This week at Crafty Hazelnut’s Christmas Challenge we are looking for a project theme with something beginning with the letter S. I decided to make a card with a (S)nowman on it. I used a SVG file from Jamie and Jenn Designs called Snowman Window Lever Card.
I added texture to the snowman with an embossing folder. The sticker came with those address labels various charities fundraise with. They are perfect to use as sentiments on cards. Making this card with my Cricut was Easy Peasy.
This week at the Crafty Hazelnut’s Christmas Challenge, we are looking for a card with ribbon or twine. I used a sweet digital stamp by Meljen’s Designs called, “Little Elf’s Cookie.” I coloured him with Copic markers, layered him on patterned paper from my stash and added a ribbon. The sentiment is from Papertrey Ink.
This week at Crafty Hazelnut’s Christmas Challenge, we are looking for a Christmas project using embossing. I chose to do a dry embossing project using an embossing folder. The folder is a retired Stampin’ Up, Northern Flurries, and a retired digi file by From the Heart (Unfortunately this digi file artist passed away and her site has been closed.)
Please join us weekly for Christmas themed inspirations.
Netta from the 52CCT Design Team is inviting us to try a new technique. I have provided some directions on how to do the technique above. I went in a slightly different direction. I used Distress Inks and sponged them on Neenah White Cardstock in various colours. Next, I stamped a bear, bucket of fish, and tree in Versamark ink and embossed in clear powder. Next, I blended Versamark black ink over the cardstock. Finally, I wiped the ink off the embossed images with a paper towel. The bears are from MFT (My Favorite Things POLAR BEAR PALS), the trees (Clearly Besotted LET’S PRANCE) and sentiment by SSS.

This week at Crafty Hazelnut’s Christmas Challenge we are looking for a card for a lady or girl. Everyone female no matter the age loves Hello Kitty. I used a Christmas Hello Kitty cartridge by Cricut for my Circut Explore Air. Isn’t she super cute!

This week at ,52CCT Netta is challenging us to create a card using Copper/Bronze, dark blue and turquoise. I didn’t have Bronze or Copper so I substituted gold. I also used Black and White in the card as they are not colours/neutral. I paper pieced a Christmas tree. Using my Cricut ExploreAir machine and a file from Access I created my card. Note: The SVG file did not have a trunk so I added one by simply adding a square. I also made a template for the card and cut it out so I simply had to add the coloured cuts into the template.

For this week’s Crafty Hazelnut’s Christmas Challenge, I made a card using the O Canada Christmas Paper, Stickers, and Ephemera Set. This set and the previous O Canada sets are perfect for all those Canadian crafters!
I love Christmas and look forward with your entries!
Hello everyone. Our 52CCT DT member, Netta, designed a fabulous sketch to inspire your card making juices. I used a 2 part Joy die set by Sue Wilson to make my card. I used the Joy red backing to represent the red and the gold filigree. I made the background using snowflake stickers I picked up at the Dollar Tree last fall.

This week at Crafty Hazelnut’s Christmas Challenge 449, the Design Team is looking for you to include a reindeer. I have had this stamp/die set from Hero Art from the beginning of my card making. It is called #657780 ‘Holiday Cheer’. I stamped the images using Versafine Black, coloured the deer with Tombow markers, paper pieced the sweaters, and used Christmas papers from my stash.
I am running a month behind for the theme of my card, but it was so cute, I just had to make a late appearance. My card was made to celebrate Canada Day July 1, 2019. Last year I bought this adorable Oh Canada stamp and die set from Photoplay.. I used various patterned paper from their matching paper set, and the Beaver and moose stamp/die. I coloured my characters with Copic markers.
We encourage you to open your patterned paper stash and create!
