Craftyhazelnut's Patterned Paper April challenge


This is my card for my Craftyhazelnut's Patterned Paper April challenge that started this morning.

A challenge that is always about using
Patterned Papers on cards

I don't know about you, but I have enough patterned papers
to keep me going for a very long time
so let's make sure we use plenty of them


This is the prize for this month's challenge



Dovecraft's Cupcake Boutique
6" x 6" Designer Paper Pack
72 sheet pack - 6 sheets of 12 designs - 150 gsm


I used papers from the Dovecraft's Cupcake Boutique (not from the pack that is being given away - that is unopened!), stamping directly on to the peach patterned paper, heat embossing with detail black powder, and masking to include three different Kanban cupcake stamps. I coloured with spectrum noir pens.

Buckwells challenge 7: colour palette


For the month of April, Buckwells Crafty colour challenge:

All or any of the colours


'We would like to see all or just one of the colours some where on your card/project. So its any tone of  yellow, pink, or green that we would like to see and you could be a lucky winner and receive 3 digi images of your choice from Lacy Sunshine who has kindly agreed to be our Sponsor for this month.'

So this is my design card using Lacy Sunshine's Gemma's Spring Flower Love andBuckwell Crafts checkout papers. I coloured the image with spectrum noir pens and die cut using one of the Spellbinders marvelous squares, using the same die to cut round the pink Buckwells paper. I used the smallest marvelous squares die (not used this before) cut and embossed for a couple of corners and added a few gems.

CHNC challenge extra for April


This is my card for my CHNC challenge extra for April. Please click on the link to see the wonderful designs of the rest of my team and we would love you to join in our challenge ... anything goes as long as it's Christmas ... and, if you think it's crazy making Christmas cards now, just think, a quarter of the year has already gone ... it makes sense to avoid panic towards the end of the year.

For my card I used Bugaboo Stamps Raggey Angel - Lay on Star which I coloured digitally in Microsoft Paint - Bugaboo are always sponsors of my CHNC challenge extras - I am so grateful to them. The background was created by printing a digital paper found on the internet. The poinsettia flowers mounted on kraft were from Poundland. Corrugated strip and gold foil strips from stash.
