DT: Craftyhazelnuts patterned paper challenge July

I’m delighted to say that I am still doing this challenge for the second half of 2019… So this time just a 1 card make. I ran out of time to do the usual batch of card making but the rest of the kit is sitting there waiting to be used so maybe I will get to it in the next couple of days…

Once again I used Making Cards Magazine freebie papers and card topper image for the card and kept it really simple as the image really is the focal point of the whole card.Love the zingy colours the funky artwork.

Now pop over and see what everyone has been up to at Craftyhazelnuts patterned paper challenge this month.

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: washi tape


Gosh I really haven’t been blogging regularly… just not been feeling well enough to sit and craft and so out of the habit I guess. Thankful I have some DT things that make me get my creative time in and also that some of them I have prepped ahead of time! This is one of those kind of posts…

This week the theme Hazel has set us at CHNC is to use washi tape so I kept my card really simple and let the sparkly washi tape do all the work!

I chose the three colours of sparkly washi I had and laid them down in strips. Then I added the First edition die cut wreath which I layered up 3 times to give it dimension.

Then I added the Tim Holtz sticker sentiment onto a strip of red cardstock and called the whole thing done! Sometimes simplicity is best!

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: CHNC: non-traditional colours

Hello! This week Hazel has challenged us to use non traditional colours for our Christmas card make for the CHNC blog.

This is what I came up with…

I used some papers I had had for a long time in the stash that are pink and lime and then added this fun embossed image.

I brushed over the image with my clarity stencil brush to define the image.

I also added an embossed sentiment from Blonde moments and the peel off strips to add a different texture.

Happy crafting!
