52 Christmas Card Throwdown Challenge – 52CCT37-19 – Sketch Challenge

Our fabulous 52 Christmas Card Throwdown Challenge DT, Branka, has designed a great sketch to inspire this week’s card. I turned the card/sentiment to fit an A2 landscape format. The stamp is by Clearly Besotted, LET’S PRANCE. I coloured the image with Copics and Distressed Ink. I used a circle die and snowflake button.

Crafty Hazelnut’s Christmas Challenge 458 – sentiment as the focal point

CHNC blog button DT

This week the Crafty Hazelnut’s Christmas Challenge Design Team challenges you to make a card with the sentiment as the focal point. I used a number of different elements to this card. I started with a debossed background. Next, I used smooshed technique and die cut a frame. I used a Joy sentiment with a nativity design as the “O”. The final detail was adding a ribbon to bring the overall design together

I look forward to seeing everyone’s designs.

52 Christmas Card Throwdown Challenge – 52CCT36-19 – Technique Challenge – Easel or Tri-fold Card

This is my final challenge for September. I am ending with the Technique Challenge. There are many fabulous YouTube, Pinterest, Google tutorials about how to make an Easel or Tri-fold card. If you have any questions, please feel to contact me directly.
For my card, I broke out my Cricut and a great SVG Easel card by My Scrappy Chick called Snowman and Friend. The sentiment is from Penny Black. I inked the edges of the white cardstock on the snowman to give him a little more dimension.
I look forward to seeing everyone’s take on a multi-folded card.

Netta from the 52CCT Design Team is inviting us to try a new technique. I have provided some directions on how to do the technique above. I went in a slightly different direction. I used Distress Inks and sponged them on Neenah White Cardstock in various colours. Next, I stamped a bear, bucket of fish, and tree in Versamark ink and embossed in clear powder. Next, I  blended Versamark black ink over the cardstock. Finally, I wiped the ink off the embossed images with a paper towel. The bears are from MFT (My Favorite Things POLAR BEAR PALS), the trees (Clearly Besotted LET’S PRANCE) and sentiment by SSS.

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.
