For this card I used papers from Authentique - Glistening Collection and stamps from Hero Arts. I didn't have silver paper so I heat embossed the edges of the papers in silver embossing powder.

Welcome back to the continuing celebration of the last challenge this year at Holly Jolly.

This time I'm showing you a shaker card I made. I used an image called Christmas Snowman from QKR Stampede.

As usually, I colored the image with Copic markers.  Papers are Vintage Frost Basic from Maja Design. Poinsettia die is from Magnolia and the frame dies are from Mama Elephant.

To create a shaker card I used some fun foam and die-cut it after I cut out the paper and the dies were still in the same position.

Hello everyone and happy Tuesday. I hope you had a great beginning of the week.
We are here with the new challenge at Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge. 




For this card, I decided to use my new Spellbinder Scalloped Borders dies. I cut them from white cardstock and adhered them on the red cardstock to create a border on top and bottom.
Word "merry" is diecut from Hero Arts - Merry Stamp and Cuts and the word Christmas is a stamp from the same collection. For both I used a gold pigment inkpad.

Moon Flower Fairy

Hello. I hope you are enjoining your weekend.
A few months ago I found a site with an adorable Fairy digi-stamps called Moon Flower.
Of course I bought a few of them, downloaded them on my computer and soon after forgot about them.
After some time I found their Facebook page and joined them.
Ladies there do a great job, so now I decided to participate in their challenge.
Yesterday I had a blast creating this card.
It's a very girly card, but I already know who I'll send it to.

I used Tumbelina Faery for this project (you can get this digi if you join the Moon Flower Facebook page). I love how serene she looks. I colored the image with Copic markers.
Papers used are from Maja Design called Summer Crush. Dies are from various companies.
To make her wings more sparkly I added some clear Wink of Stella on her wings.









Thanks for stopping by.

Welcome back to another fun sketch at Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge. 
This one has so much possibilities. First I planed to make it with circles, then diamonds, but at the end I decided to go with hexagons, just like Michelle did on her sketch.





For this card I used papers from Authentique - Strong collection. It is on the masculine side, so I made a Thank you card that my kids can use for their friends or teachers.
I think I will made a bunch of these cards, since it wasn't too hard to make. The hexagon shapes are  from a die from Papertrey Ink. The sentiment stamp is from Mama Elephant.

Welcome back Holly Jolly fans. We are back with another challenge. The theme of this one is

 Inspired by a Christmas Carol.

As always we have some great sponsors and this time they are  Lacy Sunshine, Dr. Digi and Melonheadz

My card was inspired by the Christmas carol called O Tannenbaum or in English Oh Christmas Tree.
On Wikipedia you can listen to the first verse in German and then in English performed by chorus of US Army Band - Perishing's Own.

For this card I chose another adorable digi stamp from Lacy Sunshine called Bashful Boo's presents from Santa.
 I colored the image with Distress inks. I didn't use too much water so the colors stayed quite bold.
Papers are from Whimsy Stamps - Christmas Time collection.
Dies are from Marianne and La la land Crafts except for poinsettia, which is from Magnolia Doohickey. I painted it with red Stickless to add some sparkle and after it dried also with white paint.



Thanks for stopping by.

Hello everybody. I hope you have a nice day.
Here at Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge we have a new sketch to play with. I hope you will check what the rest of our team created and be inspired enough to join us.




I made this card is for my nephew who will celebrate his 9th birthday soon. He is on vacation here with us this month. I know this is not the best card for a 9 year old, since he's more into gaming, but since he often checks out how I make cards and likes my coloring, I think he'll be ok with it.

I used a bunch of different products on this card.
Animals are from the Mama Elephant - Carnival Cupcakes stamp set, which I colored with Distress markers and diecut with coordinating dies. The balloon and number 9 are cut with a die from La-la-land Crafts. I colored both with watercolors and then covered balloon with Glossy Accents and the number 9 with a glitter brush.
Sentiment stamp is from Technique Tuesday.
Grass and scalloped diecuts are also colored with watercolors.
