Autumn Card

Hello everyone,
Today's card is an autumn card made for a mystery envelope challenge from a secret group with some amazing ladies.
The challenge is to make a card with some supplies that we get in the mailbox each month from a different person. This month I got some very cute pattern paper with circles, 2 different types of threads, ribbon, a pumpkin sticker and a cute leaf from a nice material.
I added my own supplies: I embossed the card base with a sizzix embossing folder, I added half a paper doily, a stamped sentiment with butterflies.
This is what it came out :) Hope you'll like!

Huggies all, xoxo

Bear invitation/card

Hello, hello
I am back with a very cute project. Being a member of the facebook group called Koala T Crafts and discovering Jen Evers had a huge impact on my crafting :) I love all of her videos and ideas and it is sooo inspiring. So, starting from one of her live videos, I designed a bear project which turned out to have a double destination: it can be an invitation or it can be a card! The dimensions of the base card are 12 x 17 cm and I used mainly colored carton to do the bear.
So, I used several round dies and puncher to create the pieces. I assembled them and ta tam, a nice Ms Bear.
It is very easy to do and also fun :) I will try to make more in different shapes and colours.
If you like this project, please write me a comment, if you don't, also leave a comment :)

Happy birthday card!

Hello, hello
It's been a while since I posted but that's only because I had a looot to do. Anyway, I decided to make my post as regular as possible, so let's see how this will turn out.
This post is about a card that I made starting from an order from a dear client of mine and also starting from a monthly challenge from one of the Facebook's crafting groups that I am a member of (
The challenge was to create a Double tag card in shabby chic style. Pretty hard for me because I don't have enough experience, actually I might say I am a complete newbie. The order was to design a card for a very nice lady, turning 70. So, I prepared my materials, at least a part of them :) and I started.
I did some research first and then I started working. the template provided by the challenge had no measurements so I had to do them by myself. Not that hard :) I took an A4 card from Søstrene Grene, which by the way have some AWESOME supplies :), and measured ans scored it ij order to have the template. I die cut and stamped and decorated and ta tam :) 
Final result ...Hope you like it,

Watercolor wedding card

Hei, hei
Soooo happy that this month my Simon Says Stamp kit arrived on time :) yeyyyy
I really wanted to try out the stamps, which are GORGEOUS! You can use it in so many ways. I took a piece of white card stock, size 15 x 10.5 (which I adjusted later :) ) and stamped with archival ink - black, the flower stamp :) I then started coloring everything with my watercolor pencils. Such a perfect way to relax. After finishing the coloring I searched in my stash for some matching carton and assembled the card. This is what it turned out in the end. Hope you enjoy it, feel free to leave me comments. Thank you and huggies all

Watercolor flowers

Hello, hello
Today I want to show you a card I made and I really enjoyed assembling.  The card is made for a monthly challenge on a group of talented ladies. The topic was to create a card after a template given in which to use watercolors and flower stamps. Sooooo, I dusted my watercolors and started making a base pattern paper. i just splashed with colors and used water to combine. After that I stamped some butterflies on it and let it dry. I added a die cut circle with borders. The flowers were stamped with Versamark and embossed powder on which I added some watercolors. I assembled all and here is the final result.
Hope you like it, until next time

Wedding Card

Hi there,
Some time ago I got challenged by a client to design a wedding card for a non-conformist couple. I searched, and researched and thought and made sketches and finally I started working. I chose an easel card template and started working. The base of the card is black, as required. I put a photo of the newly weds and added a few embellishments. Nothing very fancy or opulent. I used two stickers, one with champagne glasses and one with wedding rings. Stamped and embossed a sentiment, added some white paper roses and designed a fake pocket, which lifts and they can write a message to the newly weds. Had a lot of fun doing it and I think the result turned out pretty well.

Until next time, take care!

Dream catcher card - free spirit

Hello world,

today's post is about a card I made for a monthly challenge for a scrapbooking group on facebook.
The topic was to create a card using the dream-catcher motif. I have always wanted to try to make a dream catcher, just haven't had the mojo or the time wasn't right. 
So, I dug into my stash and started creating my card. I used 4 circles - different shapes, stamps with sentiments and a butterfly.
I found a very nice piece of patterned paper lying in my scrap box so I decided to use it. I added another piece to create a little contrast. Separately I assembled the dream catcher, I overlaid the circles, stamped them, inked and so on and I also added some feathers which I first stamped and fussy cut and also 2 threads with some beads and polymer clay embellishments.

This is the final result, hope you'll like it :)

Feel free to comment, follow, express your opinion :)

Huggies all and take care! xoxo

Now, let me tell you a little about my project.

I decided to try the easy side step card.
First, I printed the beautiful Digi stamp and while I was coloring it with my Inktense and Watercolor pencils I decided that I will separate the two elements, so I fussy cut the cute little dog. After I finished the coloring, I started making the card template, not as difficult as it may seem. I decorated it with matching patterned and embossed paper. One of the papers had a sentiment written on it, so problem solved :) I glued down the two stamps and here it is.
Hope you like it and you will be inspired to give it a go!
Can't wait to see what you do!

Huggies all and take care!
