52 Christmas Card Challenge – 52CCT20-19 – May 25th – Technique: Eraser

This week we at 52 CCTC are trying a whole new technique to me. It is called Eraser Technique. For examples of this technique and the instruction check out the Eraser technique (herehere and here). So I started with a blank A2 card and MFT’s Snow Flurry Stencil. I secured the stencil on my craft matt using masking tape. Next, I took a piece of sandpaper and brushed an HB pencil across it making lead dust. I used a clean distress ink sponge tool by Tim Holtz and picked up the dustings and ran the tool across the stencil leaving leaded snowflakes across the card. I stamped Penny Black’s, Snowy on the card. I then erased any snowflakes that showed on the stamped area. The final step was to colour the little snowman with Tombow markers in grey tones. The only colour I used was on his cheeks. The sentiment is from SSS.

Crafty Hazelnut’s Christmas Challenge 439 – use some silver

CHNC blog button DT

This week at CHNCC the theme is to use some silver. I made a very simple card. I used a die by Memory Box called Dazzling Snowflake. It cuts a negative snowflake, and I backed it in silver foil paper. The joy sentiment is by SSS. While it is not apparently the white cardstock is actually pearlized and quite pretty.

I decided to dust off my Cricut machine and using a fabulous Cascade Card design from Dreaming Tree, I created a Mother’s Day card.

52 Christmas Card Throwdown – technique/stash – Recycling 52CCT8-19

Each month a member of the 52CCC Design Team chooses the challenges for the month. This month Allison chose the challenges. Her pick this month was Recycling. I had a piece of Christmas paper in my stash that I thought I could add my own twist to. Where the paper actually had a few poinsettias, I used an older Spellbinder Poinsettias Die and cut out the flowers from some old red and green envelopes I had in my stash. For the flower centres, I used some half pearls from an old card that I had kicking around. The sentiment was from SSS.
