Click here to go to challenge blog

This week at C.R.A.F.T. invites you to show us your handmade embellishments. To make my card I started with an adorable clear stamp/die set from Sweet n Sassy called, Snowman Soup. I started by stamping the snowmen and colouring them with my Copics. Next I die cut them out and set aside. I also made a small rosette by cutting a long strip of cardstock and using my score board scored a line every other indent. Next I fan folders the strip, joined the ends and glued one of the diecut snowmen in the center for stability. Once I had all my pieces together I assempled my card. I used one of the sentiments from the same stamp set.

52 Christmas Card Throwdown – February 3, 2018 – Sketch Challenge

52cctc

Hello Everyone. For the month of February, I am in charge of the challenges for the52 Christmas Card Throwdown. The sketch above is just a guideline, but you are welcome to modify it to suit your card design. While the sketch shows a design for an A2 card in landscape format, you can make your card any size or shape. In my example, I used a square vs an oval, snowflakes vs stars, and patterned papers vs solid papers.

For the main image, I used a digital stamp by Delicious Doodles called, A Robin’s Christmas. I coloured it with Copic markers. I used 3 snowflakes dies from Tim Holtz’s Snowflake Thinlites. The sentiment is from Sweet n Sassy, Cardinal Christmas. The cardstock and gems are from my stash.

 Hope you will join us.

Sketch 060717

This week’s challenge is a sketch challenge. For my card I used an oval verses a circle and adjusted the sketch to fit a standard A2 card format. I used a digi from Delicious Doodles, called “On the Lookout”. I stop coloured it with my Copics. Next I cut it out using my oval Dienamics from MFT. I cut out some white embossed card stock and layered it according to the sketch.

130 Christmas Cards for Seniors!

christmas-images-1

Every year I make 130 Christmas cards for the Belmont Long Term Care Home. It is my way of paying it forward for the fabulous care they provided my mother. I love to colour while watch TV so I will stamp numerous images and hand colour them with Copic Markers, Zig Water Colour Brushes, Derwent Inktenses Pencils, or Distress inks. Once I get a number completed, I then sit down and start to assemble my cards. No two cards are the same, While I may use the same image, I colour them differently, use a different card format, different card stock, etc. I also make Fall/Thanksgiving/Halloween, Easter/Spring, Valentine’s Day, Remembrance Day (for the veterans), plus birthday cards. It keeps me busy, and I really enjoy it. I also make cards for myself and friends. I dropped the cards off for distribution on December 1, 2016.
