This week the CRAFT Design Team is challenging you to make a Christmas themed card. For the challenge, I made a wintery scene using Stampin’ Up’s, Polar Bear from Zoo Review Stamp Set. I stamped him on white cardstock and used a B015 Copic marker the draw around him to add some shadow. Next, I cut him out left part of the card stock to remain as snow. I glued him on a patterned paper and used a pre-designed sentiment from Kaiser Craft. In hindsight, I should have edged the polar bear which a black marker so the white card was not noticeable.

CHNC blog button DT

This week’s challenge at CHNCCC, we are looking for Winter Fun. When I was little, I loved going outside, no matter how cold it was. We had an outdoor skating rink and I skated every day. I picked an adorable skating bird by Bugaboo Stamps called Winbird Skate. I coloured the bird with Copic markers and cut him out using a large 3″ punch. I purposely cut off the right edge to make the card more interesting. The papers are from my stash.

The design team at CRAFT challenge you to make a card and add some ribbon and sparkle. I love the dolls that were created by Julie Nutting at Prima Marketing. The little girl I used is called Abby. She was one of my first dollies, and still one of my favourites. I stamped her, coloured her skin and hair with Copic markers, then paper pieced her dress. Next, I added some gems to her belt and a ribbon bows. I glue her on the most sparkly paper by Kaiser craft I had in my stash.
