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.

For this challenge I did a little twist, vs being inspired by a movie, I was inspired about going to the movies! I used an adorable little girl stamp by Lacy Sunshine Stamps called Rory’s Movie Snacks. I coloured her with Spectrum Noir Markers. I added glossy accents to her eye. I made two versions of the card to show that simple design layouts can change the feel of the card.

For my card for the Recipe Challenge, I used:
1) an image from Digital Delights called Christmas Bongo
2) two paper ribbon trims from KaiserCraft
3) three patterned papers from my stash
4) gold button I created from MFT Die
I hand coloured the dog using my Spectrum Noir markers. I also printed the image on three patterned papers which I paper pieced for his scarf, hat, and Christmas stocking. I Added a button as the hat’s pom-pom. I fussy cut out the dog and layered him on various papers from my stash. The sentiment was computer generated.

We tend to make more female cards than male cards. With Father’s Day coming we are challenging you to make either a Father’s Day card, or a card more suitable for a guy. For this challenge I used an adorable stamp by Dr. Digi’s House of Stamps called, Summer Holidays.” I coloured the image using my Spectrum Noir markers. I fussy cut him out and put him aside. Next using a retired map background stamp by JustRite I stamped a piece of 4.25 x 5.5 white and kraft card stock. I coloured the backgrounds with Distress Inks. I made one card suitable for a Happy Retirement card and the other to wish someone a great holiday.

We are half way through May and all the gardens are running late. While we had a mild winter it was really long! So creating a Christmas card now seems very appropriate! For this week’s challenge, I selected an adorable puppy stamp by Pink Gem Designs called, “Christmas Charlie.” I coloured the puppy using Spectrum Noir markers. I added a little clear Wink of Stella to his hat and scarf, glossy accents to his eyes and nose, and Stickles to his hat’s pom-pom. For the background, I used Tim Holtz’s Sweater embossing folder by Sizzix because the “knit” patterns of the scarf/hat matched.
