Crafty Hazelnut’s Patterned Paper Challenge – November 2019

For this month’s card, I decided to good very simple. I used a beautiful floral die-cut and backed it with a patterned paper. I was not overly fond of this paper, but in contrast with the bright white foreground, I think the results are wonderful.

I made 4 cards, 2 with patterned backing, two with solid. I find the patterned paper cards look softer, more romantic. I am also showing the different ways you can use the die.

I look forward o see what patterned papers you are using this month.

Tip: If you have patterned paper you be not like (and it not double-sided) use it for making envelopes.

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 – September 2019

Here at Crafty Hazelnut’s Patterned Paper Challenge, we challenge you to use patterned paper in your project. If you are like me, I buy a lot of patterned paper, but never use it. What are you waiting for! I have all the MFT Blueprint Dienamics. They were specifically designed to help the maker create fun card layouts. I used MFT #3 Blueprints for my card design and added a Copic coloured stamped image called Bear Bunny from Hambo.

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.
