CHNC blog button DT

This week the CHNCC Design Team is looking for the addition of a sticker or two. I used two Christmas stickers that were included in a Christmas paper pack from Kaisercraft – the border sticker and the sentiment one. The snowmen are by Mama Elephant. There is a wonderful series of multiple characters. I have a bunch of bunnies and a pack of pooches too! I added a little colour with my Copic markers

C.R.A.F.T. Challenge 456 – 22nd of February – Alien/Fantasy

DTbadge

With all the cards I make, I have very little children cards. This week’s challenge at C.R.A.F.T. is Alien/ Fantasy is perfect for those “Make Believe” cards. I started with creating a space-themed card. Next, I thought -fantasy – unicorns, and flying elephants.

I started with painting a watercolour sky using Distress Ink Safty Ocean, water, and a waterbrush on watercolour paper. While that was drying, I cut out clouds from the Mama Elephant die set - Cloud Nine - Creative Cuts. Next, I stamped my unicorns by MFT - BB Magical Unicorns, coloured them with Copic markers, added Wink of Stella to their horns, tail, and manes, and finally fussy cut them out. I assembled the card and added the sentiment also from the MFT Stamp set.

For my next card, I created the background using Zig Kuretake Gansai Tambi 24 COLOR SET, Zig Kuretake Gansai Tambi STARRY COLORS Set of 6, on watercolour paper. I set it aside to dry. Next, I stamped and coloured Mama Elephant’s – Space Bears with Copic markers. I fussy cut them out and started assembling the card. I added hand drawn stars and air hoses for the space suits, and stamped my sentiments.

For my final card, I used another Mama Elephant stamp set called FLY WITH ME, the matching dies, and Mama Elephant dies set - Cloud Nine - Creative Cuts. I coloured the critters with Copics. I arranged them on the card and stamped the balloons using a stamp set from Clearly Besotted ALL IN ONESIE Clear Stamp.

52 Christmas Card Throwdown – Feb 17, 2018 Theme – Polar Bear(s)

Hello Everyone, Myrna here! As a member of the Design Team for 52 CCT Challenge, we all get to select a month of Challenges. For our Theme Challenge, I selected Polar Bear(s). I love all kinds of bears from Teddy Bears to Polar Bears, thus my choice for this month’s theme. For my card I used dies. The bear die is from Marianne Design Cutting Dies & Clear Stamp – Eline’s Polar Bear COL1370. I created the card using various cardstock colours, stamp from Mama Elephant, and Stickles.

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.

 

C.R.A.F.T. Challenge 337 – 12th of November – Christmas

DTbadge Gosh, with Christmas just around the corner, the CRAFT team is challenging you to make a Christmas card. For this week’s challenge I made two cards using Digi stamps by Deedees Digis.

Card 1 -  I used DA Penguin and Whale from the Ice Fishing* set. I added a Christmas present (stamp from Mama Elephant) on top of the Orca’s nose to add to the Christmas theme. While this digi is available pre-colored, I opted to print the outline version and hand colour with Copic markers. *Note: This set includes: 4 outline images, 4 layering images, 4 pre-colored images, and 8 sentiments, in JPG and PNG formats. Also included are 3 printable 8.5×11-inch digital papers, in JPG format only. All set elements have a resolution of 300 dpi/ppi, and are easily resizable to fit your crafting needs.

Card 2 – I used Christmas Basket from Seasonal Baskets*. I made two versions of this card, simply switching up the papers in the background and sentiments (by Paper Smooches and Impression Obsession).*Note: This digital set includes: 6 outline images (includes bonus “Empty Basket” image!), 5 pre-colored images, 5 white-filled layering images, and 3 sentiments, in JPG and PNG file formats. All set elements have a resolution of 300 dpi/ppi, and are easily resizable to fit your crafting needs.
