Challenged by Family: ep. 1

Hello and happy New Year! I am so excited to start 2021 with a challenge.. or two πŸ™‚

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 πŸ™‚

I am also joining the lovely and talented V. in her Just Stash January.

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).

Here is the card.

Closer look.

Christmas Card With Stamp Club

Hi! Today I am sharing a Christmas card created with just a normal floral stamp set by Tonic Studios, Stamp Club – Heartfelt Corsage.

Still available at Tonic UK and Tonic USA.

I stamped and die cut few of the florals and colored them in red and white (well, grey and violet for a white look).

Christmas Craft Creations – Music 2

Hi and welcome back to our challenge at Christmas Craft Creations blog. October’s theme is Christmas Music and I have another example to share πŸ™‚

These two little critters are travelling for the holidays and singing (or listening to the radio). If you haven’t guessed it yet, it’s the Jingle Bells song πŸ™‚

To make the ride more fun, I have the car popped on an action wobble.

For the background I used Distress inks: Chipped Sapphire, Seedless Preserves and Scattered Straw for the sky and Tumbled Glass and Broken China for the road/snow.

Here is a link to my video with all the details on how I assembled this card:

I used images from these Lawn Fawn stamp sets and cut them out with the corresponding dies:

Shadow Box Card

Hi! Today I’m sharing this shadow box card. I have always wanted to make one πŸ™‚ 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. I’ll post a detailed tutorial once I have a little bit more free time πŸ™‚

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).

With this project I’m entering the PB Challenge #32 – October.

Thank you for visiting and have a great day!

Christmas Craft Creations – Music

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 πŸ™‚

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 πŸ™‚ 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 a prize πŸ™‚ I hope you will get inspired to play along with us!

Have a great day!

Penguins Birthday Party

Hi, friends! Remeber my Summer penguin card? I decided to continue the story and create an Autumn scene card for our Team Tiny hop for the month of October. And because the theme is Birthday, I made an outdoor Birthday party πŸ™‚ Same as my previous penguin card, I used the All Four Seasons stamp set along with Scene It More and Scene It Seasons all by Clearly Bessoted… yes, I think I have an obsession with this stamp company πŸ™‚ I added some more images from few more stamp sets to make the party more fun. I used mainly Nuvo markers and few Copics as well.

You can check how I made it here:

As always, thank you so much for stopping by!

Christmas Craft Creations – Shaped Card

Hi! Today I am sharing my project for the Christmas Craft Creations challenge blog πŸ™‚

This month’s theme is Shaped Card so I decided to make a round one. For my cardbase I simply cut out two circles, scored one at like 1 inch and adhered them together only on that part. I used a Marianne Design’s doily die and Nellie’s Choice Conifer branches dies. The poinsettia and the leaves are from Simpn Says Stamp’s The Magic Of Christmas set and I colored them with my Copic markers (kind of a no-line coloring).

Penguins on Vacation

Hello! These little penguins decided to spend their summer vacation on the beach: having some yummy ice cream, building sand castles, swimming and surfung and just having fun.

For this slimline card I used three Clearly Besotted stamp sets:

  • All Four Seasons
  • Scene It Seasons
  • Scene It More

I stamped the two beach images at the two opposite sides of my card panel. Then I stamped all of the penguins and the other small images. I joined the first two stamped images together by just drawing the shore line and creating an island using a black pen . I put masks on all and used distress inks for the sand and the sky. Once that was done, I colored all with alcohol markers and added some more details to the sand and the sea. I used snow marker for the sea foam, Glossy Accents on some of the accessories and clear Wink of Stella.

Once all was dry, I matted my card panel onto kraft cardstock and adhered all onto my card base.

Penguins on their summer vacation.

I think I’ll be back with more penguin activities cards πŸ™‚

Thank you for stopping by and have a fun day!
