4. For the inside decoration I used graphic 45 stamps which I stamped and glued on the inside of the suitcase.
5. Added a piece of blue thread to knot everything together.
6. Stamped some small images to decorate the exterior part of the suitcase and also punched 2 tag.labels to give a final touch.7.

Autumn Foxy Card

Hello everyone,
today's project is my first project made as a Guest DT for TryStampinOnTuesday. I will be designing for them from October to December 2018. Stay tuned and check the news, they have some very cool challenges going on.

It is for Challenge #381.
Requests were to make a card using a sketch and to add Thread, Ribbon or Twine.
 So, I searched through my stash and decided to make an Autumn Card.

Well ...
Step 1 - cut a 14 x14 cm card base, I used 160g/mp2 cardstock - cream colour from DacoArt, scored it in half using the DacoArt scoring tool 

Step 2 - Stamped and colored using Polychromos pencils, the cute Foxy from DoCrafts Everyday mini clear stamp. The image is stamped on a piece of Strathmore Toned Tan 118g/mp2 sketch paper - medium surface. I blended the coloring with the blending pencil from Carand'ache and then added small drops of white ink using my Unibal Signo pen.

Step 3 - Cut 2 pieces of Hobby Flora Leaf Garland ribbon - from my stash.

Step 4 - Cut a piece of 13.5 x 8 cm of white cardstock and distressed it with Distress Oxide - Vintage Photo ink.
From the same type of cardstock I die cut a tag and embossed the sentiment using Gold Embossing powder from Whispers. Added a piece of brown thread, at the end.

Step 5. I stamped, colored and fussycut 3 acorns from the same stamp set with the sentiment. Added some Nuvo Crystal Glaze.

Step 6 - On the cardbase I added a 13,7 x 13,7 cm piece of patterned paper from Deco Time. I glued the leaves and then the white distressed piece - using double sided sticky foam. Added the stamped image, the acorns and a small piece of washi tape matching the color theme of the card. Glued the sentiment and done.

- the sketch for the card :)

Opinions are much appreciated and if you want to see more of my work, please follow this blog and check my other social media pages.
Huggies all and all the best wishes until next time! Let's stay safe!

I love fall most of all

Hello everyone,
today's post is about my first project/s made as a DT member of the Brown Sugar Challenge Blog.
Because Fall is here, this is a very autumnal project.
For this I used amazing digital stamps from Time for Tea.
I chose Nuts for you and I Love Fall.

I decided to make 2 cards after printing different sizes of the digital stamps.

Card no. 1
I made the background using Distress Oxide - Forest Moss and Distress Ink - Tea Dye, and added white acrylic splashes using a toothbrush.
I added a die cut in the shape of tree trunks - from my stash.
The images are colored using Polychromos Pencils and as a final touch I added white dots using my Uniball pencil.
The sentiment is partially embossed using the Versamark embossing pen.
Glued all together and added glossy accents for some shine.
And ta da :)
Final result!

Card no.2

For the second card I decided to make a tunnel card using a cutting die from my stash.
I used pattern paper for the background panel and digital stamp elements from the 2 sets - also colored with Polychromos and fussy cut.
I really enjoyed working with these stamps.
If you are interested in purchasing them, you will find the link at the end of this post.

Hope you like my projects and huggies all, stay safe until next time :)

Boot-ilicious Card

Hello, everyone

Today's post is about a card I made fot a DT Call for Witt & Sassy Company.
Amy provided 4 adorable digital stamps for Halloween. O chose working with the cute boot.
I made a blended background using Distress Oxides. 
For the spider web I have a cutting die and I cut some webs using black cardstock, from my stash. 
I added white tule and glued on different sides of the card.
The boot is colored using Polychromos pencils and added some glossy accents here and there. I fussy cut it :)
The boot is glued on a wobble in order to add some interactiveness.

Because I had no sentiment matching the card, I made one, written on a piece of cream card stock and distressed with oxides. 
For a final touch I draw some black swirls and some glossy accents pearls.
So ... this is the final result.
Hope you'll enjoy it
Until next time, huggies and stay safe!

Junk Journal Shabby Chic

Hello everyone,

today I would like to show you my very first Junk Journal.
It was made for a challenge for a facebook group that I am part of - Exprima-te very scrap.

The challenge was to use some supplies sent by the person launching the challenging and also scraps from our own stash. I used old cards, pieces of fabric, stickers, ephemera, magazine cut-outs, old envelopes, beads and charms, and so on.

I tried to make it as varied and complex as possible. It can be used as a journal to write impressions, quotes, thoughts etc, it can also be used as a photo album or even agenda, why not?

I made all types of pockets in which I put inserts and tags decorated with lace or patterned paper.
So, I collected all necessary supplies and started working. It took me about 2 weeks to finish it and this is the result, hope you'll enjoy it!

Huggies and stay safe until next time!

Window Pop Up Card - Rapunzel

Hello hello,
I want to share with you a very cute card I made after watching a really nice tutorial made by Jennifer McGuire .
I have had a set of stamps with fairy tale characters for some time, but have not found the mojo to make something with them. 
So, after watching the tutorial it just sparkled ...
So I started doing the card base and the pop-up element, of course I had to re-do it :)))
But then all came flowing.
So this is it!
Hope you'll enjoy it!
Until next time, huggies all and stay safe.

Fancy Flap Fold Card - Hedgehogs

Hello everyone,
to day I want to share with a you a very cute card I made for a challenge on a Facebook group - Exprima-te Very Scrap
The challenge was to make a Fancy Fold Card using circular cutting dies.
At first I thought it is going to be so hard, but after starting I realized that if you pay attention to dimensions, everything becomes pretty easy and fun to experiment.
So, I searched through my stash and found some pretty fall patterned paper so I decided to use it. Then I found some hedgehogs I have colored some time ago and it all came together.
The tutorial after I worked is here

So this is what I came up with!
Hope you'll like it and until next time, stay safe and huggies all!
