Crafterhazelnut's Patterned Paper February 2015 challenge

Craftyhazelnut's Patterned Paper February 2015 Challenge

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

A gentle reminder: Please make sure you read the following (there are no other rules) because there have been a few entries creeping in where plain card stock has been used to cover the card blank with very little evidence of much patterned paper - after all, the whole idea of this challenge blog is to use patterned paper.

The monthly challenge will always be 'anything goes' as long as you cover your card blank or other creation with patterned paper or card, using any size or shape that you wish - there are no other rules! You can add embellishments if you wish, stamp, emboss etc - but you must cover your card blank with patterned paper or card. The creation can be for any occasion.

You can leave a small border around your paper when you adhere it to the card blank if you wish, but only a small border! And your creation doesn't have to be a card, it can be any project as long as it is covered with patterned paper.

You will be able to enter as many times as you wish during the month and link with as many other challenges as allow you to do so.

As I have an abundance of patterned paper - 12 x 12, 8 x 8, 6 x 6, A4 - I'm giving a prize each month to the randomly chosen winner. I'm willing to post anywhere in the world, so that means that anyone can enter regardless of where you live.

I have so much patterned paper that I have no idea why I keep buying more! Yes, the paper I've used for this month's card is new ... but I bought two packs, so there's one for me and one to give away as the prize for this month.

This is the prize for this month's challenge (the winner will, of course, get an unopened pack):

A pack of Docrafts Papermania Capsule Collection Parisienne Blue
8" x 8" paper pack - 32 individual designs

It's worth checking because it might be you!

I hope you will join in again for this new challenge and that the news will spread even further so that others come and join us too.
February 2015 challenge

If your cards happen to fit the theme for the week on my CHNC challenge blog, please feel free to add there as well and also for my CHNC challenge extra blog, which is always 'anything goes as long as it's Christmas.

Remember that for this Patterned Paper challenge
cards can be for any occasion

So, for my card I used a variety of papers from the pack of Docrafts Papermania Capsule Collection Parisienne Blue with some matching washi tapes, an accordion flower with button and a birthday sentiment. The stamped image is one of my favourite Penny Black stamps 'letters and flowers' inked with memento Paris dusk. More details here on My Crafty Outlook, including the sketch that I followed.

  6. Hi Hazel, not entirely sure if this counts #184 as the triangle shape of the card only has cut outs of the butterfly design paper on it.. Let me know if it is not and I will remove . hugs Mrs A.

  7. Hi Hazel, thanks for the challenge - I just LOVE patterned paper and have enough to paper the whole world several times over LOL! Love your card - the Papermania Parisienne blue paper is so pretty (blue is my favourite colour) - and great projects by the DT - thanks for the inspiration.
