Crafty Hazelnut’s Christmas Challenge 464 – use some glitter

CHNC blog button DT

This week at CHNCC we are looking for Glitter. I chose to stamp 2 funny little snowmen from Paper Smoochies called Swanky Snowdudes. I coloured them with Copics, then painted white glue on top of the snowmen and added fine glitter. Note: I add a small bit of water to the glue so it spreads evenly. I also used some glittery snowflake stickers and backed the image on cardstock with glitter on it.

Simply Create Too – Challenge #145- AG/NO TWIST

Simply Create Too Challenge Blog

Our first challenge of the New Year is Anything Goes! I made a fun card using a digi by bugaboo, sentiment from Simon Says Stamps,  and a stamped image by Paper Smooches. The flowers and animals were coloured with Copic markers. I used foam tape to add dimension.

Crafty Hazelnut’s Christmas Challenge – January 20 – Use a sentiment

CHNC blog button DT

For this week’s Crafty Hazelnut’s Christmas Challenge we want you to use a sentiment as a feature of your card. For my image, I used a retired Bugaboo Stamp featuring a Reindeer. I coloured him with Copics and fussy cut him out and glued him to the card front. For the sentiment I chose a large die cut from Paper Smooches simply titled Season’s Greetings.

Craftyhazelnut’s Christmas Challenge Extra October 2017

chnc-challenge-extra-dt-button

This challenge will last for the whole month of October 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!

Once again this year, all of these monthly challenges are being generously sponsored by Bugaboo Stamps - a winner will be randomly chosen using random.

Bugaboo Stamps are proud to sponsor this challenge – they are offering 4 digital stamps to the randomly selected winner.

For this month’s card, I selected another Tropical Santa called “Surfing Santa. Unfortunately Bugaboo has since retired the series, and that is why you need to keep checking their website. As new stamps are created, they retire the old ones-heavy sigh.

I started by colouring him bright, festive colours with my Copics. Once done, I fussy cut him out and set him aside. The stamped sentiment is from Paper Smooches. I layered him on Rainbow paper for added colour.

52 {Christmas} Card Throwdown – Theme – Drinks

CCT - Design For BadgeOur current challenge at 52CCC is:

When I am making cards, I will often stamp/colour/die cut duplicates so I can “play” with different arrangements. I like to make a variety of slightly different versions. For this challenge I made 6 Christmas Cards using Simon Says Stamp’s, “Santa at the Beach”. If you ever wondered what Santa does after Christmas – the secret is out. With the challenge being drinks, the stamp set was perfect with Santa and Friend having a cocktail on the beach! I coloured the images with Copic Markers. The sentiments were either from the SSS same set, or Avery Elle’s – Cheers. I also used a Cocktail stamp from Paper Smooches – Free Spirits.

Card 1 – Using torn paper, I was able to create a sandy beach. I fussy cut the images and layered them on the card base. Some were popped up on foam tape for added depth.

Card 2 – using torn paper as ocean waves and sand with fussy cut images. I just made a simply card with Santa enjoying some needed vacation time.
