chnc-challenge-extra-dt-button

This challenge will last for the whole month of July 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 a night sky. I did this by using watercolour paper. I taped it down to a flat surface. I wet the paper using a wide paint brush, then using a round brush added various random spots of colour – yellow, pink, orange, blue, purple. Once dry, I added the top with black leaving bits of the colour to peek through. I left it dry again, then splattered white ink to act as stars. I used Zig Kuretake Gansai Tambi watercolours. 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 Whimsy Stamps.

Outlawz – Thursday’s with a Twist – Christmas – June 15th

Hello everyone. I was invited to be a guest designer for the month of June by the DT team at Outlawz. You can join for free! They have a fabulous blog – full of challenges, tutorials, forum, freebies, gallery and more. I am designing for their Thursday Twist Challenges. This challenge is “open” with a added twist each week. This week’s Twist is “Christmas.” To find out more about this fabulous group click on the link below.

The Outlawz Challenges

I made two cards for this challenge. Both Skating themes, both totally different.

Card 1: For my first card I used an adorable image from Bugaboo Stamps, called “Winbird Skate”. I coloured him with my Copic markers and layered him on red and black card stock. For some added fun, I used red Stickles for snowflakes and the heart tattoo on his rump. The sentiment is by Whimsy Stamps, called “Merry and Bright Digital Sentiments“. There are 11 fun sentiments and 4 Christmas stamps.

Next I fussy cut them out and put aside. Next using scraps of card stock, I made a snowy background, complete with frozen lake. I arranged my little critters and for the final detail added clear Stickles. The sentiment is by Whimsy Stamps, called “Merry and Bright Digital Sentiments“. There are 11 fun sentiments and 4 Christmas stamps.

Card 1:  I started with am image from Bugaboo – Gus  Birthday – Old Fart. I coloured him with Copic markers. I also printed a Santa’s hat so I could convert the “Birthday” card into a “Christmas” card. I fussy cut him out and layered him on top of a black banner and patterned card stock. For the final touch I added a sentiment from Whimsy Stamps called, “Merry and Bright Digital Sentiments“.

Card 2: I made a collage card using Tim Holtz’s, “Rainman die” and Stamps by Ryn, “Raindrops”. I used patterned kraft paper and popped the image up with dimensional tape. I also use distress inks to add depth. The sentiment is from Whimsy Stamps called, “Friend Quotes – Digital Stamp.”

For my card, I used a “retired” Bugaboo stamp called Santa Ornament. I used a star filled patterned paper for my background. I drew three strings to hold the ornaments using a silver pen. One ornament is a sticker by Kaisercraft and the other is a sentiment sticker also from Kaisercraft, The third ornament is the digi stamp that I coloured using my Derwent Inktense Watercolour pencils. I fussy cut him out and adhered it to the card.

Note: Bugaboo adds new stamps every month. From time to time, they retire their older stamps. I would recommend signing up for their newsletter to keep appraised of all their sales, retirement sales, freebies, challenges, etc.
