaids were embossed with gold embossing powder and coloured with Copic markers. Next I fussy cut them out and set aside. I used an older die and stamp set from Our Daily Bread to make the bookmarks (retired). I also used a you sentiment from SSS and Celebrate die set from Hero Arts.

Crafty Hazelnut’s Christmas Challenge 396 – For a man or boy

CHNC blog button DT

The CHNCCC is to make a card for a man or boy. What could be better than polar bears skating, fishing, or just hanging around! I used MFT - BB Polar Bear Pals. I absolutely adore this set of stamps, and it is so hard to select just one bear, so I used them all! I coloured them with Copic markers and added an embossed sentiment from SSS – Small Folded Banners Holiday set.
