Eggstra special

Howdy! How's it going? Hope you are enjoying the warm sunny weather outside. :)

The other day I went through my folders on the computer and I realized that there are still plenty of cards that I never posted online, including the one I am about to show you. I don't make a whole lot of Easter cards, but every now and then I make one or two. And when I do, I usually go and ink up the super cute stamps from The greeting farm. Which is exactly what I did here.

After all of the images were stamped and coloured I cut them out using the matching dies. Then I used the images along with some die cuts to create a scene. I did the colouring with polychromos and the lovely papers used on this card are from My mind's eye. The only embellishment I used on this card are the two yellow enamel dots.

I used foam pads on parts of the card for some extra dimension.

Have a wonderful summer! xx

Fa la la la la

Hey hey! I'm back with another card. :) This one was made for my guest designer position at the Caffeinated Christmas card challenge where the theme this month is "green". 

And the sponsor of this challenge is The Cat's Pajama's, which kindly donated a $25 gift code to the lucky winner.

I have to admit that green isn't really the colour I would often use on my cards, so it was quite a challenge for me to create a green card, but I jumped in with both feet and here is the result ...

It doesn't get much greener than this, does it? ;) It's no secret I loooove adding layers on top of layers on top of more layers :P on my cards, so I had lots of fun making this one. And when I was going through my stamp collection, looking for one that I could use on my card, I found Let is snow stamp set from The greeting farm and I knew immediately I wanted to use this adorable polar bear from the set on my card. I coloured the image with polychromos, fussy cut it and glued it on my card. The sentiment is from an old stamp set from Hobby Lobby. I embossed the sentiment with the gold embossing powder and I glued some die cuts around it to make the whole card more festive. At the end I just added some red crystals. Other embellishments that I used are a doily and a piece of pompom ribbon.

Here you can see the dimension and the lovely foiled paper I used on the card better ...

This is all from me for today. Have a beautiful day! xx
