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!
Today I have a lot of cards to share for the Craftyhazelnuts Christmas challenge blog as the theme was quick and easy… and I got carried away making many cards using a magazine set!This was a set from Making Cards magazine last year that I hadn’t used and the toppers and papers were so easy to use as complete sets so very little needed adding. I used the leftover papers backs which were white to create the layers between papers and toppers.I sat in front of the tv cutting the papers and toppers and deciding on designs of the layouts. Then I sat at my desk to assemble them and add them to card blanks.Next I added some embellishments… card candi and some wink of stella on the words or the little decorative elements on the toppers.Love how this set came out … and in all it took about 90 mins to make all 12 cards and very little in the way of supplies.Off to see others quick and easy cards… always good for picking up tips for last minute Christmas cards!Happy crafting!Catherine
I messed up the last two weeks of CHNC by missing a week out and posting the theme at the wrong time but I am catching up again now!
This week, and I’ve checked I am right, the theme is to include a stocking! So I chose this image from a Making Cards magazine set in my stash and cut it out. I used papers from the same pack to create the background and then used foam tape to raise the focal image.
Next I added the sentiment onto the background and put that onto a dark green card blank.
