This week at Crafty Hazelnut’s Christmas Challenge, we are looking for a card for a man or boy! Well, I opted for a “Guy” card based on Christmas Cheer, or I should say Christmas beer. I used a fabulous little digi by From the Heart* Digital Stamps, called Birdbrain Brew. *Note: The artist who produced these wonderful images passed away in 2017 and her site has been closed. I coloured the image with Copic markers, added a sentiment and used a masculine looking paper background. The inside of the card reads, May Santa gift you with lots of Holiday Beers!
I look forward to seeing everyone cards!
This week’s challenge at Crafty Hazelnut’s Christmas Challenge is to make a card using a snowman. I am using a cute digi from From the Heart* called, FtHS Dancing Snowman_Boom Box. I coloured it with Copics Markers and added a little glossy accents to highlight the Boom Box. *Note: From The Heart Stamps has now closed. Sadly the extremely talents artist passed away and her website was shut down.

This week at 52CCT, the Design Team is looking at the way you colour your cards. I love using Copic Markers. It is amazing some of the things you can do with these markers. I am by no means an expert. For inspiration of what you can do with Copic markers, I would strongly advise you to check out Sandy Allnock. This lady can Rock Copic Markers!
For my card, I used an adorable Bird Brain digi stamp by From the Heart Stamps (unfortunately this company is closed). I coloured it with Copics and die cut it was a circle die by MFT. I folded a piece of blue cardstock 10″ x 5″ and cut the same size circle so I ended up with a card with a circle in the centre. Next, I glued the image into the inside of the card. For the final touch, I added a die cut from Find It Trading – Precious Marieke Die – Spirit of Christmas Snowflake Circle.

Welcome to the 2018 52 Christmas Card Throwdown first challenge of the month and year! Andreja has designed a fun sketch challenge for us and it is never too early to start your Christmas cards! Besides….it is really fun!
For this challenge, I started by printing my digital stamp from A Day for Daisies - Fuzzy Bunnies. I used my Copic markers to add just a hint of colour. Next, I used an embossing folder (retired) from Stampin Up – Northern Flurries. The sentiment Joy is a Penny Black diecut. My card design is a 5 x 7, so I created the background using some cardstock I had on hand. I created a fishtailed banner in a matching blue to place behind the bunnies card and added it to the card front. For the finishing touches, I added a snowflake button and a few gems.
We are running our challenges weekly, so you will have lots of opportunities to join us making cards for your friends and family.
