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 361 – Inspired by a Book

DTbadgeThis week we got our inspiration from a book. I was just reading, “MOLTO GUSTO BY MARIO BATALI’”, and thought The Paper Shelter’s, “Pizza Chef” was perfect for my card design. I started the card by die cutting an “oven” mitt using the largest die from Sellbinder’s -Shapeabilities – Nested Mittens. Next I printed, coloured (with Copics) . and fussy cut out the chef and pizza. Final step was the assemble the card. On the inside I computer generated the sentiment, “I stole a Pizza of my heart!”

C.R.A.F.T. Challenge 356 – 24th of March – Add some Bling

DTbadgeYou just have to love a challenge that requires adding “Bling”. I have a tendency to hoard my bling, so it is fun to be challenged to use some! I found this wonderful digi stamp by A Day for Daisies called 40s View. Those wonderful earrings were perfect to embellish! I started by colouring the beautiful lady with Copics. I then, using an oval die, cut her out and set aside. Next using some mirror-like foil card stock cut out a filigree oval by Spellbinders  Nestabilities – Oval Regalia Decorative Elements Dies – S4-492. I layered the pieces on my card base, then added the “bling” gemstones.

Simply Create Too – Challenge 93 – IT’S A SPECIAL OCCASION


Our current challenge at Simply Create Too is “IT’S A SPECIAL OCCASION”. What could be more Special than a new baby? I made this card in anticipation of a new baby girl my BBF’s daughter is having. I am the honourary G-ma and this will be baby number 2 to a very special couple.

I used a stamp by A Day for Daisies called Bundle of Fairy Love. I coloured the image with Copic markers, then added Wink of Stella to the wings. Next I die cut the image and background using Spellbinders - A2 Tranquil Moments, Opulent Ovals, Moroccan Accents. I finished it off with some gems from my stash.
