DT: CHNC: for a woman/girl

I couldn’t resist using this 2 Turtle doves knitting image when I saw the prompt was to create for a woman/girl over at CHNC. So many of my crafting girls are knitters so this is made with them in mind.

I coloured the image using my Prismacolour pencils.

I used papers and cardstock to layer up the image and the sentiment.

I also added the sequins to finish off.

Happy crafting!

DT: CHNC: reindeer

Hazel chose the theme of reindeer for this week’s CHNC challenge and I was very torn on which reindeer to use for my card as I have so many different stamps to use. In the end I went very different and chose a modern and non traditional image and colour scheme.

Never seen a pink reindeer before… but hey why not? I think she looks fun, especially as with the wink of Stella on top she is all sparkly!

The reindeer and sentiment are both Woodware stamps and I added sequins to the paper to finish off the card.

Happy crafting!

Craftyhazelnuts patterned paper challenge blog

Today starts another month challenge at Craftyhazelnuts patterned paper challenge blog and I am using the same papers I used last month but never got round to doing more than one card until now…

This time I made a few cards.

I kept most of them simple with a little stamped sentiment and a mix of the papers and cardstock behind the large focal images.

I embellished with either sequins, gems or card candi!

Again plenty of this set left… going to try had to get some more made this month.

Happy crafting!

DT: CHNC: Use some red

I decided to go a little different for this week’s CHNC challenge of use some red and went fabric based for my card topper.

I started with a square of holly printed fabric and glued it to some paper for stability then used a bit of muslin and stamped the sentiment.

My stayzon is not very juicy though and it didn’t stamp well so I went over it with a sharpie and that worked fine.

Then I layered the piece of muslin onto some Hessian and sewed it together. I also did my usual messy stitching round the square.

Then I cut out one of the holly motifs from another square of fabric and added that and a wooden Angel embellishment to the topper.

A lovely textural card topper and actually quite simple to do… I have quite a few fabric squares so may make some more like this to add to the collection.

But for now I wonder how others have interpreted the red challenge for the CHNC blog.

Happy crafting!

Patwits circle journal… Jules

Today I have another circle journal page to share with you… this time for Jules. This time I used papers as the base and sewed them together. Then I added gesso by dry brushing and then added distress stain in peacock feathers and twisted citron.I then added stamping and doodling. Onto one page I also added fabric and then the focal images from a Kim Dellow stamp set.More doodling and more layers of ink. I also added shimmer and glossy accents for the flower elements.Love how this came together so easily with the fun papers and the sewing textures. Hope Jules likes it too!Happy crafting!Catherine
