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
