Crafty Hazelnut’s Christmas Challenge 441 – winter fun

CHNC blog button DT

The CHNCC this week is to design a Christmas project showing winter fun. What is more fun than getting outside and building a snowman? I used a stamp from Papertry Inc. called Winter Hills, and a snowman digi stamp from Dilly Beans stamps called 523 Heart Snowman. The sentiment is from MFT. I coloured the images with Copics, added some Stickles, and added some snowflake stickers from my stash.

52 Christmas Card Challenge – 52CCT21-19 – June 1st – Sketch

This week at 52CCT, Design Team member, Fabolia designed the Sketch. I love these challenges because they give you the card design aspect, and I especially love everyone’s interpretation of it. I used a cute stamp from Penny Black, Jolly Christmas Friends. I used Copics to colour my image, a sentiment from MFT, and paper from my stash to layer.

Crafty Hazelnut’s Christmas Challenge 440 – include a bear

CHNC blog button DT

I have collected bears all my life. It all started when my brother (who was 8 years older than me) gave me his own panda bear stuffy when I was born. He also called me Pooh or Bear! When I think of Christmas I fondly remember my brother buying me special Christmas bears. When the CHNCC Design Team wanted a bear themed card it was easy for me to make one because I have 100′s of bear stamps, dies, stickers, digis, and SVG cut files. For today’s card, I used a new SVG I purchased from A Little Scrap of Heaven called, Ready for Christmas. I inked the edges with distress ink for added dimension.

52 Christmas Card Challenge – 52CCT20-19 – May 25th – Technique: Eraser

This week we at 52 CCTC are trying a whole new technique to me. It is called Eraser Technique. For examples of this technique and the instruction check out the Eraser technique (herehere and here). So I started with a blank A2 card and MFT’s Snow Flurry Stencil. I secured the stencil on my craft matt using masking tape. Next, I took a piece of sandpaper and brushed an HB pencil across it making lead dust. I used a clean distress ink sponge tool by Tim Holtz and picked up the dustings and ran the tool across the stencil leaving leaded snowflakes across the card. I stamped Penny Black’s, Snowy on the card. I then erased any snowflakes that showed on the stamped area. The final step was to colour the little snowman with Tombow markers in grey tones. The only colour I used was on his cheeks. The sentiment is from SSS.

Crafty Hazelnut’s Christmas Challenge 439 – use some silver

CHNC blog button DT

This week at CHNCC the theme is to use some silver. I made a very simple card. I used a die by Memory Box called Dazzling Snowflake. It cuts a negative snowflake, and I backed it in silver foil paper. The joy sentiment is by SSS. While it is not apparently the white cardstock is actually pearlized and quite pretty.
