52 Christmas Card Throwdown – Challenge 52CCT-32-18 Punny Holiday

DT Badge

The week the Design Team at 52CCT is looking for a punny holiday/funny holiday card. I have used this stamp in the past, but I just love Penny Black’s Snowy the snowman, and if you add a dog you get an extra bonus. I coloured the image with Copic markers. I cut out each scene using MFT stitched squares/rectangles. The sentiment is from SSS.

This week the Design Team at Craftyhazelnut’s Christmas Challenge is looking for a Christmas Project “For a Lady”. My friend loves to drink hot chocolate on a cold evening, so I created a special card that comes with a candy cane and hot cocoa package. The images on the front are from Stampin’ Up, and the inside images are Simon Says Stamps. The front belly band keeps the card closed until it is removed and reveals the surprise.

Simply Create Too – Challenge #141 – 8/3 to /8/31 – Create a Bookmark

1 Simply Create 2 DT

 

Our monthly challenge at Simply Create Too! is to create a bookmark. Well, I couldn’t just make a bookmark, I had to make a card with a bookmark, then a separate bookmark to match the same theme. For my project, I used stamps from Honey Bee Stamps - UNDER THE SEA and ZEN OCEAN. I started by stamping the Zen Sea with Versamark Ink, adding black embossing powder then colouring it with TH Oxide Inks. The mermaids were embossed with gold embossing powder and coloured with Copic markers. Next I fussy cut them out and set aside. I used an older die and stamp set from Our Daily Bread to make the bookmarks (retired). I also used a you sentiment from SSS and Celebrate die set from Hero Arts.

Crafty Hazelnut’s Christmas Challenge 396 – For a man or boy

CHNC blog button DT

The CHNCCC is to make a card for a man or boy. What could be better than polar bears skating, fishing, or just hanging around! I used MFT - BB Polar Bear Pals. I absolutely adore this set of stamps, and it is so hard to select just one bear, so I used them all! I coloured them with Copic markers and added an embossed sentiment from SSS – Small Folded Banners Holiday set.
