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.

A Card using a Image from Conie Fong

Good Morning Crafters I am so lapse in keeping up to date with my No.2 blog but I do have a card I can show you.
I won this gorgeous image from Conie Fong last week and I love it so I thought you might to.


I printed this image onto white card and then coloured it with my copic pens, afterwards I cut it out with my No.1 labels from Spellbinders and I used a fancy one for the mount.
The base card is 6.75"x 6.75" white card and the first mount out of blue card and the papers are from Nitwits "Bonnets and Bouties" and I have used four papers they are so pretty in pastel shades and layered up as shown in the photo.
I placed my mounted image in the top left hand corner and the sentiment in the bottom right. To finish of I have use two gem corners in the opposite corners to balance it up.

Crafty Hazelnuts Patterned Paper Challenge

Good Morning Crafters, I cannot believe that we have already reached September and over on Crafty Hazelnuts Patterned Paper Challenge its a new month and of course this means a new Challenge and for this one I have used the Altenew Stamps and this are fabulous to create your own designs which I hope you enjoy.


And I have used them to create not only the topper but also the layers of my card


The idea of the stamps is to layer up the images by using different coloured inkpads as you can see for my roses and leaves.
The base card is a 6.50"x 6.50" white card and for the first mount I have used red card and then created a two further layers and before laying them up I have temporarily layered them up before stamping my roses over all three layers and again the leaves, and I have used three colours of red for the roses and two for the leaves. I then used a sentiment for the center. And before finally layered them up I have used two more red mounts to make them stand out and some mounting foam to give it depth.
I do hope that youve enjoyed my card and will pay a visit to the Crafty Hazelnuts Patterned Paper Challenge Blogspot and see what the rest of the talented design Team have created for your inspiration and hopefully you to will want to take part in this months Challenge.

Crazy Hazelnuts Pattern Paper Challenge - August

Good Morning Crafters, well over on Crazy Hazelnuts Pattern Paper Challenge we have of course now reached a brand new month which means a brand new Challenge, so I do hope you will join us.
And for my Card


I used some of the beautiful John Lockwood stamps


And find that Craftasmic has a fabulous choice and a competitive prices for this stamp set so do pay and visit and see the rest of the stamps that go with it.
And I have used the small stamp on the right to create my own background and then layered this onto a piece of blue card for the first stage. I then stamps the corner stamp onto another piece of white card and created with the scroll stamps the rest of the design as shown in the photo. I also stamped the single flowers on a separate piece of card and coloured them, afterwards I cut them out and moulded them and stuck them on top of the scrolled flower corner to give them form.
I then used the Cosmic Shimmer Pixie powders to colour it, afterwards I then layered his up onto another piece of the same blue card and then placed in the middle of my background.
Now that youve seen my Card I do hope that you will pay a visit to the Crazy Hazelnuts Pattern Paper Challenge Blogspot and see what the rest of the very talented Design Team have created for your inspiration and hopefully you will want to take part in this August Challenge.

Crafty Hazelnuts Patterned Paper Challenge - July

Good Morning Crafters I ball at the Idea of calling you Nutters are Hazels name, but here we are into the July can you believe we are now starting to go into the second half of the year, although I love the summer I really dont like going into the later half of the year but I suppose we just have to accept the inevitable so here is my card for July I hope you like it.


As you can no doubt tell I love to create my own background and my most favourite design of stamps are made by Justrite and this is a design I pinched from John Lockwood and I think it makes a really beautiful card. You will find you can get hold of this dies and stamps from several of the online shops but my own choice for good value is Craftsamic Craft Store in Taunton and I find their prices are really good, here are the stamps and dies I have used.


I created the background with the stamps in the middle set, then a topper with the top set, I also stamped out the single flower stamp three times and cut them out with the die from the bottom set.
As you can see its also backed with a dark blue card and dark blue ribbon which was wrapped around the topper in the middle.
I do hope you like my card and that you will now 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 will want to take part in this months Patterned Paper Challenge.

A Card for the Facebook ArtbyMiran Challenge

Good Morning Crafters on a wet and chilly Friday Morning, well it looks as if we have had our Summer doesnt it, I have a Christening to go next weekend so Im keeping my fingers crossed that it will improve or its not going to be very pleasant sailing along the broads afterwards for the party. Anyway I thought my card today might cheer me and you up, its the latest Progressive Image from ArtbyMiran and I printed her onto white card then used my copic pens to colour her, afterwards I used my Sue Wilson dies to cut her out and a larger one for the mount out of pink card. The sentiment is also from the same design set as the papers.
The base card is a 6.50"x 6.50" white card with a first mount out of pink card the papers are also from ArtbyMiran this set is called "Pink and Blue" and I have used several of the papers and the second and third layers I have used a Martha Steward border punch on them and layered them up as shown in the photo, I then wrapped a bright pink rib
bon around the card and attached it to the back of the first mount.
Then on top I layered the last of my layers and popped the image and a jaunty angle and the sentiment at the bottom on the left. I then decided to use the last two papers from the design set and a Daily Bread Daisy die and used three different sizes and layered them up as shown and a pearl was positioned in the center.
