C-Tree Snippet

SNIPPETS is the theme for our January challenge at Christmas Craft Creations!   So pull out those scraps of paper, or whatever scraps you can find in your craft room and start creating!

Our challenge will run until February 7th so make sure to upload your creation by then for your chance to win a special prize.

Well, first off I have to admit the card in person looks much better than the pic above!  

To create the tree, I started with using my Cricut Joy to cut out the triangles and used a square diecut for the tree trunk.  I gathered scraps of cardstock then used Sentiment Strip Dies by Pink & Main to create the rows.  

Next I stamped the sentiment from the Typewriter Holiday Sentiments collection by Memory Box and then applied foam squares to the back of the tree and placed the tree in the centre of the card.  

The tree was decorated with sequins and the star was created using glitter card stock snippet and diecut Inside Out Stitched Starts by MFT.  I sprayed the card with Antique Bronze Mica and  Gold Sheer Shimmer.

Happy New Year 2023

A new month AND a New Year brings a new challenge at Get Creative Challenges!

Our theme this month is Something New - let your creativity flow with this theme, maybe it's a new year, new stamp that you got for Christmas, the possiblities are endless!

We have moved to a JUST FOR FUN challenge and I hope you will continue to play along so you have a chance to proudly display our Winners Badge or Top 3 Badge.

I thought I would bring in the new year with a Happy New Year card.  I used the stamp set and die cuts, Prosecco-Ho-Ho by Avery Elle to create my card.  I embossed the images on black and gold cardstock and on the gold bottle, I stamped a second black image just to use the label.  Added a bow and we're good to go!

I put together patterned papers that were in my stash and the tags were created using Nested Round Tags by Maker's Movement. The sentiment is from the Says it all again set by Clearly Besotted.

Thanks so much for stopping by and make sure you hop over to Get Creative Challenges for some inspiration from our fabulous Design Team!

Anything Goes is the theme to start the New Year off at Creative Knockouts!

Our challenge will run until January 18th so make sure to upload your creation by then for your chance to win a special prize from our fabulous sponsor Sheepski Designs!

The image I used is Winter Warm-up and I used Copic markers to color her up.  I applied Simply White Nuvo Crystal Drops to the trim for a little dimension and sequins here and there for a splash of color.  The papers are from the Feelin' Frosty Collection by Simple Stories and the sentiment comes from the 
Nordic Christmas stamp set by Simply Made Crafts that was from Issue 113 of Creative Stamping Magazine.
