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.
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.
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.
I look forward to see you patterned paper put to good use!
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.
We encourage you to open your patterned paper stash and create!
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 look forward to seeing your creations.
