Love to craft September challenge


This is my design card for Love to craft challenge 14 for September: anything goes - please click on the link to see the lovely crafting of the rest of the team and to enter our challenge.

This was a commissioned card using a piece of Downton Abbey background paper (unfortunately, the light on the photo has obliterated the pattern on the right hand side ... but it was there - lol! I used offcut pieces of toning Downton Abbey papers and foiled the letterpress on to the snippet of pink shiny paper using my Todo. The flowers were from Hobby House.

Do-al(l) kreatives challenge 9 for September


This is my design card for Do-al(l) kreatives challenge 9: the beginning of autumn. Please click on the link to see the wonderful designs of the team and we hope you will join in with your entries.

I used the lovely Bugaboo Stamps fall fence image, kindly given as sponsor of the challenge. I coloured with spectrum noir pens and cut out with X cut rectangular parenthesis die, brushing lightly with distress ink before releasing from the die and mounting with foam pads to give a bit of dimension. The spotty paper is from my offcuts box, with the addition of pieces of corrugated card strips - the bottom piece wasn't long enough, but the gap is hidden by the raised up sentiment oval.

Craftyhazelnut's Patterned Paper September 2017 challenge

The background papers were from an Anna Griffin set bought some time ago - the paper on the right has flocking on it - very touchy-feely. The rose was black foiled and cut on the todo and mounted on to two mats cut with todo art deco dies. Ribbon, flowers and greeting from stash.
