Lots of sparkle

Hi everybody! Wow, can you believe that January has almost came to an end? I don't know about you, but I have the feeling we were celebrating Christmas just a week ago. Time's running by so quickly! How has the first month of 2018 been for you? We got some great news, some good news and some bad news, so it's been a mix of everything. But it's been mostly good, so I'm not complaining. I'm just hoping it'll continue the way it started.

Today starts a new challenge at The Sketchy Challenges blog and this time we have  sketch for you. I like sketches, but I have to admit this one was a tough one for me, because it was so clean and simple. I kept wanting to add layers. But at the end I managed to resist the temptation and so I made this card.

Earlier this month I received a happy mail from my sweet friend (thank you Ren!) and among all the amazing things she sent me was also this amazing glittery washi tape. I absolutely love it. I used it to create background on my card. Then I cut a piece of white cardstock and embossed it with cuttlebug's embossing folder. I finished the card with some pearls, glittery star sticker and glittery snowflake ornamentt. In the center of the snowflake I glued the word "joy" which I stamped on a white cardstock and cut out with my scissors.

I hope you will come play with us.

Have a wonderful day! xx

Foamiran flowers tutorial

Hello everybody! Today I don't have any card to share with you, but I have something else - a foamiran flower tutorial. :D Did you know there are lots and lots of foamiran colours available in Magnolia-licious store? For my flowers I used pink, lemonblue and mint foamiran and Magnolia stethoscope die, which is also available in Magnolia-licious store.

There are really easy and fun to make. I hope you like them and will give them a try. :) Here you can watch the tutorial...

Have a wonderful day! xx

P. S. You still have plenty of time to join our challenge at Magnolia-licious blog. We have an "Anything goes" theme right now. And you do NOT need to use Magnolia image to play with us - you can also use CC design, Whimsy stamps or Stamping Bella images. ;)

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
