52 Christmas Card Throwdown Challenge – 52CCT40-19 – Technique Challenge – Smooshing

The month’s Technique Challenge at 52 Christmas Card Throwdown is called Smooshing. I used 2 die sets, one by Spellbinders and the other for Creative Expressions. I used Distress Ink for the technique. Vs me trying to explain the technique, I would refer you to a couple of masters of the technique. Check out technique below:

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.

52 Christmas Card Throwdown – Challenge 52CCT 30-18 Sketch

DT Badge

This week at 52 Christmas Card Challenge, the Design Team is looking for a card based on our Sketch. I created my card with my new dies from Creative Expressions – Build a Snowman and Let it Snow. I started by die cutting all the pieces I wanted for my card, then arranged the design. I added ink around the outside of the center piece die by Spellbinders, arranged my snowman and lantern and added the sentiment.

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.
