Well hello! And happy start of advent. I have a very non-christmas card to share today that I made for my contribution to Craftyhazelnuts patterned paper challenge. I actually stuck the video on to record the process… you can check this out here

And here is the card I made… 

I love these funky papers and the contrast with the delicate butterfly from Watercolour wings. Adorable. 

So now off to see what others have got up to with their stash of patterned paper over on the blog

Happy crafting!

DT: Craftyhazelnuts patterned paper challenge 

Hello everyone… I have a lovely vintage themed card to share with you today using some Prima papers I got with a magazine and some bits and pieces off the desk. This is my contribution for the design team for Craftyhazelnuts patterned paper challenge… where the challenge is to use your patterned paper! 

I chose two pieces of the paper and adhered them to Old Olive cardstock and then added some small pieces to the tag which i had inked and a small piece of the cardstock so it created a few layers. 

I chose some natural trim from my stash and then a chipboard teapot from an Artful Days Goodie box a few months ago. I painted it with the Art Alchemy Sparks paint to add the shine. Then I added the with love sticker and a little brad to add more interest. 

Finally I can’t have a tag without some bakers twine from the top!!! 

Off to see what everyone else has got up to with their patterned paper stash over on the blog

Happy crafting!

Hello … how is it already the 1st of October? Wow! This year is zooming past! And apologies no blog posts for the last couple of days… but I am back up and running (well stumbling along may be a more accurate description) again! 

Well as it’s the first of the month I have a Design Team contribution for Craftyhazelnuts patterned paper challenge.

I used Memories and More card pack from the Colour Theory suite and made an anniversary card. 

I love how this came out, especially with the acetate overlay. Nice to use these project life style cards that I know I am unlikely to use for the reason intended! 

Rightio… with that card shared it is now time for me to go check out what my fellow team mates have been up to with their stash of patterned paper! 

Happy crafting!

Hello there… well the summer is coming to an end and it’s nearly time for me to go back to work and the princess to start at high school! And as it’s the start of the month it’s also time for my contribution to Craftyhazelnuts patterned paper challenge. I really do have so much patterned paper to work through!

These particular papers came with a magazine along with the dies for the bird and the stamps I used for the sentiment. 

Such a pretty set. Really need to get making more using these papers. But for now I’m off to see what everyone else has been up to with their patterned paper. 

Happy crafting!

Craftyhazelnuts patterned paper challenge… a cute anniversary card

Hello there.

I am late with this month’s Craftyhazelnuts patterned paper challenge but have finally got my act together and managed to get my card finished and photographed.

I used the the wonderful paper and images from a Making Cards magazine and some crumb cake cardstock. The paper goes with slightly different images but I loved this feather paper and the romantic image.

Now off to do a quick trawl round the rest of the blog dt and see what they made using their patterned paper stash.

Happy crafting!

DT: Craftyhazelnuts patterned paper challenge 

Hello.  How quickly did June go past? Wowser half the year gone! 

So as it’s the first of the month I have a design team project to share with you that I did for Craftyhazelnuts patterned paper challenge. 

The challenge is to use patterned paper and so I grabbed some of mine from the stash and created a card for my Mums birthday (which isn’t until next month but hey I’m organised for once!). 

I chose three papers from the same pack. Unfortunately forgotten what the name of the pack was and layered them up, inking each of the edges I tore.  I stamped the Tim Holtz butterfly a few times lightly and spritzed it with water to oxidize the background… yes I had used my beloved oxides. I let it dry and then did a mammoth amount of sewing on the machine. I thought this gave it a nice patchwork type effect.

Next I took a kraft card tag and added the doily and part of the patterned paper I had cut out. I added some trim which I had got in a swap and then stamped and cut out another of the butterflies to layer up. 

The sentiment was also stamped on the same patterned paper and then I took a stamp with the word Mum and added that too. 

Finished off with the tiny pearl gems from stampin up scattered across the card. 

Love how this came out. Now off to see what the rest of the DT have been up to this month with their patterned paper stash. 

Happy crafting!
