Our challenge this week at CHCC is to add some gold. My card did not photograph that well because of the reflective nature of the materials but is really pretty in real life. I die cut my deer and trees from gold foil cardstock and glued it on a night sky background I created with my Zig Kuretake Gansai Tambi 24 COLOR SET and Zig Kuretake Gansai Tambi STARRY COLORS Set of 6. Sentiment die is from Avery Elle, and Deer/Tree die from Penny Black.

For this week’s Crafty Hazelnut’s Christmas Challenge, we would like to see a Quick and Easy Card. While my card may look like it would take a while to make it was simply a matter of cutting 3 frames, inking the background, stamping the sentiment and pasting it together. The whole card took me less than 15 minutes. I used Memory Box Die – Debutante Frame and Lamp Post Frame, Tim Holtz’s Oxide Distress Inks, JustRite Re-enforcement die, ribbon, gems, and paper from my stash. The sentiment is from Avery Elle.
For our 414th Challenge we are asking you to try to make a 3D Decoupage project. This is one technique I do not do often so it is a challenge to me. My friend, Pearl, purchased a 3D Precut Card kit Cross Cut Out with Candle & Flowers sold through Ecstasy Crafts.
There were enough pieces in the kit to complete 8 different cards. The pieces are all precut so it is just a matter of assembling the 3D images. I used to two laser card card bases, and made to extra cards with black and white card stock. The sentiments are die cuts and stamps from Avery Elle and Verve. I made them all up as sympathy cards.

After the strange winter we just had, I am looking forward to Spring, tulips and Easter, For today’s card I went for simplicity. I die cut 3 bunnies using a Memory Box die and three coloured papers. I also cut out two strips of grass using dies from MFT. The sentiment is by Avery Elle. I assembled the card, and for the final touch I added pom pom tails.

Our new challenge is a Sketch Challenge. I kept to the basic sketch and added a little holly embellishment from Avery Elle. I used various green papers from my stash. I stamped the sentiment, using a retired sentiment stamp/die set from JustRite, in two colours of ink – Stampin Up – Gumball Green and Cherry Cobbler.
