Interactive window card

Hello friends!

Today I have for you yet another cardmaking video. This time I wanted to share with you a cool real window card that I came up with while filming 🙂

Don’t you just love it when you come up with the better idea that you had originally? I love it. For this card I had a general idea where I wanted to go with it but I am glad I came up with the actual window part I think it added a lot interest to the card. I know I would be super happy if I received an interactive card 🙂

I hope you like it and if you are curious about how it was made check out my video – as it is kind of hard to describe this mechanism – it is not difficult at all but easier to see it being done I think then read about it. I just love how the animals are so cute that you would want to let them in 🙂

Here is the video and the supply list is at the bottom of the page!

Addicted to Stamps and More

Hello friends!

Today I have for you card I made for Addicted to Stamps and More challenge’s design team this week.

I got out of my comfort zone and I created a CAS card as that is the theme this week down at ATSM!

The sponsor this week is the super awesome

bugaboo new logo

 And the prize is 7 digi stamps!
For my card I went with an idea I had in my head for a while. I bought these new stamp sets from Lawn Fawn and I realized I did not use them enough. So for this card I went with Let’s BBQ stamp set.
I coloured the images using both Pro Markers and Stabilo 68 pens. I was working on a thick watercolour paper. I then used my brush and watercoloured some grass and sky. To finish off the card I used the Lawn Fawn stitched borders die and added a little interest.

Through the Craft Room Door inspirational card

Hello crafty friends!

Today I have for you a card I made for Through the Craft Room Door challenge’s design team this week.

Sponsor this week is  Sami Stamps and the prize is $12 voucher to the Etsy shop with all the beautiful digi stamps!

For my card I used Sami Stamps digi stamp – Birthday Girl. I created the background using Distress Inks – Mustard Seed, Crushed Olive an Mowed Lawn. Then I stamped the sentiment from Avery Elle – Cake and Candles using my Archival inks Manganese Blue and Deep Purple creating an ombre effect.

I then stamped a few confetti and added a “stitched” frame using my UNI ball Signo white gel pen.

Butterflies embossed in watercolour

Hello friends!

Today I have for you a birthday card! I loved making this one and I am happy with how it turned out in the end. If you saw my previous card in my previous post 🙂 I also used these gorgeous butterflies from Bo Bunny stamp set – Flutter. Forst I stamped them using Versa Fine onyx black ink – very good ink for embossing as it takes a little longer to dry. I then heat embossed them in Wow clear embossing powder. After that I coloured the butterflies with my Stabilo 68 pens and then sprayed the whole panel generously with water (I used watercolour paper – 300 gsm ).

I cut the panel across 4 times to get these two stripes of butterflies which I adhered on my Neenah Desert Storm card base. I then added a stitched frame using my Uni ball Signo white gel pen – I am obsessed with the stitched line lately 🙂 I then stamped the sentiment from Avery Elle – cake and candles – one of my favourite stamp sets for birthdays. I created an ombre effect using Archival inks – Manganese Blue and Deep Purple. I think it looks so cool against the “craft” cardstock. I then added some sequins coordinating with the colours of butterflies and the card was finished! Let me know what you think!

Butterfly card with lots of embossing

Hi guys!

Today I would like to share with you an inspirational card I made for the last challenge on Sister Act card challenge.

Unfortunately August 21th will be our last challenge for now come and join us – Anything Goes!

First I created the background using Bo Bunny stamps – Flutter. I used three different sizes of butterflies and stamped them all around the watercolour paper in Versa Fine onyx black ink. I then heat embossed them with Wow clear embossing powder. After that I used Stabilo 68 pens to colour in the butterflies, then I sprayed the whole page heavily with water so that the colours mix together and create the watercolour look. I then cut the panel across and left the top and bottom part that I added on top of green card base. I stamped the Happy Birthday sentiment from Avery Elle – Cake and Candles. and added some sequins. I also used my black marker to add the frames.

Clearly Besotted cards and colouring with Stabilo 68

Hello crafty friends!

Today I would like to finally share with you the cards I made using my new Clearly Besotted stamps. I made two wedding cards using the florals from the Love Quotes II set. Lovely set with great flowers and sentiments, perfect for weddings. I made two video to share with you the process.

First one shows me colouring the flowers and leaves using Stabilo 68 pens as watercolours. You will see the numbers of pens I used in the video.

1 (1)

Second video shows how I created cards using the previously coloured flowers. I really enjoyed creating these cards using Clearly Besotted stamp set I could not believe I only now bought from them! I for some reason thought they were an American brand and I did not want to risk ordering from them because of shipping charges… Turned out they are based in the UK and shipping is amazing! You should definitely check them out I am recommending them only because I truly love them and I think they are great value for money I am not in any way associated with the company.

I really love how the flowers turned out and as you know I love vibrant colours so Stabilo 68 pens are truly my favourite! I am yet to try out the Zig real brush watercolour markers 🙂

I think my favourite is the blue purpled flower 🙂 For the background on that card I used Jennifer McGuire’s idea with using the stitched border dies from Lawn Fawn to cover the whole background. I just love the look of that stitching! I also adhered a few sequins which hopefully do not look out of place 😉

Smooshed birthday card

Hello crafty friends!

Today I have another cardmaking video for you on my you tube channel and blog 🙂

I once again played with the shooshing technique! I simply love it! It makes me happy to use my distress inks this way and hope you will enjoy the card and the video as well! This time it was really quick to make and I love how the inks blended together and created new colours!
