Gosh, Christmas and Valentine’s Day just passed, and Mother’s Day and Easter are fast approaching! Our challenge this week is the create a Mother’s Day Card. 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. This card design would also be lovely for a birthday, wedding, anniversary, and more. The sentiment is from Simon Says Stamps.

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.

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.

C.R.A.F.T. Challenge 493 – 29th of November – Sketch

For the last C.R.A.F.T. sketch of 2018, I decided to use some of my flower dies with a simple teacup digi from Dr, Digi’s House of Stamps. I started by printing the digi cup on patterned cardstock. To add dimension, I added a similar tone to add shadow and water to the cup, glue it to the card front and added flowers and leaves to resemble a bouquet of flowers. I added the inked Hello friend sentiments from SSS.

Crafty Hazelnut’s Christmas Challenge 410 – Use some glitter

CHNC blog button DT

The week at Craftyhazelnut’s Christmas Challenge is looking for Glitter this week. I selected an adorable snowman (retired) from MFT. I coloured him with Copic markers, then I “painted” a little white glue over the image then poured some Stickles Diamond Dust Glitter on it. I used a circle die to remove a circle from my SSS woodgrain cardstock, then taped the image behind it. I added a glitter bow and mounted it on the card front. The sentiment is from cardstock by Lawn Fawn.
