Guest Designer for Playing in Paradise 98

I was honoured to be invited to be a Guest Designer for Playing in Paradise 98 where the challenge is to use something new.

I decided to make a tri-fold square card, using new papers from Authentique peaceful collection.

For the front I used new stamps that I had purchased while on holiday in Eastbourne but hadn't previously inked them. The doorway is from PaperArtsy HP1011 set, the script from HP1007 and the flower shapes from HPXT02, all inked with memento tuxedo black. Black soot distress ink was used to brush the edges and across the doorway. The corrugated flower shapes are from Hobbycraft.

 I stamped the middle panel with elements from PaperArtsy HPXT02, again inking with tuxedo black and brushing edges with black soot.

So everything used was new. Please visit Playing in Paradise 98 to see the wonderful creations members of the regular team have made.


  1. You've done a great job with this card! I love B&W and I love papers with spots, and I do like the stamped door image.

  2. I love the monochrome look of your card Hazel, the black and white are
    stunning. Thank you for joining us as Guest Designer this week.

  3. Thanks for being our Guest Designer this week Hazel. Love this black and white accordion fold mini.

  4. Wonderful trifold card. Those papers are gorgeous. Thanks so much for being our guest designer this week.

    Hugs, Dawn
