DT: Craftyhazelnuts patterned paper challenge

I must admit I was a little worried I might not get this done in time, but then Monday night I grabbed myself some craft time and made six cards using a piece of 6×6 cut from the Expressions in Ink dsp (I adore this paper and it was a challenge to cut into I promise!) and the coordinating stamps and dies, plus the Biggest Wish stamps which are my current faves!

I split the panels into pairs and so these are the two where I added the panel of Pale Papaya cardstock which I ran through the embossing folder to create additional texture.

Next these two I used Basic white and added some background stamping for behind the smaller panels of dsp and the embellishments.

Finally these two I added the Forever Gold elements as fun backgrounds plus the Pale Papaya cardstock to finish off.

Love the colours and the gold foiling in the dsp and those die cut leaves are amazing. Love how the stamps work well with the papers plus to create background elements too.

And those biggest wish stamps are still my favourites!

Anyway… this is my latest make for the Craftyhazelnuts patterned paper challenge blog design team and now it is time to go visit everyone else’s blogs and see what they have been up to!

Happy crafting!

CASE birthday cards

Remember the father’s day card I made where I had used Martin’s card as my inspiration… well I also made these three birthday cards for the stash using the same idea but different colour ways.

I changed up some of the background stamping and the papers but kept to the same idea of fussy cutting the Happy word (Biggest Wish stamp set).

Love how simple these were to make.

Happy crafting!

Happy Birthday Dad


Today is my Dad’s birthday … and as its so close to fathers day I try to make something completely different in style! I did however use my new favourite stamp set Biggest Wish to make up part of the sentiment.

I chose to go full on layers however and used the Forever Greenery dsp and the gold embellishments for the card against the kraft card blank and Crumb Cake cardstock.

It was quite easy to make… just layers and the stamped sentiment as those gold embellishments do all the work… and the white leaves are from the same set, just reversed!

I used the remaining dsp I had on the desk (it was a 6×6 piece I had cut from the 12×12) to finish the inside of the cars off.

Happy crafting!

Happy fathers day Dad!

Today is fathers day so we were due to go out to celebrate later with my hubby and princess, and my parents, but the restaurant has had to close due to staff testing positive, so a change of plans and I have to go to the shop to buy food and then cook. Ah well until then I thought I would quickly drop by and share the card I made for my Dad which was totally inspired by the talented Martin at Martin’s Mayhem.

As soon as I saw his card using the Biggest Wish stamp set I knew I wanted to recreate it. I used my own random scraps of dsp from the stash and different other stamp sets to make the greeting but you can clearly see his cards influence.

In fact I loved this so much I decorated the inside of the card…

… and the envelope!

Really loved making this!

Thanks for the inspiration Martin!

Happy crafting!
