This challenge will last for the whole month of December 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.

I love the crow/chicken digis on Bugaboo’s Site. The great thing about digis is you can resize them, flip them, remove and add things. In this case, I made the fall digi into a Christmas one. The stamp is called, “Crow”, but I oted to make him a chicken. Once I coloured him, for drama I debossed it with a retired Stampin Up embosing folder called Northern Lights. The final step was to assemble my card and stamp a sentiment from Penny Black’s Festive Snippets and add a few gems..

I started by stamping the little girl by MFT, called, “Doodle Garden, You’re the Coolest.” I stamped then coloured her with Copic. Next I cut her out and rounded the corners. The final step was to assemble my card and stamp a sentiment from Penny Black’s Festive Snippets, and add some snowflake sequins and pom poms from my stash.

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.

For this month’s card, I have revealed exactly what Santa does while on his Vay-Kay! I love this series of Tropical Santa’s that Bugaboo Stamps Created. This one is called TropSantaSuntan. They have 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. Next I die cut a sun using the Sun and Moon Die-namics from MFT. The waves were created with a die from Marianne’s Designs called, “Eline’s Whale.” The final step was to assemble my card and stamp a sentiment from Penny Black’s Festive Snippets.

C.R.A.F.T. – Challenge 428 – 10th of August – Anything Goes

DTbadge

For this week’s challenge, I decided to try out a couple of dies I have. I started by embossing the background with one of my stash folders. Next I die cut a trellis (by Impression Obsessions) out in black and a garden trellis (by Poppy Stamps)out in white. I liked the different effects of each so I decided on making 2 cards vs one. Next I made 4 purple cone-flowers/stem and leaves made with Elizabeth Craft designs. The sentiment is by Penny Black. I added ribbon and pre-made kraft butterflies from my stash
