DT Badge

For our monthly Theme challenge at 52 Christmas Card Throwdown, we are looking for a card using Script. I made my card using a Frostville Die by Memory Box and Sue Wilson Christmas Dies – Festive Collection Let It Snow. This was a quick and simple card to make taking less than 10 minutes. The gold snowflake is an embellishment from my stash.

DT Badge
Welcome to the 52 Christmas Card Throwdown Challenge. This month, I am in charge of the challenges. The above sketch is the July Sketch Challenge. For my card, I chose three adorable little Santa birds from the Penny Black’s Winter Wonderland stamp. I coloured them with my Copic markers, fussy cut them out, then glued them on Memory Box’s, Frosty Border, die-cut on paper from my stash.

Simply Create Too – Challenge 139 – For a Male

1 Simply Create 2 DT

This month’s challenge falls into Father’s Day. While you do not need to create a Father’s Day card, it must for suitable for a male. I created an adorable little workbench fold out card that will fit easily into an A2 envelope. I got my inspiration from 2 talented ladies on YouTube (links are at the bottom of my blog). I started with cutting out the pattern in black cardstock. I have numerous suitable dies cuts of tools, papers, stamps, embossing folders, etc. Next, I die the pegboard for the back wall of the bench, embossed Aluminium tape for the side walls, cut to fit SSS pre-embossed woodgrain craft paper for the front of the counter, then added the various tools and signs.

Dies: Frantic Stamper Precision Die – Small Hand Tools FRA-DIE-10154

Simply Create Too – Challenge 137 – Use Diecuts

1 Simply Create 2 DT

This month the Simply Create Too Design Team Challenge is to make a Card using Diecuts. I love die cuts. I have invested a little fortune in dies and don’t use them nearly enough. I have made two different cards using dies and papers from my stash. The only ink I used was on the sentiments.

Card 1 – I just received a shipment of dies, stamps, and embossing folders from Darlene at Dutch Paper Crafts so I had to make a couple of cards for this month’s challenge. I used papers from my paper hard, my Tim Holtz Vagabond Die Machine. The sentiment is from SSS. The adorable Zebra is by Marianne Designs - COL1447  Zebra/Donkey Die Set. The Embossing folder/die is from DF3444  Anja’s Flower Border Embossing Folder with matching Dies (I used the die upside down on the embossed background and cut it down to fit an A2 card).

Card 2 – This card uses die from Memory Box – UNDERWATER COLLAGE Craft Die 99742 and SEAWEED COLLAGE Craft Die 99727, plus Marianne Designs – Elines Tropical fish seahorse col1431. The sentiment is by SSS. Note: I popped everything up using dimensional foam tape to create a 3-D effect.

Crafty Hazelnut’s Christmas Challenge 371 – Quick and Easy

CHNC blog button DT

For this week’s Crafty Hazelnut’s Christmas Challenge, we would like to see a Quick and Easy Card. While my card may look like it would take a while to make it was simply a matter of cutting 3 frames, inking the background, stamping the sentiment and pasting it together. The whole card took me less than 15 minutes. I used Memory Box Die – Debutante Frame and Lamp Post Frame, Tim Holtz’s Oxide Distress Inks, JustRite Re-enforcement die, ribbon, gems, and paper from my stash. The sentiment is from Avery Elle.
