Thinking of you

Heya! It's weekend! And nearly time for the spookiest night of the year. Are you ready? Halloween isn't big here, but we will still carve a pumpkin or two. Should be fun. :) I don't like horror movies, so I will skip those this year, but maybe I'll make some "mummy sausages" or something like that just for fun.

Today I want to share with you a sympathy card that I made for a friend of mine. 

I find sympathy cards hard to make. I want them to be elegant and don't want to use a lot of layers and embellishments on them. For this one I only used some lace, flowers and crystals. I used the "Thinking of you" sentiment from Coffee is my liquid therapy stamp set. Design paper came from my stash.

Thank you for stopping by today. Have a wonderful weekend! xx

Hello my crafty friends! I'm here again. :) I've been blog hopping a bit in the last few of days and if I haven't left a comment on your blog, hopefully I will be able to do it in the next couple of days. I've been pretty busy lately with this thing called "life", so my crafting time has been a bit limited, but I still managed to make another Christmas card. 

I don't know if you've heard, but about a week ago two new stamps from The Greeting Farm's SSSC were released and I just couldn't wait to ink them up. One of those I used on my today's card. 

I love this adorable angel. Such a cutie.This image is called Bless and you can find it here. I coloured the image with Promarkers and pencils. On the halo and on the wings I used some diamond stickles.

I decided to keep this card simple. I only used some blue and white cardstock and a piece of star design paper from Folia. I heat embossed the sentiment and I used embossing folder on banners and blue strip of paper at the bottom of my card. I decorated the card with some pearls.

Angel and sentiment were raised on foam pads for some extra dimension.

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

Getting ready for holiday season

Hey hey! Brrr, it's getting cold here. At some places they have already received first snow of the season. That was early!!! We still haven't gotten any in my town, but the temperatures are getting lower and lower, so I guess it's just a matter of time. 

Today I'm back with another Christmas card. I'm planning to send out many Christmas cards this year, so I better stock up. If you want a card from me too (and haven't said so on my FB page), let me know and I will send you one too. :)

I've decided to colour one of the old(er) Christmas images. I really like these adorable mice - these are definitely the only mice I find adorable and am not afraid of. Lol 

To make this card I used gorgeous papers from DCWV's Winter magic paper pad. To embellish the card I used some crystals, lace, pearls and flowers. The silver stars you see peeking from behind the flowers are from Crafty ribbons. 

I did the colouring with distress inks and I covered poinsettia with Stickles. I love me some extra bling!! He he :D

So much from me today.

See you again soon. Hugs! xx

Spooky fun

Heya! Welcome to October! ;) Are you getting ready for Halloween? We don't really celebrate Halloween in my country, but we might still carve a pumpkin or two. Other than that we won't do anything special. 

At the TGF blog we have a perfect challenge for all of you who like this holiday - Spooky fun! There are some awesome stamps at the TGF store that are perfect for Halloween. I decided to use Peek a boo stamps and matching dies.

I decided to keep the card simple. I used some green paper that I had in my stash for a while. Over it I used a creamy white paper and I used mesh stencil and watercolours to create the pattern on it. Then I just cut some more strips of paper and randomly glue them on my card. Image is coloured with pencils and I added some sequins to decorate the card.

I hope you will come play with us this month.

Have a great day! xx
