52 Christmas Card Throwdown – April 2018 Sketch Challenge

DT Badge

This week at 52CCT the design team have a new Sketch Challenge. For my challenge, I started with colouring my Digi tamp called 3 Penguin Blocks by Dilly Beans Stamps. I coloured the images using Copic markers.Next, I diecut 3 squares using MFT - Die-namics Stitched Interactive Window Trio (note: the windows are attached on one side and I took my knife and cut the flap off). I taped the images behind the windows added a piece of ribbon and glued the front to the card backing. I added a sentiment from SSS and three snowflake sequins and three pearls.

For this week’s challenge, we are asking you to “Feature a Creature”! Even the challenge name sounds fun! For my card, I used a combination of a digi stamp from Silly Dilly Bean’s Stamps called Penguin Framed, a Polaroid die cut frame and a clear stamp from a die/stamp set by Lawn Fawn called Say Cheese. I coloured the images using my Copic markers. I added the images to some patterned paper from my stash!

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.

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.

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.
