DT: CHNC: Use a star

I have a simple card for this week as I’ve been a tad busy with supporting Adult Social Care as they cope with the joy of life in the current Coronavirus situation.

Anyway enough about that…

The theme for this week that Hazel asked us to play with was to include a star or two… So I chose a bugaboo image and thought it worked well with the paper from a Making Cards kit.

I added Wink of Stella and glossy accents to the star to give it some dimension although it turned out quite textural due to some air bubbles. But I quite like it still!

Hope you have a good week and keep safe and well… And inside for those of you who like me are on lockdown!

Happy crafting!

DT: CHNC: Green

Hello!

This week I have another cute card for the CHNC blog and I used lots of different types of Green as per Hazel’s instruction to the design team. Note you don’t have to follow the challenge to join in on the blog… you just need to make a Christmas card!

So I chose some green coloured cardstock and paper that went with it. I layered them up and added some string as it looked quite rustic to me.

Then I searched through digi images I had printed, found this cute turtle and decided he would be perfect as the focal image.

Using promarkers to colour him I also added wink of Stella to the bubbles and the present bow.

Love how cute this is. Not my usual style but it’s always fun to play with something different!

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!

DT: CHNC: include a star or two or more

Not been around on the blog much the last few weeks… sorry.

Not really got much crafting done but hopefully will get some done this weekend.

I did however manage to get my design team contribution done for Craftyhazelnuts Christmas challenge where the theme is to use a star, or two, or more!

I chose this Bugaboo digital image and coloured it with promarkers and added Wink of Stella to the star.

I layered the image onto a scrap of felt to give the card some texture and used brads to add to the card with something different.

I layered the felt onto a few patterned paper pieces and used washi tape to add sparkle.

Then I added it to a red card blank. I added the Tim Holtz chipboard sentiment and then finished with three black shiny star confetti which kept the look funky.

Love this Bugaboo image… so cute and easy to colour!

Happy crafting!

DT: Back to Basics and Beyond challenge: Bingo card

Today on the Back to Basics and Beyond challenge blog there is a bingo card to play with.

I chose to use the middle column… blue, flower, pearls… and made this card.

I chose patterned papers from the stash that had blue within them and mounted a few panels with blue cardstock. I teamed these with a doily to soften the background. Then I added the digital image I had printed and coloured with promarkers.

I added the stamped sentiment and then pearls and a flower so I could fulfil the bingo card.

Fun to make and a pretty card as a result.

Wonder what line you would make for your bingo? Why not join us at the blog?

Happy crafting!

Advent cardmaking: Nativity

Today is the final day in my advent cardmaking series… was touch and go whether I would get all 24 videos done… but got there! And saved the nativity as my final theme… after all that’s what Christmas is all about!

The card I made is a simple one… a digi stamp image I had already coloured and a panel with papers I had already sorted beforehand.

So I pretty much added the frame and the sentiment and added some shimmer using my wink of Stella and that’s pretty much it!

So I hope you’ve enjoyed this series of cards… it’s been fun having a different theme each day. Here is the last video.

And now it is time for me to enjoy the festivities… wishing you all a fabulous Christmas!

Happy crafting!

Advent cardmaking: snowman

Today I went for something really quick as I hadn’t got much time… so a prepared card and a digital stamp I had coloured using promarkers.

I added a layer of vellum and a sentiment sticker and finished with lots of shimmer on the carrot nose on the snowman.

So a very quick and simple card today… enjoy the speedy video!

And here is a pic in daylight… it’s amazing the difference the real light makes.

Happy crafting!
