Crafty Hazelnut’s Christmas Challenge 395 – Use some red

CHNC blog button DT

The CHNCCC is to make a card using some Red. I love this little digis called Ginger and Cup by Whimsey Doodle. He is so adorable. I made a large Card 5″ x 7″. I added stickles to make the frosting look real, paper pieced the mug and candy cane, then coloured them with Copics. The sentiment is a sticker from my stash.

52 Christmas Card Throwdown – July 14th, 2018 – colours Black and (Gold or Silver)

Grab our button for your blog

This month I am in charge of selecting all the challenges. For the colour challenge, I have chosen Black and either Gold or Silver! I made a simple card using die-cuts and dry embossing. I started with die-cutting out the Christmas tree. This die is by Creative Expressions Festive Collection – Christmas Tree Greetings Die Set by Sue Wilson CED3017. I cut it out from gold foil paper. Next, I die cut an oval from the leftover foiled paper and put that through my Big Shot using a Tim Holtz Snowflake texture fade embossing folder. Using the same embossing folder, I debossed the front of my card. The final set was to glue everything together.

CHNC blog button DT

The CHNCCC is to make a card using some ribbon or twine. I made a card using the Christmas Tree Greeting die by Creative Expressions. I die-cut it from black cardstock, glued it on an oval die-cut from gold fold cardstock, then pasted it on my dry embossed (folder by Tim Holtz) black cardstock and finally on my card front. Of course, I added a ribbon and bow to complete the theme!

Simply Create Too – Challenge 139 – For a Male

1 Simply Create 2 DT

This month’s challenge falls into Father’s Day. While you do not need to create a Father’s Day card, it must for suitable for a male. I created an adorable little workbench fold out card that will fit easily into an A2 envelope. I got my inspiration from 2 talented ladies on YouTube (links are at the bottom of my blog). I started with cutting out the pattern in black cardstock. I have numerous suitable dies cuts of tools, papers, stamps, embossing folders, etc. Next, I die the pegboard for the back wall of the bench, embossed Aluminium tape for the side walls, cut to fit SSS pre-embossed woodgrain craft paper for the front of the counter, then added the various tools and signs.

Simply Create Too – Challenge 137 – Use Diecuts

1 Simply Create 2 DT

This month the Simply Create Too Design Team Challenge is to make a Card using Diecuts. I love die cuts. I have invested a little fortune in dies and don’t use them nearly enough. I have made two different cards using dies and papers from my stash. The only ink I used was on the sentiments.

Card 1 – I just received a shipment of dies, stamps, and embossing folders from Darlene at Dutch Paper Crafts so I had to make a couple of cards for this month’s challenge. I used papers from my paper hard, my Tim Holtz Vagabond Die Machine. The sentiment is from SSS. The adorable Zebra is by Marianne Designs - COL1447  Zebra/Donkey Die Set. The Embossing folder/die is from DF3444  Anja’s Flower Border Embossing Folder with matching Dies (I used the die upside down on the embossed background and cut it down to fit an A2 card).

Card 2 – This card uses die from Memory Box – UNDERWATER COLLAGE Craft Die 99742 and SEAWEED COLLAGE Craft Die 99727, plus Marianne Designs – Elines Tropical fish seahorse col1431. The sentiment is by SSS. Note: I popped everything up using dimensional foam tape to create a 3-D effect.
