MONOTONE CHRISTMAS



Hope you are all well. 
It's time for a new challenge at Crafty Hazelnuts Christmas Challenge Blog. Each weekly challenge is "Anything Goes as long as it's CHRISTMAS" with an OPTIONAL theme, which this week is
"Use a Sticker or two or more"
Winners are chosen at random.

I have made the simplest card ever! Found these gorgeous stickers in a local shop last week and thought they would look fab on a black background. There were lots in the pack, I have just used the tree and holly leaves. I added a piece of silver ribbon, and lots of snowflake punchlines around the tree. Finished off with some Stickles for extra sparkle. I will be adding a sentiment at the bottom once my customer has decided what she wants! 
Looking forward to seeing your makes.

EMBOSSED SNOWFLAKES?


Good Morning Blogland!

Hope you are all well. 
It's time for a new challenge at Crafty Hazelnuts Christmas Challenge Blog. Each weekly challenge is "Anything Goes as long as it's CHRISTMAS" with an OPTIONAL theme, which this week is
"Make your own background "
Winners are chosen at random.
I have had a little play today, had this idea in my head and give it a go! I've used a snowflake embossing folder but not for embossing....instead I inked it up with Versamark , lay a piece of black card on it and give it a good press. I then used embossing powder and my heat gun and ended up with quite a nice background of shiny snowflakes. It's not perfect but I like it! I've layered it up on white and red card and added a die cut "Merry Christmas".
Looking forward to seeing your makes.

My "H" is HOLLY! I have used a selection of die cuts, all cut from white card, and little red pearls as embellishments.

MUM'S BUTTON CHRISTMAS TREE


Good Morning Blogland!

Hope you are all well. 
It's time for a new challenge at Crafty Hazelnuts Christmas Challenge Blog. Each weekly challenge is "Anything Goes as long as it's CHRISTMAS" with an OPTIONAL theme, which this week is
"Use a button or more"
Winners are chosen at random.

Now this card is very simple but it's also very special to me. As some of you will know, I lost my Mum last year, and this little card is dedicated to her. One of the many things she always had to hand was a button tin, which I have inherited. So I had a little rummage and found some coordinating colours to make my button Christmas tree. Finished off with a twine bow.
Looking forward to seeing your makes.

It's time for a new challenge at Crafty Hazelnuts Christmas Challenge Blog. Each weekly challenge is "Anything Goes as long as it's CHRISTMAS" with an OPTIONAL theme, which this week is

I have used my Cricut to make the scalloped circle, the church and the holly leaves, and an embossing folder to give a snowy effect. I have applied white glitter and a Happy Christmas peel-off.
Looking forward to seeing your makes.

MERRY CHRISTMAS HUBBY


Good Morning Blogland!

Hope you are all well. 
It's time for a new challenge at Crafty Hazelnuts Christmas Challenge Blog. Each weekly challenge is "Anything Goes as long as it's CHRISTMAS" with an OPTIONAL theme, which this week is
"For someone special"
Winners are chosen at random.

I have made a card for my hubby! He doesn't like any faff AT ALL so it's very simple. Base Kraft card with a few white die-cuts, and a snippet of backing paper printed with a sentiment using my pc.
I finished the card off with some doodled faux stitching.
Looking forward to seeing your makes.
