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!

DT: Craftyhazelnuts patterned paper challenge July

I’m delighted to say that I am still doing this challenge for the second half of 2019… So this time just a 1 card make. I ran out of time to do the usual batch of card making but the rest of the kit is sitting there waiting to be used so maybe I will get to it in the next couple of days…

Once again I used Making Cards Magazine freebie papers and card topper image for the card and kept it really simple as the image really is the focal point of the whole card.Love the zingy colours the funky artwork.

Now pop over and see what everyone has been up to at Craftyhazelnuts patterned paper challenge this month.

Happy crafting!
