Crafty Hazelnuts Patterned Paper December Challenge

Good Morning Crafters this is the last blog post that I shall be making for Crafty Hazelnuts Patterned Paper Challenge so I want to thank Hazel for letting me be part of her Design Team for the last year and I want to wish the Team all the best for the future.
And here is the Card I created for this last Challenge for me


This stamp image is from Marianne Designs I stamped it onto white card and coloured it with my copic pens I then glittered it and cut it out with a Marianne die and inked through the diecut holes. I then placed it onto a piece of blue card to make if stand out more on the patterned background.
The base card is a 6.50"x 6.50" white card and the first mount is a piece of blue card the backing paper is from Creative Expressions then in the corners I have used the Memory Box dies to create the diecut designs.
I then laid my mounted image in the center and stamped a sentiment onto another piece of white card and cut it out with a oval die and inked this around the edge to. I then placed it before the mounted image in the center.
Now that youve seen my Card I do hope you will pay a visit to the CraftyHazelnutsPatternedPaper Challenge Blogspot and see what the rest of the very talented Design Team have created for your inspirations.

A Anniversary Card


This Anniversary card was one of two I created for my stash as I do have several Anniversaries next year so I like to get several created so that they can be used straight away when the dates come up. I have used several Sue Wilson dies from Creative Expressions, the Heart border, the middle die, tags and Cape Daisy, also I have used a Swirling Heart Embossing Folder and Pixie Powders on watercolour card and velum.
Not that I had much fun with the heart as it was quite difficult putting the edge around the hearts and a few naughty words were uttered, Also I had a problem with the pearl edge they were quite small strips and moved very easily when trying to lay them straight.
The flowers were created using the pixie powder coloured velum and this were created with the Sue Wilson cape daisy and layered up as shown in the photo.

I printed this image onto white card then I used my copic pens to colour it, afterwards I used a Nestabilitie to cut it out and for the mount I used a Snowflake die thats been altered to create a mount for it, before finishes off I have used some glitter along the white edges of her dress and sleeves.
The base card is 6.50"x 6.50" white card with a first mount out of red card the papers are also from ArtbyMiran and I have used three of the papers as shown in the photo a green one for the first mount and a red and white strip and red one with lollipops on I have cut into squares and then used a Martha Stewart border and corner punches on them and layed them in opposite corners.
I then placed my mounted image in the center with the sentiment which is also from the same paper set and mounted this onto red card and this was placed in the bottom left hand corner. To finish of I have used a snowflake punch and created 4 double layered snowflakes that have been dipped into glitter and stuck around the card edge.

Crafty Hazelnuts Patterned Paper November Challenge

Good Morning Crafter's, do you know we are only about 7 weeks away from Christmas I hope you have got all your cards made as you will need to get them finished soon to have them in the post by the beginning of December, I just need to sign mine and put them into envelopes, goodness knows how much its going to cost to post as its so expensive these days.
But today's card for this month I do hope you like the result


This was for a very dear friend who unfortunately passed away at the beginning of the year due to lung cancer but she was delighted with it so I hope you like the result. The image is a buggaboo image and I printed it onto white card then used my copic pens to colour it, afterwards I cut it out with my Nestabilitie rectangle die and a larger one for the mount out of red card.
The base card is a 6.50"x 6.50" white card with a first mount out of red card, the papers are from Sweetshoppe digi papers and I have used three of them on this card and layered them up as shown in the photo. I then printed a sentiment on my computer and printed it and layered this also onto a piece of the same red card. To finish of I have used three red pearls in the top right hand corner.
I should say that my friend was in her 80s when she herself got on the back of her grandsons motorbike and rode it around the TT course on the Isle of Man where her daughter lives. She really was a spunky lady and I miss her so much.
Now that youve seen my Card I do hope that you will pop over to the Crafty Hazelnuts Patterned Paper Challenge Blogspot and see what the rest of the very talented Design Team have created for your inspiration and hopefully you to will take part in this November Challenge.

A Card for ArtbyMiran Progressive Challenge


Good Morning Crafters sorry I havent posted since the beginning of the month, this poor blog gets forgotten as I do run my No.1 blog more or less upto date though even that isnt as busy as it used to be, maybe Im getting to old for this but will keep updating as and when I can.
This months progressive Challenge is using this little lady from ArtbyMiran and I printed her onto white card then used my copic pens to colour her. Afterwards I cut her out using a rectangle die from Nestabilities and a Snowflake one for the mount.
The backing paper is also from ArtbyMiran and its called "Winter Frost, I have used two papers and the first one is a darker one than the second and this was cut into a square and then punched on all four sides with a Martha Stewart Border and Corner punch. I then layered them up as shown and a ribbon was bound around the card and attached to the back.
The mounted image was placed towards the left and the sentiment at the bottom on the right hand side, to finish of I have punched some snowflakes out and placed them down the right hand side of the card.

Crafty Hazelnuts Patterned Paper Challenge - October

Good Morning Crafters, well where did September go can you believe its disappeared so quickly and we are inching so close to Xmas and New Year, although I love the colours of Autumn I must admit I hate really hate Winter and the dark nights, they depress me no end, but I suppose thats me and and perhaps you prefer Winter I just love light and not the dark.
Well can you believe it I had better stop before I depress you as well and this is a new Challenge over on Crazy Hazelnuts Patterned Paper Challenge Blogspot and here is the card I created for it.


I adore Orchids and have quite a number of the Moth Orchid and at the moment I even have one in flower


Its a beautiful two tone pink flower, the white one next door is a bit sick unfortunately the plant got a bit over watered and it seems to caused it not to open completely which is a shame.
The card was creating using not only the Heartfelt Botanic Orchid papers, but also the dies and I stamped the flowers onto card, coloured them and then cut them out with the dies and shaped them with my embossing tool to create depth.
Even the border die down the left side is another Heartfelt Die and slipped behind the mounted image, I have also used a square doilies to to try and cover up the fact that I didnt quite have a big enough piece of paper for my first layer.
Now that youve seen my Card I do hope that you will pay a visit to the Crafty Hazelnuts Patterned Paper Challenge Blogspot and see what the rest of the very talented Design Team have created for your inspiration and hopefully you to will want to take part in this Patterned Paper Challenge.
