It is Saturday and that means it is time for a new DT contribution for Craftyhazelnuts Christmas challenge blog. This week the challenge was to feature a creature, and I chose this reindeer pulling a sleigh image to fulfil the criteria.
I created the background using distress inks and distress sprays and some random text and sentiment stamps. Then I stamped and embossed the image and sentiment onto white cardstock.
I decided to add to the texture by using staples and sequins to embellish.
Yes I am also lucky enough to stay with the CHNC design team this year and the plan is to get at least 52 cards done as part of the challenge!
Hazel’s first challenge is to upcycle something or use something old.
Well I used a scrap of ribbon off crackers at my cousins Christmas get together and a coin I received in a swap (I actually received two so hence me using one!). Thanks and credit for the coin go to Heidi Green.
The papers are ones from a gift I got in the advent twinchies swap so it was good to get started on that stash pile too!
Happy New year! And welcome 2020! Wow that sounds quite futuristic!
To kick off the new year I have my first design team contribution of the year and I am still with Craftyhazelnuts patterned paper challenge in the hope of working through more of those stacks of patterned paper. I haven’t used much on this card but it is a start!
I have used the Making Cards magazine stash to make this quick hello card.
I love these papers and the sweet image but only had time to make the one card this time.
Hope you had an enjoyable festive season… It’s back to work for me tomorrow but secretly I need to get back to normality and to stop eating cheese so I am looking forward to it!
Ok so we might have had Christmas and Boxing Day … but that just means it’s time to make a start on next year’s cards… so CHNC blog helps you to get it in hand by making one a week throughout the year.
Here is my anything goes card to start off the collection for 2020!
