Snowball fight

Hello everybody! How are you doing? I hope you had lovely holidays and that January has been good for you so far. I can't complain. Over the holiday season I took a short break from crafting so I could spend more time with my family and do more things with them. But now I'm slowly finding my way to my crafty place again. Currently I'm working on a special birthday present for a friend of ours. It is not finished yet, so I can't show it to you, but I promised to share some pictures of it when it's done. In the meantime I would like to share with you a winter card I made ...


How adorable are these pinguins?! Each time I look at this image I start smiling. They look ready for some winter fun (meaning: snowball fighting :P). I never shy away from the snowball fight, in fact, I much enjoy them. What about you?

I did the colouring with polychromos and I added some stickles on parts of the snowballs and snow. The papers are from DCWV. The only embellishments I used are a pearl and some small star sequins.


I used foam pads between the layers to give the card some dimension.

Have a lovely day! xx

Away in a manger

Hey, hey! I hope you had a lovely Christmas. We had a calm family day with some yummy food and good movies. Just the way we like it. <3

I know I'm a day late with this card, but I still hope you can enjoy it. 

For a long time I had been looking for a cute nativity stamp set, but none seemed right, but when saw this one from Paperbabe stamps I knew that was the one. I like that it gives you many possibilities on how to put the elements together.

On this card I created the scene with the holy family and a couple of animals. I raised different parts on foam pads to give the card some dimension. I did the colouring with polychromos. On a seperate piece of paper I stamped a sentiment (the sentiment is a stamp from Hobby Lobby) and glued it above the stamped scene. I finished the card up with two crystals.

I wish you a wonderful day and happy holidays! xx

Happy holidays

Hello! The big day is just around the corner. Are you excited? I can't wait. Do you have any special tradition for that day? We watch Mr Bean Christmas while eating some yummy food. :) I already have this year's menu planned (well, most of it anyways). And I've already baked most of the cookies. Just one more batch to go. Do you make all the food yourself or do you prefer to buy things in the store so your don't have to worry about that and can relax?

Have you sent all your Christmas cards yet? I have and most of them were already received. Just 2 or 3 that went overseas are still on their way. But I hope those will show up before the big day too.

The card I'm about to show you has already reached its destination. Here it is ...

I was really happy with how this card turned out. I used different stamps from MFT which I fussy cut to create a scene. I did the colouring with polychromos. On the Christmas tree decorations I added some stickles, beause I wanted to make it more festive. :) I embellished the card with some lace, die cuts and a small  wooden star and a pearl. The sentiment is in Slovenian and it means "happy holidays".


Have a magical holiday season wherever you are. All the best to all of you! xx

Wishing you rainbows and eternal happiness

Hey hey! Can you believe I am already back with another card? Shocking, I know. :P But I wanted to show you another birthday card. I made this card for 6-year-old girl. So, what do most lil girls like? I think most of them like unicorns, rainbows, pink... With that in mind I created the following card. I hope the lil one will like it.


I used the pretty patterned paper that I had in my stash for a long time. And I used these lovely stamps from Mama elephant and cloud die cuts to create a scene. I did the colouring with polychromos and I also used stickles on parts of the images, I finished the card up with some crystals. I mean, who doesn't like some bling, right?! ;)


Have a wonderful day! xx

Celebrate

Hello everybody! How are you doing? Are you ready for the most festive month of the year? I sure am. I love December. Have you put up your Christmas tree yet? We did it this weekend. Normally we do it the first week of December, but this year I bought myself a (gorgeous) 3D advent calendar that I wanted to display next to the Christmas tree so we had to put the tree up sooner. :)

I still have quite some Christmas cards to share with you, but I will do that another time. Today I want to share with you a birthday card that I made for girl that she has her birthday in the beginning of December.

Just a little reminder before I show you the card ... Have you seen my mom's blog candy? If you want to win some markers it's definitely worth checking it out. ;) Click here or on the candy picture in the sidebar to get to the candy post.

And now the card ...


I decided to keep my card simple. I decided to ink up the adorable mouse from CC designs. I love this image. It's so cute and playful. I coloured the image with polychromos, fussy cut it and then glued it on the card. For glueing I used foam pads for some extra dimension. I finished the card up with some enamel dots and the celebrate sticker.

So much from me today. See you again soon :)

Joy!

Hello everybody! How are you doing? It's getting really cold here. But then again, it's almost November already. Crazy, right? Where did the time go? 

I still have several holiday cards I want to share with you and this is one of them. But before I do that let me tell you about a fab crafty candy my mum has on her blog. 

If you want to win some of those markers click here and read what you have to do. ;)

And now let me show you my card...

I was very lucky to receive this super cute penguin stamp from a very sweet lady and I am very grateful to her. I love these adorable penguins, they bring a smile to my face each time I look at them. I hope the person who gets this card will feel the same way.

Again I used the pretty papers from DCWV and I coloured the image with polychromos. Penguins are a Whimsy stamps stamp and presents are The greeting farm stamps. I didn't use any embellishments here (shocking, I now), just a few die cuts.

I used foam pads between the layers to give the card some dimension.

That's it for today. Have a lovely day!

Mugs and kisses

Hey hey! How are you doing? Are you ready for the weekend? I sure am. We are meeting with some friends so I think it'll be a fun one. Do you have any plans?

Before I show you the card I want to tell you about a yummy crafty candy my mom has on her blog. Click here if you want to check it out. :)

So, now let me show you my card.


I used quite a lot of scraps on this card, e.g. the wite corrugated cardboard, the colourful Christmas tree paper and even the green stars are cut from those small pieces of paper. It feels really great using those small paper scraps and snippets.

The image I used for this card is from The greeting farm and it's called Holiday Anya 6. Isn't she adorable? She's one of my favourite TGF stamps. :) I coloured her with polychromos. On the mug I put a silver snowflake sticker that's been in my stash forever. The sentiment comes with the stamp too.


The triangles paper was actually just a white cardstock over which I stamped with a stamp from Paper babe stamps. I embellished the card with some round and star shaped sequins.

Have a wonderful weekend!
