April Christmas Card Challenge at SCS

These three cards are for the April Christmas Card Challenge at SCS.  The wreath is a digi by Isabella's Scrapbook.  It's one of the first digis I purchased.  I still love it!  The pink card is done with a digi available at Whimsy.  Pink is one of my favorite colors for a Christmas card, as unusual as that seems.  I used this image for several cards last Christmas.  The Baby Jesus is from Karen's Doodles.  All images were colored with Copics on Neenah paper.  I have been on a Stickles kick lately;  I put stickles on all three cards.  Too bad they don't show up better in pictures.  If anyone is still interested in joining this challenge it can be joined at any time.  I signed up to do six cards every month until December.  So far, so good.  The fellow crafters doing this challenge are a wonderful group of people.  I get lots of feedback, which of course I greatly appreciate!

Christmas Fairy

This is my fifth Christmas card for the March CCC at Splitcoast.  This challenge is really keeping me on track to get my cards done.  I like to make every card different so making them at this pace allows me to do that.  This image is from Mo's Digital Pencil.  I colored her with Copics.  The dots on her dress were done with a white pen.  The snow globe is covered with Crystal Effects so it actually gave it a 3D effect.  It's not obvious in the photo, but her petticoat layers are edged with stickles.

For Baby

My daughtner needed a card for a baby shower and I thought this image would be ideal. The image is from the Simply Adorable collection by Sugar Nellie.  I've purchased quite a few of their digis and they are all beautiful. This little tike was colored with copics and I used a Martha Stewart punch for the lattice.  I can't wait to make the girl version.  I entered this in Scrap Creations Challenge Anything Goes, Creative Craft Challenges and in Digi Doodle Shop's Anything Goes.

Birthday Card for Aunt Joan

I made this card for one of my favorite aunts.  She has always been an animal lover.  She is the one in the family that always remembers every birthday and special occasion.  I saw someone use this digi on SCS.  I fell in love with it.  The digi is from Angels Landing.  The really nice thing is that they have coloring instructions.  The instructions were amazingly helpful.  I am entering this in Digi Doodle Shops Anything Goes Challenge, 2 Sisters Challenge #31 Furry Friends, Creative Craft Challenges and Scrap Creations Challenge Anything Goes.

March Christmas Card Challenge

These are the first four cards for the March Christmas Card Challenge at SCS.  The Santa and reindeer digis were both freebies.  Unfortunately, I can't recall where I got them.  They were both colored with copics.

The two quilt design cards were made following a tutorial at SCS.  I used a 3/4" punch to make the squares.  I found you need a pretty strong adhesive to hold the squares on well.  I coated my entire graph paper with double sided adhesive and then laid the shapes on.  That seemed to work relatively well.  I plan on doing quite a few different patterns for Christmas.  Two more cards to go and I'll be done with March!

Adding to my Stash of Birthday Cards

The lighthouse cards were "quickies."  I found the images on Etsy.  Since I absolutely love lighthouses and stained glass  the com...
