52 Christmas Card Throwdown Challenge – 52CCT35-19 – Theme Challenge – Bears

My pick for the theme I picked my favourite subject, bears! If you mix that with Christmas it is even better. I look forward to seeing all your GRRRReat bears this week.
I started with picking Bartholomew is from Whipper Snapper Designs and is adorable! Even his name is adorable, right! I coloured him with Copics, fussy cut him out.  I had this pre-printed perfect sentiment, then I paired it with a map of the north.

52 Christmas Card Throwdown – February 24th, 2018 – Technique – Watercolour

Hello Everyone, Myrna here. This is my final Challenge of the month. The Design Team and I are challenging you to make a card using watercolouring. There are so many options available.  Time to break out your watercolour pencils, pens, liquids, inks, etc and have fun. We look forward to your creations.

For my card, I used an adorable stamp called, “Gilmore” by Whipper Snapper Designs. I stamped him with Momento Ink, and coloured him with Derwent Inktense Watercolour Pencils. The papers and sequins are from my stash.

52 Christmas Card Throwdown – February 10, 2018 – Colour Challenge

52cctc
Hello Everyone. This month I am in charge of selecting all the 52 Christmas Card Throwdown Challenges. Nothing says cold like the blues. I love monochrome cards and challenge you to try to make a card that focuses on using blue tones. Use as many or few as you want. You can use inks, watercolours, markers, pencils, colour stock etc. to show blue. For my card, I used a fun stamp by Whipper Snapper called, “A Polar Bear Party.” I stamped my image then coloured it with various Copic Blue/Blue Green markers. I also added a little Salty Ocean Oxide ink around the outside edge. I backed the image on white cardstock that I blended Salty Ocean, Broken China, and Peacock Feathers. I flicked on some water droplets for that little extra. \finally I backed the card front on blue cardstock. The sentiment is from Sweet n Sassy – A Cardinal’s Christmas.

130 Christmas Cards for Seniors!

christmas-images-1

Every year I make 130 Christmas cards for the Belmont Long Term Care Home. It is my way of paying it forward for the fabulous care they provided my mother. I love to colour while watch TV so I will stamp numerous images and hand colour them with Copic Markers, Zig Water Colour Brushes, Derwent Inktenses Pencils, or Distress inks. Once I get a number completed, I then sit down and start to assemble my cards. No two cards are the same, While I may use the same image, I colour them differently, use a different card format, different card stock, etc. I also make Fall/Thanksgiving/Halloween, Easter/Spring, Valentine’s Day, Remembrance Day (for the veterans), plus birthday cards. It keeps me busy, and I really enjoy it. I also make cards for myself and friends. I dropped the cards off for distribution on December 1, 2016.

SidebarglorykleinerThe GoC Design team is challenging you to make a card using two or more patterned papers. I used two patterned papers from my stash and layered them with my image. The snowman stamp is called, “Gilmor” by Whipper Snapper Designs. I hand coloured him using Copic markers, then fussy cut him out. The sentiment is a pre-printed vellum tag by DCWV.
