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!
So some more clearing of the desk of random stash has happened… this time these four cards using some Making Cards magazine stash.
Fun and bright cards. Love those main focal images.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
