This week the Design Team at Craftyhazelnut’s Christmas Challenge is looking for a Christmas Project “For a Lady”. My friend loves to drink hot chocolate on a cold evening, so I created a special card that comes with a candy cane and hot cocoa package. The images on the front are from Stampin’ Up, and the inside images are Simon Says Stamps. The front belly band keeps the card closed until it is removed and reveals the surprise.
This week the CRAFT Design Team is challenging you to make a Christmas themed card. For the challenge, I made a wintery scene using Stampin’ Up’s, Polar Bear from Zoo Review Stamp Set. I stamped him on white cardstock and used a B015 Copic marker the draw around him to add some shadow. Next, I cut him out left part of the card stock to remain as snow. I glued him on a patterned paper and used a pre-designed sentiment from Kaiser Craft. In hindsight, I should have edged the polar bear which a black marker so the white card was not noticeable.

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.

This week the C.R.A.F.T. Design Team is challenging you to think of Three of a Kind. For my card, I decided to try out my new Altenew Layering Stamp – Tulip Stamp Set. I love tulips. They are my favorite flowers! With this stamp set, you stamp various coloured inks (Hero Arts/Stampin’ Up) in layers vs hand colouring the image. I used my Misti to help me line up the stamps and I think I did a pretty good job on my first attempt. The grass was created using a Lawn Fawn die.
Each week, we have wonderful prizes that are generously supplied by our sponsors. Please take a moment to check out the fabulous stamps at Rick St. dennis Digital Stamps
Welcome to the 2018 52 Christmas Card Throwdown first challenge of the month and year! Andreja has designed a fun sketch challenge for us and it is never too early to start your Christmas cards! Besides….it is really fun!
For this challenge, I started by printing my digital stamp from A Day for Daisies - Fuzzy Bunnies. I used my Copic markers to add just a hint of colour. Next, I used an embossing folder (retired) from Stampin Up – Northern Flurries. The sentiment Joy is a Penny Black diecut. My card design is a 5 x 7, so I created the background using some cardstock I had on hand. I created a fishtailed banner in a matching blue to place behind the bunnies card and added it to the card front. For the finishing touches, I added a snowflake button and a few gems.
We are running our challenges weekly, so you will have lots of opportunities to join us making cards for your friends and family.
