DT: CHNC: something beginning with H

I decided for this week’s craftyhazelnuts Christmas challenge I would choose an image with Holly in it to cover the requirement Hazel set for us to include some thing beginning with H.

I chose this Turtle Dove image from Creative Stamping magazine and coloured it with promarkers.

Then I layered the image and the patterned paper with glitter washi tape and used a gold pen to edge it.

I then added it all to a green card blank.

Happy crafting!

DT: CHNC: JOY

Hello!

Saturday again… time for another CHNC challenge design team contribution. This week we have to include the word JOY in our creation. So here is what I made.

I absolutely love this cute snowballing couple and enjoyed colouring them with promarkers. I chose papers from the stash (a random selection of blues) and then used promarkers to colour both the mats for the focal image and the die cut word and the sticker sentiment. This was I knew that they worked with the image I coloured.

I also chose some light turquoise sequins to finish off.

The whole panel was the same size as the card front so there isn’t a white mat around the edge which is a bit different for me.

Happy crafting!

DT: CHNC: reindeer

Hazel chose the theme of reindeer for this week’s CHNC challenge and I was very torn on which reindeer to use for my card as I have so many different stamps to use. In the end I went very different and chose a modern and non traditional image and colour scheme.

Never seen a pink reindeer before… but hey why not? I think she looks fun, especially as with the wink of Stella on top she is all sparkly!

The reindeer and sentiment are both Woodware stamps and I added sequins to the paper to finish off the card.

Happy crafting!

DT: CHNC: snowflakes

Hazel set us the challenge of using snowflakes for the CHNC blog this week. So I chose snowflake paper, and added more snowflakes to it using stamps and white embossing powder.

I then added the main image of a Digital stamp I coloured using promarkers onto a band of darker green, with the sentiment and some sequins!

Love the little penguin. So cute.

So definitely went for a few snowflakes for this one!

Happy crafting!

Shaving foam postcard

This month I had fun with shaving foam to create a background for my postcard for the UK stampers forum swap.I chose this red and pink print I made using alcohol ink and the shaving foam. Then I stamped the Gorjuss Girl on to it.

I then paper pieced the girl onto separate card and glued it onto the card.

Next I added the edge stamping and the sentiment. Then I thought it needed sealing so it could go through the post. So I added three layers of clear embossing. Then mounted it onto navy cardstock.Love how this looks.

Happy crafting!

DT: Back to Basics and Beyond challenge blog: nail polish technique

So this fortnight the challenge is nail polish technique. Now this was new to me but great fun!

I started with shaving foam in an old canvas and then dropped in some nail varnish, one of which is shimmery. Then I pulled some prints…Love the marbled and random effects…I decided to use the prints as a background and to paper piece a Gorjuss girl.I coloured her with promarkers and chose promarkers to edge the panels too.Love the shimmer in the nail polish paper. So cool!

Finished off with some card candi, some gifted die cuts and a butterfly and some Tranquil Tide cardstock.Still got some prints left to play with on another day, so will no doubt share what I do with them when I get round to using them!

Happy crafting!
