DT: CHNC: stocking

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.

Easy and elegant I think!

Happy crafting!

Some random cards for the stash

I decided to use up some more papers that I used at the beginning of the month for the Craftyhazelnuts Patterned Paper Challenge and make a couple more cards.

For both I went for lots of bits of papers and used distress inks to edge each piece and give it some strength and frame.

The first one I finished with a bird die cut I had been gifted in a swap. Cute!

The second I added a Coin that my lovely friend Mara had made in a swap that I thought worked perfectly with the papers as a card topper.

Hope you like these.

Happy crafting!

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!
