Wonderful Xmas

Hello my crafty friends! I have another Christmas card to share with you. This one was made last year and it has already arrived to its destination, but I haven't gotten the chance to show it here yet. 

I don't use digi stamps often, because 1.) my printer is almost always out of ink, 2.) no matter what I do my ink runs if I do the colouring with distress inks and 3.) if there is ink in my printer, I am often too lazy to print digis. I find it much easier and faster to just stamp an image on the paper. All that being said, this digi I used on the card I'm about to show you was just too cute not to be used. It's been sitting in the folder on my computer for quite a while, just waiting to be used. It took me a while to finally print it (see reason no. 3 above), but eventually I did it. Luckily more than once so I can use it again this year if I feel like it. :P

Anyways, here's my card...

The image is from Whimsy stamps and it was a freebie some time ago. I coloured it with pencils. 

Papers are from Folia and Docraft. I used several different dies on this card (from LLLC, LDRS...) and I spelled Xmas with glittery alphabet stickers. Those flowers/snowflakes around the image came with the same set as the alphabet stickers. To decorate the card I used some crystals.

So much from me today. Have a beautiful day! xx

Christmas blessings

Hey there! Me again. I bet you didn't see this one coming. lol ;) Today I have another Magnolia card to share with you. It's a Christmas one. I know, I know, you saw A LOT of those in the past month, but I hope you haven'te gotten tired of them yet. lol I'm making Christmas cards all year long this year so I will have enough of them at the end of the year. Well, at least that's the plan. :P

On this card I used the cute Christmas Tilda stamp from Christmas party collection. I coloured the image with distress inks and at the end I covered Tilda's dress and shoes with Wink of Stella for some shimmering look, but unfortunately you can't see this in the photo. I made the flowers myself with white Foamiran. This thing is so much fun to play with! If you haven't already, give it a try. Shawn has a lot of colours available in the store. Papers and embellishments came from my stash. All the layers are put together with foam pads to give the card some dimension.

So much from me today. Have a beautiful day! xx

Wishing you well

Hello everybody! And happy 2018! I hope the new year started off good for you. I can't tell you how happy I am 2017 is over. It was a pretty tough year for us so I am hoping this year will be better. It started out great, let's just hope it stays this way. *fingers crossed*

Today starts the first challenge of this year on Magnolia-licious challenge blog. We have a nice and easy theme for you - anything goes. Just remember you have to use Magnolia, Stamping Bella, Whimsy stamps or CC designs stamp on your project to be in the chance to win an amazing prize from Magnolia-licious store.

I decided to make a get well card. I never have one of those on hands, but I think they can be very handy sometimes.

On my card I used Nurse Tilda stamp from Get well collection. I also used cap and little cross die that came with the collection. I did the colouring with Promarkers and pencils. Papers and embellishments came from my stash. 

I hope you will come play with us.

Have a nice day! xx

Christmas with reindeers

Hello everybody! How are you? I hope you've been enjoying the holidays so far. Did Santa left anything nice for you under the Christmas tree? Obviously I was on the nice list this year, because I was really spoiled. :) Did you get any snow for Christmas? I was hoping we would have white Christmas this year, but we didn't. I bet we'll be getting lots and lots of snow in January, when no one wants it. *sigh* My little girl got sleighs for Christmas and today we went to the place near by with artificial snow to test them. At first she was a bit scared, but after a couple of rides she was smiling ear to ear and didn't want to go home. lol 

Ok, enough chit chat. There are still a couple of Christmas cards I made this year that I would like to share with you. Today I want to show you this one...

I was very pleased with how this one turned out. In fact, I think it turned out better than I expected it to to be honest. I used some non-christmassy papers from Prima and lots of die cuts that I received from my friends. For the center of my card I used the beautiful Christmas tree rubber stamp which I embossed with Ranger's gold embossing powder. Around the image I sprinkled some frantage. Love that thing! I embellished the card with some lace.

Layers are raised on foam pads, which give the card some dimension.

I hope you like my today's card. Have a wonderful holiday season and all the best in 2018! xx

Fun in the snow

Hi there! :) How are you doing? Do you have any snow where you live? We don't have any here anymore, but I hope we will get some for Christmas. *fingers crossed* The big day is just around the corner. Yay! :D Are you looking forward to it? Have you bought all the Christmas presents yet or are you doing some very last minute shopping this year? I have them all, I just need to wrap them up and put them under the Christmas tree. :)

So, today I want to share with you another Christms card I made. 

This snowman always brings a smile to my face. Isn't it adorable with that little chick on top?! Love it! I did the colouring with pencils. The small silver snowflakes around the image are stickers that I had in my stash. Papers are from DCWV. The big white snowflakes are covered with glitters and are really sparkly in person. I hope you can see this in the photo below.

In the center of two big snowflakes I added small silver snowflake sequins and pearl and in the center of the third one I glued a wooden snowman that I had in my stash. I also used some lace and smaller pearls to embellish the card.

So much from me today. Have a wonderful holiday season! xx

Christmas back in the days


Hello there! I'm back again. Yes, I know, shocking. lol Today starts the last challenge of 2017 at The Sketchy Challenges and the theme is Christmas. I know you have all been working like crazy on those Christmas cards, so don't be shy, share some with us. ;)

Here's my card...

For a change I didn't do any colouring. Instead I used this vintage printed image from Pion. Isn't it pretty? I used different papers from my stash and I embellished the card with some flowers, pearls, pearl string and crochet heart.

I hope you'll come play with us. Have a beautiful day!
Hugs! xx
