CCC – December Blog Hop

Hello! It’s time for our last Collected Crafty Collabs hop. Theme for the month is Snowman/Snowpeople and the bonus theme is Sparkle.

You should have came from the fabulous Anna’s blog and I’ll tell you a little bit later about your next stop.

It has been so much fun finding all those ‘forgotten’ supplies and making something with them 🙂 I decided to use a stamp set that I haven’t used for a whole year! Avery Elle’s Snow Fun. I love this snowman so much that I had to use him. Just look at his face 🙂 I stamped him on watercolor paper and first I created the background. Kinda just playing with the watercolors and watching the water doing the magic. Once I was happy with the wintery scene, I colored the snowman. And once all was dry, I added white texture paste through falling snow stencil.

For the bonus sparkle theme I applied Nuvo Glacier paste in Frostbite around the edges of a white cardstock piece (same size as my card base). Once that was dry, I adhered the watercolored panel and then all onto my cardbase. I also added 3 glitter snowflakes and clear Wink of Stella to the white part of the snowman’s hat. Lastly, I added Nuvo Crystal Glaze on the nose and the gift’s bow.

I managed to film my process:

So this is all from me. I hope your holidays are merry and bright and the next year better, healthier and happier!

And now please head over to see what lovely Val has created 🙂 After her is the sweet Marie!

Hugs,

CCC July Blog Hop

Hi! It’s again time for the Collected Crafty Collabs (CCC) hop 🙂 The theme for July is Outdoors and/or Patterned Paper. I really love the idea of digging through my (not so big) stash and finding those supplies that are left unloved for quite some time.

The stamp set that I chose to use is Party Pals from Avery Elle and it’s one of my first ones. I haven’t used it for over an year! Patterened paper is something that I struggle with in card making. I have mainly 12×12 and 8×8 paper packs which are great for my mini albums but not really for cards… I don’t know how to incorporate them plus I love to color. So, I went on Pinterest and looked through the hundreds of card sketches but none of them seemed to be “The One” that I would want to use. Since this didn’t help I started looking through my stash and realized that I have papers from a cardmaking magazine that I never used. So I picked two patterns that were kinda going well together. I stamped the panda and the kitty holding the banner and masked them so I can do a simple ink blending for my outdoor scene. I didn’t get a good blend tho so I blame the cardstock 😀 It is Transotype – Perfect Coloring Paper, first time using it for ink blending and have used it just few times for coloring (not really liking it). I used Copic markers to color the stamped images. For the assembly of the card I didn’t do anything fancy, just glued all down flat. As finishing touches I added Nuvo Crystal Glaze on the noses and over the letters of the banner and some iridescent star confetti here and there.
