Click here to go to challenge blog 

Time again for another Sketch Challenge from C.R.A.F.T. I changed up the design slightly to fit a 4.25″ x 5.5″ A2 card. I used a stamp set called Snowman Soup by Sweet n Sassy. The stamped image was coloured with Spectrum Noir Markers. The papers and stickers are from my stash. Note: I purchased my clear stamp and die set from Sweet n Sassy, however now it is only available as a digital stamp – The bonus is that you can make the image any size!

Crafty Hazelnut’s Christmas Challenge – 24 March 2018 – Inspired by a Christmas song or carol

CHNC blog button DT

This week at Crafty Hazelnut’s Christmas Challenge we are looking for a Christmas project inspired by a Christmas Song or Carol. I went a little rogue this week and based my Card on a modified version of Justin Timberlake’s “Bringing Sexy Back” to “Bringing Sexy Sweaters Back”. I used a fabulous stamp set by Simon Says Stamps – Ugly Sweaters and Sweater Words. I coloured the images with my Spectrum Noir Markers and Zig Wink of Stella Clear. I framed my image with some candy cane striped paper from my stash.

C.R.A.F.T. Challenge 419 – 8th of June – Inspired by a Film


For this challenge I did a little twist, vs being inspired by a movie, I was inspired about going to the movies! I used an adorable little girl stamp by Lacy Sunshine Stamps called Rory’s Movie Snacks. I coloured her with Spectrum Noir Markers. I added glossy accents to her eye. I made two versions of the card to show that simple design layouts can change the feel of the card.movies1

C.R.A.F.T. Challenge 418 – 1st of June – Recipe Challenge


For my card for the Recipe Challenge, I used:

1) an image from Digital Delights called Christmas Bongo

2) two paper ribbon trims from KaiserCraft

3) three patterned papers from my stash

4) gold button I created from MFT Die

I hand coloured the dog using my Spectrum Noir markers. I also printed the image on three patterned papers which I paper pieced for his scarf, hat, and Christmas stocking. I Added a button as the hat’s pom-pom. I fussy cut out the dog and layered him on various papers from my stash. The sentiment was computer generated.

C.R.A.F.T. Challenge 417 – 25th of May – Fathers’ Day/Male

DTbadgeWe tend to make more female cards than male cards. With Father’s Day coming we are challenging you to make either a Father’s Day card, or a card more suitable for a guy. For this challenge I used an adorable stamp by Dr. Digi’s House of Stamps called, Summer Holidays.” I coloured the image using my Spectrum Noir markers. I fussy cut him out and put him aside. Next using a retired map background stamp by JustRite I stamped a piece of 4.25 x 5.5 white and kraft card stock. I coloured the backgrounds with Distress Inks. I made one card suitable for a Happy Retirement card and the other to wish someone a great holiday.
