Vintage Fancy Fold Corner Card

Hello, hello
today I would like to show a project that is very dear to my heart.
I have the honor of being a member of the Taylormadecards4u Design Team.
It is like a dream come true.
Being part of this team gives me the opportunity to work with vintage related supplies and not only, being able to improve my mixed media skills.
So, for today I have a Fancy Fold Corner card which I decorated with supplies provided by Monica Taylor - owner of Taylormadecard4u. - Make sure you check her store, stunning products :)

For today's project I worked with Christmas Vintage ads and Toys and Dolls tags and ephemera.

I also used some supplies from my stash and had a blast decorating it.
I wanted to make it as a more complex card so I added an inside pocket where I put the tags, so it is a 2 in 1 card.
This is the result:

Really hope you will like it and stay tuned ... there is more to come :)
Happy holidays and stay safe!

Goha Reading Girl - project #2

Christmas is just around the corner :)
Cannot wait for it!

Today's project is made with a very beautiful 
digital stamp from Goha Digital Stamps - the reading girl. it is my second project as a DT for them and I am really enjoying these cute digital stamps.
If you want to see more of these beautiful stamps you can go here 
I chose to make a surprise slide card because I think it really pops up and it gives the image an extra something :)


So ...

1. Cut my 10.5 x 14.5 cm card base from 260 g/mp2 cardstock
2. Embossed the snowflakes and then used Distress Oxide to sharpen a little the panel.
3. Printed, colored with Polychromos the stamps, both the Girl and the tree - which I found in my stash.
4. Designed the sliding mechanism using a piece of wooden sheet and foam tape.
5. Stamped the sentiment on the pulling tab 

6. Finishing touches, glossy accents and some glitter.


And here it is!
Really hope you will enjoy it!
Happy Holidays everyone :)

Vintage girl - Christmas Card

The weather outside is starting to look pretty wintry. 
cannot wait to play outside in the snow and enjoy the holidays.
But, until then, as I started making my Christmas cards, I found some vintage pictures that I bought some time ago so I decided to use them.
A first card in the series is the one that I am showing today.
I like to experiment mixed media techniques and I am taking baby steps in using chipboard pieces. I find them fascinating. 
 Steps:
1. Cut a card base of 10.5 x 14.5 cm creamy cardstock.
2. Cut a slight smaller piece of blueish pattern paper that I distressed and decorated using stencils, structure paste, embossing powder and inks.
3. Cut some shapes using dies - some swirls and a wreath.
4. Started assembling everything together. Added some flowers and glitter, glossy accents and this is it.
Hope you'll like it :)
Until next time, stay safe and huggies all






Challenge #6 Card



Hello everyone,
today's project is a Christmas card I made for a challenge on Try Stampin on  Tuesday challenge.
I had to make a card using the Tic tac Toe sketch  and a twist given by the Double Trouble Challenge Blog 
From the Tic Tac Toe I chose: Red, Circle and Tree and the twist was to add anything that hangs.
I decided to make a shaker card and to make a Christmas round ornament ... which hangs :)
I made a 10.5 x 14.5 cm card, I used some die cuts and an embossed sentiment. Not very complicated but I really love the result.
Hope you'll like it too. Until next time, stay safe and take care.
Huggies all

Autumn Fairy

Hello everyone,

I want to share with you my first project as a DT member on an amazingly talented group Goha Digital Stamps.


I chose to work with the Autumn Fairy. It is a gorgeous digi stamp and gives you infinite possibilities to work with.

Here is how I did:

1. Cut a card base of 10.5 x 14.5 cm.

2. Printed the image on coloring friendly white cardstock of 220g. I printed the image on a A5 size.
3. Colored the image using Polychromos pencils. Even if it took me quite some time, I really enjoyed the details. I tried to blend everything as best as I could.
4. Cut an oval shape from a pinkish cardstock. 
5. Glued the Fairy using foam tape. 
6. Final touches: Glossy accents for the berries, some Nuvo drops here and there and I punched some leaves to give an extra final touch.
I did not want to add anything else because the stamp is gorgeous and I just wanted to leave it like this.
This is the final result. Really hope you'll enjoy it!
Stay tuned for next projects!
Until then, stay safe and huggies all

Try Stampin challenge #382

Autumn is amazing!

Don't you just adore the colors and smell of the upcoming winter?

Well because of this, I decided to make an autumn birthday card and because I also had the optional sketch from Try Stampin' what better reason did I need :)

For this card I experimented something.

I have had in my stash creamy cardstock with some scratchy pattern on it. A friend of mine gave me the idea to use Distress inks and a brush to emphasize the pattern on the cardstock.
So, this is what I did. 
I took Distress Oxide - Faded Jeans and Distress Ink - Old Paper and using a thick brush I just slightly brushed the cardstock. Sooo in love with the result.
Now that  I finished the background I started designing the elements from the sketch. I die cut 3 squares which had some sort of a border. Then I stamped and colored using Polychromos, an acorn, a cupcake and a sentiment.
Next I cut 2 banners and made a fish tale.

Time to assemble everything together ...

There it is:








- sketch #382 - optional - die cuts

I also enter this for the HeartCraft Paper Challenge
