DT: CHNC: patterned paper

Today I am using patterned paper on my card for CHNC as that’s the challenge that Hazel set for us!

I used the Winter Frost paper from the stash and then a laser cut panel from something my friend gave to me.

I coordinated the paper with some grey and teal cardstock.

I finished off with the sentiment sticker and the card candi.

Happy crafting!

Stamped tag for UK stampers forum

I managed to make the tag for this month’s swap at UK stampers forum at the weekend.

I used some of the patterned papers I had used for this month’s Craftyhazelnuts patterned paper challenge.

I also used an inked mini tag which I stamped a floral image onto. I then distress oxides to add colour to the flowers and leaves.

I added some details in pen to the papers and a sticker as the sentiment.

I then added a collection of ribbons and stapled them into place.

Happy crafting!

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!

Happy birthday Mum

Yesterday was Mum’s birthday so we celebrated with a meal out.

Here is the card I made for her…

I loved this bold and bright paper from art by Marlene and knew it was perfect for my Mum. I teamed it with the Happy Wishes white embossed sentiment and some light grey cardstock.

I also added in the Happy Celebrations stamp to finish the sentiment and then a scatter of sequins to embellish.

Happy crafting!

Tag for UK Stampers Forum

Today I have the tag I made for this month’s swap at UK stampers forum… because guess what… I’ve been creating again! After what felt like forever I have finally got back in the craft room and been making stuff! Finally!Anyways… the tag!I started with lots of off cuts of papers I had lying on the desk and started creating the background on this large Art by Marlene tag from the stash.Once I had covered the tag I then scraped over some white gesso and let it dry. I then added some flicks of Dylusions inks in blue and teal and edged it with teal ink.I also did a little inking with black archival too to grunge it up some more.The top panel I made using wipe up distress oxide ink from another project using the glossy cardstock to wipe it up. This always creates a fun background.I used a handcarved stamp to add the swirls and a random text stamp to add the writing. I added lots of dark ink around the edge to frame the panel and then glued it in place on the tag.Next I stamped the three Tim Holtz butterflies onto mixed media cardstock and added embossing powder. I didn’t quite get all of them embossed but it was enough to provide some texture to the stamping.I then added distress oxides as a watercolour to the butterflies before cutting them out.I glued them in place and used some pencils to add some more definition around the edge of the panel and the two butterflies floating off the edges.I then added the Tim Holtz sticker sentiment and the ribbon to finish!Super happy with how this turned out.Happy crafting!Catherine
