THIS WEEK'S CHALLENGE IS:
It's Beginning to Look a lot Like Christmas
Show us Your Christmas Projects! 


Our Special Guest Designer this week is:

 For as long as I can remember, I have been interested in crafting of some sort or another, hence the name Craftyhazelnut! As a child I was often ill and off school, so my time was often taken up with some form of crafting – embroidery, knitting, sketching and anything that involved cutting and sticking. As an adult, for a few years, with work commitments, etc., crafty things fell into the background a bit, but until fairly recently I always had some knitting, crocheting or cross stitching on the go.
 Cross stitching is how I got into card making, then I started to produce cards on the computer and then papercrafting itself about twelve years ago, mainly card making, but I also do some scrapbooking, altering etc.
 About 18 years ago, I early retired from teaching because of ill-health. Crafting is such a good way of relaxing and trying to forget about the aches and pains! I find that entering challenges keeps me up to date with trying new things that perhaps I wouldn’t otherwise try. I sell cards to raise money for charities – this includes Christmas cards, so I need to make a lot throughout the year, which is why I started my own Christmas challenge blog.

Here is Hazel's Card Showcasing:   

 Please Stop By and Leave Hazel some Love!

Rabbit

First I did embossed the background called scalloped & loop ribbon distress ink using spun sugar all over the background. I found image of rabbit which you find here. I decided using distress marker pens for change to colour my image and then I cut out using spellbinding called label four. I want to put flower on so I use sizzix framelit & stamps then put pink ribbon on theistic the flowers on and finally added gems. Nice card for the little girl.

Snowy Cabin ...



Today's card features the lovely Snowy Cabin [13807]. I used the red rubber version for today's card. I stamped and embossed the image, then colored the scene with Copic Markers and Distress Inks, added Stickles, and Liquid Pearls to represent smoke coming out of the chimney. Once this was all dry I layered the design on top off different sized cardstock, and then onto the base.

The Snowy Cabin [13807] is available in red rubber and digital format, and you can find them in the QKR Store here.




You still have a chance to win this adorable Santa Checking his List Twice Digital Stamp, and 5 Digital Stamps of your choice. Head on over to QKR Stampede New Release Blog Hop for all the details. 




Until next time ... Enjoy!

Bright Blue Ornaments


Deb here with a quick and simple Christmas card idea. This card features digi15706 Christmas Border. It's a perfect image to feature in a frame cut and embossed with Spellbinder rectangles.

I colored the ornaments with Copics and added a bit of bling with micro-fine glitter (which is hard to see here). I used the Scor-Pall to add some detail toward the bottom of the card. A couple strips of scrap ribbon (which I knew I should save for a reason - LOL) add a further bit of sparkle. One of the new Spellbinders Fancy Framed Tags Two completes the card.

Here's a tip: Since this is basically a one layer card, plan the trimming of your image carefully. You want it to be large enough to cover the edges of the blue card stock, when you look at the inside of the card.

Design Team Post by Ruza ...


Good morning!  I'm here to share a card featuring the adorable Enjoying the Ride stamp from QKR Stampede


I am such a big fan of penguins so when I saw this image in the store I could not pass it up.  Especially once I learned how to color "white" with Copic Markers.  Once the image was colored and cut out, I layered it on the DP and washi tape, and added a SRM Sticker sentiment which is so perfect for these guys.

Enjoying the Ride is available is red rubber and digital format, and you can find both in the Store right HERE.

"Hunting Turkey"

Hi everyone....Sassy Raggedy here with you today to show you my last strutting turkey card.  The next turkey that pays me a visit is getting stuffed....lol
I tell ya, I just cannot get enough of these little "critters" from QKR Stampede.  They are just so funny and have the best looks on their faces.  I think this one believes he is going to fit right in with his human Pilgrim buddies....

You can find this "dude" over at QKR Stampede #14515 - Hunting Turkey.  I colored him with Copic Sketch Markers and Prisma Pencils.  I made a small tent card out of Kraft Card Stock and cut the image out with Spellbinders.

Have you all entered your "Turkey Strutting" Cards in our Challenge this week. You still have plenty of time to get them in.  We love seeing all those turkeys out there...

If you would like more info on my card you can just stop by my blog here!  So thanks for stopping by today and be sure to join our challenge!  Who knows you could be the lucky winner...
