Craftyhazelnut’s Christmas Challenge Extra – January 2017

I am so excited to have joined Craftyhazelnut’s Christmas Challenge Extra . I worked with Hazel on The Glory of Christmas as a member of their Design Team and she was fabulous. I love card making and especially love “Christmas” card making.

This challenge will last for the whole month of January 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!

For my first card(s) I used Christmas rocking horse by Bugaboo. I hand painted this image using Derwent Inktense watercolour pencils. Once complete, I cut the horse out and layered it on top on Kaisercraft paper. The sentiments are tags from Kaisercraft as well. I made this card in pink and blue for a little girl and little boy.

Teddy Bear Christmas!

I was made into an “honourary Grandma” to my girlfriend’s daughter’s girls. There are four of them in total ranging from 3 to 9. This year I bought them all matching Teddy Bears, but to make each one unique to each “grand” daughter I decided to make each teddy a tutu. For Mya, who is in ballet, I made a pretty pink and white tu-tu. For her sister, Abbey, who does HipHop dancing, the skirt is black and pink. For Zoey and Piper, who both live in the USA, I made one tutu the colours of the US flag – red, white and blue, and the other to match the Canadian flag – red and white. I also made a cute gift tag in matching colours to attach to the ear tag and matching Christmas cards.

The Teddies decked out in their Tutus!

Ear tags made using Penny Black – Tutu Sweet Stamp. Coloured with Copicsear-tagMatching Christmas Cards. I made the cards the 2016 Kaisercraft Christmas Wishes Collection Card stock and die cuts. The bear was created from BEAR die set by Marianne Design Collectibles. I made the tutu simply hand switching then ruffling coloured tulle and gluing it to the bear. I popped the bear up. I will create a box envelop to accommodate the thickness of the card design.
