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

               - 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.

Gone Fishing - Male card vest shaped - Taylormadecards4u


Hello my lovelies,
it is already 15th of May!!! but the weather outside is pretty cold :(((
Anyway, fishing is OK in any season right? And when you can combine it with a masculine card, then you have the perfect recipe! :)
As always, Monica from Taylormadecards4u, provided this month an amazing Kit suitable for all sorts of masculine projects.

The kit is called GONE FISHING and it is a MUST for all vintage lovers and not only!


My hubby is an amateur fisherman and he loves going fishing whenever he has some free time (not much lately) :) I found inspiration while looking at his 'fishing stash'. I decided to go with the vest-shaped card. 









I cut all the papers and the ephemera from the kit and then started to assemble the vest. The base is made out of 300gms white stock on which I added the pattern paper from the kit.

The front side has a moving closing panel which block with the help of the anchor charm. I also added 2 blue buttons on the top side of the vest.





Inside I made 2 faux-pockets for small tags or small pieces of paper for messages :)
The beautiful ephemera are the perfect finishing touch for the inside of the vest.






The bigger inside panel also has a big pocket in which I inserted 2 ATC's made from the beautiful ephemera from the kit. The details on the paper are just GORGEOUS! It just makes you take your rod and go fishing.




The backside of the vest has another pocket in which messages or small photos can be added.


This kit has so many detailed pics and ephemera that give you such a positive vibe. Monica is always designing beautiful kits and images and I am sure you will have a pleasant journey if you check her site :)




Owl Thank you card - #114 Scrapy Land Challenge

Hello everyone!
It is already the middle of May ... But how the time flies by! :) 
For the #114 Scrapy Land Challenge I decided to make a slider card using stamps and dies  purchased from Scrapy Land shop

Steps:
1. Cut the card base - 300gms white card stock 10.x5 x 14.5 cm

2. Cut a panel from white Bristol paper - 10x14 cm

3. Using Versamark Ink I stamped the small leaves from the stamp set - Lawn Fawn - So Owlsome Stamps
4. White heat embossed them and then made the blended 
background using Distress Oxide inks

5. Cut the circular slider using 2 circle dies of different shapes

6. Added the tree which is from the Elizabeth Craft designs - Country scapes Woods 1 die set.

7. Stamped with Archival Ink the 2 owls and colored them with colored pencils. Cut them using the coordinating dies

8. Assembled the mechanism and added some glossy accents.

9. The sentiment is divided in 2 parts: one which is white heat embossed on a leaf from a Tonic set, but you can use any other type of leave you have and the part that is at the bottom is also white heat embossed on a piece of black card stock.

And this is it!

Happy Monday everyone :)

I am not drinking coffee anymore but I still love the smell of fresh coffee in the morning :)
Today's project is a recycled paper bag which I turned into a coffee bag package.

So, my project today:
1. Took a paper bag for presents. It is a brown colour one so it makes it perfect for the altering process.
2. Took some tissue paper from my stash, wrapped it in small pieces and then just glued them randomly to cover the front of the bag.
3. Using a coffee bean stencil and brown structure paste I added some beans here and there.



4. Added some washi tape stripes for some color effect :)
5. Using the tag set i made two bigger tags using lace, thread, buttons and Ditsress Ink - Vintage Photo - to distress the edges.
6. Using a border puncher I punched the lower edges of the bigger labels from the set.




7. Punched two holes on the upper side of the bag and added some rope to close the bag. For a more coffeeish effect I added the small spoon charm :)

Hope you will enjoy it, leave me a comment and make sure you check the links I left in this post. :)

Vintage Coffee card - Taylormade cards - Coffee Loving Blog Hop

Howdy friends,

I have another project for you that I am entering into the Coffee Lovers Blog Hop.

My project for today is a complex card, it can be a card but also a mini album :) Lately i have been really finding this type of cards pretty appealing for my creative style.
My project today is made with supplies from Taylormadecards4u. In the shop section you can find plenty of goodies for your project, Monica is a master of vintage ephemera and kits, just perfect for any occasion.

For this card, I used the 

     Vintage Coffee Advertisement Trade Cards.



It is such a versatile set, you can use it from making tags up to junk journals and not only. :)






Dimensions: 15 x 15 cm and the card base is from 300gs/sqm white cardstock.
I added some a piece of pattern paper from Kraft card stock with little black hearts on it.
I distressed a piece of paper doily and glued it on the base panel.







From a yellow piece of cardstock, I designed a small pocket on which I played with a coffee beans stencil and some Nuvo Mousse. The bigger pocket has an open band on which I inserted 2 small tags.
The small little tag album is made with ephemera from the set. They are tied with a brad.


I used the ephemera from the set to design the front panel. The two girls are just adorable and they are perfect for such a card. Added some paper flowers and some creamy thread, 3 sequins and there it is. 

Make sure you check out the store, there are amazing products and some of them are on sale.
You can also check out the blog hop for amaziinnggg projects :)

Feel free to leave me a comment whether you like my card, or not :)

Until next time, stay safe and take care!

You are Tea-rrific - Poplkadot Orchard coffee blog hop

Howdy friends,

For you today I have a Tea-related card which I made using beautiful stamps from PolkaDot Orchard.
I used the It.s Your Day Digi Set.

I enter my project in the Spring/Summer Coffee Lover's Blog Hop. Make sure you check it out!

Tea is my favourite brew since I quit drinking coffee. I love all flavours and combinations and having a cup of tea and crafting is always a great moment of the day.


My card for today is a shaker one.

Steps :

1. Cut a 15 x 15 cm card base from white card stock of 300g/sqm

2. Cut the base panel from 220g white card stock at 14x14 cm. 

3. Using white embossing technique I randomly white embossed tea bags all over the panel.

4. Using Distress Oxide I coloured the panel in order to give it the impression of tea stained paper.

5. Printed and coloured the digi stamps, the teapot and the cup. Colouring was made with Polychromos pencils.

6. Using a shaker die I cut the shape on the base panel. Using small beads and sequins, I made the shaker part and assembled it as if the teapot is pouring the tea in the small cup.

7. Added the lace die cut from golden mirror card stock just like a table cloth and also a small plate under the tea cup.

8. Made a frame for the base panel from the same golden mirror card stock.

9. Added the sentiment from the digi set and some final touches using glossy accents and Nuvo drops.


And this is the final result. 
Hope you will enjoy it!

I've fallen for you - Heartcraft Paper DT project

Hello my lovely friends!


Even if it is a rainy and chilly day outside, my card for Heartcraft Paper May 1st brings plenty of colour and flowers :)
As you are already used, the beginning of the month is the beginning of a new challenge over at Heartcraft Paper.
I decided to work with the lovely I've fallen for You digi stamp.

It is quite a simple card but I think it is perfect for a wedding celebration or marriage anniversary.

Steps in creating the card:

1. Cut the card base of 10.5 x 14.5 cm - 300g/sqm white card stock

2. Cut a pattern paper panel of 10 x 14 cm - I have been having this paper for a very very long time and now I thought that it is perfect for my card

3. Printed and coloured the leaves using Promarkers alcohol markers

4. Made a frame using thick glossy white card stock and when I assembled I decided to add a vellum panel on the back. I think it gives a very cute effect, it is like a wedding painting :)

5. As final touches, I added 3 heart-shaped gem stones, some glossy accents and the sentiment.


Feel free to check out Monica's shop where you will find these cuties and many many more!
Until next time, satay safe, take care and be creative!
Huggies all!
