Happy Birthday - PolkaDot Orchard DT project

Howdy, my friends
It is has been a pretty hectic weather and life for me :))
Hot weather and heavy rains, lots of projects to finish, new projects just around the corner.

But, for you today I have a pretty card I made using Polkadot Orchard  digi stamps.

For today's card I used the fancy kettle from the Swirly Bird Pumkin set and the lemon with a flower from the Endless Potential set.

Supplies for this card:
- 10.5 x 14.5 cm white card stock of 300 gms
- a 10x14 cm Bristol smooth paper panel on which I played Distress Oxide inks - Peacock Feathers and Mild lavender. Over the distress background I added some shades using a stencil I made from a cutting die from Tonic Kit #21
- the digi stamps  are printed and colored with Deco Craft pencils
- the sentiment stamped on a white card piece of paper cut with a rectangular cutting die - the sentiment means HAPPY BIRTHDAY in Romanian :)
- as final touches I added some sparkly gems and glossy accents

Really hope you will enjoy it and until next time, stay safe, take care and be creative!

Lavinia World Challenge - DT project

Oh my!
Do you know that feeling that you have when you know it's Christmas time and you just want to wrap out the presents and see what you got? Well it is exactly how I feel. I have been waiting for a whole month to get my first batch of stamps from Lavinia World Challenge. Unfortunately I was not able to provide a project for #1 Challenge but from now on I am on board! Yuhuuuuuu!

Stamps from Lavinia are just AMAZINGGGG! and I am such a blessed person to be part of an exquisitely creative team. All the ladies, my DT mates are sooooo talented and creative, that it is sometime overwhelming, but this is something that motivates me and makes me become better and better :)
But enough with the chit chat :) I am proudly presenting you my first project which is my piece of inspiration for #2 Challenge over at Lavinia World Challenge.

For this card I used the Fairy Wish stamp

Recipe for the card:
- 10.5 x 14.5 cm white card stock - card base, 300gms
- 10 x 11 cm Bristol smooth paper panel on which I played with Distress Oxide inks: Blueprint Sketch/ Picked Raspberry/ Scattered Straw
- After it dried I splashed it with some Perfect Pearls and a bit of water
- I heat embossed the fairy with purple embossing powder
- Added the white frame and a die cut sentiment.

And this is it! Really hope you will enjoy it.

Passport to Summer Blog Hop - Taylormadecards4u DT project

So ... June already? Ohhh my, time does go by.
But, let's see the full half and be positive. If it is June, then holidays and sunny days are coming! yeyyy.

I am always excited and ready for a new adventure. Sometimes I prefer travelling inside Romania, sometimes, when we have the possibility, we go abroad. After leaving in Norway for two years, I realised that  there is no place like home. And still, there is one other place that has a special part in my heart ... England, and London especially. 

But, I have another surprise for you. This project is also part of a blog hop and there are chances for you to win a KIT as the one I used for my project! Exciting right? - check out the info at the end of the post :)

All you have to do is to leave a comment to this post. I will choose a winner on 12th of June :) So, feel free to leave me a comment and also check out my very talented DT colleagues. I will leave their links at the end of this post. There is also another giveaway on Monica's blog, so make sure to pay her a visit and explore her wonderful site :)

I am using the Passport to London Kit . Ever since I started being a DT member for Taylormadecards4u I have wanted to make a little junk journal with Monica's amazing kits. But every time some other idea came to my mind and I was always making something else. But for this one, I definitely had to make a junk journal. The elements in this kit are perfect for such a project.

I decided to cut different elements from one of the ephemera to decorate the front of the journal. I also used some small stamps, some lace and plastic washi tape to decorate the borders of the pages.

- small pockets and tags are perfect to add photos or messages 

- using some other bits of materials I made plenty of places to be filled with all sorts of things, like tickets, postcards etc.

- the images and the ephemera in the kit are amazing, they just complete the whole concept.

- made a small notebook o which I stamped the London Bridge :)

- aren' these just lovely? Pictures from different voyages will go just great in here :)

- I had a plane shaped brad

- some pieces from an old curtain made the perfect cover for a pocket

I really hope you enjoyed my project !


besides the London kit, there is the Passport to New York and Passport to Paris.

And there is a special offer buy 2 kits and you will get 1 FREE  - use the PPKPROMO

These are the links for all the projects, make sure you check them out :) You will not be sorry

For my project today I am using the fabulous digi stamp Cameo 3.

It is a spectacular image so I decided to take some time and color it as nicely as possible :)
I took my Polychromos pencil and had a wonderful time coloring it.

Because I did not wanted to overlay and crowd my card too much, I decided to just add a piece of pattern paper with golden patterns as a background panel. On it I added a mirror die cut shape from yellow card stock.

On the mirror die cut I glued using double adhesive foam tape, the colored image. Added some glossy accents and a paper rose in her hand, for some extra effect :)

The sentiment is from an Altenew stamp set which I stamped with black ink and then added glossy accents.

And this is it! Hope you will enjoy it.
Make sure to enter your project to our challenge and also check out Morgan's shop on Facebook, incredibly beautiful images are waiting to be colored.

Howdy my lovelies,

For you today I have another project as a DT for PolkaDot Orchard.
Slowly but surely, summer is right at the corner and hot days are soon to come, and what better to treat yourself, than a cold ice lemonade? For today I used the beautiful digi set Endless Potential

The card I made today is very simple to be made :)

Supplies - 300 g white cardstck
               - Distress Oxide inks
               - Watercolor paper
               - Endless Potential digi set
               - Twine
               - Colored pencils
               - Glossy accents

On the front of the card I made a pocket from watercolor paper on which I played with Distress oxide.
I added 3 lemon slice from the digi set, colored with Deco Craft colored pencils.

Inside the pocket, I put the white tag on which I glued the lemonade glass with the ice cubes on which I added glossy accents for some more effect :)
Seeing this, I really am in the mood of some fresh lemonade :)
