DT: CHNC: Use glitter

Ok so for this week’s challenge at CHNC I might have gone a bit mad with the “use glitter”.

Strips of glitter washi and lots of glitter glue to coat the deer die cut!

Super quick, super sparkly!

Now to check out what the rest of the team got up to with glitter!

Happy crafting!

Calendar – November 2019

For Christmas I gave my parents and my auntie a calendar I had made with a postcard sized piece of art on each month… so today I am sharing their November artwork.

I decided to create a background using Paperartsy fresco finish paints and then chose a Visible Image stamp to emboss onto the background.

I wanted some contrast and chose some washi tape and a strip of alcohol inked glossy cardstock to go down one side.

Then to add some shimmer I stamped the smile for the same stamp set using Sparks paint. Love the shimmer to this. Finished off with the month stamp from Paperartsy.

Happy crafting!

DT: CHNC… Buttons

I am so late in blogging this week… Sorry! Better late than never I suppose!

So the challenge for CHNC this week is “buttons”.

Made this cute card with a painty background and a digi stamp snowman and some sparkly washi tape… And of course some buttons!

Happy crafting!

DT: CHNC: something beginning with H

I decided for this week’s craftyhazelnuts Christmas challenge I would choose an image with Holly in it to cover the requirement Hazel set for us to include some thing beginning with H.

I chose this Turtle Dove image from Creative Stamping magazine and coloured it with promarkers.

Then I layered the image and the patterned paper with glitter washi tape and used a gold pen to edge it.

I then added it all to a green card blank.

Happy crafting!

DT: CHNC: washi tape

Hello!

Gosh I really haven’t been blogging regularly… just not been feeling well enough to sit and craft and so out of the habit I guess. Thankful I have some DT things that make me get my creative time in and also that some of them I have prepped ahead of time! This is one of those kind of posts…

This week the theme Hazel has set us at CHNC is to use washi tape so I kept my card really simple and let the sparkly washi tape do all the work!

I chose the three colours of sparkly washi I had and laid them down in strips. Then I added the First edition die cut wreath which I layered up 3 times to give it dimension.

Then I added the Tim Holtz sticker sentiment onto a strip of red cardstock and called the whole thing done! Sometimes simplicity is best!

Happy crafting!

Colour palette inchies

Another swap to share… this time some inchies using the following colour palette…

The colour palette reminded me of a sunflower against blue skies.

Here is what I made…

I used blue ink to smoosh the watercolor the inchies in and then stamped using the dark brown archival ink and the Hardwood stamp.

I then added the spotty washi to three of the inchies and strips of the yellow washi to two of the inchies. Into the strips I added the words sun flower.

Then I inked the edge of each inchie and added an embellishment sunflower from the stash. I then arranged them onto the yellow cardstock.

Love this bright and beautiful selection of inchies.

Happy crafting!

Butterfly twinchies

Today I am sharing the collection of twinchies I made for the coin group recipients. I kept them all similar in terms of stamped and coloured butterflies using pencils as my medium and then washi and card for the background. But they all still were individual and in little sets to keep me from boredom!I started with all the colouring, all done in front of the tv!Didn’t use posh pencils just some crayola and Whsmiths own brand ones.Then cut them out … most I did by hand, some I punched with a circle punch.Then I started making up the twinchies from card scraps I had on the desk and using different washi tape (and in a couple of cases some gelli printed bookprint that was on the desk!).I kept on going with this idea until I had enough for all the recipients!A real kaleidoscope of butterflies!Happy crafting!Catherine
