Hi and welcome! Today I’m sharing my DT card for Christmas Craft Creations challenge for the month of March. The theme is Christmas Flowers and you can see the details here.
I used the Christmas Rose Bouquet stamp set by Wplus9 and colored it with Copic markers and fussy cut it out. I used embossing folder by We R memory keepers from the Basic Stripes set and lightly ink blended distress ink in brushed corduroy. I added a frame popped on foam tape and also a sentiment from Lawn Fawn set. I also added some splatters and Nuvo Crystal drops in Caramel Latte.
Hi and welcome! It’s again time for the Squirrels Gone Nuts hop and this is my most favorite time of the month! The theme for March is Green with Special Cardstock (we always have a theme and randomly selected supply or technique). If you have arrived here from the wonderful Anna, it means that you are on the right track.
I knew right away that I’ll be making a Spring card and I had the perfect stamp set Finally Spring by Create a Smile (bought it in December but never used). I loved seeing the snowdrops in my Grandma’s garden as a kid and I knew that soon Spring comes.
I stamped the images on newish to me paper Claire Fontaine DCP with Lawn Fawn Jet Black ink. I used YG17 and YG03 Copic markers for the green parts and BV00, C1 and C0 for the petals. Also BG000 to outline all. I fussy cut the images out. For background I used Craft Perfect handcrafted paper called Geometric Galaxy. For a bit more interest I cut twice a frame out of white cardstock. Dies are from Tonic Craft kit 14 and if you still haven’t figured it out, I try to use dies from these kits every month 🙂 . I stamped and heat embossed in clear my sentiment onto a tag from another Tonic Craft kit, I believe it was number 32. I used leftover piece of white/green twine to attach the tag to the frame. I added foam squares behind the top parts of the snowdrops for a bit more dimension.
Once I had all adhered onto a white cardbase, I added a light green sequin on the knot of the twine and filled it in with Nuvo Crystal Glaze. Lastly, added clear Wink of Stella.
This month I have also a video:

Hello and welcome! This is our second instalment of the Squirrels Gone Nuts year-long hop. Theme for February is Friendship with a Shaker and you should have arrived here from the amazing V.
I always connect Friendship with Flowers so a floral stamp was a must. I picked Waffle Flower’s Bouquet Builder 3 (barely used). I remember receiving it two years ago on my birthday and there was a sweet note from the shop owner; that really made my day. I even found already stamped images in my scrap box. Not so perfectly stamped on few places but that wasn’t bothering me. So at this point I had to decide how to make the shaker. Originally, I wanted to use a shaker window (never used before) but it simply wouldn’t work. So I looked through my Tonic Craft kits (rarely used) and in kit 13 there was the perfect die to create the window. Picture of the used supplies below. The sequin mix was in the same order as the stamp set 🙂
I die cut two panels with the stitched rectangle die (size A6). On the first one I marked on all four sides 1.5 cm from the stitching and made guide lines with a pencil. I also marked the centre of the panel and also the die I was going to use. Then I lined it up as shown on the picture and ran it through my die cutting machine. After that, I aligned the die with the top pencil line and again cut it out. Now my shaker window was ready.
I used my Copic markers to color the florals and I tried to use colors as close as possible to the colors of my sequin mix.
On my second panel I ink blended Distress inks in Scattered Straw, Worn Lipstick and Seedless Preserves. It was time to assemble the shaker.
I managed to hide those not so perfect places with aditional images and the sentiments from SSS – Tiny Words stamp set. Added Wink of Stella in clear on all of the flowers and that was it.
Hello and welcome! Today I’m sharing my card for the January’s Christmas Craft Creations challenge. The theme is “Ribbon or Twine” and you can see the details on how to enter here. You have time till February 9th.
For my card I used supplies from my stash: already colored and die cut unicorn from Lawn Fawn’s stamp set and a dry embossed with stencil piece of cardstock (I am taking part in V’s Just Stash January challenge).
I stamped and die cut scarf and lots of gifts, then colored them with Copic markers and added details with sparkly gel pen. I used Distress inks to add color to the dry embossed panel. Lastly, I created “patterend paper” by stamping snowflake with rainbow colors around the edges of my card panel. I also stamped small snowflakes all around with gold Delicata ink and did a little bit of ink blending on the raised snowflakes.
To put the card together, first I wrapped twine around the dry embossed piece, then popped it on foam squares over a slightly larger mirrored card piece and then adhered all onto the rainbow snowflake panel (adhered onto my card base). Then I added the images, some on foam squares, some adhered flat. Added the sentiment and a bow out of the twine. Added few gold sequins and that was it.
Here is a video showing my process:

Hello and happy New Year! I am so excited to start 2021 with a challenge.. or two 🙂
After the holidays I didn’t know what to make so I asked my family to help me out by choosing a stamp set. They not only did that but also gave me a note with details on what my card should be. This was so much fun so we decided to turn it into series 🙂
In Episode 1 I share how I made Glowing Galaxy Infinity Shaker card following the instructions my husband and daughter gave. Here I’m showing just the finished card but you can see the whole process in my video (also how it glows in the dark).
Hi! Today I’m sharing this shadow box card. I have always wanted to make one 🙂 After many tries, I finally got it so that the size is A6 (European) when flat, which means that it perfectly fits in a standard envelope. UPDATE: Video tutorial added at the end of the post.
I used “Seasonal Scenes” and “Naughty Or Mice?” stamp sets by Clearly Besotted to create the little scene inside my shadow box. I colored the images with Copic markers and also used stencil and distress inks to create wallpapers and carpet inside the home. For the outside I used distress inks and a brick stamp from one of my Tonic Craft kits, so that the shadow box looks like a house.
The sentiment is from “Cosy Christmas” stamp set (again by Clearly Besotted) and the die cuts were just some leftovers from last year’s Christmas projects (from Tonic Craft kits).
Hi! It’s a new month and we are having our new challenge at Christmas Craft Creations. I’m jumping in with the launch team but I’ll have one more card to share when my team’s turn is. Christmas is coming closer so I really need to focus more on making those projects 🙂
October’s theme is Christmas Music so when I saw the digital stamp Angel Tart at 7 Kids Craft Store I thought she looks like singing and will be perfect. I colored her with Copic markers but I don’t have a video showing the process. However, I have a video on how I made the rest of the card.
I used Picture It Christmas background stamp by Clearly Besotted and also stamped twice a present from another stamp set. I made an attempt at creating Northern Lights with a twist. Because I don’t have wide variety of blue markers, I tried using distress ink on top and yey, it worked 🙂 I ink blended light blue for snowy hills and colored the rest of the images with my Copics. I used white gloss spray for falling snow and I also added few music notes around the angel. I thought that ‘We wish you a Merry Christmas’ is just the perfect sentiment for this card. Lastly I added some more snow with white gel pen and Nuvo Crystal glaze on the ornaments and bows.

Please, check the project inspiration from the rest of the team. Challenge closes November 10th and we have aprize 🙂 I hope you will get inspired to play along with us!
