Fan-tastic Tuesday challenge 126


This is my design card for Fan-tastic Tuesday challenge 126: anything goes with a twist ... for a child. Please click on the link to see the designs of others in the team and join in with the challenge.

For my card I've used Oddball Art Stamps Big eye girl Bonnie bookworm (Oddball are sponsoring the challenge), colouring with chameleon pens (about time I used them again). I used two of the X cut rectangular paranthesis dies to cut the image and the surrounding mat. Background papers are all from my offcuts box, including the sparkly piece of cream card that was embossed using a folder and wiped gently with gilding wax. Ribbon from stash.

CHNC challenge extra for March 2016


I originally set up my Christmas challenge blogs to help me spread my Christmas crafting throughout the year and am so glad that many crafters regularly join in with me. Two months of the year have already gone by and it's time to start the March challenge - please click the link to see the lovely festive designs by my team and we hope you will get out your Christmas crafting stuff and join in.

CHNC challenge extra is always sponsored by the very generous Bugaboo Stamps and at the beginning of the month everyone on the DT uses one of their images, kindly provided for us. So this time I've used stocking line coloured in digitally with Microsoft Paint. All papers are from my Christmas offcuts box.

Craftyhazelnut's Patterned Paper March 2016 challenge


Can you believe that today is 1 March? It's time for the new month's Patterned Paper challenge - if you're not familiar with this, please click on the link to find out what it's all about and join in with your designs using some patterned paper. While you're there, please feast your eyes on the lovely designs of my team, including two new members joining us this month.

My card for the challenge is one that I made very recently for one of my great nephews. He had recently passed his driving test, so I thought the theme would fit, not only for his 18th birthday, but also for congratulating him on passing his test.

The main background was from Kanban long ago (waiting for the right moment to use it), with a torn piece of racing cars paper from PDA  card and craft. The photos are also Kanban.
