Diamond Easel Card

Bun găsit, dragii mei
Proiectul de azi este o felicitare cu îndoitură specială pe care am realizat-o pentru una din provocările de pe grupul Exprima-te Very Scrap

Este o felicitare relativ simplă. Formatul nu e complicat de realizat, provocarea apare în momentul în care te apuci de decorat. 

Tutorialul inspirational este acesta

Pentru că de anul acesta mi-am propus să folosesc cât pot de mult din hârtia cu model pe care o am - muuuullllttaaaaaa :)))) - am decis să folosesc o hârtie cu nuanțe de mov și floricele.



Elementele de decor sunt ștampile dintr-un set de la Stamperia. Imaginile ștampilate sunt colorate manual cu markere pe bază de apă.
Cele două păsări sunt tăiate cu matrițe dintr-un set de la X-Cut. Bulinele sunt făcute cu Nuvo Drops.





În interior am decorat cu fluturași și frunze decupate cu matrițe și colorate cu pigment Distress.

Elementul de decor din mijloc este din setul de ștampile Stamperia, pe care l-am ștampilat, colorat și decupat manual. A fost un accident fericit :))) În momentul în care am pliat partea de sus a felicitării am observat ca se potrivește perfect cu tăietura din element și astfel am punctul de sprijin ideal :) 






Sper să vă placă felicitarea mea și de ce nu, puteți încerca și voi! 

Până data viitoare, spor și inspirație!
xoxo

Thank you - Lavinia World Challenge #18


How is everyone doing? Is 2020 ok so far? Hope it is. :)

Today is also the start of a 
 new challenge over at Lavinia World Challenge  - #18.


I decided to play with my mini gelli plate and try to experiment different mediums. 
For my project I used the Feather stamp, which I recently received and I can tell you it is on my top 3 stamps from Lavinia. Is is quite big and you can use it in so many ways!


Card recipe

1. Cut the base from a 300/gsm white card stock. 

2. Played with Shaded Lilac Distress Oxide on my gelli plate on which I added some Perfect Pearls in splashes. I then put the front panel - white card stock - Smooth Neenah

3. Dried it very well and then I stamped the feather with Archival Ink - black.

4. Die cut the sentiment from black card stock and made the little bow from blue and white twine thread.

5. Glued everything in place.

I absolutely love the effect of the perfect pearls on the background :)

And now it.s all done :) What do you think?
You can always give it a try.

Wishing you a magical day - Scrapy Land Challenge #130



hello my dear friends,
it is time for a new challenge over at 

We are at challenge #130 :)

I am a declared fan of fairies and every time I have the chance, I use them in my projects, either cards or albums. 
All things considered I decided to play with my Tonic Studios Kit #27, which has amazing supplies, perfect to play in such a variety of ways. It's ok if you don't have the kit, you can use any other die to make this card. As long as you have some leaves of flowing flowers you are good to go :)






Card Recipe:

1. Card base - 300 gsm white card stock - plied dimension 10.5 x 14.5 cm 

2. Front base panel - 10 x 14 cm Naturel 250g/m2 from Cairefontaine, it is absolutely gorgeous and I have been having it in my stash for more than a year and never used, but I will do it more often from now on. 

3. Cut 4 pieces of sprigs from the kit using white card stock and then played with distress ink green and orange. After they dried I glued them down in the shape of a wreath.

4. In the middle I stamped the sentiment with blue versafine ink and then heat embossed it with clear embossing powder.

5. Cut the fairy from silver card stock and added her on the right bottom side of the wreath.

6. As final touches - some Nuvo drops here and there and there it is!


 It is pretty easy and simple to make so you could easily give it a try!





Scrapy Land
Now it is your turn to play along


The theme is always ANYTHING GOES using any brand of die that Scrapy Land sells.

 There will be ONE winner and they will receive a
$15 Gift Certificate
to go shopping at Scrapy Land!!

The winner will be chosen by random.org and the Designers will still chose the Top Three and the Honorable Mentions. 

Scrapy Land carries over 55 brands of dies, so chances are you have a few of the brands in your stash!  You can see all the brands carried under the Products category.

Please link back to this Scrapy Land Challenge and include the link to this challenge on your blog post.  It would also be extremely helpful if you would list the brands of dies used in your project.  (Sometimes we can't tell if an item is a die cut or chipboard.)

take care and happy crafting until next time :)

Home sweet home - GetCreative Challenge

Hello 

It is time for CH. #87- SOMETHING NEW, the FIRST CHALLENGE OF 2020 and my first one as DT member! Soooo excited to be here :)

Hi and welcome to our first challenge of 2020 here at Get Creative Challenges! We hope you will join us in this month's challenge & remember you have a whole  month to play along! Our sponsorship has changed; we are now only having 1 sponsor per challenge instead of 3. So this means there will only be 1 prize winner per challenge now. There will still be a Top #3. There is still no prize for the Top #3 just a blog badge.


Now onto the challenge. The theme is "Something New". Our sponsor is Dr. Digis.

https://www.doctor-digi.com/

Prize is 2 images of the winner's choice!



I have an inspirational project for you. I used the Gnome sweet gnome digital stamp. It is such a cutie :)


I printed and colored the stamp on kraft card stock. I used Faber Castel colored pencils. 
Added the frame from die cuts and embossed the sentiment :) As final touches, I added some glossy accents. Hope you will enjoy it and give it a try! 
Make sure to check out our sponsor's website where you will find amazing stamps to work with :)

Until next time, take care, stay safe and be creative! Huggies :*

Happy new Year! - Scrapy Land Challenge #129


Happy New Year everyone! Hope you had a blast celebrating winter holidays. 
We are starting the year with a creative challenge over at 

It is time for challenge #129. 
Hope everyone will have a very creative and inspirational year :)

My inspiration for you is a winter card, last of the series for this season. For my card I used the Christmas Lantern cutting die from Yvonne Creations, which is for the moment unavailable but you can used any other winter related card.





 And also leaves from Mini Holiday Greens from Tim Holtz.







Card Recipe:

1. Card base - 300 gsm white card stock - plied dimension 10.5 x 14.5 cm 

2. Front base panel - 10 x 14 cm ivory card stock cut with a border cutting die on which I played with some distress ink.

3. Cut the lantern from red card stock and glued it on the base panel. I decorated it with some yellow glitter and Nuvo drops.

4. On the top of the lantern I added some leaves


Decided to leave it as it is without a sentiment. :) 

And finish! It is pretty easy and simple to make it so you could easily give it a try!
