C.R.A.F.T. – Challenge 402 – 9th of February – Recycling

DTbadgeThis week we challenge you to recycle something on your project. I like to try to recycle Christmas cards. For this challenge, I used Christmas cards, ribbon from gifts, and gift wrap. I used a funny little Beaver stamp called, “digi9802 Fresh Cut Tree Digi-Stamp” by QKR Stampede for cards 1-3, and Card 4, “Cocoa and Friends”, by Whimsey Doodle. I coloured the images with Copics, fussy cut them out and layered them on recycled Christmas cards, wrap and ribbon.

The Glory of Christmas – Challenge 66 – Fun/Humorous

SidebarglorykleinerThe Glory of Christmas Challenge 66 wants you to make a humorous or fun card. That card that makes you smile! I chose “Peas On Earth” by Whimsey Doodle. I coloured the image with Copics. I added a little stickles to the hats. I layered it on various papers from my stash. I also used some metallic thread for accent.

humourOur challenge runs from August 23 until September 4th. Please join us!

The Glory of Christmas – Challenge 50 – Non-Traditional Colours


Can you believe Christmas 2014 is just over, and we are looking at making cards for Christmas 2015. Mind you, this is a great time of the year to buy your Christmas supplies as they all on sale!

I created the Perfect Christmas Helper using Whimsey Doodles – Deer Friend. (Funny thing…I bought my G-son a hat just like this when I was on my cruise to Alaska.) I love his larger than life candy cane. I coloured the little gent with Copics and added glossy accents to his Candy Cane. The brown tone papers are from my stash.

Christmas Baking Part 2 – Kraft vs White

I decided to try to make this card in a pencil coloured, kraft card stock version vs a Copic coloured white card stock one. Both cards are similar yet have a completely different feel. I used 2 stamps from Whimsey Doodle – Ginger and Cup, and Cocoa with Friends. The sentiment is from SSS. I used a snowflake embossing folder, twine and plaid paper for the background.

Christmas Baking Part 4 – Easel Card

For my fourth and final card of the gingerbread series, I made an easel card. I used the Ginger and Cup Stamp from Whimsey Doodle. I printed him on both dark kraft and white card stock. I coloured the mug with Copics, cut it out, them layered it on the kraft. I used stickles for the “icing” and fussy cut the little Ginny out. Next I cut a 5.5 x 5.5 card. I layered a new Christmas patterned paper by Kaiser that looks like a floured wooden counter top. I scored a diagonal fold and attached the cookie. I decorated the inside of the card with the same paper, and added some hand coloured cookies from Tremendous Treats: Christmas Stamp Set by PI.  To hold the card open, I used 2 gingerbread brads. The sentiment is from SSS.
