52 {Christmas} Card Throwdown – Theme Challenge

 CCT - Design For Badge

When I saw the Theme of this challenge, I thought of the skating bear from MFT – Polar Bear Pals. The stamps also show the joys of ice fishing and playing outdoors.

One Stamp-Eighteen Cards – Featuring BB Polar Bear Pals by MFT

I was asked to create 18 Personal Christmas Cards that depicted “Canada”. I immediately thought of Polar Bears, and My Favorite Things –  BB Polar Bear Pals stamps and dies were Perfect! Well you know me, I can’t create the same card twice (well I can, but this is way more fun) so I created 18 different cards using the same stamp set. Here is the results!

When creating the cards, I used Copics, Derwent Inktense Pencils, Distress Inks to colour. I also used various dies, stamps, and punches from Memory Box, MFT Dienamics, Stampin’ Up, Spellbinders, Lawn Fawn dies, SSS, and Penny Black. Plus: papers, card stock, gems, sequins, stickers, ribbon and twine for my stash. If you have specific questions about the products I used feel free to contact me.

52 {Christmas} Card Throwdown – Sketch

I am sorry I was a little late posted our current challenge. This challenge is based on a Sketch. I used an adorable stamp from Lili of the Valley Stamps called, “Present Trio.” This stamp is really not a Christmas stamp, but I thought I would improvise. I started with colouring the little bears with my Copic markers. Next I fussy cut them out. The sentiment is from a Lawn fawn Christmas based 6 x 6 paper pad. Once I adhered the images and sentiment, I added some die cut snowflakes from Marianne Designs to give the card a more festive feel. The finally touches were adding clear Wink of Stella to the presents, glossy accents to the bears noses, and a few gems.

C.R.A.F.T. – Challenge 408 – 23rd of March – Add a Charm

DTbadgeThis week’s challenge to open to any type of card with the challenge of adding a charm. I make jewelry from time to time and have quite a few charms in my stash. I opted to use this adorable stamp by MFT called Spring has Sprung. I stamped it on kraft paper using Versafine Tuxedo Black and coloured it with Copics and a white gel pen. To add some drama,  I tore on edge and backed it on a crimped neutral card stock. I added a sentiment from Lawn Fawn, wrapped some twine around the card front and tied on a cute little sun charm.

52 {Christmas} Card Throwdown – Colours

CCT - Design For Badge

Welcome to our mid-month challenge. For this challenge, we are asking you to design a Christmas card using cream, aqua and brown. I started my card by blending my background strip using distress inks – peacock feathers and vintage photo. Once that was done I stamped various snowflakes for my stash in the same ink. I trimmed to strip to fit a A2 cream coloured card. Next I cut 4 thin strips of aqua and brown card stock and edged the snowflake strip. I die cut snowflakes using dies from Lawn Fawn and Paper Smooches in cream, aqua, and brown card stock. The sentiment is from Papertry Ink.

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.
