Christmas the last stretch!

The sponsor for the CRAFT challenge #622 is Colour of Love and the theme is Christmas. Each week we invite you to join us at Trimmies Craft Challenge going with the theme.

The image has been coloured with Chameleon pens. With the tree I wanted some variation in colour so I’ve added glitter to every other layer. In each of the 2 corners I added a snowflake corner stamp and some word stamps to help frame the image. Then I inked with the Iced Spruce and stamped with the snowflake stamp on the base card.

So here’s a summary of the materials used to make the card:

  • White 5.5×6.5” 300gsm base card
  • Digital image
  • “Iced Spruce” distress oxide ink
  • Chameleon pens (NU2, NU00, GR1, NU3, PK3, BR1, BG3, WG3, NG4, BG4, BL3)
  • Nuvo Glitter drops (Silver Moondust, Spring Frost)
  • Silver Star Gelly Roll pen

Peggy the Penguin

The sponsor for the CRAFT challenge #619 is JMC Designs and the theme is winter. Each week we invite you to join us at Trimmies Craft Challenge going with the theme.

So here’s a summary of the materials:

  • White 300gsm A4 sheet cut, scored and folded to make a base card
  • JMC digital image “Peggy” from the Arctic Adventures collection
  • Die cut stamped sentiment
  • Tacky glue
  • White acrylic paint
  • Paper sheet from the Paper Tree, cut to shorten and overlay
  • ice Spruce ditresss oxide ink
  • Snowflake stamp
  • Chameleon pens (RD2, RD4, YO3, CG9)

I coloured my sweet little penguin “Peggy”with Chameleon pens and cut her out on my scan n cut machine.

I then took the paper sheet from a The Paper Tree paper pad and cut it and then fussy cut around the items at the bottom of the sheet so that it could overlaid.

The stars were a little bit bold so I chose to cover the top part of the paper with a thin coat of white acrylic to knock back the colour slightly.

After layering up the papers I stamped some snowflakes in Iced Spruce Distress Oxide and used this to also ink around the edge before mounting it onto a base card. I added the penguin, a sentiment and a snowflake.

Thank you for stopping by. Please leave a comment.
