Crafty Hazelnut’s Patterned Paper Challenge – December 2019

For this month’s card, I used the card layout Blueprints #26 by MFT. I added some extra fun by also decorating the inside of the card using the same patterned papers, a balloon diecut and Hambo’s stamp, Newt. I coloured Newt with Copic markers. The inside sentiment is by SSS.

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.

Simply Create Too – Challenge #151 – July 5 to July 26 – AG/Opt Twist Use Pattern Paper

1 Simply Create 2 DT

This month at Simply Crete Too, the design team is looking for a project that uses patterned paper. My little grandson just celebrated his 6th birthday. When he was born I made him a lovely picture for his wall using the saying “what are little boys made of.” Fast forward 6 years, and he feels it is a little too “baby” for him. So me, in my wisdom, told him I would make him a new picture, I problem, I asked him what he would like. His immediate response was Black Panther!. OMG, how do I do a 3D picture of BP? Well, I search the web and was able to purchase an SVG file of the Black Panther character, one of Africa and one of the BP script. Hours later I put it all together-never again!

I found fabulous 12 x 12 leafy patterned paper for the background. I cut all my main images using my Cricut Explorer Air. I welded the BP logo on the map of Africa and cut it out approximately 7″ tall from a map patterned cardstock. I backed the logo with black cardstock then added it to the background using one layer of foam tape so start the 3D effect. Because the Cricut will not cut edge to edge on the 12 x 12 mat, I created a grass border frame 11 x 11 and layered it on the background using 2 layers of foam tape. Next, I added Black Panther figure with 3 layers of foam tape. For the final steps, I added various die cut leaves from my collections of die -Memory Box, MFT, Penny Black, SSS.

The Black Panther SVG was my first attempt at a multi-layered image. I think the SVG was designed more for a t-shirt then for my purpose and the details were extremely hard to do. I had problems with glue showing as I had to lift and reposition lines multiple times. To resolve the issue, I sprayed it with semi-matte lacquer. After 3 coats it covered the glue.

I also made Brock’s birthday cards using the same BP character but I printed the image on my colour HP printer and layered it on the Africa cut. He loved it. If you have any questions, please email me for more details.

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.
