Fluffy snowman

Hey there! Phew, three posts in a row. I'm on a roll here. lol I don't have a card for you today though. Instead I want to show you one of the fluffy snowmen that I made. I really enjoy making them because they always make me smile and I made quite a few this year again. This is just one of my "snowmen army". ;)

I won't go into details on how to make these here because ther are quite a lot tutorials online; if you want to see how they are made just google "sock snowman".

To decorate this little fella's hat I made a flower out of foamiran and glued it on the hat.

To make this card I used foamiran, AC3 dies from Rosy Dot and pearl button for the center.

Have a wonderful day!

Dressed for festivity

Heya! I am back with another card. This is the one I made for the new challenge at Magnolia-licious. This month we want to see hearts or stars on your card.

Here's what I made...

I used beautiful Maja Design and Lemon Craft papers and I paired them with this super cute Dresed for festivity Tilda stamp. I stamped the image on neenah paper and coloured it with pencils. To make the pretty border I used Edwin lace.  I decorated the card I used some crystals and silver sequins.

I hope you will play with us.

Happy December

Hey everybody! I'm a bit late with this post... Sorry about that. On Saturday a new Challenge started at The Sketchy challenges blog. Theme is Christmas and you have the whole month to play with us. :)

Here's my card...

I used Lemoncraft papers and 2 different Magnolia stamps. I coloured this adorable Tilda with distress inks and I added some liquid applique on the white part of the sock to make it look more fluffy. Behind the Tilda I stamped snowflakes and embossed them with gold embossing powder.

To decorate the card I used some pearls and gold vellum snowflake stickers which I raised on foam pads for some extra dimension.

I hope you will play with us his month! xx

Ananas Tilda

Hey everybody! 

A new challenge just started at Magnolia-licious blog. You have the whole month to play along and this time we would like to see something sparkly on your card - can be glitter, crystals... Anything that sparkles. :) And don't forget you need to use either Magnolia or Polkadoodles image.

Here's my card...

I made this card for my friend's birthday. I really like this sentiment - it's a Gummiapan stamp and I just stamped the sentiment several times and then cut parts of it out so I could use it on my card as I wanted to. I stamped Ananas Tilda on neenah paper and coloured her with pencils. Papers are from MME. I decorated the card with some crystals, lace and flower shaped sequins.

I hope you will come play with us. Have a beautiful day! xx

It's twins

Heya! How are you doing? I've had pretty intense week so far. So much has been going on... On top of everything I had an accident the other day and now I can't craft. Boohoo! With holidays fast approaching this definitely isn't something I need, especially since I still need to make maaaaany more Christmas cards to send to my friends and family members. How are you doing with your Christmas cards? All done yet? Or haven't even started? Or maybe you are half-way through? Well, not matter how far alon are you (or even if you haven't started yet), you still have some time to play with your Christmas supplies. ;)

The card I am about to show you is not Christmas though. It's acutually a baby card. :) One of my friends gave birth to twins and I made this card for her.

She had two boys, so I chose greenish and yellow tones on my card. I used papers from Me to you and some leftover paper scraps from my stash. For the "frame" I used washi tape. I covered a piece of white cardstock with washi tape and then just used rectangle dies to get the shape I wanted. 

Clearly besotted has this adorable stamp set called "Hot stuff" and I thought these cute dragons from the set were perfect for my card. And what's even better, there are sentiments in the stamp set that are perfect for when someone gives birth to twins. At first I wanted to use "double trouble" (naughty, I know lol), but I changed my mind and used "double the joy" instead.

To decorate the card I used some pearls, sequins, ribbon, gems.

That's it from me for today. Have a wonderful day! xx

I'd like to enter my card to the followinf challenges:
Simon says stamp (Wednesday challenge): Anything goes
Word art Wednesday: Anything goes

Hello everybody! How are you doing? I hope everything is fine with you. I've been having a pretty busy week, so I am looking forward to the weekend.

Today I would like to share with you a birthday card. I'm participating in a birthday card swap so I need to stock up on those. ;)

For this card I used gorgeous Maja design papers and some white cardstock. I made the flowers myself - to make them I used white foamiran, white pearl stamens and RosyDot AC3 die.

I decorated the card with some pearls, trim and sequins. To add some dimension to my card I used foam pads between different layers.

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

Cardz TV: Anything goes

Happy 60th birthday

Good morning everybody! How are you doing? Did you do anything special this weekend? We decided to take advantage of the beautiful sunny day and go on a short trip on Saturday. It was really nice. And yesterday we went for a long(er) walk around the town. 

I want to remind you that we have a sketch challenge going on at The sketchy challenges blog. I hope you will come and play with us.

Here's the card I made...

One of my relatives celebrated his 60th birthday in September and this is the card I made for him. Since it was a card for a guy I didn't want to add too many embellishments, but I couldn't stay away from pearls. *ooops*

For the card I used Maja design papers and different die cuts to make the card more "elegant". I think this card is pretty self explinatory, but if you have any questions, feel free to ask. :)

Have a beautiful day!
