Today I’m playing along with some challenges with Christmas as their theme and a couple of others where it isn’t but I’ve interpreted them that way.
First up is a card for:
- CAS Christmas Challenge – Dogs and/or Cats
- 2 Crafty Critter Crazies #47 – Anything Goes
- Craft Challenge #587 – Christmas
I have a stash of pre-coloured and cut out critters and choose a Tim Holtz ‘Crazy Dog’ for this card. I added a felt Santa hat on my dog, stencilled a portion of the background and added a sentiment I created on my computer.
Next up is a card for:
- Little Red Wagon #589 – Tag You’re It
- 52 Christmas Card Throwdown – Tags on Cards
- As You Like It – Rubber, Clear or Digi?
I have recently discovered an amazing digi artist called Rachelle Anne Miller. She’s an Aussie and created this adorable Koala ornament which is 1 of a trio of Christmas Ornaments. What I love about digi images is that you can seperate them, resize them and print them on what ever medium you want. I printed this guy and then coloured him with my AI markers and cut him into a tag shape. I wanted a little something for the background but wanted it to be subtle so used a peice of DSP from Stampin Up called ‘Plush Poinsettia’.
Next is a card for:
- Just Add Ink #542
- Colour Hues #12 – Peach and Green
- Merry Little Christmas Challenge #31 – February Anything Goes
I love the idea of using non-traditional colours for a Christmas card. I used a Stampin Up brick wall embossing folder, the loghtly sponged some SU Petal Pink ink an the corner and added a few die cut Christmas trees and a sentiment from the Ton ‘Christmas Strips’.
Lastly is a card for the Tic-Tac-Toe Challenge #101.
I chose the top horizontal row – cute critter, square amd vellum. Again I went to my pre-coloured critters and chose a cute little piggy and added a felt Santa hat. I embossed the vellun with the Stampin Up ‘Old world paper’ EF, added the piggy and a sentiment I made on my computer and my card was done.
Well, that’s it for today. I’m happy I’ve added 4 more cards to my Christmas card stash. Thanks for stopping by for a look. Enjoy the rest of your weekend.
