This week at CHNC Hazel gave us the optional challenge of using the word Joy in our projects so of course I went straight to my Peace and Joy stamp and die set. I decided on using the die cut word rather than stamping and die cutting and then wanted to add the wreath too from the Wreath Builder set.
I used some old patterned paper from the stash and then used a few of the All the Trimmings embellishments to decorate the wreath.
I also changed up the sentiment a little to heat emboss in white rather than stamp in colour or black.
I layered up the thin green die cut three times for dimension and the largest bottom layer I added pool party ink to the textured white cardstock to blend with the colour scheme of the paper.
Love how this came out… and know exactly who this going to already! In fact I started writing my Christmas cards last weekend so I know if I have enough or if I need to do a final push on making for the next couple of months. The good news is that I should be fine and should have enough with any I make between now and then as extras… and I’m pretty much done with the sets I need to gift too!
That’s the good news about making them all year round! No mad rush at the end!
I found some scraps of this cute green and pink coloured patterned paper and made this little tree card.
All the elements came from the patterned paper stash. All I added was the green cardstock and the stamped sentiment using the Peace and Joy stamps (I am obsessed with this set!). I also added a little yellow star on the tree!
Hello! First of the month means time for another Craftyhazelnuts patterned paper challenge design team contribution. Once again I dug into the Making Cards magazine kits and found some cat papers and images
I kept the cards black and white with just the pop of colour using the card candi.
Because the card blank is black I also added insert panels for the inside.
Stockings begin with an S don’t they? In which case that’s my contribution for this week’s CHNC.
I chose to make this bright and traditionally coloured but slightly Nordic in design card using some old Papermania Paper, an embossed panel, some stamped images from an old Creative Stamping magazine set and sentiment from Peace and Joy stampin up set (this is by far my favourite one from the mini catalogue … even beating the Merry Moose set at the moment …. all because of those lovely panel sentiments!).
This week there was lots of embossing at play for CHNC.
I embossed the card blank front with a Sheena Douglass embossing folder and then I used an patterned paper piece as the focal image and for the side strip. I then embossed the edge of the mat with pink and the sentiment circle with the same pink pearl.
