Crafty Hazelnut’s Christmas Challenge 472 – Feature a Creature (any animal)

Please join my Facebook page

This week’s challenge at Crafty Hazelnut’s Christmas Challenge 472 – Feature a Creature (any animal). I decided to use a new die set called, “ALL INSIDE BY JULIE EBERSOLE, ESSENTIALS BY ELLEN Hudson DESIGNER DIES”. I used papers from my stash, die the little bear, added a die-cut sentiment from, “Sue Wilson for Creative Expressions Craft Dies” and layered it on my card front.

Crafty Hazelnut’s Patterned Paper Challenge – October 2019

For all our challenges here at Crafty Hazelnut’s Patterned Paper Challenge, we encourage you to use your patterned paper. All to often we card crafters have a tendency to hoard our patterned paper. For my card, I used a wonderful SVG file from Dreaming Tree Designs called For the Ladies. The sentiment is from Gina K.

I look forward to seeing your patterned paper put to good use.

Crafty Hazelnut’s Patterned Paper Challenge – August 2019

I am running a month behind for the theme of my card, but it was so cute, I just had to make a late appearance. My card was made to celebrate Canada Day July 1, 2019. Last year I bought this adorable Oh Canada stamp and die set from Photoplay.. I used various patterned paper from their matching paper set, and the Beaver and moose stamp/die. I coloured my characters with Copic markers.

Crafty Hazelnut’s Patterned Paper Challenge – July 2019

Hello everyone. My name is Myrna and I have worked with Hazel (Crafty Hazelnut) for a number of years as a DT member of her Crazyhazelbut’s Christmas Challenge Extra (now closed), Crafty Hazelnut’s Christmas Challenge (still current), and The Glory of Christmas Design (now closed). I have a huge hoard and pattern papers but often overlook using them. I am stoked to be a member of her Patterned Paper Challenge.

For my first challenge, I had to make a number of graduation cards for my friends’ grandbabies-1 boy and 4 girls. I decided to use my Cricut Explore Air and an SVG file from Jamie and Jenn called Bow Tie Graduate Card. I modified the card design slightly for the girl cards (*the designer also make this SVG file for a girl graduate). I personalized each card by hand lettering the grade they successfully completed.

I decided to dust off my Cricut machine and using a fabulous Cascade Card design from Dreaming Tree, I created a Mother’s Day card.
