Today the theme Hazel has given us to work with is inspired by a song or carol. My confession is that it was only when I put the sentiment on this card did it become my contribution to the Craftyhazelnuts christmas challenge for this week. I was just making the card and then realised I could use it for this challenge.
I used some scraps of the fabulous Winter Frost Dsp I’ve had for ages and the sticker. I added all the die cut snowflakes and then the gems to finish off the card and give it lots of texture.
Today I have the cards I made to send the Russian art dolls to the swap recipients… they include papers from the stash swap challenge I shared over the past few days… and of course are Russian art doll themed!
I used the same template as I used for the dolls… but this time I cut them from patterned paper in the stash.
The faces were from the Art by Marlene die cuts and I added doodling and shading and a little pics of doily for the frill on the headscarf.
I also added the sticky embellishments as buttons.
I adhered both dolls to a piece of card I stamped some texture into the background and doodled the border. I also added the hello sentiment.
I decided to use red card blanks to give the white panel something to contrast against.
Cute and super simple little creations with the use of the Art by Marlene faces.
When sending a swap to my friend I wanted to include a little card, so made this from stash on the desk from making the Craftyhazelnuts Patterned Paper Challenge design team contribution earlier this month.
Love these pretty papers and the shimmery pink pen I used to doodle borders to the panels.
I made this ATC using similar technique to the tag I shared yesterday… in fact the same stack of scraps was used.
I did however change it up quite a lot by coating the Whole ATC with the scraps and then blending distress ink over the top to change the colour.
Then I added one horizontal strip, along with some shimmery wallpaper scrap to give the bird something to sit on.
The bird is a new to me Alpaca Pals stamp which I embossed and then coloured using distress inks and water.
Really love how cute that bird is and can’t wait to use it again.
This ATC was a gift for someone I am doing a swap with called scrap my stash… we send each other a pile of our scraps and in return they send an ATC made using the scraps. Looking forward to seeing what they do with my scraps and what I get to play with in return.
