It’s time for our Crafty Awesomeness Challenge at The Crafting Circle.com. This time we could make any type of card so I chose to make another Christmas Card for my pile, which is slowly growing. I better get moving ’cause it will be here before we know it!
I used a pre-made card base from Hobby Lobby. The black and white striped paper is by Canvas Corp. and was a scrap from a previous card. I fell in love with the paper with the old car with the Christmas tree on top and just had to buy it. It’s a single sheet by The Paper Studio and is sold at Hobby Lobby.
I turned this into a shaker card using the “Merri Christmas” Die Circle and matching plastic dome. These are both by Die-Namics by My Favorite Things. I used a single circle punch for the black dots on the paper and put a shaker “flake” on each one. I probably should have dry embossed the card background, but I didn’t think of it in time. The “flakes” are from Hobby Lobby.
I’m looking forward to seeing your entries into the challenge.
For the November Crafty Awesomeness Challenge, I made this cute Thanksgiving Card using a Bugaboo Digital Stamp called Ruby Calendar Month – Thanksgiving, and I’ve colored her with Copic Markers. I’ve also used a little Diamond Glaze on the pie plate and her glasses.
The Corner Dies are a set from “My Paper World.” The papers are from a “Cloud 9 Paper Stack” called “Speciality Papers” and the Kraft Base Paper is from MFT. The Egg Corns are from my yard.
The “Happy Thanksgiving” stamp is from MFT and was part of a Pure Innocence” Stamp Set, but I think it’s been retired.
CHALLENGES I’VE ENTERED:
This is my Design Team Post for The October “Crafty Awesomeness” Monthly Challenge. The adorable image is a digital one from Sasayaki Glitter “Midsummer night’s dream”, which I colored with Copic Markers. It’s available here. I thought it made a perfect Christmas Card.
I used a pre-made card base by Recollections from Michaels. All the patterned papers are from a Christmas Stack that I bought last year at Hobby Lobby and is called “Snow Day” by The Paper Studio.
The small letters are from the Bottle Cap Dies from Die-namics by My Favorite Things and the number and larger letter is by Momenta and was purchased at Hobby Lobby. The “Wonky” Ovals are also from MFT.
I also used my Corner Chomper and some Foam Adhesive Dots to pop my embellishments.
