Marty Snowman

Today I've made ten Christmas cards. One of Sue's challenges for the birthday celebrations on CBC '10 from 1' is to choose a stamp, diecut, embellishment, digi download, whatever and use it at least 10 times on 10 different cards - and I mean different!!! Use different papers etc.'

So I stamped Marty snowman ten times and coloured with copics - all different, of course.

Marty is one of the Stitchels stamps designed by Hels Sheridan and sold by Jennie at The Artistic Stamper.

So I'm entering all of these cards for Sue's '10 from 1' challenge and also for the 25th club on BF, where the subject for March is 'snowmen and sparkle'.

Some of the cards are also suitable for the March challenge on Christmas cards all year round, but only the ones that are mainly green, because the theme is 'to use mostly green on your card and one of my favorties...snowmen!' In the individual posts below I've identified the five that are for Christmas cards all year round.

All the cards have Marty snowman on them with faux stitching around the clothing, so this is OK for Bah! humbug 8: 'stitching'. And challenge 6 was for snowmen, so it's also good for that.

Week 13 on Sparkle creations Christmas was an open theme, so I'm linking these cards there (this means I've now done all of the challenges on there up to date).

Here they all are:

But I'm putting this message at the top of the individual cards so you can then scroll down if you wish to see each one and the challenges that they are linked to.

The sweetest thing in green and beige

This is for the sweetest thing sketch 59:

Also for the photo inspiration on CCEE (I've concentrated on the colours)
The swirly card was from a QVC kit and the Christmas trees have been cut from some Brenda Pinnick paper.

I'm also linking this card for Sophisticat 25: 'flourishes and bling' and also Crazy amigo: 'swirls'.

The card is also for CBC challenge '10 from 1', BF 25th club and Christmas cards all year round March challenge - all as outlined in the post above.

Christmas in the pink

This is for Card patterns sketch 54:

Also for Christmas stampin' all year round 42: 'a colourful Christmas' - shades of pink. And Fab's week 9 calls for alternative techniques - well, this isn't a technique, but it is quite unusual to have an all-pink Christmas card, so I'm linking for that.

Background paper and sparkly ribbon are DCWV.

Sassy lilac and aqua

This is for Taylored expressions sketch 103:

Also for Lisa's colour combo on Susie's sassy 9, which calls for lilac and aqua to be used.

Loonie challenge 81
is to use stamps, but no patterned paper, so this is OK for that.

Christmas with no Christmas papers

This is for Eat sleep stamp 73 sketch (I turned it on its side):

Also for BG week 15 photo inspiration:

The blue background paper is BG lily kate and the pink paper is BG bittersweet, so neither are actually Christmas papers, but I think they work well for the colour scheme of the photo.

Ruby wedding celebration

I was asked to make a ruby wedding anniversary card and this is what I've come up with. The papers are BG blush and most of the elements used at Express yourself. Corners were cut with fancy scissors.

It's another celebration card for Creative card crew 46, Gingersnap GC45 chestnut theme and also for 'celebration' on Flourishes timeless 57.

It's also for Sue's CBC birthday challenge: pick a letter - you must choose a letter and then 3 things on your card must begin with that initial letter. So, my letter is G - gems, glitter and glasses.

A winning card

I won two digital images of my choice for this card which was featured for 'birthdays' on Penny's challenges. I'm looking forward to using the images I chose.
