Snowy hugs

Hey hey! I have some extra free time and I decided to use it to share a Christmas/holiday card I made. You probably know I love making those to send them out to friends and family during the holiday season. And recently I received some new super cute and fun winter stamps and I can't wait to use them, but you'll have to wait a little bit longer to see cards made with them (I'm a SUPER slow crafter and right now I am quite busy at work). Today I'll share with you another winter/holiday card that I made with one of my favourite holiday images - this adorable snowman from Stamping Bella...

I took the inspiration from the previous two cards I shared with you on my blog - I kept the same design as I used on the card that I shared with you here and I created the same striped background with washi tape as I did on the card I shared with you here. I like how colourful this card is. Might need to make another one like it, even though I usually don't make duplicate (or even more of the same) cards. As usually I did the colouring with polychromos and then I fussy cut the image and raised it on foam pads for some extra dimension.

That's all from me today. Have a lovely day! xx

Flowers for your birthday

Hello everybody! How are you doing? I'm ok, just tired. I was sick last week and even though I am fine now I still don't have a lot of energy. But I'm hoping I'll be back to my old self soon.

Today I have a bright and happy card to share with you...

I decided to keep the design pretty simple to make the image stand out more. This adorable girl is an older LOTV stamp. I coloured the image with my polychromos. The sentiment is from Clearly Besotted. I have quite some washi tape in my stash, but for some reason I barely use it. However, I used some on this card - to create the striped background. It's really quick and easy and I like the effect so I am sure I will use this "technique" again in the future. Do you like to use washi tape on your creations? Do you use it often? I didn't use a lot of embellishments on this card, just a couple of crystals.

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