For this week’s Craftyhazelnut’s Christmas Challenge, we are asking you to design a Christmas for a child. Every kid loves animals and I thought the fun stamp designed by Kristina Werner from SSS called FURRY CHRISTMAS Friends Pets sss101204. I coloured it with Copics, added a little Stickles and glued it on Christmas cardstock from my stash.

This week at CRAFT, we challenge you to make a project using a charm. For my card, I used a sweet digi image called,”Spring Ladybug” by StarStampz. I coloured her using my Copic markers, cut the image out with a circle die from MFT, added a hello sentiment die cut from SSS, and finished it off adding two wooden ladybug charms from my stash.

Simply Create Too – Challenge 137 – Use Diecuts

1 Simply Create 2 DT

This month the Simply Create Too Design Team Challenge is to make a Card using Diecuts. I love die cuts. I have invested a little fortune in dies and don’t use them nearly enough. I have made two different cards using dies and papers from my stash. The only ink I used was on the sentiments.

Card 1 – I just received a shipment of dies, stamps, and embossing folders from Darlene at Dutch Paper Crafts so I had to make a couple of cards for this month’s challenge. I used papers from my paper hard, my Tim Holtz Vagabond Die Machine. The sentiment is from SSS. The adorable Zebra is by Marianne Designs - COL1447  Zebra/Donkey Die Set. The Embossing folder/die is from DF3444  Anja’s Flower Border Embossing Folder with matching Dies (I used the die upside down on the embossed background and cut it down to fit an A2 card).

Card 2 – This card uses die from Memory Box – UNDERWATER COLLAGE Craft Die 99742 and SEAWEED COLLAGE Craft Die 99727, plus Marianne Designs – Elines Tropical fish seahorse col1431. The sentiment is by SSS. Note: I popped everything up using dimensional foam tape to create a 3-D effect.

For the CRAFT Challenge 261, we are looking for a Shaped Card. I used a SVG file from The Cutting Cafe and my Cricut Explore Air called Teacup Card Set. This set includes 2 different teapot designs, plus envelopes. If you don’t own a Silhouette, Cricut, Brother cutting machine, no worries because the Cutting Cafe also includes the template pattern that allows you to manual cut out the card. I also added a flower I created using one of my dies from Marianne Designs, The sentiment id from SSS.
