Christmas Card Throwdown

Wednesday, 25 October 2017


Hi there everyone, hope you are having a great day!!!  I made this card this morning to enter into this weeks challenge at Merry Monday Christmas Card Challenge #262 (gifts)
I used a white cardstock for the base and used Tim Holtz Crazy Dog Stamps and also his accessories stamp, and used Faber and Castelle watercolour pencils to colour these images, I also used an old unknown stamp for the gifts, which I use every Christmas, and I used a stamp which I received as a free item with a magazine "Simply Stamping" published by Practical Publishing, It is a set with stamps and an embossing folder by Sheena Douglass, it is a very pretty stamp, and I also used the F & C watercolour pencils to colour the Indian Images on the card, which look like snowflakes, also I used some Pink Stick On gems on the card, these are also unknown supplier, (I got them from a cheap shop), you can find lots of lovely stuff from these shops.   Hope you all like this card, and thanks so much for visiting,Jasann

 Hi there everyone, thanks for visiting today, I made this card to enter into the Merry Monday Christmas Challenge #260 (sketch Challenge) and used white cardstock for the base and shaded the edges with Distress Ink Pad, Evergreen Bough, and used two pieces of christmas paper that I had in my stash, it is pretty old, so I don't remember where it came from, but it is pretty, and I used two pointsettias that were in a free set of papers from Adorable Scorable, which I got with a magazine, but it is so long ago I can't remember which one, I should write the name of the magazines when I get these products, and I used a stamp from Graphic 45 - paper pad, St. Nicholas Collection, I like the Graphic 45 papers, as they are very sturdy and great looking.   Hope you like this card, and thanks again for visiting, Jasann

Hi there, today is another sunny day, hope the weather is good in your place.   I made this card to enter into the Jingle Bells challenge "Embossing around the Christmas Tree",
I used white cardstock for the base card, and an unknown embossing folder and stamp, these were given to me with no packaging. so I don.t , know who the designer or manufacturer are, but I liked them and used them for this card, I shaded the embossing with Memento Ink Pad, Summer Sky, and the deer and sentiment with Ranger Super Fine Embossing Powder in Gold, and the sentiment on the inside with Versa Colour Ink Pad, 20 Turquoise.   The photo does not show the embossing very well , but if you enlarge the picture it should be clearer.    Hope you like it and thanks for visiting today, Jasann

Hi there everyone, hope all is well in your world, I made this card for the Merry Monday Challenge, #258 Put a Penguin on your card. I went through my stash and couldn't find any penguin stamps or images or dies, and so I drew one, hope you like it.  I used Distress Inks with a water brush to paint the penguin and cut a shaped card to make the clouds, also I used KindyGlitz in Chrystaline to colour the hat band and the pompom, also the falling snow, hope you all like it, thanks for visiting, Jasann
