This challenge will last for the whole month of August 2017 – anything goes as long as it’s Christmas – it doesn’t have to be a card, you can link any project as long as it’s Christmas!

Once again this year, all of these monthly challenges are being generously sponsored by Bugaboo Stamps - a winner will be randomly chosen using random.

Bugaboo Stamps are proud to sponsor this challenge – they are offering 4 digital stamps to the randomly selected winner.

For my card I started by creating the background scene using the Landscape die from Memory Box. I diecut the houses/trees/snow from white card stock and backed it with dark blue. Next I coloured a Bugaboo stamp*, called “WRF Up”  *this stamp has been discontinued. Bugaboo added new stamps monthly, and several times a year discontinue older images. Check out their site, and sign up for their weekly newsletter! I fussy cut him out and added him to my night sky. The sentiment is from Penny Black – Festive Snippets.

C.R.A.F.T. – Challenge 426 – 27th of July – Summer

DTbadge

I love summer, and when I think of summer, I think of the Beach. Bugaboo Digi Stamps make a series of adorable Mermaid and fish themed stamp set called, “UNDER THE SEA BIRTHDAY SET“. I made a series of cards utilizing all the cute images. I coloured them with Copic markers and layered them on papers from my stash. The sentiments are from the same set.

C.R.A.F.T. Challenge 425 – 20th of July – Christmas

DTbadge

It is Christmas in July! It is never too early to start making Christmas cards for 2017. For my card I used a digital image from Dilly Beans called, “Holly Framed Penguin.” I coloured the little critter with my Derwent Inktense Coloured Pencils. I added added a sprig of holly from my Stampendous, “Die & Rubber Stamp Set Pop Up Winter Tweets Birds Free Us.” The background paper acts as my sentiment.

Making a Good Thing Better

I purchased these black on off-white note cards from Michael’s, but I just had to tszuj them up with die cut birds, butterflies and dragonflies. I coloured them with Copics, added new sentiments, and inked around the edges with Distress ink. They were 4 cards per pack and only $1.00.

When I saw our new challenge was rainbow, I immediately thought of the Framed Snowman digi stamp by Dilly Bean Stamps. I tried to make him as colorful as possible even using Copic Makersand a colourful Striped background. The sentiment is from Penny Black – Festive Snippets.
