Hello Friend!

Hello firends!
 
I'm here today for my monthly card for the April Challenge over at Gerda Steiner Designs!
 
This month we have this cute Pen Pal Bear for our projects!
 
This is my card:
 
 
I used papers from Peebles. The sentiment is also from the same paper pad.
The bear is colored with Copics.
 
A sweet little card for the sweetest of friends!

CraftyHazelnut's Christmas Challenge Extra for April - Mid-Month Post.

Spring is in full bloom and I think we all need a bit more inspiration in order to be able to make Christmas cards!
 
Here at CraftyHazelnut's Christmas Challenge Extra we are used to give you some mid-month inspiration and this is mine:
 
 
I chose Season's Greetings Feet from our sponsor Bugaboo Stamps (they have a brand new shop, have you already checked it out?) colored with Copics.
I printed a quite big version of the stamp so I only needed a long card base and some striped paper to make my card!
 
My teamies have created very inspiring cards, have a look here to see them all!
 
Happy Easter my dear readers!

Christmas Card Challenge # 10 - Inspiration Photo.

 
We have an inspiration photo for you today:
 
 
A super-sweet gingerbread house!

 
Which I translated into this card:

 
I've had this rubber stamp for ages so I'm happy to use it at last! I used my watercolor pencils instead of Copics this time and added lots of glitter.
Background paper is from a magazine and the Merry Christmas sign is from a local shop.
 
As usual, we have lots of inspiration for you on the blog!

CraftyHazelnut's Christmas Challenge Extra for April.

April!
One of my favourite months! Not only beacuse it's spring, because it's warmer and beacuse it passes by quite quickly with lots of holidays but because my birthday is in April!
 
That said, let's go back to Christmas and to our CraftyHazelnut's Christmas Challenge Extra!
 
This is my card:
 
 
I chose DeDe Christmas Drink from our sponsor Bugaboo Stamps (sorry, they are moving the shop and it seemes that this digi has not yet been listed).
Background paper is from my stash so I don't remember the brand.
 Christmas seems so far away but I love to make so many cards through the year!
 
If you need more inspiration, have a look here! There's also the winner of our March Challenge!

Christmas Card Challenge # 9 - Mittens.

Welcome to a new Christmas Card Challenge!
 
It's a bright sunny morning here but we have to talk about Christmas!
 
The theme this week is: Mittens!
 
 
I made these:

 
These mittens were part of a garland but I thought they would have been perfect for papercrafts projects and this is the first one.
I love mittens and these are so cute!
 
A very quick and simple make which will add a special touch to gifts... I think I'll make more!
 
If you lack inspiration, have a look here at my teamies' creations, you'll surely be inspired!

I received this super strong Bee as I entered Gerda Steiner February Challenge.

Spring is in the air so it was a pleasure to work with these bright happy colors!
 
Background papers are from Echo Park and American Crafts, I then added the bee colored with Copics and some tiny yellow pearls.
 
I LOVE it!

Christmas Card Challenge # 8 - Silver and Gold Wrapping Paper.

Happy Sunday!
Are you ready for a new Christmas Card Challenge?
 
We have a photo to inspire you today:
 
 
In detail:

 
This is my take:

 
This little mouse was from DigiDoodle and I chose it becuase of the wrapping paper around the box which fits the theme perfectly.
 
I colored it with Copics and used a paper from First Edition as background.
 
Isn't it sweet?
