This week at CHNCC the theme is to use some silver. I made a very simple card. I used a die by Memory Box called Dazzling Snowflake. It cuts a negative snowflake, and I backed it in silver foil paper. The joy sentiment is by SSS. While it is not apparently the white cardstock is actually pearlized and quite pretty.

This week we at 52 CCTC are trying a whole new technique to me. It is called Eraser Technique. For examples of this technique and the instruction check out the Eraser technique (here, here and here). So I started with a blank A2 card and MFT’s Snow Flurry Stencil. I secured the stencil on my craft mat using masking tape. Next, I took a piece of sandpaper and brushed an HB pencil across it making lead dust. I used a clean distress ink sponge tool by Tim Holtz and picked up the dustings and ran the tool across the stencil leaving leaded snowflakes across the card. I stamped Penny Black’s, Snowy on the card. I then erased any snowflakes that showed on the stamped area. The final step was to colour the little snowman with Tombow markers in grey tones. The only colour I used was on his cheeks. The sentiment is from SSS.

This week’s 52 Christmas Card Challenge Throwdown is Choral. For my card, I started by downloading Free Printable music sheets (I did a Google search). Once downloaded, I printed them to fit an A2 card. Next, I distressed the music using Distress Ink. I decided to cut the sheet down further, curl the edges and mount them offset on the page. I added a little choir boy Digi stamp from Pure Innocent. I coloured him with Copic markers. For my final touch I added a few sequins.

For my card this week, I decided to make a 3D pop-up card. I have had this SVG file from The Dreaming Tree for some time and decided it was time to put out my Cricut and make one. I purchased the Tis The Season Pop Up Cards SVG Bundle (it includes 3 separate pop-up card designs) and this particular card is called, Let It Snow Pop Up Card SVG. I had some problems cutting it out. My Cricut didn’t like the card stock I selected, and the pop-up feature was problematic! I preserved and the results were amazing.
I made my card that month using my Cricut Explore Air and a wonderful SVG files from A Little Scrap of Heaven called Jiggle Bell Friends. The files are sold as a bundle and I used the reindeer. All the papers are from my stash. I added highlights with a white gel pen and Copics. The snowflakes are stickers I purchased during Christmas from the Dollar Store. I added a pom-pom nose vs the SVG file one provided. The finished card is 5×7.

This week at Crafty Hazelnut’s Christmas Challenge, we are looking for the added feature of a bell or bells. When I found this adorable “bell” SVG file called, Jingle Bell Pals, by A Little Scrap of Heaven I knew it would be perfect. This is a larger card than I normally make but it was designed to use envelops given to me by the Hallmark rep. The sentiment stamp is from Hero Arts. I used my Cricut Explorer Air to cut out the shapes. I added detail with my white gel pen and shading with my Copic B10. The snowflake sticker was from my stash. Note: This SVG file came with 5 more friends – penguin, Santa, snowman, reindeer, and Mrs. Claus and I will be posting them all in future blogs.

Hello everyone and welcome to Simply Create Too May’s Challenge #149 Anything Goes – No Twist. I am sorry I am late posting but I was on holidays. When it snowed here in Ontario, Canada in April, I booked a Carribean Cruise. My card is from A Little Scrap of Heaven called, Christmas Pickle. It was an SVG digital cutting file that I used with my Cricut Explore Air 2. I used cardstock from my stash and for extra dimension, I added texture to the fur around his hat with an embossing folder and details to the pickle using Copic markers. The Christmas Pickle Story was a free download from the internet (Google Search).
The challenge is open from May 3rd until the 31st,
