Crafty Hazelnut’s Christmas Challenge – 24 March 2018 – Inspired by a Christmas song or carol

CHNC blog button DT

This week at Crafty Hazelnut’s Christmas Challenge we are looking for a Christmas project inspired by a Christmas Song or Carol. I went a little rogue this week and based my Card on a modified version of Justin Timberlake’s “Bringing Sexy Back” to “Bringing Sexy Sweaters Back”. I used a fabulous stamp set by Simon Says Stamps – Ugly Sweaters and Sweater Words. I coloured the images with my Spectrum Noir Markers and Zig Wink of Stella Clear. I framed my image with some candy cane striped paper from my stash.

This week at Crafty Hazelnut’s Christmas Challenge we are looking for something “CUTE”. The background paper inspired my card. I used an adorable digi image from Hambo Stamps called, “Bailey Christmas.” I coloured my little dog with Copic markers, fussy cut him out, and popped him up on the cardstock using Stampin’ Up Dimensionals. The “For you” sentiment is from Stampin’ Up and “Holiday Wishes” is from Stampin’ Up.

52 {Christmas} Card Throwdown – Stash Challenge

CCT - Design For Badge

For our current challenge we ask you to design a card using wood or canvas in your card. For my card I used a wooden snowflake that I purchased at Michael’s. I also used a wood patterned card stock as the card background. The bear is from MFT – BB Polar Pals, coloured with Copics. The sentiment die cut is by SSS.

52 {Christmas} Card Throwdown – Theme Challenge

 CCT - Design For Badge

When I saw the Theme of this challenge, I thought of the skating bear from MFT – Polar Bear Pals. The stamps also show the joys of ice fishing and playing outdoors.

One Stamp-Eighteen Cards – Featuring BB Polar Bear Pals by MFT

I was asked to create 18 Personal Christmas Cards that depicted “Canada”. I immediately thought of Polar Bears, and My Favorite Things –  BB Polar Bear Pals stamps and dies were Perfect! Well you know me, I can’t create the same card twice (well I can, but this is way more fun) so I created 18 different cards using the same stamp set. Here is the results!

When creating the cards, I used Copics, Derwent Inktense Pencils, Distress Inks to colour. I also used various dies, stamps, and punches from Memory Box, MFT Dienamics, Stampin’ Up, Spellbinders, Lawn Fawn dies, SSS, and Penny Black. Plus: papers, card stock, gems, sequins, stickers, ribbon and twine for my stash. If you have specific questions about the products I used feel free to contact me.

C.R.A.F.T. – Challenge 427 – 3rd of August – Colour Combo

This week we challenge you to make a card using the colors we posted. I decided I would try to match the inks using peg stamps and creating my own images. I made more than one image and used a number of the colors from the challenge. The stamps I used are from Card-io Clear Stamp sets and Majestix Peg Stamps for Papercraft. I used my Hero Art Ink pads, and the sentiments are from Hero Arts and Simon Says Stamps.
