Cupcake craft challenge #162–DT card


Please scroll down to see my Stamp with Fun DT card

Hello again friends, I’m back as promised with my DT card for this week’s cupcake craft challenge.  This week our lovely competition winner Sandra has set the theme and she has chosen “black & white Christmas”, which sounds pretty easy but in fact I found this a really tough challenge lol!  Here is my card:

CCC challenge 162 - black & white Christmas

CCC challenge 162- black & white Christmas (close up)

I have used a new stamp (for me anyway!) by CC designs from their sweet November range called ‘Eira’ and coloured her with a mix of promarkers and flex markers and liberally covered her with stickles.  I created my own background by simply stamping randomly with an old Elzybells snowflake stamp in black ink and I added stickles to the centres of the snowflakes.  It’s hard to tell but I embossed the strip across the card and used a MS snowflake border punch to add some extra decoration. 

Our sponsor this week is Simon Says Stamp and one lucky winner will receive a $20.00 gift voucher (excl p&p) to spend in their online store.


Don’t forget we also have our ‘icing on the cupcake’ and for October we have two fantastic sponsors.  Firstly we have Polka Doodles and they are offering one lucky winner a copy of their ‘pretty sweet’ CD collection.  Our second sponsor is Scrap Affair and they are offering one lucky winner a 5 pack of promarkers. 

The rest of the design team have created amazing samples as always, so please pop over to the challenge blog and check them out.  We really appreciate the lovely comments you leave for us.
