2015 Christmas Card Series - Card No 7


Hi, everyone!
Today, I present to you card no 7 in my 2015 Christmas Card Series.
It all started with a black cardstock and the Lawn Fawn "Deck the Halls" stamp set :) .


I love the look of white on black, with a little red for a Christmas card. To me, this combination is such an elegant look. So, I decided to heat embossed, using white embossing powder, the longest tree branch all around the edges. After that, I stamped, using the White Pigment Ink Pad, some of the smaller tree branches. 
Then, I added red rhinestones and red glitter (with Glossy Accents on top of them ;) ) to give the impression of holly berries.


After that, I stamped and heat embossed, using gold embossing powder, the "Jolly Holly Days" sentiment from the same stamp set "Deck the Halls".
When all this was done, I added the black panel on a black base cardstock and my card was finished. :)

With this card I'll enter in the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge - Anything Goes.


I hope that you got inspired and that you'll start a Christmas card right now :)) ... I'd love to see what you'll create.
Until next time,
xoxo

2015 Christmas Card Series - Card No 6


Hi, friends! 
You are probably wondering what's happening, since this is my second post today :)) .
No worries, I'm here only for my 6th Christmas Card.


For my card I used 2 stamp sets. One is from Simon Says Stamp! and it's called "Trick or Treat" and the other one is from Lawn Fawn and it's "Deck the Halls".
I know, the dog from the Halloween stamp set doesn't look like the one from my card, but that's Jennifer McGuire's fault :)) ...
I'm sure that many of you are following her and that you remember her card from last year, where she altered the image so she can use it as a Christmas image. Even if you know what I'm talking about or you don't, I'm still gonna leave the link for her blog post and there you'll find a video with the transformation. You can check it here.
And this is my take on the image. I've colored it with Faber Castell Eco Pencils and I've added Glossy Accents on the lights.


Then, on a piece of kraft cardstock, I stamped the snowflakes from the "Deck the Halls" stamp set using the white ink pad from Simon Says Stamp!
After that, I heat embossed the sentiment from the Lawn Fawn set on a piece of green cardstock.


I glued everything together, I added some red flat pearls and my card was done.


I hope you like my new Christmas card and that you'll try to alterate your stamped images, too.
Until next time,
xoxo

The scary meeting between Fall Queen & Spooky Pup - Tiddly Inks Handmade Card



Hey, crafty friends! 
I'm here with a new Tiddly Inks card and this time it's a Halloween card. 
Also, today is Fab Friday over at Tiddly Inks blog and the winner for Challenge #167- Let's Get Krafty! was announced. So you should check to see if you are the lucky winner, or in the amazing top 3 :)


And now, let's talk about my card :)


For this card I've used not one, but two cute and sweet digital stamps:  Fall Queen and Spooky Pup.


I've colored it with my Inktense Pencils and Faber Castell Eco Pencils. This time I have a list with my color combos, maybe it'll help you someday ;) ...

Pumpkins: Cocoa (FC), 1740, 1800, 260, 300, 250 (Inktense)

Dog - Costume: 750, 730, 610 (Inktense), Red Violet (FC)

I wanted to add some more details, especially on the vellum, so I decided to stamp some little spiders from a Halloween stamp set "Trick or Treat" from Simon Says Stamp! When I saw how cute they are, I decided to stamp some on the pattern paper, as well. And then, I stamp two bats, from the same stamp set, in the corners to complete the design that I wanted.


As you can see in the photos, I've used some Stickles on the pumpkins and leaves and on the orange lines from the pattern paper :)


With this card I want to participate in the Monday challenge, over at Simon Says Stamp blog, The Monster Mash.


Thanks for stopping by and don't forget to come back for my next card :)

Fab Friday - Friends Forever Tiddly Inks Handmade Card


Hey, crafty friends! I'm here with a new Tiddly Inks card. Yesterday was Fab Friday over at Tiddly Inks blog and the winner for Challenge #166- Don't be Square 
was announced. So you should check to see if you are the lucky winner, or in the amazing top 3 :)

And now on to my card :)



For this card I've used one of the cutest digital stamp that I've seen in a while.


I've colored it with my Inktense Pencils, but since I printed them in a small size, I wasn't really able to play a lot with different colors and shadows, but I'm still happy with the result.


For that little scene I've used some of my scraps. I really like to find new ways to use my big pile of scraps and this was a really nice way to do it.


Then, I've traced with a white gel pen some faux stiching lines, making the tag a bit more interesting ;) .
After that, I've stamped a brown cardstock with a wood grain stamp, using the white ink pad from Simon Says Stamp.


I hope you like my new card and that you'll check all the other awesome projects that the DT has prepared for you.
If you enjoyed my post, please leave a comment! I'm always so grateful for all your lovely comments. They really make my day brighter. Thank you!

2015 Christmas Card Series - Card No 4


Hi friends! 
I'm back today with a card that I made with another cute freebie from Create a Smile Stamps. You can find all the freebies here.
This one is a Christmas card and it's my 5th card in 2015 Christmas Card Series. (oh, I do use the word "card" a lot :D )


With this card I want to participate in the November Guest Designer Call over at Create a Smile Stamps blog.
Also, I would love to participate in the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge: Anything Goes.


For coloring I used my Inktense Pencils, 3 Coloursoft Derwent pencils, Faber Castell Eco pencils and 1 Stabilo aquacolor.

I have a list with the colors (from dark to light):
Skin: Brown, Peach, Sand (Faber Castell)
Nose: C120, C200, C190 (Coloursoft Derwent)
Santa's Costume: 1920 (Inktense), Blue Violet, Violet Red, Red (Faber Castell)
Shoes: 2200, 2120 (Inktense)
Santa's Bag: 1730, 1740 (Inktense), 1600/615 (Stabilo Aquacolor)

For the background I used a stencil from ClearScrap and the white ink pad from Simon Says Stamp. 
The sentiment is heat embossed using white embossing powder, as well as the white part on Santa's costume. 
Although you can't really see it in the photos, I used a lot of Wink of Stella on this card :) (on the snowflakes, on Santa's beard and on Santa's bag). Also, I've used some Stickles on The white portion of Santa's costume and on his belt.
And on his big nose I've added Glossy Accents.
A couple of sequins, all this mounted on a pattern paper from My Mind's Eye and my card is done :) !


I hope you enjoyed my new card and that you'll try and participate in the November Guest Designer Call. Maybe you'll be the lucky one.
Okay, see you next time!

Monster Birthday CAS card - Create a Smile Stamps




Hi friends! 
Today I want to show you a card that I made with a cute freebie from Create a Smile Stamps and with a sentiment freebie from them.
If you want to save it to your computer and color it, you can find it here


With this card I want to participate in the November Guest Designer Call over at Create a Smile Stamps blog.
Also, I would love to participate in the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge: Anything Goes.



I really wanted to give the impression that the 3 monsters are different, so the middle one I printed it bigger and I added only one googlie eye :). Plus I colored them differently.


For coloring I used my Inktense Pencils, 2 Coloursoft Derwent pencils and one Faber Castell Eco pencil. 
I have a short list with the colors from dark to light):

Pink: 600, 520 (Inktense), C200, C190 (Coloursoft)
Yellow: 240, 230, 210 (Inktense)
Blue: 840, 1200 (Inktense), Turquoise (Faber Castell Eco)

For the dots and teeth I used a White Signo gel pen. Then I decided that they need a little something more, so I added a black dot as a nose to every single one of them.


The yellow monster is fuzzy cut and mounted on some foam tape. 


On their legs, hair and on the sentiment I added some Wink of Stella. After that I added a strip of pattern paper, some sequins and I mounted this panel on some grey card stock.
And my card is done :).


I hope you enjoyed my new card and that you'll try and participate in the November Guest Designer Call. Maybe you'll be the lucky one (although, I kinda hope that the lucky one will be me :D ).
Okay, see you next time!
