It is time for our monthly Colour Challenge at 52 Christmas Card Throwdown. We are looking for some very bright and lively colours this week. I selected a fun digi stamp from Bugaboo Stamps called Trop Santa Suntan. I coloured him with my Copic markers, fuzzy cut him out and used various papers from my stash. The sentiment is from Lawn Fawn – Toboggan Together Set.
Please join us weekly for our fun Christmas Card Challenges!
This month’s challenge at Simply Create Too is to make a card using your favourite colours. I really like pinks and aqua/turquoise. For my card, I started by stamping the buildings and trees using Lawn Fawn’s Christmas Village. I hand coloured the images using various pink and aqua Copic markers. I die cut them out using the matching dies. The background was created using Tim Holtz Oxide Distress Inks in green, blue, and pinks. I splashed on water droplets to create a snowy texture. Finally, I created my pretty little snowy village.
This week the C.R.A.F.T. Design Team is challenging you to think of Three of a Kind. For my card, I decided to try out my new Altenew Layering Stamp – Tulip Stamp Set. I love tulips. They are my favorite flowers! With this stamp set, you stamp various coloured inks (Hero Arts/Stampin’ Up) in layers vs hand colouring the image. I used my Misti to help me line up the stamps and I think I did a pretty good job on my first attempt. The grass was created using a Lawn Fawn die.
Each week, we have wonderful prizes that are generously supplied by our sponsors. Please take a moment to check out the fabulous stamps at Rick St. dennis Digital Stamps
Andreja came up with a wonderful theme for this week’s 52CCT challenge! I really had to put on my thinking cap, As I do not have any Christmas fairy stamps, I made due with my Lawn Fawn – Fairy Friends Stamp. I started with stamp the Christmas Tree from the On the Town Clear Stamp set. I stamped the fairies separately, coloured them with Copic Markers and die cut them out with the matching dies. Next, I added gems to the tree, placed the fairies, then added gems to their hands to make it appear they decorated the tree, The background coloured were created with the new Oxide Distress Inks.
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!
I hope you will join us!
