DT: Craftyhazelnuts patterned paper challenge

Another month has passed so quickly… and it’s time to use up some patterned paper for Craftyhazelnuts challenge. I chose to do another one sheet wonder challenge.

I chose a graphic black and white paper and used the following template I had drawn up…

And I set to with the paper and black card to mat each layer.

Next I added some coloured cardstock as bases.

Then with white cardstock, ribbons from the stash and stamped images I made them up into fun cards.

Stamps used… Watercolor wings, petal palette, Birds and Branches, jar of flowers, Honey Bee and Gorgeous grunge.

Also used coordinating dies for images where I had them and the accompanying dies for Petals and More and Birds and More for the added elements.

Love how these all came out!

Happy crafting!

UK Stampers Forum swap… Bee Happy Coins

Another day, another set of coins. This time my coins are for the UK stampers forum swap.

I decided to use the Peace and Joy stamps to create backgrounds and then the Honey Bee stamp for the focal element.

I started with a base of Fresco finish paints in Jade and then stamped and embossed the Happy stamp all over the background. I roughed it up a little to add additional embossing.

I then splattered Amethyst paint, and painted some scrap with the same colour before die cutting the honeycomb.

I also stamped another of the happy sentiments onto the amethyst card.

Then stamped and die cut the bee and glued all the layers together. Then I added a gem onto each of them.

I love how the embossing works in the background with the mix of the Matt and shiny finishes.

Hope the recipients like them too.

Happy crafting!
