This week’s CHNCC Challenge is to use non-traditional colours. I picked purple. I love “Snowy” by Penny Black. The stamp is called, “Naughty or Nice?”. I coloured the characters with Copics and used Kaisercraft papers from my stash.

52 Christmas Card Throwdown – June 2nd – sketch CCT21-18

DT Badge

It is the first challenge of the month here at the 52 Christmas Card Throwdown and that means it is our Sketch challenge. For my card, I am using my favourite Christmas stamp called snowy by Penny Black. I coloured him with my Copic markers and arranged him on my card in place of the oval. I have included a ribbon band and a fishtail banner. All the papers are from my stash.


I look forward to seeing all your entries. Please join us each week!

52 Christmas Card Throwdown – Sketch Challenge – May 5, 2018

It is Sketch week at 52 Christmas Card Throwdown. The Design Team have made various card samples to inspire you. For my card, I used a fun little mouse by Penny Black called Jolly Friends. I coloured the mouse with my Copics, die cut him out with MFT Oval Stax, and hand cut the background to fit the sketch.

CHNC blog button DT

Our challenge this week at CHCC is to add some gold. My card did not photograph that well because of the reflective nature of the materials but is really pretty in real life. I die cut my deer and trees from gold foil cardstock and glued it on a night sky background I created with my Zig Kuretake Gansai Tambi 24 COLOR SET and Zig Kuretake Gansai Tambi STARRY COLORS Set of 6. Sentiment die is from Avery Elle, and Deer/Tree die from Penny Black.

Crafty Hazelnut’s Christmas Challenge – January 27 – No sentiment

CHNC blog button DT

For this week’s challenge, we are looking for a Christmas Card with no sentiment on the card front. You are welcome to put your sentiment on the inside of the card. For my card, I tried a painterly effect using Penny Black’s, called Scarlet Majesty. I used Momento watercolour markers and Distress ink on watercolour paper to create the effect. I would refer you to the talented Penny Black Design Team member, Micheline “Mimi” Jourdain to see her demo this technique. She is an amazing artist!


I hope you will join us!
